Providing mobile workers with computing devices that assist them in the field creates great opportunities to improve productivity. To be most effective, mobile computing devices must not only perform the tasks they are required to do, but also be designed to meet the needs, abilities, and limitations of workers and their work environments. This means ergonomics, a scientific discipline that concerns itself with finding the perfect fit between people and their work to improve employee job satisfaction. Find out how an ergonomically designed device contributes to making mobile workers happier and more productive in their jobs.
Providing mobile workers with computing devices that help them do their job in the field creates great opportunities to improve organizational efficiency and productivity. When deploying into mobile environments, ruggedness is a key consideration - not only must devices be able to support the application, they must also withstand the physical challenges inherent to potentially tough environments. Learn valuable insights to help evaluate the ruggedness of a mobile device and determine its fit for a given scenario.
