Automation points the way to the future
Automation is a growing trend in warehouses and beyond, driven by the need for 24/7 real-time track and trace solutions from dispatch to delivery. Unsurprisingly, forklifts have become a focus for automation, with the promise of 25% productivity increases.
Rugged technology, such as TOUGHBOOK tablets and handheld devices, are the ideal companions to an automated forklift fleet, displaying information on product location, placement, and order priority, and sharing it via Wi-Fi or 5G/4G capabilities for real-time communications and data exchange.
And that’s only the beginning. The combination of your forklifts and our mobile solutions devices opens a whole world of possibility for your business.
Your reliable, multi-purpose solution
Don’t let our ergonomic and lightweight designs fool you. TOUGHBOOK devices are heavy hitters.
Every aspect of our software has been tailored to make warehouse working a breeze: from built-in voice picking capability, to easy integration with your WMS to bring you lag-free working.
Integrated options such as barcode readers and RFID readers, hot-swap battery features and flexible docking, means you can take one device from forklift to desk. It’s time to say hello to warehouse management that doesn’t stop – all in one compact set of devices.
Vehicle & Forklift mounting solutions
Workers on the front-line operating machinery such as forklifts are often at a disadvantage when it comes to communication with central command, and remaining across the requirements of a WMS when on the floor.
Working in conjunction with our partner network, Panasonic TOUGHBOOK Total Forklift Solutions ensure these critical workers remain connected through our docking solutions, leveraging wireless bluetooth, barcode, and software technologies. Whether it’s picking and putting away, managing inventory, or tracking and recording assets, forklift operators can access real-time information from the central command.
Driver safety & security
Your operators need instant access to digital information at their fingertips. But nothing should compromise their safety or your security.
Our screen-blanking software automatically disables device screens when vehicles are moving, reducing the risk of driver distraction. In addition, automatic screen lock on idle devices ensures any sensitive data remains fully protected.
- Choose the best positioning for your mounts – including sidebar, overhead and windscreen
- Meet all safety regulations – our docking recommendations always adhere to the latest safety guidelines
- Meet every working challenge – our specialised docks and mounts are tested to TOUGHBOOK standards for vibration, humidity and temperature
- Select from off-the-shelf options where backwards compatibility allows for integration with existing technology
Optimised wireless connectivity
To guarantee the smooth running of your operations, your drivers require instant and uninterrupted access to vital stock information, delivery scheduling, and communications. They also need to be able to capture and share data on the go. No delays. No downtime.
