Companies and entire industries are increasingly turning to rugged tablets on a regular basis to help meet their needs in the field. If you’re thinking of moving forward with rugged technology, you may be a bit overwhelmed at where to even begin. Before you make a purchase, though, it may help to consider each of the following.
- Quality: More than anything else, you want to make certain that you’re getting a high quality rugged product. It’s sometimes tough to judge that before you make a purchase, especially as unlike with consumer products there won’t be as many reviews or other companies who are using those devices. To help you assess device quality we offer loan devices allowing you to test equipment without making a purchase commitment.
- Features: This is almost as important as the quality of the device. The last thing you should have to do is compromise just because you want something that’s rugged. You’re making a long term investment when you’re buying into the rugged market, so you shouldn’t have to decide whether you get what you want. Instead, you should be able to select everything your company needs, only in a rugged version.
- Cost: This is easily one of the most important features for most companies because the bottom line is becoming so much more important in today’s tough business climate. While you want to get a rugged mobile device with all of the features you need and want, you also want to get one that fits within your budget, so don’t factor it out completely as you shop. Also remain realistic about cost, if it seems too good to be true it frequently is, rugged devices are more expensive than comparable consumer devices and a reliable provider will seek to cover your warranty effectively and for the long term.
