A guest blog by Mike Davies UK Marketing Manager at ecom instruments.
Recent innovations in the field of hazardous area mobile computing technology has enabled mobile workers to automate a much wider range of tasks than ever previously possible. In sectors such as oil and gas, biochemical, pharmaceutical manufacturing and other process industries using mobile computing to improve the productivity of workers is key.
How can you boost productivity by taking advantage of this new technology?
The ability to record data on a portable device has made paper-based inspections obsolete, allowing for a greater degree of accuracy efficiency and productivity. Using of an intrinsically safe ATEX Zone 1 certified i.roc Ci70-Ex, workers can remain fully connected while in the field. Built in imaging functionality can help record data and immediately upload it into specific mobile line of business apps and integrate with host systems such as Maximo or SAP.
Rather than waiting until the end of the day to find out the status of key assets mobile workers can also use this technology to communicate data with colleagues in an instant over Wi-Fi or WWAN thus improving the visibility of results around repairs or adjustments. Workers can also communicate with each other using VoIP to stay in touch with each other throughout the day on large sites.
The development of hazardous area mobile computing technology has given mobile workers the ability to focus on the task-in-hand at all times and not have to spend time manually uploading data at the end of each day thereby offering a significant boost in productivity.
With hazardous area mobile computing devices, you can significantly boost the productivity of your workforce and allow them to complete a much wider range of tasks while on the move.
