New Rugged Microsoft Surface 2 Bundle

We love the Surface as a cost effective versatile platform for mobile computing so we recently launched our New Rugged Microsoft Surface Go 2 Bundle.

Watch the Microsoft launch Video. Read some of the reviews The Verge, PCMag, Toms Guide.

What’s New On Surface Go 2

  • Larger – By reducing the screen bezels The Go 2 gets an additional .5 inch (12.5mm)  of display overall but keeps the dimensions of the enclosure the same as the original and maintains the 3:2 aspect ratio.
  • Brighter – now 220 PPI for sharper resolution.
  • Faster – 8th Gen Intel m3 Processor for much greater performance capabilities than its predecessor.
  • Jump Tall Buildings – not really but the battery is now rated at 10 hours Vs 9 with the previous model.
  • NFC sensor – A new addition great for mobile payment applications.
  • Bluetooth: Upgraded from 4.1 to 5.0. 5Mbps bandwidth in comparison to 2.1 Mbps on the previous version.

COVID-19 How to Unlock Cash Flow During The Crisis

COVID-19 How to Unlock Cash Flow During The Crisis

At the time of writing we are all used to the lockdown across many European and African Countries. Unfortunately the latest government comment here in the UK seems to think it may last some months so everything suggests that this is only the beginning of the crisis. In the short term many businesses can expect to be still closed into May.

This will continue to put a lot of pressure on the liquidity of many companies.

Whilst we are in the current crisis many of our clients are thinking hard about how to complete current enterprise mobility projects whilst at the same time figuring out how to unlock cash flow.  Many get caught between a rock and a hard place – complete a value added project that will improve task workflow and efficiency or stop until the crisis clears. Leasing remains a solid option especially for SME’s.

Jason Turner at our partner Reality Finance says: “Preserving capital has never been more important than it is now so we’ve been working at great lengths to provide alternative payment solutions that are unlocking customers cash flow so they can get the equipment and services they need.”

It is thought that the Covid-19 crisis will change the way businesses and markets work. In a low touch economy we will need to get used to much reduced travel and fundamental shifts in consumer behaviour. How long things take to return to normal is anyone’s guess and the impact will be relative across. However we can be confident that companies adopting technology that saves time, reduces errors and allows the for smart deployment of labour will be in a better position to pick up business during a back to normal upswing in demand.

Five Key Enterprise Mobility Trends for 2020

Enterprise Mobility Trends for 2020

Five Key Enterprise Mobility Trends for 2020

Advancing technology and a shift in work habits have seen more employees working out of the office by leveraging the use of mobile devices and cloud based services to improve business tasks.
Creating solutions that map processes and increase productivity is a moving target. So what do we think will be the five key enterprise mobility trends for 2020 ?

1. IoT- the Internet of Things

It’s everywhere! a system that connects all your devices that can exchange data with each other through human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. Statista predicts the installed base of IoT devices is forecast to grow to almost 31 billion worldwide by 2020, and 75 billion by 2025.

Using IoT can bring many benefits to businesses. Reduced cost, next generation real time tracking, and seamless work flow. All of which create a more efficient and smooth running business

Some Companies have already introduced the use of the IoT within their warehouse systems. Amazon the global e-commerce giant have made significant movement in warehouse management automation. They have 493 warehouses covering around 180 square million feet globally. 100,000 robots are in use so far.

Another sector that can make use of the IoT is healthcare. According to Frost and Sullivan, the internet of medical things could be expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 26.2% and reach $ 72,000 million by 2021.

Gartner believes that the providers of Internet of Things platforms are currently fragmented and would benefit greatly from cobbling together a better ecosystem where data is shared more broadly. 451 Research believe that at the moment a relatively small number – Nineteen percent of companies are using, planning to use or will be evaluating the use of IoT in their organisations.

2. 5G

4.5 billion Mobile users worldwide are subscribed to 4G data plans, Ericsson predicts that figure to rise to 7.7 billion by 2021. But now we have the introduction of 5G. Tele companies everywhere are now testing out fifth generation mobile networks.

A comparison between 4G and 5G, would see users accessing 4G networks to download one feature- length film in eight minutes. The New York times reported users with 5G connections would be able to complete the same activity in fewer than five seconds.

5G will enable developments in lots of industries and will leverage the adoption of IoT. A hugely significant one being healthcare. Qualcomm imagines a future in which patients who may need extra monitoring, such as a person who recently suffered a heart attack, could wear special sensors to track their vitals at home- if something goes wrong hospitals or doctors can act quickly and effectively due to the speed of 5G. Market research future projects that the global telemedicine market will increase at a compound annual growth rate of 16.5 percent from 2017 to 2023.

3. UEM Adoption Will Accelerate

Increasing numbers of IoT endpoints including mobile devices are spurring businesses to secure them more businesses seeing the benefit of Unified Endpoint Management.

Recent polling by Enterprise Mobility Exchange suggests UEM adoption reached 25% during 2019. In large part due to the continued adoption of Windows 10 as one of the key Enterprise Mobility Trends for 2020

4. Further Decline of the Desktop

Technology is forever advancing and is becoming more mobile. Seems like Desktops other than for gaming are in serious decline.  IDC predicts that desktops will face a year over year decline of 1.9%. Whilst Notebooks/Mobile Workstations and Detachable Tablets are expected to take 53% of all Personal computer shipments by 2023

5. Microsoft Surface Sales Continue to Get Stronger

The Surface is becoming a more common sight in Enterprise deployments. From a rough start in 2013 Microsoft have managed to build a portfolio of devices that combine what users expect from a mobile device whilst addressing the productive goals of an enterprise project. Although the first Quarter of the current financial year  showed a slight dip due to a large scale product refresh Surface sales year on year over the last four years are growing at a compounded rate of around 20%+per year.

Microsoft do not spilt out sales by division but it is thought that the Surface is now accounts for around $2 billion of Microsoft’s $33 billion quarterly turnover.

Are You Battling to Manage All Your Mobile Devices ?

Are You Battling to Manage All Your Mobile Devices ? 7

 

In the earlier days of enterprise mobility, Mobile Device Management software was developed to manage a host of mobile devices across an organisation, both inside and outside the premises, and across regions and borders. MDM manages all your mobile devices across platforms, such as iOS, MacOS, Android, Windows and the Internet of Things, providing enhanced control and visibility.

Rugged Microsoft Surface Case Drop Test

Rugged Microsoft Surface Case Drop Test

 

Rugged Microsoft Surface Case Drop Test 8

 

To test the durability of a competitors Surface Pro case, the boffins at MobileDemand performed a head-to-head drop test against the MobileDemand rugged Surface Pro case. Tablets with cases were dropped from 4-foot to plywood over concrete. The goal of the test is to end up with a fully functional unit showing no physical damage after 26 total drops to all corners edges and faces.

Both products claim MIL-STD-810G, which is a series of tests that are designed to determine how well a device can put up with general physical abuse while in operation. To pass the drop test portion, up to 5 devices may be used to pass all 26 drops. MobileDemand takes it to the extreme and uses only ONE tablet to pass all drops!

Watch out for vendors not specifically stating a drop height or being short of drop detail for their product.

Does this make your Surface indestructible  – certainly not and we don’t recommend you try the rugged Microsoft Surface case drop test at home but its good to know we have thought about what sort of punishment your tablet might encounter.
