Key benefits of a Rugged Tablet PC in Agriculture
So what are the key benefits of a rugged tablet pc in agriculture ? Most importantly our products all utilise Windows 7 Professional so can operate your standard desktop apps and web browser sessions outside all day. This enables staff to access and record relevant information in the field eliminating the need for paper based capture of data which then has to be re-keyed into another system.
Our most popular product in the sector is the T7000. This unit is IP65 and built for the harsh environments of the agriculture industry. T7000 is designed for durability comes with an outdoor readable screen Bluetooth GPS Wi-Fi and 3G.

In our experience there are a number of key agriculture operations where a device like this can help:
- Track animals using RFID and bar code scanning – Watch the Video
- Monitor veterinary care.
- Control water irrigation flow.
- Monitor Seed Trials.
- Pin-point the application of fertilizer.
- Manure management.
- Track growing conditions.
- GPS tracking of agriculture vehicles.
One dairy in the US was using RFID tags for cattle tracking but the devices were proving less than satisfactory. This is where MobileDemand came in and provided the farm with a unit that had superior power and flexibility. Read the Box Canyon Dairy case study
Optimising labour and resources is as important as in any other industry. Key point here is that if the device is to be used literally in the field the unit must be optimised for that enviroment.
