The operator often using a tethered or bluetooth barcode scanner to record locations and products into an inventory or WMS application.
So why are clients looking at using a windows tablet on a forklift instead?
Dedicated large screen fork lift terminals or vehicle mount computers allows users to view data or run a terminal emulation session usually into a warehouse management system. But they tend to be expensive somewhat one dimensional and some still run proprietary operating systems and can have smaller screens than might be expected.
