Vehicle mounted computers are a game changer when it comes to warehouse operations.

Fixed or demountable mobile computers can be used to access inventory management systems, scan and pick products, and increase communication between employees.

Here are five ways they can benefit your business and why we recommend Datalogic hardware for the job:

Productivity

Vehicle mounted devices can have a significant impact on warehouse productivity, as they are able to decrease the number of errors made throughout receiving, picking and shipping activities.

These devices can ensure your workforce maintains connected, whether this is on the road, or through real-time data access – saving significant time and costs.

Datalogic vehicle mount computers can also help you assess product quality, capture photos, and provide real-time feedback. It has everything you could need, in just one device.

Versatility

The Datalogic Rhino II™ Vehicle Mount Computer can fit various space and mounting options, including brackets, RAM mounts and ABCD or QWERTY external keyboards.

They are designed to fit seamlessly into forklifts and other warehouse vehicles, as well as transitioning from a vehicle to a working site with little hassle.

You can also purchase the Datalogic Fixed Mounting Bracket and RAM Mount with round base, to further improve the products versatility and ease of use.

Durability

Warehouses are often packed full of inventory, machinery and employees, which can make them difficult to navigate and leave you face-to-face with constant hazards.

Therefore, a vehicle mount device needs to be able to withstand the toughest environments, including dust, accidental knocks and spillages.

You may even operate in a warehouse with a cold storage room, and an outdoor area – so your mobile device will need to be able to adapt to extreme temperature changes.

A rugged solution is required for warehouses, and Datalogic devices can provide that!

The Datalogic Rhino II™ Vehicle Mount Computer has an IP65/IP67 rating, as well as advanced Gorilla® Glass touch screen technology and can survive 4-foot vertical drops.

It even has an anti-glare multi-touch screen, which you can use while wearing gloves.

Connectivity 

Datalogic offers a choice of Windows Embedded Compact 7 (WEC7), Windows 10 IoT Enterprise operating systems, as well as Android 7.1 Nougat.

Included are various Datalogic Utilities, and on the WEC7 models, Wavelink® Avalanche™ and Terminal Emulation are already pre-loaded and pre-licensed. This Enterprise Mobility Management system means you can manage all employee devices from one place, and deploy apps, updates and control employee access.

Ease of use

Vehicle mounted devices are extremely useful in warehouse applications, as they are small enough to fit into your pocket and are simple to navigate.

The Datalogic Rhino II™ Vehicle Mount Computer is also well balanced for ergonomic use and has a standard or auto-range 2D imager. It’s just like using a tablet, and when needed it can be easily attached onto a forklift – with just one hand!
