What are Mobile computers and Handheld computers?

Mobile computers provide the processing power, flexibility and instant real-time communication of fixed computers right in the field, where they can be used portably for a literally endless number of efficiency transforming enterprise applications. They come in a variety of form factors, including fixed in-vehicle mobile data terminals, rugged mobile computers and handheld devices. They have transformed business mobility, replacing manual paper based workflows with seamless automated electronic workflows, which connect in real-time to the back office. Micronet’s mobile computers combine the power of a fixed vehicle data terminal with the portability and mobility of the rugged handheld computers. Mobile Computers from Micronet also connect to telematics black boxes, utilising their on-board communications and integrating their GPS and CANbus data where required.

Fleet Telematics and Rugged Mobile Computers

By connecting to existing vehicle telematics black boxes (GPS vehicle tracking units), mobile computers are able to interface with their data, allowing sophisticated and rich software applications that deliver efficiency gains, insight and real-time vehicle, fleet and workforce intelligence. Micronet’s mobile computers are unique in that they connect to existing telematics black boxes, and utilise the GPS and GSM already built in. This avoids the need for a separate simcard, and a separate airtime agreement. This means that Micronet’s rugged mobile computers have a lower total cost of ownership compared to other mobile computers or rugged handheld devices.
