Blog: How Rugged Devices are Transforming Frontline Industries
The workplace is changing, but the need for productivity is constant. Device flexibility, workplace adaptability, and durable tech solutions are crucial.
Among the most significant by-products of the pandemic has been an increased reliance on technology to not only keep business operations afloat, but as a solution for longstanding workflow inefficiencies.
While every industry has had to respond to the pandemic in some form or another, those operating in the fields of retail, construction, engineering, healthcare, manufacturing and logistics, were hit especially hard – ushering in an immediate need for digital tools and technology to get jobs done safely and effectively.
As a global leader in enterprise mobility and information technology, Samsung products and services are designed to meet the mobility and productivity needs of industries that operate in a wide range of environments, from the field to the office, to the warehouse and the road.
Meet the all-new Samsung Galaxy rugged mobile devices, offering a durable and flexible solution for frontline workers. With customizable features and functionality to support day-to-day tasks and defense-grade security, the Galaxy Rugged series is built to support your work, no matter where or what the job demands.
Warehouse workers need rugged mobile devices that can help them access the required applications without worrying about their device being damaged in the process. They also need mobile devices that consolidate multiple solutions, including applications to digitize their workflows and special features like built-in scanning, minimizing the number of devices they have to carry.
Technology to withstand retail demands
What does the future of retail look like? Based on decades of experience working with many of America’s leading store chains on effective IT solutions and compelling digital platforms, we see clear trends emerging. Currently we have 48 customers in the retail sector, and over 73% of our retail customers have been with us for more than five years. The average tenure of our retail customers is 13.375 years. While disruption and uncertainty aren’t going away, neither are brick and mortar stores. But, because of COVID, the line between online and in-store is rapidly being erased, and customers expect to be able to buy where they want, and when they want to.
Forward-thinking retailers have worked on improving omnichannel strategies for years. But the pandemic shifted more customers than ever to digital-first engagements. And with e-commerce on the rise, retailers need technology solutions to help them fulfill a growing number of orders and keep track of inventory. While many retail tasks can be automated, moving products will always require people.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab Active rugged family, which consists of the Galaxy Tab Active Pro and Galaxy Tab Active3 tablets, come with Knox Capture enterprise-grade barcode scanning technology. With the touch of a programmable button, retail workers have a multi-purpose scanning solution at their fingertips to help them complete fulfillment requests efficiently, with a process as intuitive as snapping a photo.
