For the transportation specialist
Panasonic TOUGHBOOK is the european market leader for rugged notebooks and tablets.
We work in partnership with rail, road, air, sea and maintenance organisations around the world to deliver fit-for-purpose vehicle-mounted and handheld rugged mobile computing solutions, enabling field workers and engineers to be fully digitally connected wherever they are, come wind, rain, shine or snow.
Mobile working – particularly outdoors – can present its own unique challenges. But giving your workforce specialised rugged solutions can dramatically boost their efficiency, while delivering significant ROI benefits to your business.
Rail, road and maintenance organisations look to TOUGHBOOK when they are:
- Facing high rates of device failures out in the field, impacting on their ability to deliver the best possible service to customers
- Experiencing connectivity issues, and struggling to access critical applications and data in real-time when on the go
- Frustrated with the performance of their current mobile computing solution
- Looking to transition to next-generation mobile working.

Decreased unplanned downtime
With our new Smart Battery technology and specially-adapted power management systems, TOUGHBOOK PCs, tablets and handhelds are made for all-day working on just a single charge.
But battery life inevitably deteriorates over the lifecycle of a device. So we also offer our new Smart Battery Monitor software, which monitors the health of the battery to pre-empt potential issues before they arise.
And with our Smart Battery Warranty Replacement batteries can be sent directly to your field worker, wherever they are, before any disruption to their working day occurs.
