Seven keys to success
TOUGHBOOK products feature seven fundamental technologies that make them invaluable to utilities companies and field engineers around the globe.
BUSINESS INTERFACE TECHNOLOGY
DYNAMIC PERFORMANCE TECHNOLOGY
What does this mean for your organisation?
The potential for dramatic improvements in response times, route planning and job management, as well as increased first-time fixes, higher repair quality, better customer service and greater profitability. All this, while cutting downtime and costs significantly.
World-class service and support
From pre- to post-sales, and from product implementation to roll-out, we work in close collaboration with our utilities customers to ensure everything runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
Our specialist, and often tailored support makes all the difference: especially when it requires the deployment of hundreds or even thousands of devices across national and multi-national organisations.
Stay connected on the move
The ‘connected vehicle’ is a central pillar of business today. Giving utilities engineers technology and in-vehicle equipment that’s durable and optimises connectivity, even when they’re travelling, is essential to remaining competitive.
TOUGHBOOK delivers everything you need to take your office on the road.
• Instant access to real-time information
• Digital documentation on the go – e.g. manuals, service history or spare-part information
• World-class navigation tools and job schedule updates
• Unrivalled data-sharing abilities directly from the vehicle environment
• Access to power, whether on the road or on-site
Customised vehicle integration
We offer a complete range of vehicle mounting solutions and services, from consultancy right through to in-vehicle installation. We also a range of configurations, and the ability to create bespoke solutions where required.
No compromising on passenger safety
And as you’d expect from TOUGHBOOK technology, our docking solutions are pushed to the very limits of endurance. To achieve all relevant safety certification, and more, we test each model for vehicle impact and vibrations, ensuring that everything remains secure in the event of an accident, to protect those in the vehicle.
The price is right
It’s all too easy to be tempted by the small costs and big promises that consumer tablets and mobile PCs boast. After all, they still get most of the job done, mostly well, most of the time. Right? Wrong. Non-specialised tablets and handhelds aren’t built to withstand the harsh conditions often faced by utilities workers. So the hidden costs soon mount up:
• Product failuresDowntime
• Efficiency issues
• Support requirements
