We are at the beginning of a process that could radically change the way businesses operate. Need based applications are being data driven which can provide the key benefits of better productivity, enhanced customer service and lower costs.

Benefits will also come from better and more up-to-date computer data bases. These will include improved response to customer needs and reduction of staff requirements — both a consequence of mobile data devices accessing central computer systems directly without the need for operator intervention.

Mobile data and computer terminals rapidly speed up turnaround time on job and task allocation, order processing and quotations.

Digital data through radio transmission can include either short status messages or full text messages.

Data transfer in private and error free modes are ensured by using the latest and most advanced equipment available.
