Getting the Most Bang for the Buck with Devices

The mobile devices that we use everyday aren’t just a critical tool, they’re an investment.  Most of us want to get every ounce of value out of them that we can.  The trick is to balance getting that value without putting the critical tasks that our tools execute at risk.

Industrial handhelds are at a tipping point when it comes to operating systems.  Windows Embedded 6.5 (a.k.a Win Mobile) is hitting end of life on January 12, 2020.  So for all of those IT administrators, operations teams and budget managers that have been wringing the value out of those older devices – you need to start planning your migration.  Now.

There are still different options available to make sure that transitions and procurements aren’t painful.  Check out our white paper Navigating the Challenges of Mobile Devices & Their Changing Platforms for some approaches that may work well for your team.
