Getac’s strong R&D capabilities allow it to provide a high level of customisation and all-aspect hardware-software integration solutions. Its products are powering productivity and profitability in many sectors where environmental pressures might, at first glance, seem impossible to overcome.

Time to think vertically…

Vertical markets are huge (and growing), and for resellers, the opportunities are there for the taking. Being able to specify top quality, market-leading products – whilst reaping the rewards of productive working partnerships with suppliers – can lead to significant reseller margins.

Here’s where Getac really shows its true colours. Let’s take a closer look at these sectors…

Oil and Gas

There’s a growing demand for digitization for every stream in the oil and gas industry as businesses look to improve efficiency and connectivity. Companies need mobile applications in hazardous environments for asset reliability and availability, location track and trace, inspections and audits, and workforce management. Getac’s devices put those apps in the hands of pipeline workers and production facility staff, enabling installations, inspections and repairs under extreme conditions.

Ideal for this market is the award-winning F110, which combines best-in-class performance, industry-leading security, a large 11.6” widescreen display and a thin and light design that redefines rugged mobility.

Manufacturing

Shop-floor automation and plant monitoring, inventory and warehouse management, facility management, compliance and inspections –  Getac devices are the backbones of manufacturing operations, giving workers the information and control they need. Right now, manufacturing is seeing growing adoption of Industry 4.0 connected sensors and mobile IoT technologies, plus augmented and virtual reality. Capitalising on this relies on a device that’s ready for it.

Public safety

When it comes to emergency services, rapid reaction is paramount and instant data access and sharing can be a life or death issue. In such environments, paramedics, police or fire teams need suitable bandwidths and devices that operate reliably to ensure effective and seamless collaboration with teams at the command centres.

In life-threatening situations, each second is critical. Vital information needs to be accessed quickly, so that it can be evaluated and acted upon where it and when matters. Add to that the fact that data protection and cyber security are still an important consideration when transmitting, processing and storing any electronic evidence or sensitive information.

Getac’s K120 tablet more than rises to the occasion. It’s used for incident planning and fire ground management and control. It is highly adaptable with hard handle, attachable full-size backlit keyboard and a wide variety of straps and harnesses. This device operates in extreme temperatures and is able to take 6 feet drops. It also handles connectivity and security demands with calm self-assurance.

Transportation

The need for intelligent rugged devices is hugely evident in the transport sector. For starters (and perhaps not always adequately considered)… [s(S-G1] [SV2] they can contribute towards workforce retention. Attracting and holding onto skilled employees requires effective digital transformation throughout the mobile workforce. It means that, overall, people are better able to serve customers and feel more valued while they’re doing it.

In service-centric environments, a breakdown in communication and secure data transfer can erode business all too quickly. Getac is able to mitigate these challenges with solutions that streamline fulfilment processes whilst helping staff to feel more empowered.
