Today’s motor vehicle is no longer for transportation only – it’s also a highly advanced mobile office that integrates voice, data, video, warning and operating systems. As new technologies evolve, vehicles are becoming more complex – and so do their upfits. Vehicle upfits for mobile offices must solve specific business problems and meet work function requirements, all while accounting for occupant safety and ergonomics concerns – not to mention time and budget constraints.
Maintaining the reliability of mobile computing systems in the field is one of the most challenging aspects of fleet professionals today. These devices must perform critical job functions and maintain data flow in tough operating conditions. While there are several keys to a total mobility solution including Software, Hardware, Connectivity, Docking & Mounting, and Professional Installation; having a reliable continuous power supply is the most critical factor to ensure productivity on the jobsite.
With this year’s Electronic Logging Devices (ELD) mandate looming ahead, it’s important for fleets to understand the impact it has on their business and strategically plan how to implement the new standards. Beyond choosing eligible devices and software to track, manage and share data, consider how those devices will be secured inside a vehicle. The right in-vehicle docking and mounting solution for devices not only protects the fleet’s investment in equipment, but also ensures a safe and comfortable mobile office for drivers – reducing the risk of distraction and increasing productivity.

Omni-channel consumer demand has pushed the connection between shoppers and goods deeper into the supply chain, creating fundamental shifts in DC operations.
There’s no prescriptive approach to establishing true, seamless, anychannel retail commerce, but experts agree on four imperatives to the equation.
Increased online sales volume pushed a Midwestern appliance retailer to find a way to connect its e-commerce platform to ERP software, streamlining the ordering process and decreasing shipping times.
Mobile POS races to the bottom, customer service apps reign supreme, and BYOD begins to make perfect sense.
Take a look at some of the leading companies helping retailers with fulfillment and order management in today’s rapidly changing retail environment.
Consumer expectations of a seamless omni-channel experience are reinventing the supply chain.
Communication between retailers and suppliers will look very different in the near future. In order to meet the increasing demands of the consumer, control costs, and enhance collaboration, retailers and suppliers must improve processes for sharing data and extract as much value as possible from that data. The Trading Partner Interface of the Future, as conceptualized by RVCF, will achieve these goals while strengthening relationships between retailers and suppliers. By exploring the key areas of retailer-supplier communication, this report provides insights into what such a solution would entail and the business benefits it would create. Stakeholders in technology companies should take note that it is our vision that unrestricted, synchronized data sharing is the direction of the future.
Private and public cold storage warehouse providers are challenged by harsh environmental conditions as well as regulatory, safety and traceability concerns in handling sensitive products such as food and pharmaceuticals. The public refrigerated warehouse industry is highly competitive and driven to continually reduce costs and errors.
In today’s supply chain, the only constant is change. Disruptions, whether short-term like a forklift failure, or long-term like a natural disaster, are a fact of life. The supply chains best prepared to adapt to these disruptions will use mobile computing technology that gives them greater flexibility.
