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.
