Hand Held Products throw in GPS connectivity
Hand Held Products is famous for its range of image-based data collection solutions for mobile applications, and the company has just dropped an announcement that it has equipped its Dolphin 7900 Mobile Computer with GPS technology. This upgrade makes the Dolphin 7900 the first and only industrial-grade mobile data collection solution to come with a fully integrated GPS chipset that is currently up for sale to the masses, while the rest of its competition play catch up.
The Dolphin 7900 has been specially designed and constructed for use in field sales and services, courier, utilities, government and route accounting. The integrated high-performance GPS architecture provides users with fast and accurate location-based information for navigation services, mobile asset tracking, and documentation of field service or visitation. It will feature multi-mode wireless connectivity, comprising of GSM/GPRS, wireless LAN and Bluetooth for real-time voice and data communication. When used in tandem with GPS, real-time tracking and management of field-based assets are enabled.
The Dolphin 7900 is also more than capable of reading both linear and 2D barcodes, in addition to capturing digital images and signatures thanks to the Adaptus Imaging Technology 5.0 found inside. This marriage of functions allow customers to use a single, complete and affordable solution without placing additional burden on the company that will indirectly result in support and management costs that arise from using multiple devices simultaneously. According to Senior Product Manager Scott Garmon, “The integration of GPS into the Dolphin 7900 enables enterprises to run new applications that can increase productivity and efficiency, while enhancing customer service. GPS opens new doors to advanced capabilities and, until now, it’s only been available in solutions with inferior durability or limited functionality. With the 7900, organizations can now deploy a comprehensive and extremely reliable solution to their workers in the field.
