Better Return on Investment (ROI)
A Panasonic Toughbook may be one of the most expensive mobile PC's your organisation ever purchases but it will also be the cheapest one you will ever own. Not only does its Ruggedised technology ensure the longest service life with minimal if any downtime, but a Toughbook will also deliver time and motions savings which add up across it's operational life to deliver an even better ROI. (Return on Investment).
A Practical Example
Consider an organisation which services and maintains part of the local power lines network. Imagine a service operator has to work on a piece of equipment 50m from the side of the road where they must park their van. The technician uses their notebook to access job details, record service data and refer to technical documentation.
Unfortunately on a bright sunny day the technician can't easily read the screen while outside so the notebook is left in the van where it can be more easily read. They may only need access to this information twice but that means a couple of minutes walking back to the van each time.
A Toughbook solution with its antiglare coating, polarised screen and high bright display would mean they could avoid wasting time travelling back to the van. And if it starts to rain, Toughbook's IP65 rating means they will not need to find shelter on the Toughbook's account.
If this type of scenario only occurs once every 5 jobs and only saves 4 minutes each time, across multiple technicians and a three or four year deployment this small increase in efficiency will add up to a lot of increased productivity. This productivity delivers a better customer experience and may mean more jobs can be completed in a given time. More jobs completed or a faster turnaround time for this contractor means more work that can be invoiced out or even a greater performance bonus from the client.
This is just one example of Toughbook Technology dramatically increasing the ROI on your IT investment. There are many more efficiency benefits, including carry straps, special RF antennas and world renown battery performance. See the Toughbook Technology section for more information.
