    Healthcare risks are frightening. A baby is misidentified at birth, or when being discharged from the hospital to go home. A patient is given the wrong medication, and has an allergic reaction. A message doesn’t get from the medical staff to a doctor in sufficient time to deal with an emergency. These are only three of the risks that can be reduced in—or even eliminated from— today’s healthcare settings, simply by using the right barcode scanner. But how do you choose the right scanner for your customer? Looking at how they’ll be employed is a good place to start.

    When you consider all of its attributes, it’s no surprise the tablet is increasingly finding itself the star of modern workplace solutions. First of all, you just can’t beat the price. The simple tablet easily takes the place of expensive and cumbersome electronic hardware such as CPUs, laptops, scanners, and cameras (just to name a few); plus, updating software is as easy as downloading an app. And who could forget the tablet’s environmentally-friendly attributes—such as turning media like paper and ink into extraneous supplies? But perhaps it’s the fact that it can go wherever the user goes, instantly transporting information with the tap of a finger that makes the tablet the ultimate champion in workplace solutions.

    Warehouse environments—or any rugged environment, for that matter—present specific business challenges that must be addressed. Warehouses, for example, can be inefficient, especially when there are major jumps in volume that occur before systems and infrastructure can be updated. And higher customer demand can take its toll on warehouse employees, as they try to keep up while using outdated processes and technologies. These issues can cause errors in processing orders, increased labor costs, and inferior efficiency—all of which can lead to reduced customer satisfaction. When customers aren’t happy, they often seek new partners they believe will provide better quality service.

    We’ve all heard about and read about the arguments for rugged tablets versus consumer tablets. Shoot, most have us have even made these arguments to peers and end users alike.
