JLT Software Extensions Boost Productivity with Rugged Mobile PCs

Company rolls out new products complementary to its line of rugged computers

Växjö, Sweden, 16 September 2015   * * *   JLT Mobile Computers, Swedish developer and manufacturer of rugged computers for demanding environments, has announced the addition of two productivity-boosting software products for its full range of rugged mobile computers with touch-screen interfaces.

The JLT Virtual Keyboard becomes a standard feature and will provide operators with a more comprehensive yet familiar user interface, wherever they are. By adding the Virtual Keyboard as a standard feature, operators can access and enter data, within any application, much more efficiently even when far from a desk or office environment.

The JLT Barcode Wedge is an optional extra that provides a robust software solution allowing applications to access the valuable data held within the standard barcode format. By installing the software, a wide range of application-specific programs can seamlessly gather data via any standard barcode scanner. Barcodes are now used across all industries to convey important product information; the Barcode Wedge enables that data to be collected, checked or verified by any operator, without the need for additional processes.

Both products are targeted at increasing logistical productivity within challenging environments, such as warehouse management or transportation. The ease and familiarity with which they operate means they will be instantly accessible to any operator, manager or director, within any organisation.

“Through this effort, our end-users will now be able to make full use of our powerful rugged mobile computers,” said Jeff Gilbert, senior application engineer at JLT Mobile Computers. “The new tools will enable greater productivity and efficiencies across a wide range of industries.”
