No matter how you say it, productivity gains are the objective of mission-critical mobility deployments all around the globe. From New York to Beijing, and Frankfurt to Seoul, enterprises all over are looking for ways to help workers be more productive. These gains can’t be realized only in pockets of the world economy, but must be accessible everywhere. How can companies accelerate the realization of the benefits of enterprise mobility?

  1. Speak the worker’s language: provide mobility solutions that are easy for workers to understand. This starts with presenting mobility software clients in their local language.
  2. Simplify the task workflow: make data input as easy as possible so that workers can move through tasks more quickly. It can be as simple as putting the input keys users require most immediately in front of them.
  3. Enable multi-tasking: mobile workers are asked to perform many tasks. Give them the ability to have multiple sessions active so they can accomplish multiple tasks simultaneously. Avoid requiring re-connections to host systems, even when they leave the application or turn off their mobile device.
  4. Choose solutions that can cross mobile computing platforms: some workers need rugged mobile computers, while others need the same access to host applications from smartphones or tablets. Mobility clients that span these hardware options and also the mobile operating systems that reside on them are the key.
  5. Choose the one mobility client that can deliver all the above, along with decades of proven dependability – Wavelink TE.

Today, with the release of our Terminal Emulation 2.0 clients for Android and iOS, your business can realize the gains so many other companies have already seen. Version 2.0 of the Android and iOS clients add localization in 10 languages – including Japanese, Chinese Simplified and Traditional), Korean and Thai so that your global business can run on your workers’ local languages. These new Android and iOS clients also make it easy to customize keyboards with a WYSIWYG keyboard editor so that you can put the most common keys in the most accessible locations on today’s smartphones and tablets that lack physical keys. What’s more, users can have up to four sessions of Wavelink TE open simultaneously and easily toggle among them, and Wavelink’s ConnectPro can ensure users maintain host application connectivity even when they need to power-off the device.

Wavelink TE, which is used on nearly 70% of all rugged mobile computers already, continues to meet the demands of mission-critical mobility – including the expanded deployments of smartphone and tablet devices in broadening mobile deployments. With all the continuing investment Wavelink is making in Terminal Emulation, consider how productivity can be increased among your workers all around the world.
