11. As an inventory management devices

Before these, an advance warehouse used a mobile computer to speed up the inventory process. These systems are state of the art and effective in carrying out the work they are meant to, but these systems are also expensive to implement.

Accordingly to a document available online, these systems can roughly cost about $3000 USD per mobile computer, and the cost will increase according to the complexity of the system. We also look at a simpler system, to start off you need about $1500 with software and a single system. Of cause, these are heavy industrial usage, thus the high price range. But to a large shale company, to improve productivity and efficiency, that’s a really small cost to pay.


But what if your operation is smaller and does not require the heavy setup as so? You just want a simpler setup and accurate recording but do not think the cost is justifiable yet. The phablet size and mobility alongside with some nifty apps can be an extremely affordable solution.

To accomplish these 2 tasks, the batteries of the device deplete faster than usual. To counter that, you charge the device while driving, which tends to make the device very hot and thus, putting it into heat loop.

By having a dedicated navigation device, you can spear your smart phone from all these issues. Make navigation and communication easier and more effective, and also avoid having those moments of navigation interruption when there’s call coming in.
