The majority of Australian and New Zealand businesses now have staff who work outside the office premises, and many of them use technology to carry out their tasks. In industries including mining, emergency services, field sales, utilities, transportation and retail, notebooks and tablets are standard tools of the trade for many workers. But using them outside an office environment places a lot of demands on those tools – devices can be exposed to temperature extremes, drops, water, dust and dirt, bright light, vibration and altitude. Consumer and commercial grade devices just can’t cut it out on the road.
Statistics show that 8 out of 10 devices are exposed to stresses, and whilst protective cases do a limited job they are not nearly enough – over 70% of consumer devices that fail in the field do so whilst in a protective cover.
