When workers log back into their e-mail, GIS software, and CRM after network coverage fails, it can equal up to 30% off lost work time.  Jacksonville Electric eliminated this headache by adding NetMotion Mobility to their infrastructure.

Take-aways for utility customers:

  • NetMotion Mobility delivers reliable and SECURE access to business applications.

  • Persistent network connections means more up-time in the field and less frustration. You can read the NetMotion Utilities brief for more information.

You can ensure maximum up-time in the field with the fully rugged Panasonic E1 handheld tablet that offers data and voice technology alongside a barcode reader! For a full overview of our rugged technology offerings, please visit www.toughonline.com
