Identify the correct handheld terminal for your business needs:
With so many options and specifications available when considering handheld terminals and mobile computers for your enterprise, it is helpful to know some of the key features. Selecting your handheld terminals in this way will ultimately safeguard your purchases whilst giving you the assurance that the device is well-suited to your working environment.
- Keyboard size can be a key factor when considering the ease-of-use for the operator and ultimately their productivity. Most handhelds are available with a number of keyboard options, such numeric, alphanumeric or QWERTY, depending on your preference. In addition to this, 'key-size' can be something to take into account, particularly when deploying within harsh environments where gloves or protective equipment is worn.
- Depending on where the terminal will be deployed, there are various screen and display options to consider. Handheld terminals can be shipped with colour and sunlight-readable displays as well as with numerous touchscreen options.
- The weight and ultimately the size of the unit are important to scrutinise in relation to the nature of the deployment. Should an order picker be required to use the handheld terminal for long durations of time without rest, then a lighter unit would be the better choice in terms of productivity and importantly, employee adoption. Similarly, there is often the option to add a ‘gun-grip’ extension to your handheld which can make high-intensity use, such as during inventory management or stock replenishment, more comfortable for the user.
- The maximum battery life can vary for each handheld device, usually ranging from 10 hours upwards. Where usage is over significantly long periods of time, a unit with superior battery life is essential, or extra battery units may be required.
