Rugged Tablet Computers and Printing Solutions from MobileDemand and Seiko


MobileDemand and Seiko Instruments recently joined forces to provide optimized rugged tablet and mobile printing solutions for a variety of vertical markets.

MobileDemand is a leading provider of rugged tablet PCs. The company’s xTablet T7000, T8700 and C1200 rugged tablet PC systems are designed specifically for use in harsh environments. These rugged tablet models have been certified for both the Seiko Instruments 2-inch DPU-S245 mobile receipt printer and the 4-inch DPU-S445 mobile receipt and label printer.

The two companies serve many of the same markets. Among the targeted users are independent software vendors and resellers in transportation, manufacturing and distribution, public safety agencies, hospitality and agriculture fields.

“There is a lot of synergy between MobileDemand and Seiko Instruments,” says MobileDemand Channel Sales and Business Development Manager, Brian Beans. “Both product lines are built for use in environments where downtime is not an option. For example, our xTablets are built military rugged to withstand the rigors of real-world field applications. Also, we share the goal of

providing innovative tools used by mobile workers in the field to improve operating efficiency and productivity.”

Notes Adam Ortlieb, Associate Director of Marketing for Seiko Instruments, “The partnership makes sense because end users gain access to a proven solution designed to accelerate transaction times, increase efficiencies and expand revenue opportunities.”

Ortlieb adds, “This bundled solution combines our high-performance mobile printers with MobileDemand’s innovative, highly durable full screen xTablets powered by Intel and running Windows 7. As more companies switch from stationary forklift mounted devices, laptops and quarter screen VGA handheld devices to full-screen, full Windows OS tablets, the need for printing labels and receipts wherever work is done becomes more critical. Seiko Instruments’ high-speed mobile printers are light, easy to use and durable. Paired with the MobileDemand xTablets, field workers can improve operations and customer service.”
