Rugged Food Distribution Solution with Mobile Devices - Stratix

Rugged Food Distribution Solution Offers High Performance and Lower Costs

Solution Brief

Fast Pace Required in a Tough Environment

Food service distribution drivers keep going regardless of the weather. In rain, heat, or snow, they average 400-700 scans on a route. Not only can it be a harsh environment, but they often face low light conditions and damaged barcodes. Because drivers frequently wear gloves, their device screens and touch sensitivity need to be carefully considered. Devices have to be rugged, reliable, and deliver great experiences with no mis-scans.

Together with Samsung and Scandit, Stratix offers a rugged device solution that delivers enterprise-grade performance, TCO reductions, and our industry-leading support. Drivers are more efficient because they can use one device for additional tasks like communications, time clock management, and information finding.
