Motion Computing, a global provider of mobile technology solutions built for business, launched their In-Vehicle Computing Solution at American Water Works Association Annual Conference & Exposition (ACE 13) in Denver. The Motion Solution includes a range of docks, mounts, integrated features and computing accessories designed to work with Motion Tablet PCs for maximized safety, reliable connectivity, and increased productivity on the road.
“Over the past 12 years, we’ve helped optimize the performance of mobile workers through purpose-built, rugged tablet PCs, tailored accessories and services,” said Peter Poulin, vice president, marketing at Motion. “We developed our In-Vehicle Computing Solutions for the growing number of mobile workers who rely on tablets inside their vehicles. As with all our solutions – the In-Vehicle Solution is designed to be flexible enough to enhance multiple workflows. It is also durable enough to meet both the safety and quality standards demanded by fleet managers at water utilities and other field service organizations.”
Motion’s In-Vehicle Solution provides several safety-enhancing features. Motion docks feature built-in sensors that limit the use of computer displays while the vehicle is in motion. An admin tool allows the fleet manager to configure what applications are accessible by the driver. And, for fleets with a driver-passenger set-up, the optional Swingaway solution provides full computing access for the passenger, even when the vehicle is in motion.
At the heart of Motion’s In-Vehicle Solution is a unique, patented Tilt & Rotate mount designed to save space through dashboard-mounting. The Mount features a modular design that works seamlessly with Motion’s low profile F5t and CL910 Tablet PCs, offering the ultimate flexibility and user comfortwith a wider range of adjustment angles.
In addition to dashboard-mounting, Motion offers traditional floor mounting and retrofitting installation services. Installations can be performed by Motion Preferred Installers, Mobile Mounts and Mobile Installation Technologies. Both companies guarantee full-time, skilled employees will perform installations in a timely manner using high quality equipment.
