Panasonic and StayLinked offer next generation mobile computing solutions to the warehousing, manufacturing, and logistics industries
StayLinked joins Panasonic Toughbook’s Independent Software Vendor programme
BRACKNELL, UK. 14th FEBRUARY 2018 - Panasonic today announced that StayLinked Corporation, the leading Terminal Emulation modernisation software provider, has joined its Independent Software Vendor programme to offer next generation rugged mobile computing solutions to the warehouse, manufacturing, logistics and retail industries.
Panasonic and StayLinked will now be able to offer mobile workers in these sectors the most ergonomically designed and toughest mobile computing devices from the Panasonic Toughbook notebook, tablet and handheld range equipped with modernised, touchscreen-optimised Terminal Emulation applications.
StayLinked’s SmartTE software provides a cost-effective way to take advantage of today's modern touchscreen devices by transforming traditional Terminal Emulation "green screen" application screens into easy-to-use, graphical screens with no changes to the underlying enterprise application. With SmartTE, customers get the best of both worlds with no-risk application modernisation. They continue to benefit from the speed, reliability, and security of Terminal Emulation while increasing productivity and usability with the addition of an intuitive, modern user experience.
In addition, SmartTE means existing investment in host applications and servers is protected with the introduction of more modern mobile devices, and existing apps can be run almost immediately on new operating systems, which removes the need for expensive software development and long implementation cycles, saving money in the long-run.
Sylvaine Smith, European Business Development Manager for Panasonic Computer Product Solutions, said: “StayLinked has transformed the reliability and security of access to critical data for thousands of mobile workers with its Terminal Emulation software and is now helping the same workforce gain the productive benefits of working with touchscreen tablets and handheld devices by converting traditional green screen sessions into next generation graphical displays. As a result, they are the perfect partner to join our growing ISV programme. Panasonic will continue to identify and work closely with software vendors and application providers that combine with our range of leading rugged mobile computing devices to bring technology solutions that help business transform the productivity of their mobile workforces.”
Padraig Regan, General Manager, Europe at StayLinked, added: “Panasonic has a clear European leadership position in the rugged notebook and tablet market and its ambitions for the rugged handheld market make our partnership an exciting one at this time. With SmartTE we aim to help businesses using Terminal Emulation take advantage of today's modern touchscreen devices, like those from Panasonic, with no changes to the underlying enterprise applications. With the vast majority of data collection devices in the warehouse running wireless Terminal Emulation to connect with mission-critical, server-based applications, this partnership will help thousands of mobile workers to increase productivity and make their jobs easier with the addition of an intuitive, modern user experience.”
