MobileDemand, a provider of rugged tablet PCs has formed a partnership with California-based Seiko Instruments USA Inc., a provider of thermal printer technology.
All MobileDemand products — the xTablet T7000, T8700 and C1200 tablet PC systems — have been certified on both the Seiko Instruments 2-inch DPU-S245 receipt printer and the 4-inch DPU-S445 receipt and label printer, MobileDemand Channel Sales and Business Development Manager Brian Beans said in a company press release.
The partnership promises to leverage the companies' collective expertise to provide customers, ISVs and resellers in transportation, field services, manufacturing and warehousing, retail supply chain, food and beverage distribution, military, law enforcement and other public safety agencies, hospitality, and agriculture optimized rugged mobile computing and printing solutions, he said.
"There is a lot of synergy between MobileDemand and Seiko Instruments. Both product lines are built for use in environments where downtime is not an option," Beans said. "Also, providing innovative tools used by mobile workers in the field to improve operating efficiency and productivity is core to both companies."
The partnership with MobileDemand made sense for a variety of reasons, said Adam Ortlieb, associate director, marketing, Seiko Instruments.
"It will leverage both companies' expertise, providing customers with a seamless solution that combines our high-performance mobile printers with MobileDemand's innovative, highly durable xTablets.
