Why businesses need rugged devices that can keep up with their workforce

Posted in Articles on 25/9/2020

Samsung rugged devices at PB Tech

Businesses operating in ever-changing environments need devices that can keep up with the use cases they encounter. Rural economies, agriculture, construction, engineering, and architecture are examples of industries where employees need to be mobile as they spend more time on a site than in an office.

Workers in these industries need devices that are able to handle the demands of tougher environments, are designed to be used outdoors, and are reliable because their livelihoods depend on these devices.

Samsung is a brand trusted by Kiwi businesses. Their rugged device range features reliable, proven products with all the required functionality without the bells and whistles. They typically have a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) and are ideal for fast-moving industries such as fieldwork, security, and emergency services where the job looks different every day.

Samsung backs up their devices with a 24-month local warranty, even covering water damage for rugged devices (terms and conditions apply).
