Frontline workers are far more effective when they are connected

Everything you need rolled into one smart, portable device
What if you could converge most (or all) of the applications your teams use every day into one smart, handheld device of your choice…?
Having to regularly switch between devices can seriously impact the ability to work efficiently. Workcloud Communication attaches seamlessly to Android smart devices such as smartphones (rugged or consumer grade), Touch Computers, Mobile Computers or Android-based scanners, as well as iOS smartphones.
By attaching Workcloud Communication onto portable smart devices which colleagues already use for daily tasks and which are integrated with the business’ IT systems, operational efficiency can be boosted significantly across the whole business. It can also yield wider cost-savings by enabling the business to phase out legacy technology including pagers, DECT phones and tanoy systems.
