5 Reasons to Love Windows 10 on Rugged Tablets

If you’re looking to use tablets in your operations and require devices that can stand up to harsh environments, rugged tablets are the category to consider. For full desktop applications, ease of maintenance and speedy deployment, rugged tablets running Windows 10 are a great way to stay ahead of the curve. Here’s 5 reasons why AbeTech clients love Windows 10 on their rugged tablets.

1. Full desktop versions of all your applications

Since Windows 10 for rugged tablets is a full-fledged version of Windows, you are able to use full functionality of enterprise grade software and business applications.
Whether it’s Microsoft Office, your Warehouse Management System or other business applications, no extra training is required for your workers. Plus, they won’t be held back by the reduced capability of mobile versions of your most-used apps.

2. Windows 10 tablet mode

Windows 10 was designed with tablets in mind. When you remove your tablet from your charger or dock, it can be set to automatically switch to “tablet mode.” “Tablet mode” is essentially a full screen Start menu with tiles (large icons) for whichever apps you choose to display.
You get quick access to your most used apps and tiles are especially helpful when wearing gloves or operating the tablet from a forklift/vehicle mount, as the large icons are easier to press.

3. Ease of maintenance from your IT support

If you’re already running Windows on your computers, your IT staff will love the idea of using Windows 10 tablets in the warehouse or in the field. User profiles, security settings, networking sharing permissions and more will all be readily available with minimal (if any) extra setup. Alternatively, you can set up your tablets with a generic log-in for all users, and control user profiles within applications.

4. Increased speed of deployment

You’ll be up and running in no time if you choose a rugged Windows tablet. When you are provisioning new devices, the process will be nearly identical to how Windows laptops and desktops in your office are setup. AbeTech can provision your tablets for you before you receive them, or your internal IT teams can handle provisioning. Either way, the process will be just like your current provisioning process.

5. The widest variety of truly rugged, purpose-built tablets

If you want the benefits of a large screen and need a rugged device, Windows 10 tablets are your best bet in today's marketplace. At AbeTech we love Android and frequently tout its strengths as a mobile operating system in industrial data capture environments. It can’t be ignored, however, that in the current state of the industry, you will have more options to choose from when buying rugged tablets if you go with Windows 10.
