Agriculture and farming

The durability and long battery life offered by many of our rugged devices mean workers in industries such as farming can work through the day while retaining power. They are safe in the knowledge that their device isn’t going to break, even in inclement weather. A purpose build safety loop on the Nokia 800 Tough is useful for customers who are on the move and don’t want to risk their phone falling out of their pocket.

Construction or specialist trade

Construction workers/tradesmen no longer need to take a chance with a fragile smartphone whilst on the job. Rugged devices are designed to be impervious to the rough conditions of building sites and other outdoor environments, meaning breakage is less of a concern for workers. Specialist features, such as the thermal imaging camera on the Cat S61, demonstrate a real commitment to meeting the more specific requirements of certain customers.

Transport and logistics

The rugged devices ranged by DWS are built to survive dust, dirt, vibrations, accidental drops and moisture – making them ideal for the transport and logistics sector. With long-lasting battery power on most devices, customers can work comfortably without worrying about their devices running out of battery. The Android software used on most rugged devices also contains access to Google Maps – useful for those who drive long distances.
