Choosing the right option for EMS agencies
How do you determine when you need something more durable than an iPad? Consider TCO (total cost of ownership), downtime and replacement costs. If the iPad breaks, how many times can your agency buy a new one?
The biggest factor that leads to downtime in using a consumer-grade device in a challenging environment is that rugged devices are designed to withstand extreme use and tough habitats and situations. EMS users are among the hardest on devices than any other public safety agency.
You need to connect with monitors, defibrillators, and other peripherals, have screen readability outdoors, customize the device to fit your specific needs, and have compatibility with operating systems. These are just a few of the important points to consider when you’re selecting a device.
The Panasonic Toughpad G1 and Toughbook 20 hits all of these marks, and more. Panasonic rugged devices include a full Windows OS, Intel processing power, long-life batteries, drivers license readers, and accessories such as WWAN (wireless wide area network), bar code scanners, and more.
