Tough conditions call for tough mobile devices that will enable those in the field to respond and cope with the task at hand. It is especially important for fire, emergency medical services (EMS) personnel, and those working in any form of law enforcement.
This is why Panasonic developed Toughbooks and Toughpads for fire and EMS in the first place. Toughbooks go back nearly a decade, while Toughpads are a relatively new invention launched only four years ago. But both play an invaluable role for fire and EMS workers in the field.
Toughbooks and Toughpads are Durable and Tough
Designed to meet the challenging needs of customers who operate in particularly rough environments, these devices provide them with durable and functional laptops, tablets and notebooks that just keep going.
Panasonic, as a manufacturer, has achieved a lot and has captured its lion share of the tough, rough mobile device market. But the company certainly hasn’t rested on its laurels, and both Toughbooks and Toughpads for fire and EMS have continued to develop and improve year after year.
Even though Toughbooks were launched 18 years before Toughpads, both types of mobile device were developed for purpose – primarily for fire, EMS and law enforcement – with innovative technology and design at the forefront. Essentially what they do is enable workers that need reliable, hard-working rugged devices to do their jobs without stressing that they might drop the device, spill on it, or knock it about a bit. This isn’t possible with most laptops and tablets that would likely fail if dropped, used in a very dusty environment, or showered with water. On the other hand, fully rugged Toughpads and Toughbooks can withstand really harsh conditions, including dust and dirt and extreme temperature fluctuations.
The traditional environment for computing is clean and tidy. But when the going gets rough, users need to be tough!
The durability offered by Panasonic mobile devices take adaptability and accessibility to a whole new level, which is why Toughbooks and Toughpads for fire and EMS are fast becoming the norm.
Superior Manufacture of Toughbooks and Toughpads for Fire and EMS
Panasonic has all its rugged Toughpads and Toughbooks manufactured in Japan, in Kobe. All the company’s products are designed by the company and then manufactured and tested at the Kobe plant. The testing is incredibly rigorous, and around 1,000 Toughbook products are reportedly damaged “to the point of destruction” every year just to ensure that future products will be improved.
By comparison, many other mobile computer manufacturers simply order their parts from other manufacturers.
But it isn’t just about the hardware. Panasonic also has fantastic software solutions that work for those using Toughbooks and Toughpads for fire and EMS, enabling them to collect and organize data, and transfer it a whole lot faster and more efficiently. For example, when there is any type of fire it is essential to determine the cause, both to prevent future fires and, if it is likely arson, find out who did it. This requires very accurate recordkeeping and data analysis, which relies on the software used. Similarly, when EMS workers pick up patients, they need to get as much critical data as possible before they get to the hospital and ER. Toughbooks and Toughpads are light and convenient and make it very easy to get this information.
At the end of the day, it’s a no-brainer that for fire and EMS, Toughbooks and Toughpads are a must.
