StayLinked Europe: Zebra Technologies Events in Paris and Madrid

This past week, StayLinked traveled the globe to promote the latest innovations in modernized Terminal Emulation. Beginning in Paris and Madrid, the StayLinked European team began a tour with Zebra Technologies that will stretch into the coming weeks and months. StayLinked has partnered with Zebra to show how innovative devices such as the Zebra TC8000 and the Zebra WT6000 can increase productivity when using the StayLinked SmartTE client.

PROMAT 2017: StayLinked Smart Keyboard in Action

From April 3-6, 2017, StayLinked attended PROMAT in Chicago with the Strategic Mobility Group (SMG3). We will be showcasing the latest SmartTE client which includes our Smart Keyboard, StayLinked's innovative approach to data input on smaller touchscreen devices. 

Strategic Mobility Group (SMG3) are enterprise mobility and productivity experts who many Fortune 500 companies turn to for custom solutions. SMG3 consults, plans, integrates, deploys, trains, tracks, and supports the entire life cycle of enterprise mobility projects, and StayLinked was thrilled to partner with SMG3.

Advantech-DLoG 2017 IoT World Partner Conference, Taipei, Taiwan

Following the COLLABORATE17 OracleApplication Users Group forum in Las Vegas, StayLinked was in Taipei, Taiwan, to explain changes and innovations in Terminal Emulation at the Advantech IoT World Partner Conference. StayLinked Europe General Manager Padraig Regan explained the StayLinked approach to migration to new devices and how to manage change and increase productivity using StayLinked iQ, the web-based business analytics tool designed specifically with Terminal Emulation in mind.

Transparent Keyboards: An Innovative Data Input Solution

StayLinked SmartTE with the Smart Keyboard ensures you can apply touchscreen capabilities to your warehouse applications right out of the box. You may have seen some approaches to Terminal Emulation that claim to modernize the backend application on your device with ease. But if you talk to anyone who has actually tried these software approaches, you’ll often hear the same refrain: It doesn’t work. At StayLinked, the folks we’ve talked to who are actively looking for an alternative are amazed at not only how well SmartTE works, but how easy it is to use. And with Smart Keyboard, StayLinked is once again leading the way to true out-of-the-box TE modernization.

Modernized Terminal Emulation Right Out-of-the-Box with SmartTE

With StayLinked SmartTE, you can apply touchscreen capabilities to your warehouse applications right out of the box. With a combination of hardware types from different manufacturers you know how hard it can be to choose a software solution that will work seamlessly across your devices.

You may have seen some of the vendor-specific solutions that claim to modernize your backend application on your device with ease. But if you talk to anyone who has actually tried these software approaches, you’ll often hear the same refrain: It doesn’t work! At StayLinked, the folks we’ve talked to who are actively looking for an alternative are amazed at not only how well SmartTE works, but how easy it is to use.

Our Fair Licensing Approach

If you're running Terminal Emulation using one of our competitors' approaches, odds are you're paying for licenses that are not in use. It's that simple. Unfortunately, with device-side licensing, the devices that aren't being used (devices sitting in cradles, devices that aren't working, device in lockers and drawers, and devices that are being repaired) are all unnecessarily using licenses you've paid for. This can be an added and invisible expense that many customers may not be aware of.

With StayLinked, license are only required by devices in use. Because of StayLinked's unique centralized architecture, licensing is handled only when devices connect through the central server. This ensures you pay for the licenses you use, and not your entire inventory of mobile devices.

And with StayLinked iQ you can manage your permanent and temporary licenses in an easy-to-use interface that gives you visibility into usage patterns, so you can see what's going on. From there, optimization is a snap. Other systems simply can't do that.

Superior Single-Server Architecture

StayLinked's fully-integrated architecture uses a single server to handle your business processes: TE application clients, session persistence, modernized screen design, fair licensing, and business intelligence. 

Everything you need for TE in your warehouse can be done with one StayLinked server. That means that installation is easy (less than 10 minutes) and maintenance is minimal. With StayLinked, upkeep is easy and inexpensive, and because it's tightly-integrated, administration is simple.

Other approaches, however, require multiple servers to accomplish a lot less than what the StayLinked solution offers. This means more headaches during the installation process and ongoing support for troubleshooting multiple servers that may not even be in the same location.
