Posted by Staff Writer on Nov 10, 2016 8:15:00 AM

 

WATCH NOW! StayLinked is Modernizing Terminal Emulation

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 can work seamlessly across your devices.

You may have seen some of the vendor-specific solutions of all stripes 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. 

See what StayLinked can do to help modernize your warehouse applications by watching the StayLinked Webinar: Terminal Emulation Modernization That Just Works!

SmartTE: Modernized Terminal Emulation on Any Device!

StayLinked Works with Everyone

In the supply chain, as we all know, each warehouse is different. They differ in the ways they are physically configured, in the ways they are staffed, and also in the ways they use hardware and software solutions. Legacy devices used in scanning and picking are slowly giving way to more powerful devices that utilize touchscreens, and even the legacy devices themselves have seen recent hardware improvements that allow for touchscreen capabilities.

Warehouse Challenges: Keeping Up with Technology

In the coming weeks leading up to our TE Modernization Webinar (Thursday, November 3, 11am PDT), we're going to examine some of the challenges warehouses face and we'll highlight some solutions that meet those challenges head on. Most warehouses we've seen that utilize terminal emulation applications have at some point been faced with issues of aging equipment, obsolete software, and outdated business practices. If not all three at the same time, then certainly one or the other somewhere along the way. If not addressed, these challenges can be transformed into real problems that negatively impact worker productivity and seriously affect your bottom line. At StayLinked, we've worked hard to create innovative solutions that help warehouses overcome these technological issues and thrive in ever-changing conditions.

The FIRST Robotics Competition Team

This past month, StayLinked invited local robotics team members from FRC Team 4322 to participate in a software development challenge at StayLinked Headquarters in Tustin, California. FRC, which stands for FIRST Robotics Competition, is, according to their website, "an intense six-week competition that challenges teams of 20 or more students to raise funds, design a team "brand," hone teamwork skills, and build and program industrial-size robots to play a difficult field game against like-minded competitors. It’s as close to real-world engineering as a student can get."

5 Exciting New Features of StayLinked SmartTE

Posted by Staff Writer on Aug 10, 2016 8:00:00 AM

When we made StayLinked SmartTE available earlier this year, we set out to release the premier graphical terminal emulation modernization solution. Part of that initial release was our commitment to constantly improve the experience for our customers. Fast forwarding just a few short months, we are proud to announce some exciting enhancements to the SmartTE client, and to the Designer Mode of the StayLinked Administrator.

1. Optimized Demo Mode (for Tablets, Wearables and Handhelds)

If you've recently updated your StayLinked Client for Android, you may have noticed some new options in the About Menu ("Run Demonstration Mode"). These different modes (Tablet, Handheld, and Wearable) allow you to connect to the StayLinked Demo Server to see how an application appears when it's optimized for different screen sizes and screen orientations. 

2. Contextual, Smart Keyboards 

Another exciting new feature is the ability for the StayLinked Client to recognize when and where the keyboard is needed within the native application. This feature saves valuable time by eliminating the need to manually access the keyboard. As users navigate through screens from the host app, the StayLinked Client detects when the application input calls for a numeric entry or an alpha entry, and displays the appropriate keyboard. 

3. Rapid Screen Development (Dynamic Templates and Content Generator)

If you haven't yet used the Screen Designer in the StayLinked Administrator, you likely haven't seen just how easy it is to generate dynamic content with the click of a button. Staylinked now allows application designers to quickly take host screens with static elements and convert those same screen items to dynamic elements just by selecting an option from a drop-down menu. You've got 50 screens to convert? No problem with the Screen Designer's Dynamic Content Generator.

4. Custom Enhancement Support for Certified Devices

StayLinked is also proud to announce the certification of the following devices for SmartTE:

These have been rigorously tested to ensure that all of the enhanced features of StayLinked SmartTE are compatible with each device.

Scaling with StayLinked: As Easy as Raspberry Pi

Posted by Staff Writer on Jun 9, 2016 11:14:49 AM

Raspberry Pi and StayLinked

It’s likely that many of you are familiar with Raspberry Pi, the single-board computer from the UK that measures roughly the size of a credit card and sells for less than US $40. Though designed for use primarily in education and meant for distribution in developing countries, the tiny computer has grown in popularity over the past couple of years and has sold in the millions of units worldwide. Here at StayLinked Headquarters in Tustin, California, we thought it might be interesting to see how well the StayLinked Server not only installed on such modest hardware, but how efficiently the software performed, and whether or not it could scale to handle hundreds‒‒or even thousands‒‒of concurrent terminal emulation sessions.
