We continue traveling throughout Europe to promote the latest software advancements in Modernized Terminal Emulation. This upcoming week, Padraig Regan (StayLinked GM, EMEA) and Zebra Technologies will be in Prague demonstrating how to successfully accelerate migration to Android using StayLinked SmartTE. Attendees will learn how StayLinked SmartTE removes barriers to adoption of full touchscreen Android devices. They'll also see how reliable automatic terminal emulation modernization, innovative data input, and TE analytics combine to pull customers through the OS migration process to the next generation of Zebra mobile devices. Attendees will leave this session with the ability to run their own live SmartTE demos.

StayLinked Software + Zebra Devices

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 innovative alternative are amazed at not only how well SmartTE works, but how easy it is to use.

FREE 30-DAY TRIALSuperior 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.

Fair Licensing with StayLinked

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 withStayLinked 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.
