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.

Modernized Hardware

One of the more compelling reasons for modernizing your warehouse applications is the ability to use these modern touch screen devices from any manufacturer with a single software solution that can work across whichever device you choose. Maybe you’ve seen, or even purchased devices such as Datalogic’s DL-Axist, Zebra’s TC8000, Honeywell’s CT50, or CipherLab’s RS30. If so, you are becoming familiar with how well the warehouse workforce can now leverage the touch-enabled user interfaces they’re accustomed to using in their everyday lives. 

SmartTE Modernization Works Right Out of the Box!

With StayLinked SmartTE, you can apply the touch screen capabilities to your warehouse applications right out of the box. Those of you who do have a combination of hardware types from different manufacturers know how hard it can be to choose a software solution that can work seamlessly across these 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. 

StayLinked Works on Any Operating System!

At StayLinked, we’ve worked hard to make sure that your legacy terminal emulation apps can take advantage of what these new devices have to offer, even without a hardware keyboard. That means that no matter what new hardware you decide to use, StayLinked SmartTE just works. But just as importantly, StayLinked works on every major operating system: Android, iOS, and Windows 10/CE6 (Q4/2016) and even Java. So when you decide which hardware and which OS to use in your warehouse, StayLinked is committed to making sure that your apps not only work better, but that you can focus on making the tough decisions of the warehouse without having to worry about which software you’ll use to run whatever hardware combination you decide to use. Because in the supply chain, as we all know, each warehouse is different.
