5 Exciting New Features of StayLinked SmartTE

Posted by Staff Writer on Aug 10, 2016 11:00:00 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.

IoT and Smart Forklifts as Change Agents in Warehousing

Posted by Staff Writer on Nov 19, 2015 3:51:41 PM

Can the workhorse forklift become an agent of change? YES!

When envisioning warehouses, many picture the old-fashioned manual model of operation. In this model, a worker that picks orders uses a cart, forklift and other standard methods of moving inventory. Fulfilling orders with forklifts or carts is the job of workers who go to picking locations where they put the inventory together and drive or move it manually to the packing station or shipping dock.

Enter the Internet of Things (IoT)...

Many consider the IoT the “fourth industrial revolution.” IoT includes a vast network of physical objects or "things" embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity, which enables these objects to collect and exchange data.  The IoT market is large and growing and some predictions claim that the number of devices will reach 20 billion "things" by 2020.

The Amazon Effect - Human Factors in Warehouse Operations

Posted by Staff Writer on Nov 12, 2015 10:57:28 AM

Warehouse challenges impact the workers on the floor, the delivery of complete orders and, ultimately, customer satisfaction. Though challenges are part of doing business in a highly competitive environment, they can set up unrealistic demands that negatively affect the human component of the supply chain. Recent negative press regarding Amazon warehouse operations is providing a forum to discuss the unsustainable practices thrust upon companies to maximize profits. An overview of major challenges as it applies to the warehouse and possible implications is necessary to motivate change in lagging organizations.
