There has been a great deal of noise circulating around the marketplace concerning the looming end-of-support for Windows CE and Windows Mobile. As a result, customers are anxious about moving to an Android platform because of a lack of support for legacy applications.On the surface, this seems to be a valid assumption, but the truth is, there have been options available to migrate to Android for several years now. Global Android adoption has been nothing short of astounding. Back in 2009, Android was loaded on 1.6% of mobile devices in a landscape that included several other OS platforms such as Symbian, iOS and multiple offerings from Microsoft. In less than 10 years, Android has evolved in a marketplace to become the OS of choice on almost 90% of all mobile devices. With such an uptake rate, the idea that Android adoption is the key roadblock to device adoption seems absurd.

As the leaders of innovative terminal emulation solutions for the supply chain industry, StayLinked once again recorded impressive growth in 2018 with a 44% increase in license revenues and further expansion into the European market.
StayLinked continued to strengthen its presence in EMEA with the hiring of Guido Grefen as Technical Account Manager to take on collaboration with channel partners, device manufacturers, and application providers.

We are excited once again to announce further expansion in our presence in Europe with the hiring of Guido Grefen as Technical Account Manager. Guido is not new to the StayLinked approach. In fact, he was responsible for designing, implementing, and supporting the very first StayLinked installations in Europe while at Rodata, a value-added reseller specializing in AutoID. While at Rodata, Guido maintained strong connections with StayLinked for an extensive period of time, working with StayLinked and Psion Teklogix while they were OEM partners.
Managing Your Terminal Emulation Applications the Right Way
Mobile Device Management (MDM) is a critical part of any enterprise warehouse operation, especially in managing and securing large numbers of mobile devices (StayLinked is a proud SOTI partner). It simplifies the security and management of multi-vendor, multi form-factor and multi-operating devices in a multi-purpose mobility ecosystem. And when it comes to managing Terminal Emulation, spending time on unnecessary hurdles to manage and update software can waste time, human resources, and money. A software management approach that introduces unnecessary steps can compromise productivity and create headaches for your IT department. With StayLinked's integrated server solution, you have complete control. If any change needs to be made, all devices across the enterprise are updated, in real-time without deploying a single file, and without having to rely on additional software. In fact, when evaluating an enterprise-grade Terminal Emulation solution, we highly recommend asking these questions:
StayLinked Corporation, the leader in modern Terminal Emulation solutions, and Bluebird, a leader in warehouse mobile computing, announced today that they are now working together to offer StayLinked software on Bluebird’s series of ruggedized handheld computers, featuring the Bluebird EF400, a pocket-sized touch mobile computer for rugged environments.
StayLinked and Cognex Corporation are proud to announce that we are now working together to offer StayLinked software on the Cognex series of ruggedized handheld computers, featuring the MX-1502 Series vision-enabled mobile terminal, the MX-1000 Series mobile barcode reader for rugged environments.
