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.

One of the biggest productivity killers in the warehouse occurs when wireless barcode scanners lose their connections to the mission-critical applications they rely on to do their jobs.  The result is that the worker cannot do their job until the dropped session problem is resolved. Other serious ramifications of dropped sessions are lost data, poor employee morale, and the need for additional mobile device inventory and support staff. This blog post will discuss the causes costs of dropped sessions.

Increase Warehouse Productivity with Terminal Emulation Screen Reformatting

Posted by Jeremy Black on Nov 13, 2014 4:09:07 PM

Many companies find that their ability to improve performance is limited by the user interface design of their enterprise applications in the warehouse.  Often these applications are not necessarily designed for mobile devices and may present redundant and/or unnecessary screens and content.  A result of these complicated user interface elements is end user confusion and delays in the business process flow. Though application upgrades are sometimes possible, these upgrades often result in additional costs and application performance degradation.  An alternative solution for simplifying and streamlining the mobile user experience is to intercept application screens and optimize them for mobile devices.
