Samsung Electronics Singapore announced that the Galaxy Tab Active3 is now available and that the Galaxy XCover Pro will be available in March. Knox Capture, a new enterprise-grade scanning solution will also be supported by both devices by March. As part of Samsung for Business’ portfolio, the new business rugged devices feature sleek, durable and compact designs that enable frontline workers to be more secure, collaborative and productive in the field.
Today’s businesses are looking for multi-functional devices that are easy to use. Samsung’s research1 found that 68% of those surveyed agree that devices supporting point-of-sale (mPOS), push to talk (PTT) and mobile scanning functions need to be performing more than one dedicated role. In addition, enterprise customers with frontline employees in construction, healthcare and last-mile delivery sectors require durable, portable and easy-to-use rugged devices to complete their tasks confidently.
“When designing the Galaxy Tab Active3 and Galaxy XCover Pro, we have incorporated new features based on feedback from our customers on functions that would benefit their everyday operations,” said Sarah Chua, Vice President of IT and Mobile, Samsung Electronics Singapore. “The Galaxy Tab Active3 is a multi-functional tablet that not only supports the latest applications for field work, but also no battery mode2 for those who require devices at a fixed kiosk or mounted on vehicles. Meanwhile, the Galaxy XCover Pro can seamlessly transform into a mobile device scanner or a walkie-talkie – perfect for field workers in logistics and supply chain sectors. With a strong line-up of rugged devices, we are paving the way for continuous innovation to create products that allow customers to do business with a peace of mind, while keeping their frontline workers productive and safe.”
Samsung’s commitment in developing ruggedised devices has also been recognised in the industry, where the company was named as a Leader in the IDC MarketScape for Worldwide Rugged Mobile Devices3 which states that Samsung’s Rugged offerings “bridge the gap between industrial ultra-rugged devices and consumer-grade devices, making them durable enough to withstand a number of challenging environments while still providing a familiar and approachable end-user experience.”
