Designed for extensive mobile
use, Panasonic’s Toughbook portfolio offers automotive service workers and
management a unique and rugged way to get the job done. Ultra-mobile Toughbooks
ensure maximum uptime by keeping service personnel in the field constantly
connected for easier access to information with the ability to service
automobiles in even the most hostile weather and field conditions. Built to go
wherever crews need to go — whether in a tow truck to the scene of an accident,
showroom floor of a dealership or under the hood of a car in the service bay —
the Toughbook gives mobile workers the integrated features, portability and
options required to make real-time decisions.
The ultra-mobile rugged strategy for any point on the service floor
From the chassis in the
service bay to the back-office parts department, the lightweight, portable
Toughbook proves to be an unmatched rugged mobility strategy which can be
carried to any point on the floor. Supported by a durable base strap, the
handheld devices enable automotive field workers to work more efficiently
without the hassle of going back-and-forth between safe and danger zones. As a
global leader in lithium ion batteries, Panasonic’s Toughbooks are inevitably
equipped with the highest-performance enterprise-grade li-ion batteries for
8-hour, full-shift operations, without downtime or delays due to recharging
Optimising turnaround times in
real-time, the customisable Toughbook is built for any automotive application. The Toughbook can be customised
to match any automotive application, whether it’s vehicle diagnostics and
service, fleet management, auto dealership, or customer sales. Replacing
immobile mounted display panels found in sales and service showrooms, the same
tablet can be docked onto a mount with an attachable keyboard for operations in
notebook mode, as well as be utilized as a mobile, electronic check-list for
data entry. It can be configured with an in-built mobile printer to generate
on-the-spot invoices, automating manual work and paper office, and reducing
duplicity and error rates. Compatible with vehicle diagnostic software, the
Toughbook acts as an interface that connects the diagnostic system to the vehicle,
which enables real-time updates and control of vehicle movements.
Putting the tough in Toughbook, ready to weather the storm
In the face of an emergency
roadside assistance call or heavy maintenance service bays, Panasonic’s
fully-rugged, magnesium alloy-reinforced Toughbooks are engineered to withstand
drops, shocks, vibration, dust, water, and high- and low- temperatures. Enabled
with 4G/LTE broadband connectivity, the integrated wireless antennas offer
reliable mobile operation for rapid information delivery, through the
reinforced walls of a service bay to claims vehicles and tow trucks
on-the-road. Information can be directly uploaded from the tablet to the server
via data connectivity and wirelessly communicated between the road and bay. The
daylight-readable, water- and dust-resistant, sealed LCD screens deliver
optimum visibility amongst the grime of a busy service shop, the side of a
rush-hour freeway, or a dealership lot on a rainy day.
