Maxatec has signed an agreement with Group Sense Mobile-Tech (GSML), Hong Kong, to distribute its range of mobile computing devices in the UK.
Group Sense Group, ISO-9001 and ISO-14000 certified company, was founded in 1988. In 1996, the Group reportedly launched the first PDA device operating on a Chinese language platform. Since 2000, the Group has been manufacturing the Xplore series of PDAs, featuring magnesium cases, bilingual user interface and 'open-platform' operating system to enable companies to develop customised applications.
As well as the Xplore series, the GSML range comprises the world's first bi lingual data-centric GSM PDA as well as an award-winning all-in-one Palm OS based smartphone. Francis Li, Marketing Director of Group Sense Mobile-Tech Ltd said: "We aimed at creating value through design and manufacture of innovative and customised unique products and services to our partners. The DT series PDA devices were designed as unique features, high quality and stable mobile computing devices for various industries such as retail, logistic, mobile POS etc after a thorough study of market requirements for years. Besides DT350 and DT351, GSML will continue focusing to design and introduce more mobile computing devices to the industries."
Maxatec will concentrate on distributing the Xplore series of products from GSML and specifically the DT-350 and DT-351 PDA devices. These PDAs are a low-cost wireless mobile solution. The products boast enhanced Wi-Fi stability and include features such as single SSID enforcement and 'Wi-Fi Always On' connection.
The Xplore products have a built-in system back-up feature, which enables enterprises to clone and install PDA images for mass deployment in a cost effective and less time consuming manner. There are two modes of operation, Administration and User modes. The PDA device is targeted specifically at industry and as such, entertainment features such as music, video and games have been removed. In addition, the vibration alert, configurable LED signalling and configurable short-cut key allow enterprises to develop unique applications to meet specific business needs.
