Today's technology is changing rapidly. The demand is high and the market is filled with new innovations.

Unitech, producer of rugged mobile computing products, has introduced the PA600 Phone Edition for achieving a high level of productivity and service levels and all with minimum response time by supporting voice and data capabilities.
GEZE UK has invested in the latest mobile technology and their Mobile Service Solution (MSS) has been developed by a team of IT consultants and their parent company GEZE GmbH to provide a software system that fully interfaces with their SAP operating system. It is tailored to their needs and those of their customers. The PA600 Phone Edition of Unitech is implemented into this Mobile Service Solution to optimize the accuracy and efficiency of the field workers.
Jobs planned for each day are sent via GPRS to handheld PDA devices. With the PA600 Phone Edition, engineers can view the details of each job, enter working hours on and off site and the details of any repair made. A customer's signature is captured on the screen of the Unitech PA600PE device and all data is transmitted back to the office to be processed. Engineers benefit from the shape of the PDA which is extremely easy to handle and which ensures a perfect fit in their hands. In addition, the PA600PE is protected against unexpected weather, because of its strong IP65, and water and dirt resistant design. Suitable for the most rugged environments minimizing downtime and repair costs.
