In June, Casio announced a partnership with Wavelink to pre-load the Avalanche, Terminal Emulation (TE), and Industrial Browser products on the DT-X8 rugged hand-held terminal.
Available only to resellers, Casio and Wavelink are offering free Wavelink device management software licenses when the DT-X8 hand-terminal is purchased. This promotion illustrates the powerful combination of an ultra-rugged device operating with the latest device management software from Wavelink. This is ideal for VARs who already use Wavelink device management software, but not on a Casio device. Or for customers that have never tried either product. Terms & Conditions apply to this promotion, which is available through one of Casio's Distributors, Midwich, Syntech or Varlink.
Guy Boxall, Senior Product Marketing Manager at Casio explains "This partnership further supports Casio's growth within the mobility sector. Having Wavelink's mobility software preloaded on the ultra-rugged DT-X8 provides faster and very efficient product integration for our customers. This promotion gives VARs the opportunity to try Wavelink Device Management Software on the DT-X8".
The ultra-rugged DT-X8 hand-held terminal was introduced by Casio in 2011, and is proving to be very successful. It is particularly ideal for use in very tough applications where the rugged design is paramount; having an IP67 rating (total water submersion), drop tested to 3 metres and a battery life of up to 25 hours is a key benefit to the user.
Every Casio DT-X8 purchased under this promotion, will include the following Wavelink software:
- Wavelink Avalanche enables remote hands-free setup and management of hand-held devices from the initial stages of provisioning, all phases of mobile computer use, returning devices into the population from service, repair or alternative use, and into retirement.
- Wavelink Terminal Emulation (TE) is the market leader with over 4 million clients installed. TE is a complete environment, available to every device running Wavelink TE at no additional cost. The environment includes Session Persistence, Screen Reformatter, and high level of customization with settings and configuration options, and automation of data entry using scripting tools.
- Wavelink Industrial Browser allows customers to access traditional host-based apps and web-based apps with one software deliverable. The Industrial Browser offers features to integrate scanning, security, speech and security for workers using web-based apps.
