Why You Should Use Enterprise Computers Instead of Consumer Computers.

Do you need an enterprise computer? What is an enterprise computer anyway?  

An enterprise computer is specially built for your business or organization.  It contains everything you need to run your business. Enterprise software is included to satisfy the needs of an organization rather than individual users. Examples would include businesses, schools, interest-based user groups, clubs, charities, or governments.

Enterprise-grade computers have long life-cycles and come with a rich feature set. From the office to outside scenarios like warehouses, construction sites and during travel, enterprise computers, laptops, and tablets provide the durability, resilience, and reliability you and your staff need.

Unlike off-the-shelf computers sold by commercial retailers, enterprise computers provide greater uptime, offer better warranties, and come with the support your staff needs to stay productive and effective. Over the course, three to five years, the cost of purchasing, maintaining and managing a disposable, consumer grade computer far outweighs that of a rugged computer.

An All-In-One Solution

If your business is like most, you want to:

  • Make and save money.
    • Grow and expand your operations
    • Grow and expand human/inter-enterprise associations
    • Share information throughout your enterprise
    • Leverage your existing infrastructure
  • Manage change and risk.
    • Respond to customers

Enterprise computing will help you do this:

  • It’s a departure from using single software solutions such as inventory or accounting software.
  • It uses big-business software solutions to handle complex and common problems such as resource management and streamlining processes.
  • It involves the development, deployment, and maintenance of the information systems required for survival and success in today’s business climate.

Enterprise computers and tablets operate on both Windows or Android operating systems.  They contain software to help you deal with all of your day-to-day concerns,

and business-oriented IT that’s critical to your operations. Plus, they encompass all the various types of enterprise software you may need, including database management, relationship management and more.

How Enterprise Computing Works

Enterprise computing involves the combination of computer hardware and software that a business uses to organize and run its operations. For example, an integrated enterprise system will generally handle more than one operation to facilitate business and management reporting needs.

Enterprise computers are often sold as an entire platform that can be applied broadly across an organization and then customized by your staff in each area. This means the analytics, reporting, database management, and other applications are standard across the system—while the application packages and data accessed in specific areas are different.

When selecting a tablet or computer for your business, it’s important to consider how the device will be used on a daily basis as well as the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for the life of the devices, not just the upfront purchase price. Enterprise-grade devices can handle the demands of a rugged shop-floor or route environments without needing to be repaired or serviced.

Enterprise Computers are often used in:

Healthcare. Non-critical care facilities including hospitals, long-term care providers, and other types of medical clinics require computers that are reliable, durable, and resilient, with a feature set not found in consumer-grade computers. While non-critical care facilities do not always require medical grade computers, they do require computers that are both dependable and long-lasting.

Manufacturing.  Computer-integrated manufacturing is an approach that uses enterprise computers to control an entire production process. They allow for individual processes to exchange information with each other and initiate actions. Although manufacturing can be faster and less error-prone by the integration of computers, the main advantage is the ability to create automated manufacturing processes.

Construction.  Enterprise-grade tablets include an array of integrated options, that can go from the boardroom to the project site.  This allows for ease of use and to enhanced communications between supers and their project managers.

Transportation.  Drivers can communicate when on the road, letting the home office and their enterprise computers know where they’ve been and when. This eliminates paperwork and provides increased productivity.

Warehousing.  Employees stocking the shelves can easily update inventory records via their computers or laptops on a real-time basis.

Utilities.  So, engineers in the field can quickly respond to tickets and provide information to the home office about services rendered.

Military Settings.  In this case, they are designed for specific military applications and must meet the strict military requirements. Sunlight readable military tablets are extremely rugged and are reliable in critical situations.

And more.
