Streamline operations with a forklift computer

Forklift operators play a significant role in workflow productivity for warehouses, distribution centers and logistics operations, and equipping their machinery with computers can help make their work more efficient, safe and accurate. However, any forklift computer or vehicle mount terminal must be built to withstand the vibration and shock, the wet and dusty environments and the temperature extremes that are often present in industrial environments.

Comark provides rugged forklift computer products that can help to streamline workflows by providing operators with data and connectivity while protecting forklift mounted computers from the harsh environments in which they operate. Designed with forklift driver input, Comark vehicle mount PC products are affordable to purchase, simple to customize and easy to use, even with a work glove.

What to look for in a forklift computer

There are a number of essential criteria to look for when choosing a forklift computer.

  • Durability. A forklift vehicle computer mount must deliver superior performance even in harsh conditions – from the extremes of cold storage to the triple digit temperatures of hot summer days, as well as exposure to water and dust, and the shock and vibration that are unavoidable in forklift operations.
  • Data capture. Operators should be able to interact with their forklift computer via voice, touchscreen, on-screen keyboard and external keyboard when needed.
  • Power. A superior forklift computer must provide power options that enable continuous use through long shifts.
  • Networking. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3G and GPS are all essential communication protocols for keeping forklift operators connected.
  • Screen size. A choice of screens is helpful for matching the capabilities of the technology with the specific needs of operators.
