See them all at www.havis.com Protect and organize expensive in-vehicle equipment and hardware January's Field Technologies magazine featured a Havis article that focused on the benefits of proper docking and mounting in a total mobility solution. Docking Solutions: In a fully- equipped mobile office, the safety of the driver and any passengers is paramount. In-vehicle equipment like laptops, tab- lets or other peripherals can easily become dangerous projectiles during an accident or sudden stop. However, with a high-quality docking solution, this equipment will remain securely mount- ed and functional through rugged driv- ing conditions and even power spikes. In addition to protecting mobile work- ers and their expensive hardware, dock- ing stations integrate intelligent port replication to provide reliable access to power and peripherals while minimizing the risk of accidental disconnects. Havis manufactures a wide range of these docking stations, as well as cradle-only solutions, which refer to docking stations with no electronics built into them. With a universal tablet or laptop cradle, users can secure most device brands without sacrificing safety or durability. According to the article, fleet man- agers should consider the following to determine an ideal docking station or cradle: "Do you need port replication, such as USB, serial, or Ethernet? Will you need to power peripherals like print- ers, keyboards, bar code scanners, and antennas? Do you need external antenna connectivity or pass-through such as GPS, LAN, or WAN? Will the device be frequently removed from the dock, or will it remain stationary?" Mounting Solutions : To enhance productivity, fleet managers should uti- lize mounting solutions that organize in-vehicle equipment and are ergonomi- cally designed to make that equipment easy to see, reach and operate while cre- ating additional space. These products include center consoles, passenger side mounts, dash monitor mounts, trunk mounts, and motion devices. Havis mounting products, specifically, provide a strong foundation that mini- mizes vibration, which can transmit dam- aging shock to a computer and cause eye strain, typing errors, and undue wear and tear on the laptop's chassis, electronics and hinges. To help fleet managers ensure mobile worker safety and comfort, and proper equipment organization, the article poses the following questions: "Will you require convenient adjustments for computer usage by both the driver and passenger? Will multiple drivers need to easily modify the solution's setup? Do you require access to amenities such as keyboards, printers, arm rests, or cup holders? Do you need to avoid perma- nent modification, such as drilling, of the vehicle to protect its resale value?" Next Steps: With thoughtful plan- ning, fleet managers can select the most appropriate solutions to improve mobile worker safety, productivity and comfort. Manufacturers like Havis offer a variety of products that are compatible with the latest vehicles and devices, so each fleet can benefit from a customized mobile office solution.
