The durable, enterprise-ready cases feature first-in-the-market and patented productivity enhancements, enabling scanning barcodes, taking payments, 3D modeling, and mounting options

surface-innovation-bannerCEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA - JULY 23, 2019 - MobileDemand is leading the way in delivering productivity in the enterprise through rugged mobile devices in both built-to-be rugged tablets and innovative rugged cases. The rugged cases enhance the capability of consumer and light enterprise grade tablets, such as Microsoft® Surface and Apple® iPad devices. Announced today, the company has created two robust, rugged cases for the Microsoft Surface Pro and Surface Go with patented features and utility. These breakthrough cases include options to allow users to scan barcodes, take mobile payments with a credit card reader or payment device, build a 3D model of a scene or object, and mount the device to almost anything one can imagine. The Microsoft Surface devices, with the new MobileDemand cases, turn into mobile computing multi-function tool to get more done with the mobile workforce in retail enterprises, as well as logistics, supply chain, industrial, healthcare, field service and field sales applications.

Get more done with the productivity tool – The cases can be configured with a high-performance Honeywell® N6703 barcode scanner option for professional and enterprise-grade scanning features along with superior read range, snappiness, and ergonomic button triggers.

The cases can also be outfitted to take mobile payments with credit card readers with MagTek® or ID TECH® magnetic stripe readers (MSR) with varying security levels, as well as a hinged bracket to hold the Ingenico® iSMP4 payment device. Reading barcodes and taking payments are staple features in mobile Point of Sale (mPOS) retail applications.

Surveyors and inspectors can now use the Microsoft Surface devices to scan 3D models of facilities, machinery, or other objects. The Intel® RealSense Depth Camera D415 can be mounted on the case, giving another highly productive feature available for the Microsoft Surface user to accomplish more.

Easy to Carry and Hold – Both cases offer a comfortable back hand strap, convenient briefcase handle and shoulder strap for reliable mobility. A secure grasp on the device is key to ease of use and preventing users from dropping the device, keeping IT costs down and users satisfied with their tool.

Proven Ruggedness – MobileDemand sets the standard in investment protection and operational uptime with the rugged cases. For a device to pass military standard testing, known as MIL-STD-810G, it must survive 26 drops from four feet. MobileDemand raises the bar to and industry leading six feet as a testament to the high quality and standards proven to protect your assets. The cases are impact-resistant with rubber bumpers and protected ports, preventing unwanted water and dust from entering the device. They are lightweight for mobile applications yet durable for tough, industrial jobs.

Simple Mounting to Almost Anything – The Surface cases can be mounted where the work gets done. They include a plate for an easy to use and implement, patented Snap Mount system. The optional mounting rail is ultra-slim and sturdy, adding functionality in the field to mount the device to walls, beams, bars, side of machinery, counters, desks, lecterns, cabs of vehicle, and even securely mount in forklifts. The mount is engineered for quick insertion and release of the Surface tablet. An innovative magnet mount system is available to magnetically attached to metal walls and sides of machinery or vehicles without having to drill holes. Additionally, a new magnetic Surflink connector carriage captures the Surflink connector and allows strong magnets to hold it in place on the cases. Users are better able to handle the connector.

“The two new MobileDemand cases for Microsoft Surface showcase the innovation to enable world-class productivity with tablet devices for the frontline workforce,” said Matt Miller, President, MobileDemand. “The market has clear needs for productivity solutions in a variety of applications and industries, and MobileDemand is delivering to help our customers get more done.”

The rugged Surface Pro case and rugged Surface Go case with several of the productivity options are available today while a couple options will be available in the coming months. MobileDemand also offers the Surface devices as bundles; delivering the rugged and productive Surface, freeing the users from having to purchase and apply the case, screen protector, and productivity enhancements themselves.
