The Solution

Mobile and compact workstations

Our Mobile Workstations and compact workstations or wall-mounts offer real-time, wifi communication from anywhere on the work or factory floor, on your choice of thin client; touch screen computer; laptop or full desktop PC, powered by our outstanding portable battery packs which offer 6 hours of work time on a single charge.

Peripherals such as a standard monitor; touch monitor; corded or cordless scanner and local or wireless barcode printer can easily be attached, as befits your workplace requirements.

At VisionID, our passion is the design and crafting of products which outperform those that already exist in the market, at far more economical rates. VisionID will go out of its way to solve a customer requirement where no suitable product actually exists. Proof of this is in the fact that many of our most popular products began life as innovations driven by customer request.

Our innovative Mobile workstations have been successful additions to the workplaces of a host of high profile clients, including EMC.

As Robert Jones, VisionID’s Managing Director says, regarding the requirements that drive our success: “people are looking for big screen data capture and data entry on mobile workstations, for on-the-job applications of inputting information into ERP systems such as SAP or MES/Manufacturing Execution Systems, for which the screen size of the average mobile computer is just not sufficient.”

VisionID’s Mobile Workstations are now in high demand, with 600 units off the production line and counting. A comprehensive selection of flexible accessories, innovative but simple modular design, along with rugged and durable construction work together to make the VisionID Mobile Workstation one of the most successful solutions on the market.
