Xplore Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ: XPLR), maker of the most rugged tablets on Earth, has been in the business of developing, integrating, and marketing industrial grade rugged tablets for our customers in the Energy, Utilities, Manufacturing and Distribution, Public Safety, Field Services, Transportation, and Military sectors for over 15 years.
Xplore Tablets use the most powerful and modern processors and components and are tested more vigorously for shock, thermal, vibration, impact, ingress and emissions than any other PC in the industry. SNNLive spoke with Philip Sassower, Chairman and CEO of Xplore Technologies Corp. at the Aegis Capital Corp. Healthcare & Technology Conference 2014 in Las Vegas, NV.
“Xplore Technologies makes the most rugged tablet computer in the world. Our ultra-rugged model, the Wildcat C6, is a device that has very unusual DNA, it’s IP67, it can operate underwater, it can take tremendous vibration and shock, it operates at an extreme thermal range from -40 degrees in artic conditions to 167 degrees in a desert," begins Mr. Sassower.
He continues by pointing out the disadvantages of using consumer products, such as the iPad, for business purposes, “Now what we’re out there seeing is that people who are bringing this consumer-grade product to business, many times that device doesn’t have the power of a full PC. Our tablet does everything that your PC on your desk will do and on top of that it’s ultra-rugged. So it’s a value proposition for those that need that functionality and need that power and want that ultra-ruggedness.”
“Our market is the enterprise market where customers, after they evaluate our product, are buying multiple thousands of units. I think that the consumer could benefit by a more durable, rugged product but to be quite candid I don’t know it’s in the interest of Apple to necessarily make a more rugged solution because when you break your iphone or you break your ipad, because you have everything on itunes you’re going to buy another one of those devices. So they are not worried about the longevity of that product, in fact they try to introduce a new model every 6 months to a year to antiquate their model,” explains Mr. Sassower.
He adds, “Ours is a business environment and people want their people who are out there in the field – if you got 4 or 5 installations to do in a day and a device breaks after the first or second visit, your fellow is finished for the day and he goes home and it’s a tremendous loss of productivity.” For more information, check out their website at www.xploretech.com
