Natural Gas Producer Uses Mobility Solution to Maximize Worker Utilization and Improve Logistics Planning: The Xplore XSLATE B10 fully rugged tablet was the only mobile computing platform that met TGS’ HazLoc safety and logistics simplicity standards after a series of field tests. Today, it is being applied across a number of business functions. For example, the Argentine energy company is currently using the Intel®-powered 10.1” Windows® tablet to expedite the completion of work orders related to the maintenance of its widely distributed production assets. It is also integrating the rugged mobile computers into its warehousing and delivery environments.
“TGS had a variety of business challenges and mobility goals it was trying to address with a single mobility platform,” explained Catanzaro. “After extensive performance, connectivity and reliability evaluations, the XSLATE B10 proved to be the most capable and scalable solution. It can easily be applied across a number of maintenance, production and delivery workflows, and it provides a user experience that mimics the manual processes with which workers had long been accustomed. This allowed TGS to easily transition workers to the paperless environment.”
