Rugged mobile devices alert you when they go missing

Get notified when a device is lost

It’s a fact. Businesses that rely on handheld mobile devices lose them. Regardless of whether they are rugged mobile computers, HHTs or wearables from companies such as Zebra, Honeywell or Datalogic, devices go missing daily. The time and financial impact of lost devices can be considerable. Our customers tell us that lost rugged devices cost them in the region of tens of thousands to millions of pounds per annum resulting from the impact in productivity from time searching, worker downtime and device replacement costs.

Devices alert you when they are missing

One challenge is knowing devices are missing in the first place, especially if you have hundreds in one location. Imagine a situation where a mobile device was misplaced and it wasn’t immediately obvious that it was missing. With Device Finder, devices are set to alert you when they are inactive for a defined period, such as 1 hour or more. This means that devices are effectively notifying you the moment they are lost, enabling you to proactively find, retrieve and redeploy them instantly.

Should you ever need to locate a missing device via Waizu then you can activate the Device Finder mobile application which will indicate where the device was last used. Walk to that location and activate the on-screen button to contact the device by ringing it.

This key feature has enabled customers to find missing rugged devices in the middle of stacked pallets, behind boxes, down the back of stocked shelves, on top of palletisers and even in the back of a lorry which was being loaded.
