The inability to accurately track the location and repair status of individual railroad freight cars as they are services by one of hundreds of privately- and railroad owned repair shops and depots scattered across tens of thousands of miles of track throughout North America.
In an industry where maximizing equipment utilization rates is a priority, such a costly problem becomes magnified by the fact that it may take weeks or even months for the car owner to receive an invoice detailing exactly what services were performed and at what cost.
Getac F110 -- which boasts Intel® Core™ i7 power, full ruggedization in a thin and light package, and a daylight and rainy-night usable LumiBond® 2.0, 11.6-inch touchscreen.
“Getac’s F110 was without a doubt not only the most powerful but the most versatile of the lot. It could be a tablet, it could be a standalone computer, a desktop with the docking station, it could be a laptop with the keyboard attachment. All these options combined with our tag reader, Getac’s barcode scanner and the built-in over-the-air modem was just the right package,” said Adam Boyd, Rail IQ, Owner and Founder
Getac F110 tablets bring 21st Century-tech into rail repair shops
Building Rail IQ’s proprietary AEI reader attachment into the Getac F110’s already robust barcode reader allows repair technicians to scan Automatic Equipment Identification (AEI) tag, loading specific freight car data – local and industrywide – in a matter of moments.
Frankly, I’m still in a kind of ‘pinch-me’ mode. Being able to build something this powerful, this productive, this absolutely needed by a major industry in so short a time still feels like a dream.
