The City of Pueblo was particularly in need of outstanding customer support, having been long underserved by another provider that failed to perform on service requests, overall customer experience and technical issues. When the City of Pueblo was due for a refresh, Getac and HP approached City IT Director Lori Pinz, “Getac had to bring solid customer service. We needed a team to support our complex operations, and they had to prove to us that they would do just that.”
Getac V110 convertible laptops were chosen due to their lightweight design and sunlight-readable display, and were outfitted with custom barcode readers and GPS for drivers license recognition and location positioning.
After a rigorous two phase field pilot program, several formal command staff presentations and onsite visits every few weeks to answer questions, Getac and HP suggested the Getac V110 fully rugged convertible notebook.
The pilot program testing was comprised of a bench test for form factor ID and the second phase was in-car testing. Getac’s V110 was suggested due to its lightweight design, 7th generation Intel processors and sunlight-readable large 11.6” display.
Getac presented a specialized rugged solution with a V110 laptop that can meet the extreme demands of public safety work. Outstanding customer service included with every Getac product cuts crucial downtime to keep public safety operations up and running.

The City of Pueblo chose Getac devices to improve public safety and response times. Getac and HP have the potential to expand this solution as needs increase with population.
“After recognizing that Getac would fit both our hardware and our service needs, the choice to go with Getac was simple, Serving the community is a rigorous, crucial and demanding profession, and the computers we chose had to be strong enough to survive what we put them through daily.
