ASI Mobile for Android/iOS™ 

Smartphones are transforming business communications for the RIM services industry. Recognizing that drivers and warehouse staff are as likely to use a smartphone as a hand-held scanning device, ASI Mobile is now available for Android-enabled mobile phones. ASI Mobile for iOS devices is scheduled for release in February. A bonus benefit? It can eliminate the need to purchase proprietary mobile scanning devices, depending on certain factors.  Housing three scanning applications, as seen in these screenshots, ASI Mobile enables records centers and destruction companies to accomplish their daily operations with one solution – and now across even more mobile devices. Before installing ASI Mobile, you’ll want to confirm these system requirements are in place:
  • Latest version of VCK-SQL and/or Veri-Shred
  • Latest version of ASI Web Services
  • SSL on Web Services (required by      Android/iOS)

Tech Tip: Consumer vs. Commercial Ruggedized Mobile Devices

Thinking about incorporating consumer-grade mobile devices into daily operations at your RIM services facility? Consider these factors:

  • Environment: Will the device be exposed to hot or cold temps for prolonged periods? What about humidity or dusty environments?
  • Durability: Can the device withstand being tossed around or dropped on a concrete floor?
  • Efficiency: How accurate are the device’s scanning capabilities? Can it handle high-volume applications? Does it have a long battery life?
  • Determine TCO (Total Cost of Ownership): Take into account the failure rate for each and the hard and soft costs associated with downtime.
