The latest Panasonic TOUGHBOOK solutions are helping emergency services across the country to bolster operational efficiency and increase ROI. In emergency response vehicles, TOUGHBOOK devices used as Mobile Data Terminals (MDTs) have become the norm, delivering live updates to drastically reduce response times and deliver an increasingly efficient public service. Many UK&I fire, ambulance and police forces use TOUGHBOOK devices in specialist roles within their services, ranging from personal issue devices to essential in-vehicle tools.

From MDT solutions to personal issue tablets and handhelds, the Panasonic TOUGHBOOK stand will host the devices most popular within the industry. This includes the TOUGHBOOK G2, a commonly employed demountable rugged tablet within ambulance, fire and police services, and the TOUGHBOOK 33, a primary device in over 4000 frontline fire appliances, and deployed alongside other TOUGHBOOK solutions to make up over 80% of all UK frontline mobile fire devices.

“In the public sector, a well-considered mobile computing strategy has the power to radically improve response times and efficiency, effectively supporting emergency services and streamlining their workload,” said Peter Thomas, Strategy Manager for Public Sector at Panasonic Mobile Solutions Business Division Europe. “BAPCO is a highlight in our events calendar, allowing us to work with customers directly to develop their digital strategies, offer technical advice, and answer any burning questions to ensure the right teams are paired with the right solutions. We look forward to spending valuable time with customers and partners and showcasing the latest and greatest rugged mobile computing tech for this sector.”
