The need to manage the supply chain across multiple providers and functions
Yes that's my Challenge

Maintaining effective management of the supply chain is always a major challenge to businesses in the construction industry. Data and applications are held in distinct locations, accurate information at the point of contact with these diverse providers isn’t easy to access and sharing integrated plans and knowledge is constantly difficult.

Not with Toughbooks, however. Thanks to world-class connectivity, access to the myriad of data and systems can be maintained, no matter where your field representative is based. Exceptional durability and resistance to hostile situations means data and plans can be shared, wherever the contact is made. Finally, functionality such as GPS, field cameras, HSPA and application-specific modules, means a Toughbook can perform a range of functions that usually demands several individual devices.
