How to improve scanning productivity and reduce RSI


Here at Toughbook, we understand the ever-increasing daily demands your logistics operation faces. 

More efficient delivery of increased volumes, at a lower price. As fast as possible, with the highest levels of customer communication and personalised service.

To maintain a competitive advantage, logistics businesses need to run the leanest operations, with as little costly downtime as possible. All the while maintaining speed and accuracy. Now, that’s quite a challenge. 


But recent research reveals the following:


As a result of poorly designed mobile scanning devices, over half of users are suffering from Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI).


Meaning decreased efficiency, lost days of work, and costs that can run into serious digits per employee.  


But it doesn’t have to be all pain no gain.
