Leading mobile computing, barcode and data capture solutions specialist, VisionID, has come up with a wireless Computer on Wheels (COW) that has been tried and tested and received rave reviews from manufacturing and life sciences industry giants in Ireland, EMC and Janssen Biologistics.

The top Tipperary technology firm, which is based in the Gurtnafluer Business Park in Clonmel, has linked up with UK-based product designers RPD to provide the custom solutions that save time and money for Ireland’s critical manufacturing and pharma sectors.

The units supplied encompass all the components of a desk in a moveable, ergonomic workstation. Each COW is tailored and configured to the individual customer’s requirements and is adaptable to meet their changing needs.

Cathal Murtagh, Sales Director for VisionID, says the response from industry has been nothing short of phenomenal and so encouraging that it plans to expand its workforce in Clonmel from 21 to 25 in anticipation of a peak in demand.

“Clients are looking for big screen data capture and data entry on a mobile workstation for on-the-job applications of inputting information into an ERP system such as SAP or an MES (manufacturing execution system). The screen size of a typical mobile computer is unsuitable to accommodate such work.

Our COW offers a wireless solution around the factory floor, using real-time communication through WiFi on a choice of thin client, touch computer, laptop or full desktop PC. All are powered from the base battery pack, giving six hours operational time after a full charge.

VisionID are the exclusive supplier of RDP carts or COWs in the Irish market to manufacturing sector and we are delighted to work with a precision engineering team such as RDP. RDP have the ability to customise bespoke projects in both the COWs and the wall mounts to suit each customer’s operational needs and applications”, he stated.
