For example, emergency first responders require real-time access to electronic patient health records and barcode/RFID and smart card readers to help verify IDs, check operational procedures, and ensure patient confidentiality; field utilities engineers need weather resistance, the ability to operate the screen while wearing gloves, and long battery life; while logistics customers may need to move between cold storage areas and sun-baked yards, barcode or RFID readers to identify items, and programmable buttons for quick and simple processing.
