The current business scenario necessitates connectivity, instant communication and permanent access. Computers that once stayed in homes and offices, have been condensed in size to such an extent that today it is possible to have hand held computers that would remain connected to the main computer, and therefore, there can be a constant exchange of information and regular updates, and enhance efficiency with effective action taking place without any wastage of time. It is literally a question of moving the office to the field in terms of updates and communication. Handheld computers meet the requirements of employees who have field assignments and critical tasks to accomplish outdoors, and the software installed helps companies to stay connected to them. As a result efficiency improves, assistance can be provided from the office to the field staff without wasting time and helps to assign the right person to the right location at the right time. Handheld computers are an instrument of supplying mobile intelligence to workers on outdoor locations. They have also enabled business processes to be initiated at the point of contact to accelerate the pace of business transactions.
A hand held computer is a personal digital assistant and is also called a palm top computer, though the multiple tasks it can accomplish make it function as a mobile phone, web browser or even a media player. It can access the Internet and its features include a touch screen for feeding in information, a memory card to ease data storage and some form of connectivity through Bluetooth or WiFi. Typical examples of handheld computers are the RIM Blackberry, the Apple iPhone and the Nokia N-Series.
The most important aspect of handheld computers is the synchronization of data with computers. This helps in keeping all team members in a loop with constant updates about all that is happening and all that needs attention. The end result is improved customer relations, higher productivity and employee satisfaction in staying connected on the personal front as well. The cost cutting that ensues need hardly be elaborated since unnecessary commuting and time wasted going back and forth or delayed decisions all combine to trim expenses.
Handheld computers are beneficial for workers in all types of industries. For instance, in the retail segment the staff gets to keep track of latest buying trends and manufacturers can keep track of their latest warehouse status; financial personnel are able to get latest updates, and the fields of health and education get information of the most current status.
While handheld computers need an initial investment but their long-term benefits far outweigh the expense involved.

In most cases you’ll also discover that you will require a bar code printer, by choosing the Zebra TLP2844Barcode printer is a great decision, it’s small and portable but will handle expectations of many organizations
One of the things I like about residing out of town is the peace and quiet that living away from the daily hustle and bustle can bring. After a hard week working in the city nothing can compete with the peace and calm of a semi- rural location, blue skies and the lack of unwelcome interruptions. Of course, wherever there are advantages there will always be disadvantages and foremost of these is the lack of mobile phone network coverage. While I shall concede that out in the open, 3 bars of signal strength is more than adequate to make and receive calls, as soon as one ventures indoors then this signal soon dissipates to virtually nothing.
Weak Mobile Signals?
The problem here is that mobile signals are easily absorbed by the walls of your home – where the signal is strong to begin with this isn’t necessarily a problem, but where it is not so good then it can be virtually impossible to make a connection at all.
While not the end of the world, this necessitates a fixed line telephone, just in case one actually needs to make or receive a call – which, in this day and age, seems a little archaic?
Femtocell or Access Gateway
Thankfully, there may now be a solution to this annoying problem in the shape of a small box of tricks known as a Femtocell device. About the size of a paperback book or conventional internet router, the device uses your existing broadband internet connection to route your mobile calls via the internet. In effect, the Femtocell creates a mobile base station within your own home. Even if the ambient mobile signal is very weak, or non-existent, you will still be able to make and receive calls with near perfect clarity.
The device, also known as an Access Gateway, can handle up to 4 calls at once and will even support data transfer and text messaging. So, all of your family members can benefit from this technology as well.
It’s expected that eventually these devices will also be able to connect to mobile broadband services – so instead of having a Wi-Fi connection you’ll be able to connect via the Access Gateway? This could prove to be popular as many people have problems with the reliability of wireless internet connections, not to mention the added expense of equipment.
Win-Win for the Mobile Operators?
Some commentators have pointed out the obvious advantages this offers the mobile networks – in effect you are supplementing their infrastructure with your broadband connection. However, if it’s a service you are likely to find useful then you may as well just go a long with it – you have broadband anyway, why not get the most use from it?
Unfortunately, the Femtocell or Access Gateway devices aren’t free – they are being sold outright for around £160 or can be included as part of a monthly call plan. However, if you are currently only managing to make calls from your back garden or by hanging from an upstairs window then it may well be an investment worth making?
Get the most from your mobile phone with a mobile access gateway and enjoy perfect call quality in your own home or office at any time of the day.
