Tauranga City Council selects Panasonic Toughpads for outdoor tasks8th August 2016     By: Panasonic NZ

Tauranga City Council has recently chosen Microsoft Windows-powered Panasonic Toughpads for employees engaged in outdoor tasks. With these new devices, building and water engineers now have a reliable solution to carry out their tasks come rain or shine.

Located in one of New Zealand's fastest growing cities, the Tauranga City Council (TCC) is responsible for a range of local services for the region, including roads, water, sewerage, waste collection, parks and reserves, and libraries.

Delivering improved efficiency and easy access to information for workers, Panasonic's Toughbook mobile computers allow TCC employees to more effectively check equipment and new buildings for conformity with safety and standards regulations.

The devices selected by TCC from Panasonic's family of Toughpads includes Windows and Android models in a range of screen sizes, is the 10.1-inch Toughpad FZ-G1.

The FZ-G1 10.1-inch pairs a field-tested, fully-rugged durable and light weight design with the latest, fifth-generation Intel Core i5 vPro processor and features which include a rain and glove-sensitive touchscreen; a 13-hour (26 with optional large battery) battery; integrated cellular connectivity and high accuracy satellite GPS.

Engineered to withstand the hard knocks, drops and spills of real life on the road, the FZ-G1 is built to operate flawlessly in every environment - from intense heat, to pouring rain and freezing temperatures. With MIL-STD-810G certification, it is capable of withstanding a 6-foot drop, while the all-weather IP65-certified dust and water resistant design is capable of standing up to rain and even partial immersion without missing a beat.

This device has a 10.1-inch screen and the Windows operating system makes it particularly advantageous for organisations like TCC as it is easily integrated into existing infrastructure and management frameworks, and runs standard business applications.
