Psion Omnii RT15™ delivers breakthrough in enterprise mobility

Date: 24-May-2012

New device reflects customer demands for an adaptable, rugged and sleek specialized device for use in the field

Psion (LSE: PON) extends its successful modular product portfolio with the recent launch of the Omnii™ RT15, a rugged handheld device that combines modularity, performance and durability for mobile workers in the field. The Omnii RT15 is a result of Psion’s strategy where customer and partner input has informed the development of a sleeker, ruggedized handheld device for field service, delivery, field data collection and transportation. The new device is also part of Psion’s Omnii Advantage programme, enabling Omnii RT15 customers to upgrade one of the main modules after one full year of ownership, further extending the value of the Omnii RT15.

“The Omnii RT15, combined with the Omnii Advantage and the Windows Embedded Handheld platform represents a breakthrough in the enterprise device market designed to drive down the total cost of ownership,” said David Wurster, senior product manager for Windows Embedded at Microsoft. “Windows Embedded platforms are engineered to deliver reliability, security and efficiency to connected devices and intelligent systems across industries, making it the operating system of choice for the Omnii RT15 that shares similar core values.”

 “The combination of the Omnii modular platform, working together with Microsoft and the adaptable nature of the devices enables us to deliver exceptional value in terms of lower total cost of ownership.”
