What Are Handheld Computers?

Handheld computers are mobile terminals designed for data collection. An increasing number of devices are being used not only in the logistics industry, but also manufacturing and retail industries. This section explains the main characteristics, functions, and basic structure of handheld computers.

Handheld Computers Used in Various Industries

The term handheld computer refers to highly portable terminals designed for data collection. In recent years, they are commonly used for part and product management using items such as barcodes and 2D codes. Handheld computers require excellent operability, durability, waterproofing, and dustproofing to enable their use in a wide variety of industries and situations.

Expansion of the market share in the logistics, manufacturing, and retail industries

The advantage of handheld computers is their ability to collect and process data in real time. This advantage is put to good use through the wide-spread use of handheld computers in the logistics industry, where new data is constantly generated in the processes of inventory management, receiving and shipping inspections, delivery, and pickup.

Furthermore, receiving, shipping, and picking work are performed on a daily basis not only in the logistics industry but also in the manufacturing industry, making handheld computers a necessity in that industry as well. Handheld computers greatly reduce the amount of labor required for most daily tasks, leading to more efficient work in production management and traceability. They are even used in the retail industry in a wide variety of operations such as inventory management and product management.
