Ravi Panjwani, Vice President of Marketing and Product Management with Brother Mobile Solutions, notes: “Our goal with the RJ4200 series was to set a new, higher industry standard on mobile printers’ ease of use and integration, ruggedness, drop protection, connectivity, battery size and capacity. We set out to dramatically improve performance metrics and user experience as well ‒ and it has exceeded expectations in beta trial and early deployments. We think that users across market sectors such as route accounting, transportation, public safety, field service, manufacturing, warehouse operations will immediately recognize the value.”
Resounding Success in Trials
Heather Burnett, head of distributor sales for VIP (Vermont Information Processing), a leading provider of route accounting, data collection, warehouse management, and sales execution applications for the beverage industry, adds: “When we participated in the beta release of this product it became evident that the RJ4200 would meet the stringent requirements of even our toughest and most technologically advanced beverage distributors.” Burnett further comments: “We’re particularly impressed that this printer is so rugged and durable, and the compact, high-capacity battery is a real bonus.”
David Krebs, Industry Analyst and Executive Vice President of Enterprise Mobility at VDC Research Group believes the new series fills an important void. “The Mobile Deploy feature gives enterprises and fleets of all sizes remote management and support capabilities for business-critical field assets such as mobile printers. In addition, Mobile Deploy addresses many of the functionality gaps found in standard mobile device management solutions when supporting unique devices such as Bluetooth® printers.”
Shawn Sicking, Vice President of Technology Sales for Saltus Technologies, developer of digiTICKET ecitation software for the public safety sector comments that, “Printer size, power and mounting configurations are of paramount importance in the cop car, and the active docking station available with the RJ4200 series resolves a key space issue faced by police departments nationwide.”
