StayLinked Corporation, the leader in modern Terminal Emulation solutions, and Bluebird, a leader in warehouse mobile computing, announced today that they are now working together to offer StayLinked software on Bluebird’s series of ruggedized handheld computers, featuring the Bluebird EF400, a pocket-sized touch mobile computer for harsh environments.
StayLinked’s SmartTE™ is at the forefront of the current migration from Windows to Android operating systems in the supply chain. SmartTE easily transforms traditional Terminal Emulation screens into graphical, touch-based screens in a fraction of the time of competitive products. This new relationship will allow Bluebird customers to seamlessly migrate to new devices and operating systems in a matter of hours, not weeks or months as with other solutions.
Bluebird handhelds and tablets run sophisticated mobile apps and data collection software on a powerful platform that is extremely familiar and easy to use. Bluebird devices, such as the Bluebird EF400 and EF500, are sealed against water and dust and can streamline a variety of tasks: Scan barcodes in a warehouse, look up stock on a sales floor, or take them on the road in a delivery truck. And with StayLinked Terminal Emulation, Bluebird can now offer customers modernized Terminal Emulation applications using StayLinked SmartTE, while also allowing them to gain visibility into their production environment using the integrated business intelligence and analytics of StayLinked iQ™.
“Because of StayLinked’s reputation for session persistence and unparalleled support, we are excited to include StayLinked’s Terminal Emulation solution on our ruggedized devices,” said Bluebird’s Scott Lee, Head of North America Business, Global Business Division. “We are pleased to offer StayLinked pre-loaded on Bluebird Android devices. We are also eager to offer our customers the integrated business analytics that comes with StayLinked iQ. StayLinked will be a crucial part of our Terminal Emulation strategy moving forward.
The unique architecture of StayLinked Terminal Emulation connects mobile devices to host-based applications such as Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) in a very reliable, secure, and high-performance manner.
“It’s a pleasure to be a part of Bluebird’s efforts in warehouse devices and applications,” said StayLinked President, Dan Hogan. “We are thrilled to join Bluebird in enabling their customers both to modernize Terminal Emulation applications and to gain deeper insights into their business processes.”
With the introduction of host-based, thin client emulation in 2002, StayLinked Terminal Emulation changed the landscape of wireless host-based application delivery and stability. The company has continued to drive innovation with true software-only emulation session persistence; centralized session configuration, control, and management of wireless emulation sessions (Telnet/SSH); terminal emulation application modernization (SmartTE), and the only Business Intelligence product designed for terminal emulation environments (StayLinked iQ). StayLinked software is available for all popular mobile devices from those running traditional operating systems such as DOS, CE, and Windows Mobile to the latest versions of iOS and Android.
