MC45 Mobile Computer


Regardless of whether you are a small or medium-sized business, or in an emerging market, or if your field workforce is repairing equipment, writing sales or picking up and delivering shipments, they all have one thing in common — they are your daily touch point with your customers. How fast and how well they perform their jobs directly impacts your revenue, customer satisfaction, customer retention — and the cost of your labor pool.

The MC45 is the affordable way to give your workers the real-time information they need to get the job done right, right on the spot, preventing lost sales — and lost customers. Your workers get the sleek consumer styling and one-handed operation they expect, along with the features, durability, security and manageability your business demands.

  • True field durability

    The MC45 is built for life out in the field, able to handle drops, bumps, spills, dust, vibration and the thermal shock that often occurs as workers travel from a climate controlled vehicle to the outdoors.
