Motion Computing Solution PartnerOur Solution Partner, Motion Computing, has launched an integrated in-vehicle computing solution which incorporates Blank-it  and is promoting it with the CL and X5 Vehicle Docks to transform mobile workflows all over the world.

Their flexible, space-saving & ergonomic solution easily integrates with Motion Tablet PCs to enhance mobile computing capabilities of public safety, utility and field service fleets

“Over the past 12 years, we’ve helped optimize the performance of mobile workers through purpose-built, rugged tablet PCs, tailored accessories and services,” said Peter Poulin, vice president, marketing at Motion. “We developed our In-Vehicle Computing Solutions for the growing number of mobile workers who rely on tablets inside their vehicles. As with all our solutions – the In-Vehicle Solution is designed to be flexible enough to enhance multiple workflows. It is also durable enough to meet both the safety and quality standards demanded by fleet managers at water utilities and other field service organizations.”

Motion’s in-vehicle docks feature Blank-it built-in to limit the use of computer displays while the vehicle is in motion. Blank-it also allows the fleet manager to configure what applications are accessible by the driver. And, for fleets with a driver-passenger set-up, the optional Swingaway/Blank-it solution provides full computing access for the passenger, even when the vehicle is in motion.

At Blank-it, we know that driver distraction should be a primary area of concern for operators of fleets of all sizes, and one that has to be addressed through policy, education and the use of technology-based solutions.

Blank-it has been designed specifically to address the problem of driver distraction caused by in-vehicle computers and laptops. It is easily installed, doesn’t rely on 3rd party input such as GPS, is fully customisable for different working environments and will help businesses conform to distracted driving legislation and OH&S requirements.
