Tech Data targets Blue Light services with Panasonic’s extended rugged mobile range

October 16, 2014

Basingstoke, 16 October 2014 – Tech Data UK is targeting the emergency services with Panasonic’s Toughbook family of rugged mobile devices having recently taken on an extended range of the company’s notebooks, tablets and industrial handhelds.

The Toughbook range of devices are designed for challenging working conditions, making them ideal for use by the emergency and military services and many other parts of the public and commercial sector. Tech Data has recently extended its already successful partnership with Panasonic and is now working with the company to raise awareness of the Toughbook line amongst resellers.

Stewart Hayward, Marketing Services Director at Tech Data said: “The Panasonic Toughbook range addresses a segment market that no other mobile vendor has really targeted and with our specific focus on the public sector, we see really good potential here with the Blue Light services in particular. Panasonic offers excellent benefits and incentives and this is a great opportunity to take these ultra-durable systems out to a wider market.”

As well as being tough, Panasonic systems such as the Toughpad 4K are also stylish. But all models are capable of withstanding the most testing conditions, so police, first responders, military support professionals, site or vehicle engineers can all get on with their work – fast and securely. The fully rugged Toughbook models are dust, water, vibration and drop proof from a height of up to 180cm. The Toughbook range is designed to operate in both extremely low and high temperatures. They offer daylight visible screens, excellent graphics and long battery life.
