AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 31, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Xplore Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ:XPLR) today announced that a global dietary supplement manufacturer has started upgrading its forklift mobility solutions to the Xplore XSLATE D10 fully rugged Android™ tablet. The 10.1" Intel®-powered, forklift-mounted mobile computers now serve as the primary information source for a number of warehouse management workflows, including inventory picking. Additional XSLATE D10 orders are anticipated as the manufacturer continues to upgrade its mobile technology in other production and warehousing facilities.

"This health and wellness industry leader understands the value that tablet computers bring to their operations, but they have learned over the last several years that they really need the security and performance of a professional-grade mobility solution," explained Mark Holleran, president and CEO of Xplore. "That is why they decided to transition away from their previous Windows Mobile tablets, and why iPads were not considered a viable option within their factories or warehouses."

As this customer started evaluating its options, they quickly realized that the Xplore XSLATE D10 was the ideal solution. The latest generation of the forklift-mountable IP65 tablet runs Android 6.0.1, Marshmallow, which supports encryption at the operating system (OS) level - a strict requirement of their parent pharmaceutical company.
