LUCCA, Italy, June 19, 2014 (Press Release) -
Futura's training and support division, ProCare, has taken its ProTablet portable device to a new level with applications which are tailored to the entire tissue production operation.
The original ProTablet changed the use and management of maintenance documentation for ever by offering access to continuously updated documentation for all Futura tissue converting equipment in one rugged, portable device. The new ProTablet can now host a wide array of applications, from warehousing to maintenance, and as such has become a total management tool which can be personalised to the operation's needs. It can be linked to an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system to provide fully interactive management on the move.
As with the original ProTablet, customers can access exploded views and detailed procedural videos with ease. Simply by scanning a barcode on the relevant component with ProTablet's built in reader, the user can call up all documentation and other resources relevant to the task at hand. But beyond that, it releases numerous further vital tasks from dependency on time and place.
The new ProTablet has full PC functionality, and can be docked and integrated with the Customer's own IT system, or linked to a projector for professional training. ProTablet can also be used to send spare parts requests direct to ProCare or an internal purchasing office.
ProCare manager Alessandro Viani said: "This new version of ProTablet has condensed a host of essential ingredients into the most compact of formats. It is hard to overestimate its potential contribution to the efficiency of tissue manufacturing and converting operations."
