Janam's XT2 Rugged, RFID-enabled Touch Computer Certified for IntelliTrack's Android App

Janam Technologies, a provider of rugged mobile computers, and IntelliTrack, a cloud-based inventory software provider, have announced that Janam's XT2 RFID-enabled rugged touch computer is certified to run IntelliTrack's Stratus Mobile for Android application.

Stratus Mobile for Android is an app that can be integrated with QuickBooks, and is designed to help companies eliminate the costly challenges associated with inventory control, including shortages and overstocks, by providing inventory-management insight for small- to mid-sized businesses. When used with Janam's XT2 rugged touch computer, and when combined with the Stratus cloud-based desktop application, the app provides companies with an easy-to-use, intuitive inventory-management solution, according to the two companies. The application enables customers to capture operational data in real time, and to improve inventory reporting accuracy via the XT2's bar-code and RFID reading capabilities.

The XT2 is a small, rugged mobile computer that weighs just 10 ounces, with a 5-inch color display; 4G LTE wireless connectivity; dual-band Wi-Fi, GPS, 1D and 2D bar-code scanning; and RFID and Near Field Communication (NFC) reading capabilities. It is available in both Android 5 Lollipop and Microsoft Windows 10 IoT Mobile Enterprise versions.

"Inventory is one of the largest expenses for many of our customers," said Doug Lloyd, Janam Technologies' VP of global sales operations, in a prepared statement. "We are thrilled that our partnership with IntelliTrack will enable our customers to significantly reduce these costs with a robust and affordable solution that provides real-time visibility to inventory levels and enables organizations to make smarter decisions about their business."

"IntelliTrack and Janam have a long-running strategic partnership that now further evolves with support for Janam's XT2 series of rugged touch computers," added Ronald Pawlowski, IntelliTrack's COO, in the statement. "We have optimized our Stratus Mobile app to run flawlessly on the XT2 and believe our customers will achieve multiple benefits by leveraging our Stratus software and this device. The XT2's competitive price point, rugged durability and user-friendly form factor make this a win/win for both companies."
