Renovotec launches new ‘rent 10 for the price of 8’ scheme for logistics rugged handheld devices

  • Company claims a market first for new hardware rental business model
  • Honeywell Dolphin™ 70e Black is first rugged handheld on offer at 10-for-8
  • Hardware rental should be managed in much the same way as conventional ownership” says Renovotec managing director Richard Gilliard

Renovotec, the UK’s fastest growing rugged hardware provider is launching an innovative ‘rent 10 for the price of renting 8’ scheme for rugged, handheld devices designed for the mobile enterprise. Honeywell’s ‘Dolphin™ 70e Black’ is the first product on offer under the scheme, for which Renovotec is also claiming a market first.

“Hardware rental should be managed in much the same way as conventional ownership, with technical service and support” says Renovotec managing director Richard Gilliard. “To date it has had a lower profile than ownership – but it can provide almost unlimited flexibility for the peaks and troughs faced by any mobile enterprise.”

The Dolphin 70e Black is an enterprise hybrid device (EHD) for the mobile enterprise, designed to combine consumer style and touch-screen usability with the reliability and longevity of a rugged handheld device. It is water and dust-resistant, can be operated in extreme temperatures to -20 degrees centigrade and survive multiple drops onto concrete.  The Dolphin 70e Black can be customised for Microsoft Embedded Handheld 6.5 or Google® Android™ operating systems and tracked in real time from any location.

Renovotec is a leading exponent of rugged hardware as a service, or r-HaaS, which combines technical product support with zero capital outlay and allows companies to scale their hardware in line with need.
