Reduce TCO and Improve TVO

According to research*1 by IDC Japan regarding average yearly repairs*2, in a company that introduced 1,000 mobile PCs, it was found that 3.25 units were sent for repair each month. PC breakdowns not only cost money, but waste time and labor while the repair is being done. To control such losses, an effective solution is to introduce a more rugged type of PC. The superior ruggedness of the Panasonic mobile PC reduces TCO by controlling losses caused by PC breakdowns and boosts TVO by increasing productivity and operating effectiveness.
