Reasons to Use LCD Displays for Utility Services

Utility workers and outdoor repair people need tablets with reliable rugged LCD displays so that they can complete their work accurately, efficiently and without any unforeseeable technological issues that will slow them down. A lot of their work is very time-sensitive; therefore, these devices must be weather-resistant in order to work through even the toughest weather conditions without stalling. Companies cannot afford to keep replacing faulty machinery that cannot withstand some of the harsh weather or working conditions to which they will be exposed. Hence, it is important to invest in sturdy and reliable tablets that are equipped with rugged LCD monitors from the beginning. Having the tablet custom tailored to the needs of your company is also a smart idea.

The Importance of Rugged LCD Displays for Utility Services

There is currently a huge market surge for rugged LCD and touchscreen displays in the utilities and field industries because they increase productivity, optimize use of important resources, help track repair schedules and routes, help to track work orders, and so much more. On top of that, they typically come with a series of applications that can help make the job a lot easier and reduce work-induced stress for employees. Field work and repairs can be very high-stress jobs as workers often work in seemingly unsafe conditions and environments, making their jobs potentially dangerous. That is why they need to make sure that the equipment they are using is easy to use and dependable. LCD displays are usually equipped with a touchscreen function so that workers can navigate through the applications on their tablets with the utmost of ease.


Here are some of the most important applications that field workers use:

  • Delivery route optimization
  • Proof of service and payment collection
  • Shipping and receiving
  • Dispatch
  • Work order management
  • Asset management
  • Workforce automation
  • Telecommunications
  • Home repair and service
  • Resource optimization
  • Industrial equipment maintenance

All of these applications are well complemented by the rugged touchscreen feature that makes tablets much more accessible and useful for all field workers. The advent of the geographic information system (GIS) has made it possible for workers to collect all kinds of pertinent data that is relevant to their work and to effortlessly share these with their fellow employees or managers.

Foremen can easily assign tasks to their employees while also completing other important, work-related clerical tasks such as: documenting potentially dangerous work-related situations or structures, ensuring safety regulations are met on the jobsite, recording and reporting damage to jobsites and coming up with solutions to repair them, and setting schedules and timelines to complete the work in a timely manner. In a way, it is easy to think of rugged LCD monitors as one of your employees rather than just a tool used on the job.
