The importance of a forklift tablet mount

Warehouse efficiency is paramount to the overall success of a business. Whether it’s a retail or grocery store or a large clothing or consumer goods brand, the warehouse is where overall organization efficiency can be significantly improved or hindered.

In the Warehouse & Logistics channel there is continued pressure on ways to maximize and optimize inventory space, adopting lean inventory strategies, and utilizing new warehouse devices to improve warehouse productivity.

When it comes to warehouse devices, it’s essential to know how to use them and where to use them. In this article, we’re going to discuss the importance of a forklift tablet mount for your warehouse devices.

What is a forklift tablet mount and Why Does My Warehouse Need Them?

Material handling or forklift tablet mounts, holders, and bases are a unique solution allowing forklift operators and warehouse employees to utilize warehouse devices in multiple ways both on the forklift and as a mobile device as well . A reliable tablet mounting bracket for a forklift will be versatile and can attach to various shapes and locations throughout your warehouse.

To understand what makes a forklift tablet mount so essential, let’s look at an example of a warehouse without these mounts. This particular warehouse just invested in picking devices, but the company didn’t invest in forklift mounts. So, when employees are driving around the warehouse, they have to place the device in their lap or on the seat next to them.

Doing so can result in distracted forklift driving, which can be dangerous, as well as wasted time. Utilizing a forklift mount would allow the warehouse crew to see where they need to go without taking their eyes off what’s in front of them. This results in saved time and a safer warehouse for all.

Choosing the Right Forklift Tablet Mount For Your Warehouse

Before you choose your forklift mount, ask yourself these questions:

IS THE FORKLIFT TABLET MOUNT COMPATIBLE WITH MULTIPLE DEVICES?

Be wary of choosing mounts that only work with specific devices. New devices and product upgrades are common in this industry and choosing a future-proof mount extends the longevity of the mounts. Ideally the solution should have a Universal Tablet mount that is compatible with multiple devices from companies including Zebra, Honeywell, Panasonic, Samsung & Apple iPad. This ensures a seamless upgrade path for new technology.

Is the tablet mounting bracket for your forklift easy to use?

Ease of use is critical to best use case. Ideally, the mount should make it seamless to both lock-in and take out the device, as there will be times when employees will need to use it outside of the forklift. Simple to order, install and use are key factors in selecting a forklift tablet mount.

IS IT BUILT TO LAST?

A forklift tablet mount needs to be built to withstand the everyday demands of a forklift truck, including impact, weather conditions, and vibration. Material composition is critical. The design of the mount should use the latest and most cost effective materials, that often means looking for solutions utilizing engineered polymer & advanced composite which provide strength, durability and functionality.

Is it Built to Last?

Because they will be used every day, the mounts need to be built to withstand the typical warehouse’s wear and tear. Engineered polymer allows and advanced composite are examples of materials that provide durability in addition to functionality.

Can it Be Attached to Multiple Structures?

We touched on this, but it’s worth repeating. It’s essential that the forklift tablet mount you choose can be adaptable not just with the devices it supports but the structures it can attach to. Many mounts in the category require multiple skus be ordered to create 1 solution. When a single sku mount can be used on any structure from 1”- 4”, it provides the opportunity for unlimited use cases.
