Gerawan was already an experienced RF and mobile computer user with RF networks deployed throughout their facilities. But the company was looking for just the right handheld computers for these new applications. Based on his experience with Windows Mobile, Application Developer Diego Mendoza preferred hardware that could run that operating system for his in-house applications, developed using QuickBase API by Intuit. Gerawan warehouse and field staff wanted equipment that was lightweight, easy to use, and could function even out among Gerawan’s many acres of fruit trees. After searching the market, Gerawan chose LXE’s MX8 compact handheld computer running Windows Mobile 6.1 on an XScale processor with one-dimensional scanning.
