ATLANTA — The Material Handling Industry has named IntelliSkin and GDS Technology from RAM Mounts as the winner of its 2016 MHI Innovation Award. MHI has recognized IntelliSkin for the value it brings users in the materials handling space by protecting consumer devices from the rugged daily use on warehouse floors and in trucking.
IntelliSkin is a protective device case that features an integrated power connector compatible with any GDS charging dock. This prevents damage to the device charging port and creates a universal docking platform compatible with any device wrapped with an IntelliSkin case. IntelliSkin ruggedizes the consumer devices that are permeating business and adds functionality by simplifying the frequent docking and undocking of smartphones and tablets, which is especially common in the materials handling environment.
“Just like the goods that go from the warehouse to your house, we wanted to build a product that protects the device every step of the journey,” said Aaron Hersey, Vice President of Marketing at RAM Mounts. “IntelliSkin with GDS Technology ensures that the mobile devices that companies use to deliver goods around the world are protected for their entire life span, which can significantly lower operating costs.”
The thick corners of IntelliSkin cases for tablets allows for the attachment of a neck or shoulder strap accessory while also providing extra drop protection to the device. IntelliSkin for tablets also includes an integrated feature to add a handstrap and kickstand functionality.
IntelliSkin cases are designed to work with RAM Mounts’ GDS Technology. GDS sets a standard by creating a uniform platform for connecting a variety of portable devices with power and data communication regardless of make and model. RAM Mounts’ GDS platform provides compatibility with many different devices. Plus, it offers docking stations with scalability as smartphone and tablet manufacturers introduce new generations of devices.
This new lineup of patented IntelliSkin cases are currently available for iOS devices as well as Android-based phones and tablets such as the Samsung S5 and S6, Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and 10.5, Galaxy Tab 4 7.0, 8.0 and 10.1, Galaxy Tab A 8.0 and 9.7, Galaxy Tab Active 8.0, Galaxy S2 8.0 and 9.7, Tab E 8.0 and 9.6 in addition to the Microsoft Surface 3.
