Computer supports a variety of existing and completely new applications. For example:
Ability to communicate with mobile users, such as personal digital assistants (PDA), Smartphone, and mobile communications and applications.
Online transactions. For example, a sales person at a shopping mall may enter an order for goods and charge a customer credit card to complete a transaction.
Remote data queries. For example, retailers can use the mobile network connection to monitor item availability or order status, directly from the customer’s site.
Transportation, such as air traffic control, rental car rental and return, shipping vehicles, trains, taxis, cars and trucks.
Previous IT applications.
Instead of the same data that is repeatedly inserted as they pass through a pricing (a series of business operations that add value to company or service products), they are entered only once and then transmitted electronically.
Commerce. Users of wireless devices can access the Internet, perform data searches, collaborate with others and make joint decisions, buy and sell anywhere.
Wireless communication supports both mobile computer applications and low cost installation of telecommunication cables. For example:
Temporary offices can be set up quickly and inexpensively through wireless networking.
Wireless connection to endless office environments usually works in areas with heavy or dangerous wires.
Installing a wireless connection can replace the leased lines used by local area networks (LANs), thus eliminating the cost of monthly line rent.
There are possibilities for mobile or wireless installations in many industries, such as:
Sales. Sales requests have been very successful so far, especially in department stores where there are regular order changes. And retail sales staff can do inventory in storage areas with PCs placed in a fork, and delivery and status updates by PCs within distribution trucks.
The mobile computer can be used for shipping, online diagnostic support from customer sites, and order / inventory parts for all types of work and sales tasks.
Factories / Manufacturing. Locations and appliances include store floor control systems or wireless applications that provide the added flexibility of setting up temps.
Health care / hospitals. Health care staff can access and submit information on patient records, or touch diagnostic comparison information, wherever the patient or health care worker is located.
Education. Pilot applications equip students with PCs in lecture halls, connected by a wireless network, for ongoing inquiries, additional information and support for graphics lessons, and online giving materials.
Banking / finance. The power of mobile commerce can assist in buying, selling, searching, trading, and other things, using the Internet or private networks
