ATMS plc, Birmingham based provider of system solutions and hardware for the logistics market and freight warehouse providers, has been appointed as the exclusive distributor for the UK and Middle East for the Navista range of mobile terminals.

The first unit to be launched is the U900 with an inbuilt bar code scanner and WiFi. The unit is lightweight yet rugged, and is certified to a drop test of 1.2 meters. Options are available for GPS tracking, 2D bar code scanning, and GPRS mobile communications. An SD card slot is built in. The unit supports the standard Windows CE 5.1 operating system.

The high brightness 3.5 inch colour touch screen display supports on-screen signature capture as standard but ATMS believe that what really makes this unit stand out from the crowd however is its low price, even for small quantities the unit cost is under £590.

Stephen Cross, Managing Director of ATMS commented:

“We have been looking for a low cost devices for some time now but the Navista unit is the first one that in our opinion meets or exceeds the quality of the major players, mobile devices are a major cost element of any project, the more money we can save our customers the faster their return on investment and the greater the uptake of this technology.”

ATMS has specialised in this market for over 20 years and has many major household name customers. ATMS will be providing a full support service for the Navista range of equipment with a full range of spares being held in the company’s workshop.
