Delivering speed & accuracy for mobile workers: raising the productivity bar with Ivanti Velocity terminal emulation
Ivanti’s Velocity terminal emulation tool (powered by Wavelink, who have been helping to improve supply chain efficiency for over 30 years) enables you to transfer your existing IBM i-based green screen applications to Android. And, at the same time add touch-enabled features and functionality that users have come to expect.
Implementing Ivanti Velocity as part of your IBM i modernisation and / or Windows CE migration strategy, helps you to protect and maximise your existing investment in your host, IBM i system as there is no need to modify or migrate those business-critical applications. Ivanti Velocity can interface with your warehouse management system (WMS) and other supply chain management applications: just like Ivanti Terminal Emulation has always done.
Ivanti Velocity takes the text-based information from your IBM i application and converts it into the type of intuitive mobile experience your users have come to expect. This familiar user interface and experience means new users can be trained quicker, while operatives can navigate screens more quickly and enter data more rapidly. Third-party information can also be incorporated, such as images into picking lists so that warehouse operatives can visually match parts to items listed on an order.
To solve one of the eternal issues associated with terminal emulation in areas of poor network coverage, Ivanti’s Session Persistence Server protects against weak connections and session state as and when a device reboots or needs a battery swap.
