StayLinked Terminal Emulation products for the warehousing, manufacturing, transportation & retail sectors
It is estimated that 70% of ruggedised mobile devices, such as those provided by Zebra Technologies, run a terminal emulation tool of some kind. However, modern, touchscreen devices are driving a demand for a graphically rich user experience for enterprise and business related applications – regardless of the environment in which they operate.
For over 20 years StayLinked has been delivering world-class solutions for mission-critical, host-based systems in the warehousing, manufacturing, transportation, and retail industries. It was StayLinked’s deep understanding of these host-based systems that led their team of technology experts to introduce new innovations in terminal emulation and session management for mobile devices.
SmartTE from StayLinked
With StayLinked SmartTE you get the best of both worlds with risk-free IBM i application modernisation. You continue to realise the speed, reliability and security of StayLinked TE while increasing productivity and usability with the addition of an intuitive, modern user experience.
Increased productivity: SmartTE enables businesses running IBM i green screen applications to transform them so that they look and operate like any other native application on modern, mobile devices running Android or iOS. Operators will intuitively understand how to use graphical, touchscreen applications and can be trained much more quickly to use your existing applications.
Investment protection: leverage the power and protect your existing investment in your IBM i host applications and servers.
Unsurpassed reliability: built on advanced terminal emulation architecture, StayLinked SmartTE virtually eliminates dropped sessions between the mobile device and the host application – an issue often found in other TE tools. Regardless of the problem stems from poor wireless connectivity in the warehouse, issues with the device battery or device reboots, the terminal emulation session will never be lost. SmartTE can:
- Transfer sessions to another mobile device
- Share sessions across multiple devices
- Maintain sessions across cellular networks if mobile coverage is lost temporarily.
Automatic App screen creation: dynamic screen generation automatically converts terminal emulation screens into touchscreen experiences that users have come to expect – without having to touch the original IBM i application. Your new user interface look and feel is generated based on parameter settings including, but not limited to:
- Tapspot detection
- Graphic fields
- Colour schemes
- Background images.
Custom screen designer: want to create a different look and feel from those screens dynamically generated by SmartTE? No problem, as StayLinked provides a drag and drop screen designer which requires no programming skills. With the custom screen designer you can add your company branding, product images, change button sizes and many more – and all without having to change anything in the IBM i application.
Free upgrade for current customers: SmartTE features are offered as a free upgrade to existing StayLinked customers with an active maintenance and support contract.
