A large portion of the enterprise has largely been void of automation to date. It is one of the most critical elements of the enterprise food chain and the element that also deals with the most critical of processes. . . . change of ownership of goods and services. While much effort and resources have gone into automating inside the walls of the enterprise, the fringes of supply chains or service chains processes are still being executed on Clipboards. There is an emerging recognized need for automation in the form of "Practical Mobility" industrial solutions. Dean L.
