The continuous failure of the customer-grade computers for vehicle maintenance pushes technology dealers to look for more durable and advanced alternatives. Dealer technology management noticed that employing consumer-grade devices increased dealership and manufacturer expenditures by requiring them to purchase new devices frequently and lower service technician productivity.

The equipment is always at risk of being scratched and destroyed due to the complexity of the workshop environment, and regular tablet computers are not sturdy enough to adapt. Winmate industrial rugged computer solutions have been used by many of the world's largest car manufacturers to automate and simplify their manufacturing processes.
