Microsoft Embedded 8.1 Industry provides the full functionality and features of Windows 8.1 plus access to customization capabilities. The release of Microsoft Embedded 8.1 Industry on Dell’s Venue Pro tablets makes Dell OEM Solutions the only tier-one hardware manufacturer to deliver this embedded technology on a tablet!

    Microsoft Embedded 8.1 Industry is an exciting opportunity for vertical industries such as healthcare, retail, telecommunications, and more to create more powerful mobile line-of-business applications with greater flexibility and the enhanced lockdown capabilities function-dedicated devices require.

    Already available in many OEM devices, Microsoft Embedded 8.1 Industry provides the full functionality and all the features available in Windows 8.1 plus access to customization capabilities that include self-branding, boot-to-shell, and controlled lock-out of certain features. Furthermore, enterprise features such as DirectAccess, BrancheCache, Enterprise Sideloading, and AppLocker, empower enterprises to gain greater manageability and control over their devices and enable new scenarios.

    The release of Microsoft Embedded 8.1 Industry on Dell’s Venue Pro tablets makes Dell OEM Solutions the only tier-one hardware manufacturer to deliver this embedded technology on a tablet! With their 8” HD IPS Screen, wide-angle viewing, advanced connectivity, and other features, the inclusion of Microsoft Embedded 8.1 Industry makes the Venue Pro an unparalleled performer in terms of flexibility and versatility.

    According to Dell Global Client Solutions Marketing Manager Olivia Hughes, “As the mobility movement continues to rage on, industries such as healthcare, retail, and telecommunications are adopting mobile solutions in their day-to-day business. In healthcare where EMTs, nurses, and doctors previously used walkie-talkies and pagers to communicate, now they use tablets and smartphones to pull up medical records, life-saving information, and healthcare documents. In the retail world, those old, clunky point-of-sale systems are becoming a thing of the past. Anyone who has worked in retail will understand what a breath of fresh air it is to use a tablet for a streamlined process.”

    Hughes continues, adding, “This solution is also a great match for telecom companies that need to keep up with customer demand for business-enabled tablets. These tablets are an important part of what the telecom industry is giving to its employees in the field, along with selling to its customers. The healthcare, retail, and telecommunications industries, along with several others all require high-quality, stable, and well-engineered technology that can be built to order to meet their specific needs.”
