SYDNEY – April 21, 2016 – Wavelink today announced the release of Velocity version 1.2, bringing support for web applications and a new set of features to the mobile application platform that is transforming warehouse productivity.

Building on Wavelink’s existing Velocity platform, the new version extends the platform beyond terminal emulation modernisation and provides a viable way to optimise legacy web applications for the new generation of Android mobile device hardware. As a result, warehouses are able to upgrade from older devices and fully leverage the touchscreen experience offered by today’s growing selection of Android mobile computers.

“By adding web to the platform, we are empowering our customers to take full advantage of the latest mobile technologies to work smarter and faster,” said Steve Bemis, vice president, mobile productivity at Wavelink. “Velocity is a go-forward platform that was built to provide fast, reliable productivity-driving applications to mobile, so adding browser capabilities was a natural next step.”

In addition to web support, this release delivers a number of new features, including the support of web host applications and non-US locales, and the addition of Javascript scripting.

Some of the ways Velocity is changing warehouse operations include:

- Improving Workflows to Maximise User Productivity. The Wavelink Velocity console’s advanced scripting capabilities let users optimise task workflows, helping workers be more productive. They also allow users to parse barcoded data into fields, highlight important information on the fly, and customise audible tones for alerts, errors and more.

- Mobilise Workers Faster. With CSS inserts, users can reformat screens easily for mobile access. Customers can take web application screens previously used for desktop and deliver them to mobile workers in a clear, mobile-optimised format.

- Simple Deployment. Migrating web apps to the Velocity platform is simple. Similar to modernising terminal emulation, Velocity implementations for web applications consist of the mobile app and administrative console, so there’s no need for middleware between mobile devices and the host.

- Easy Migration of Legacy Mobile Web Apps. Velocity is the pathway to bring existing Wavelink Industrial Browser applications to touchscreen devices and the Android operating system.
