Strike and Panasonic Team Up to Fit Out Nation’s Largest Grocery Distributor


Strike, the world’s leading supplier of mobile in-vehicle mounting solutions, team up with tech giant Panasonic, to deliver an enterprise solution for the nation’s largest grocery distributor.

The Challenge

The grocery distributor required one of the toughest smartphones on the market that had an integrated barcode scanner and excellent battery life. In addition to this, they needed an enterprise-grade mounting solution that supported mission-critical activities.

Strike Alpha and Panasonic: A Firm Solution to Logistics

Panasonic, with its line of rugged devices, had everything covered to meet the customer’s needs. The Panasonic Toughbook FZ-T1 was the solution and provided the tools needed to get the job done. The FZ-T1 delivered a wide range of smartphone functionality ideal for logistics, warehouse, and transportation.

Strike designed a custom-engineered in-vehicle mounting solution that matched the enterprise quality of the Toughbook FZ-T1. The Strike Alpha car cradle was engineered to crash test standards and rugged environments. The Strike Alpha vehicle mount charged the FZ-T1 with enterprise-grade power.

The Strike Alpha mount was also equipped with an internal passive antenna that allowed the cradle to be paired with a Strike external antenna to assist with network coverage in poor signal areas.

Overall, the Panasonic FZ-T1 and Strike Alpha combination offered a prime solution for workforce mobility and provided maximum protection for the FZ-T1 handheld device.

The Result

Strike was quick to attend to the demands of the nation's largest grocery distributor and was able to successfully deploy the shipment just 5 days after placing order.
