Devices have the ability to display in either portrait or landscape mode. Therefore as developers it should always be a consideration that your software will run by a variety of physical devices and users with different usage patterns. Some devices have physical keyboards and some devices force landscape or portrait mode. Usability must be high and therefore allowing for both orientations needs to be supported by the application.
In a lot of warehouse environments users could be using rugged PDA devices running Android or users may select using tablet devices. Tablet devices are often used on picking trolleys and also are the preferred unit for forklift drivers.
The software you decide to use for your business needs to adapt to the users's orientation. Our WMS and TMS is a browser based application and runs in both portrait and landscape orientation. We understand that clients will use a variety of devices. We have users using rugged devices such as Zebra TC 56, 57 and 52, Honeywell CT 60, CT 40, Cipherlab RS 51, 50 and Point Mobile. There are also users using tablet devices such as Samsung Galaxy Active 2.0, Windows Surface, and iPad's. With our TMS solution we have clients using phone devices such as Samsung and iPhones.
