Mobile Device Management to Track Your Mobile “Fleet”

Batteries That Ruin Vacations?

About 7-8 years ago during one of our first annual Customer Satisfaction Surveys, one of our early and loyal customers was selected for an interview which is something we do to get some more qualitative insights to go with the quantitative results we get from the online survey. At the time this customer said something that we’ve always kept in mind as challenge we knew we would always need to devote our energy to solving a bit better every year. This was well before we had even conceived of creating our Lithium battery, the PowerSwap Nucleus, and at the time every cart we sold came with a rechargeable SLA battery similar to the ones still available today. Depending upon the configuration, most users would get 6-10 hours from a single charge, and then bring the entire cart to a power source for it to get recharged, usually overnight. One of the challenges with SLA however, has always been recovering them if they are left to run down completely without being recharged. Along with the relative weight this chemistry brings to a power source, this was the most common support issue we’ve traditionally had with SLAs.

Back to the survey. When the customer was asked in our interview “what is your biggest concern about your Newcastle carts?”, he responded “Going on vacation. Because I lose sleep wondering if someone made sure they were all plugged in at the end of the day.”

How Much Do You Love Your Mobile Power? One Client Shares The Love.

In a perfect world, we would sit back and let our customers do our marketing for us. Because with a Net Promoter Score of +56, we know our products are loved and widely used by them. And recently we woke up one morning thinking perhaps that perfect world was beginning to form when we received this video from Wurth, a global retailer group based in Germany with a core business in the distribution of fasteners and tools with over 120,000 different products. 

To be considered a supplier worthy of their endorsement is truly a privilege, especially when their corporate philosophy is so direct on what they stand for:

"When it comes to quality, we make no compromise. The Würth name stands for good, solid products and process quality in addition to outstanding customer service. Being close to our customers is important to us. More than 45,000 employees in 80 countries worldwide are busy looking after the needs of our customers."

Many thanks to the team at Wurth for making our day! Now, how can we make yours?
