Gemba Walk App Adds a New Partner: Kalliope, the Ultra-Resistant Industrial Digital Tablet
Bécancour, August 23, 2021 – Group Shift and Synerforce are happy to announce a new partnership with Shawinigan-based company Concept Numérique. The partnership will create added value for our Gemba Walk app.
Concept Numérique is the creator of Kalliope, the line of ultra-resistant industrial digital tablets. Kalliope tablets are designed uniquely to be used in hostile environments. Resistant to shocks, extreme temperatures and harsh conditions, they meet the needs of employees on construction sites or in factories.
Thanks to their long battery life, unparalleled robustness and affordable price, they are the ideal tool for organizations that want to increase the mobility and productivity of their employees.
These features make Kalliope the ideal tablet for the Gemba Walk app for companies with field workers in industry, defense, telecommunications or natural resources.
“As with our Gemba software, we seek out robustness. It was thus natural for Group Shift, Synerfoce and Kalliope to join forces in order to offer industry a software program and platform that are both robust and durable. This partnership surely makes our product even more competitive,” states Francis Rondeau, president of Group Shift.
