Must Have Accessories

Our recommended printer, the Brother PJ-763MFi is equipped with Bluetooth and USB connectivity and is compact enough to fit just about anywhere!
Working in the field can be tough on a mobile device and when you’re making such a large investment you want to keep it in pristine condition! Here are some cases that will protect mobile devices from drops, water, and other harmful conditions.

If you’re collecting customer signatures in the field, having a stylus can be helpful! A stylus also allows techs to use touch screen devices while wearing gloves.
Keeping devices on their hip keeps them protected and easy to grab when needed. It also prevents techs from fumbling to remove a device in a bulky case from their pocket.
It’s no surprise that heavy usage will drain the battery on your devices. Make sure your company vehicles have charging cables for use when traveling between jobs. External batteries can also provide a boost in the field.
