End of Windows Mobile Support

Warehouses today are facing the challenge to meet growing demands of e-commerce. This can be resolved by accuracy and an increase in fulfillment speed. Another challenge warehouses will face as of 2020: Microsoft will end its support for Windows Embedded Compact and Handheld on January 14th, 2020. This leads to a higher safety hazard and a declining performance from your older Windows devices. Therefore, it is highly recommended to adjust to these circumstances as soon as possible and switch to an up-to-date, mobile device, as software updates and technical assistance will no longer be provided for the product.

It’s time to take a step forward and migrate to Android OS

The sooner you migrate the more is the opportunity to capitalize on the modern Android OS advantages and to enable your warehouses to work more effectively and faster. Google's operating system offers many features, developer tools and apps that make it suitable for professional use in warehouses. Additionally, Android OS enables an enhanced security and has the ability to interface within a company. What are you waiting for? Migrate to Android OS and meet the growing demands of e-commerce.

The windows mobile support will end as follows:

  • January 14, 2020 - Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5
  • April 13, 2021 - Windows Embedded Compact 7

If you are using Windows Mobile (Windows Embedded Compact and/or Windows Handheld) you are inevitably affected. The life cycle of Windows Mobile lasted 10 years and comes to an end of support in 2020 and 2021. Afterwards, Microsoft will no longer provide the following services:

  • general technical support
  • bug fixing
  • security guarantee
  • updates for time zones, security, service packs and new features

If you strive for a warehouse that meets the growing demands of e-commerce, the migration to Android OS is unavoidable. This way you are able to increase your fulfilment speed and accuracy. Additionally, a migration is the only way to secure your devices in the future.
