Orbit One is a compete system provider

In this case, Orbit One is a complete system provider and manages the entire production chain, from NPI (New Product Intro­duction), procu­rement of compo­nents and manufacturing of circuit boards and computers to final customer confi­gu­ration, delivery and after sales service. Because each order is unique, it is also a very complex product to manufacture – each order is confi­gured on the basis of the customer’s specific requi­re­ments regarding software, memory and acces­sories. 

 

About the customer

Charac­te­rised by a very high level of opera­tional relia­bility, they are designed for use in tough environ­ments where it is necessary to withstand moisture, dust, vibra­tions, electro­mag­netic fields and/or extreme tempe­ra­tures. The devices have the opera­tional relia­bility required for use in areas such as trans­por­tation, warehousing and logistics, forestry and mining, as well as military and rescue vehicles.

“Our philo­sophy is to focus on what we are best in the world at, and to work with partners who complement our expertise”

“At JLT, our mantra is “control”, and through our colla­bo­ration with Orbit One we have full insight into all flows – from procu­rement to after­market. We usually say that we have our own production because we have “control” and work as a team with Orbit One. We also have our own CFT team and our own production cell at Orbit One. This helps create the “sense of urgency” we require in certain cases. We particu­larly appre­ciate Orbit One’s trans­pa­rency and willingness to cooperate, as well as their incre­dibly short decision times. Another key factor is the knowledge that exists throughout the organi­sa­tional chain – they know exactly what they are doing, and we can definitely recommend Orbit One.”
