AMREL & Canvas Offer Android Enterprise Cloud Solutions

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 13, 2015) - AMREL, the premier rugged computer supplier, and Canvas, a cloud-based software service and mobile app platform that transforms how companies collect and use business information, announce a new partnership. They will provide Android enterprise solutions for the industrial market, including evaluations, inspections, data collection, reporting, dispatching, and estimation.

"Android platforms are wildly underutilized for enterprise applications, and we are going to change that," declares Linda Talcott, AMREL's Director of Product Marketing. "Partnering with Canvas will enable us to meet industry requirements for enterprise solutions through customized mobile computing systems."

A critical element of this effort is AMREL's Flexpedient® AT80, the first truly industrial-grade rugged Android tablet.

Built for fast customization and flexibility, the AT80 has an unparalleled range of options. Connector or application devices can be quickly integrated. Logos can be added, while a wide variety of colors are available. Visit

With no programming Canvas enables businesses to replace expensive, inefficient paper forms. Utilizing the AT80 tablet, business information is easily collected, shared and integrated into existing backend systems. Canvas offers the first business-only application store of its kind. Servicing 30+ vertical markets, its 18,000+ pre-built, fully-customizable apps work on all mobile platforms. Each app can incorporate GPS, image capture, barcode scanning, electronic signatures, push notifications, as well as access to business data such as parts catalogs, price lists, and patient records.

Together AMREL and Canvas offer complete, customizable web-based Android solutions for a multitude of industrial field applications. Working in remote locations, personnel can upload completed information to a network or even work offline.

"By combining Canvas's capabilities with AMREL's rugged Android platforms, we have created a convenient, flexible and cost effective solution for a vast portion of field personnel in the industrial market," explains Ms. Talcott.

"Canvas continues to see traction for its mobile data collection platform in industrial markets such as construction, oil and gas, public safety, mining and manufacturing," says Andrew Cantle, Executive Vice President of Global Business Development at Canvas. "AMREL's rugged Android tablet is an ideal product for Canvas customers with field workers operating in challenging environments who need to collect and share information in real-time.
