HIAWATHA, Iowa – April 18, 2011 – In 2010 MobileDemand, a leading provider of Rugged Tablet PCs, outpaced all its competitors in year-on-year growth by nearly tripling revenue over 2009.
“We had an amazing year in 2010,” says MobileDemand President Matt Miller. “The introduction of our xTablet T7000 was extremely successful, helping us better serve our core markets as well as expand into new verticals. Our latest product, the xTablet C1200 Convertible Tablet PC will fill additional niches,” Miller continues.
To address its rapid growth MobileDemand added several new positions last year and plans to hire additional staff in 2011. “We added sales, marketing and customer service personnel last year. This year we plan to add operations, accounting, engineering and product marketing positions. As a result, we outgrew our office space and have moved to a new facility,” Miller says.
The new MobileDemand headquarter office is on the first level of the Tec•Center located at 1501 Boyson Square Drive, Suite 101, Hiawatha, Iowa 52233. This state-of-the-art facility houses sales, marketing, operations, accounting, engineering, customer service, testing, and logistics. Although there is enough space to accommodate some additional growth Miller has begun talks about future expansion to the second floor.

Today the company’s rugged Tablet PC computers are used by mobile workers in virtually every industry including food and beverage distribution, agriculture, manufacturing, warehousing, field service, hospitality, retail, transportation, military and public sector. The company has built its reputation on a unique capability to develop peripherals and accessories for the tablet computers that make mobile workers more productive.
