2017: An Extraordinary Year for Glacier Computer

The past year has been an extraordinary one for Glacier Computer and we wanted to take a moment to share some thoughts about 2017 as we look forward to 2018.

Customer Focus Before All Else.

Our ongoing success is born from a commitment to helping customers maintain their competitive advantage by providing rugged mobile data collection solutions with superior value as Glacier’s “anything within reason” philosophy continues to provide the product flexibility and engineering vision to get our customers over, around, or through their technology hurdles today, tomorrow, and for years to come.

When You do Something Well Find Ways to Do It Better.

Glacier’s Kodiak set a new industry standard in 2017. This rugged Industrial computer represents over 15 years of real-world experience, engineering, and feedback from supply chain managers, forklift operators, and partners in the logistics and supply chain world. Warehouse managers want the price-point of a tablet but need a very rugged, reliable, and dedicated forklift-mounted solution. The entire KODIAK line was designed to meet that very demand. And we’re just getting started. The Android OS for Kodiak is coming in 2018.

Use Strategic Alliances to Expand the Possibilities.

Glacier is proud to be a leading partner of Xplore, Getac, MobileDemand, Janam, Handheld, Fujitsu and Zebra products. Like Glacier, they continue to provide leading-edge rugged computing products, insight, and migration strategies for the data collection marketplace. And we continue to pursue best of breed products and manufacturers that will allow our customers to leverage cutting-edge technology solutions at the best possible value.

Find New Roads to Travel.

In 2017 Glacier committed itself to creating an unmatched public-safety product roster. Getac’s F110 is an 11.6” MIL-STD-810G designed tablet with sunlight readable display and an (optional) integrated license barcode reader. The Xplore R12 offers a rugged tablet with an unmatched display and integrated barcode reader. And Fujitsu offers the most efficiently priced public safety tablet in the market today. Glacier Computer also provides Electronic Ticketing Solution that makes those roads safer.

Meet the Growing Needs of Class 1 Div 1 Environments

Many operations in the US from Oil, gas, chemical, utilities, and even construction require ruggedized, intrinsically safe equipment. Beginning in 2017 Glacier Computer was proud to offer Aegex solutions for hazardous industries. The Aegex10, a Windows 10 enterprise tablet is globally certified for use in the most hazardous locations worldwide. We also proudly sell the new Getac EX80 Class 1 Div 1 unit, an 8” solution for hazardous locations.

Expanding Our Services with Powerful Relational Client Database Software

Glacier can provide greater visibility into your manufacturing processes to help streamline operations, improve efficiencies, manage complexity and grow your business. With the purchase of DATAFASE, we are now able to add a database creation service to our offerings beyond hardware. DATAFASE can greatly simplify business process analysis, data conversions, and database development.

Growth of our Professional Sales Team

We are happy to welcome sales leaders who continually challenge the status quo and become key sources of information to our clients. John Townsend, you can call him JT,  joined GlacierComputer in 2017 and provides an array of support services and consultative selling expertise for customers looking to expand their rugged computing implementation.


Our entire team wants to express gratitude to all of you for a wonderful 2017 And we look forward to a 2018 filled with new customers, solutions, and partners.

Thank you and we wish you an incredible New Year.
