GENILINK Awards Mobile Computing Contract to Janam

Janam’s new XT2 rugged touch computer will help ensure safety, efficiency, quality and compliance in the automotive industry

September 21, 2016

Janam Technologies LLC, a leading provider of rugged mobile computers that scan barcodes and communicate wirelessly, today announced that its XT2 Rugged Touch Computer beat 12 competitive devices from eight mobile computing companies to win a multi-year supply agreement with GENILINK, a subsidiary of SGS, the world’s leading automotive inspection, certification and testing company.

GENILINK will deploy more than 3,000 XT2 rugged mobile computers from Janam to improve its vehicle inspection processes. Playing a critical role in road safety and environmental protection, the company sought a rugged mobile solution that could provide maximum uptime, reliability and accuracy.


  • GENILINK, a subsidiary of the SGS Group’s transportation division, delivers hardware and software solutions to control centers in France and Africa. GENILINK is also a solution integrator for end-of-leasing activities, IT infrastructure audit and radar control.
  • With more than seven million vehicle tests conducted annually, GENILINK selected Janam’s XT2 to help optimize workflows and ultimately reduce the time spent on each inspection.
  • Setting a higher standard for business efficiency, GENILINK transitioned from a Microsoft® Windows® CE-based mobile computer to the Android™-powered XT2. As the only device in its class to run Android 5 Lollipop operating system, the XT2 is equipped with the latest technological advancements to help mobile workers from GENILINK perform their jobs more effectively and efficiently.
  • The XT2 easily survives 5 foot/1.5 meter drops to concrete on all sides across a wide temperature range per MIL-STD 810G standards and is sealed to IP67 standards to provide protection from dust and survive immersion in up to 3 feet of water.

Robert Hurt, General Manager, EMEA, Janam Technologies
“We are thrilled by our partnership with GENILINK and look forward to seeing their customers’ operational performance skyrocket after deploying Janam’s XT2 touch computers throughout Europe and Africa.”

Jeremie Becker, Procurement Manager, GENILINK
“After conducting a thorough review of 12 consumer- and enterprise-class devices from the leading vendors in the data capture industry, we felt that Janam’s XT2 was the clear winner. In addition, in terms of customer care and operating philosophy, Janam was the ideal partner for GENILINK. More than 4,000 GENILINK operators will be using Janam’s XT2 rugged mobile computer to ensure vehicle compliance to safety standards in France and the Ivory Coast.”
