Company Spotlight: RAM Mount

Most departments spend a great deal of time looking for the perfect mobile data unit for their vehicles.  Most of them make their final decision a Panasonic Toughbook, based on the reliability and ruggedness of the units.  What often gets neglected when looking to set up mobile data units is what to mount them on.  RAM Mounts makes a high quality mount that supports a wide variety of mobile computers and comes with a lifetime warranty.

RAM stands for Round-A-Mount and got its start in 1995. Most of the product line is based on a patented design revolving around a rubber ball and socket system.  The RAM Vehicle Laptop Mount is designed for most any car, truck, van, big rig and fleet vehicle on the road. These heavy-duty steel laptop bases are custom formed to fit specific vehicle models. This provides a laptop mounting platform for any RAM Vehicle Mounting System. Using the front bench or passenger side seat rail bolts as attachment points, existing hardware in the vehicle is all that is required to secure these laptop bases. This eliminates the need to drill any holes into your vehicles for mounting.  Because of their unique ability to absorb damaging shock and vibration, RAM laptop desks are the perfect choice for securing computers and electronics of any type.

RAM offers a full-line of vehicle mounting equipment that is created for the needs of law enforcement, fire departments, emergency medical services, and even commercial businesses (such as construction or transportation).  Depending on the type of vehicle being outfitted, RAM Mounts can be acquired at a relatively low cost.  For example, the mount for a Ford Crown Victoria (the most common police vehicle) can be purchased as low as $199.99 from RAM Authorized Resellers.  Mounting options are also available for various other commercial vehicles, firetrucks, and ambulances.  For those that require more than just a laptop mount, console mounts (like the one pictured above) are an alternative option.  Console mounts give the option of a housing for in-car communications, radio racks, and even the electronic switches for the sirens of the vehicle.

The durable construction, lifetime warranty, and a price that is well below their competitors, makes RAM the ideal choice for departments that are looking to install mobile data units into their fleet.

  1. I like the idea of putting a laptop desk on a car. Noe, you don't have to worry about pending emails and other business related matters. If you are using a broadband stick, then you can use it to make calls via skype and other VOIP services while driving. However, be sure to focus more on your driving than talking.
