Raven Industries, Inc. RAVN recently fortified its CRX filed computer portfolio with the launch of CR12. The company’s latest model of field computer offers widespread facilities for higher field planning efficiencies.

Strengthening its product portfolio with innovation investments is a key business strategy for Raven Industries. The CR12 includes the same powerful functionality as the prior field computer model — CR7. Notably, it also comprises additional features, such as higher display and brightness. Also, it has a full-glass capacitive touchscreen and tough magnesium waterproof housing with a 12.1-inch display.

Additionally, the operating system of CR12 has fewer touches and higher efficiency, offering extraordinary data-management capabilities for users. It offers wide-ranging field planning features helping users easily define the reference and AB-lines of the field boundary. Notably, this model is compatible with remote care, RS1 and Slingshot file transfer.

Raven will roll out CR12 and discuss the company's upcoming innovation moves in this week’s International Summit, to be held at its headquarters in Middenmeer, NL.

Over the past three months, shares of this Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) company have rallied nearly 10%, as against the 2.9% loss recorded by the industry.
