I encountered this usage:
We can do massive training closer to the operator on a smartphone, using their own device, right now, we’re doing tests in plants, so people have boots and computers and they can test themselves.
Here, they are talking about technological improvements that could help making work easier.
I only find one meaning of boot in dictionaries regarding the technological context: The process of starting a computer and putting it into a state of readiness for operation (Oxford Dictionary). However, I think that this meaning is not referred to this context.
Do you know any other meaning of boots that could fit this context?
Some context of the source text, this is what the member says right before:
Last year, I told you about the digital learning lab we had created, the platform and that we started 30 online training modules that were accessible on computers, in English only, for M&Ps. This year, we have something accessible to everybody with an email account, around 45 000 people and this is growing daily.
This year we have about 130 digital trainings, we hope to include operators next year. We are now moving to other languages than English, though most of those in the Group and trainings are now available on iPad, computers, iPhones, without a password, people can train themselves on their mobiles.
I believe we now have an infrastructure that gives full access to 45 000 people, the goal for 2019 is for everybody to have access.
We are really ahead of the competition, we are really pushing the game ahead in terms of massive access.
