Next-Generation Mobility Solutions Offer the Best in Form and Function

By Jeff Schmitz | 10/11/2018 | 10:34 AM

Intelligent enterprises are increasingly investing in platforms that can maximize workforce productivity and their return on investment (ROI) in the ever-evolving, on-demand economy. Mobility solutions are crucial for businesses to stay competitive and better support a workforce that relies on mobile technology to produce higher levels of visibility, reliability and accuracy. These devices must be functional, secure and compact for ease-of-use for today’s workers in multiple industries including retail, manufacturing, and transportation and logistics.

Designed to improve operations on the front-line of the workforce, mobile devices are ideal for a variety of uses both inside and outside of the warehouse. These devices are crucial to help in-store staff, direct store delivery (DSD) drivers, field service workers and first responders stay connected to their teams and make smart decisions in real time. Mobility solution devices also have an extensive range of benefits that can improve key day-to-day activities like inventory management, price/audit changes, click and collect, last mile delivery, DSD and route optimization.  

Zebra Technologies recently launched its TC5x and TC7x mobile touch computers, our most advanced enterprise-grade mobile computer platform along with enhanced mobility software tools. These new devices feature the latest advancements in positioning, connectivity and security to deliver superior workforce performance and customer service. With a new front-facing camera, the latest Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enhancements, and an ultra-powerful processor, this newest generation of devices enables front-line workers to communicate efficiently and maximize their productivity.

For today’s workforce, what’s on the outside of a device is as important as what’s on the inside. Warehouse employees are best served by devices that can pack a punch in terms of capabilities but are as contemporary and easy to use as their personal smartphones. Zebra’s new handheld mobile touch computers run on the Android™ operating system, which is user-friendly and can be shared freely across other product families and future generations of Android™.

Thanks to easy system integration, these devices are future-proofed and can help organizations lower their total cost of ownership in the long run. Best of all, these mobile touch computers have an ultra-rugged construction and drop-resistant features which means they are perfect for warehouse and fleet management applications. From product picking/put-away to driver logging, these devices can hold up to the most rigorous activities in and around the warehouse.

Mobility solutions have the potential to maximize workforce productivity and help enterprises rise above the competition and differentiate themselves within their markets. As businesses look for reliable, durable, and modern mobile solutions to support their front-line workers, the ever-evolving enterprise touch computing industry can provide support and create a seamless, enjoyable experience that delivers a performance edge. By investing in advanced technology like Zebra’s new mobile devices, businesses can empower their workers to do their jobs with more efficiency now and in the future.
