Zebra’s TC8000 Provides Revolutionary Warehouse Productivity Gains

Posted March 29, 2016

The standard for mobile computers has followed the same general form factor since their inception. Essentially following the original PDT format, mobile computers may have added things like pistol grips but the scanner axis has been perpendicular to the display. With every scan you are always in a sequence of tilt-to-read the screen and tilt-to-scan motion. Though it may not seem significant, every tilt takes time and fatigues a user’s wrist.

Zebra is the only manufacturer to properly address the issue of wasted motion and needless fatigue while researching the mechanics of warehouse workflow. The TC8000’s  unique design is the fruit of this detailed investigation into improving the worker experience and their efficiency.

The TC8000 minimizes motion with an innovative scan angle that eliminates the thousands of times your workers need to tilt their device to see the screen. With the TC8000 you can always scan and view the screen at the same time. It’s also an amazing 33 percent lighter than the traditional device to help minimize fatigue.

With a large touchscreen, the user experience is similar to a smartphone that everyone is familiar with which makes the TC8000 very easy to integrate into any environment.

You may ask how much difference these differences actually make? On average, the TC8000 improves productivity by 14% per worker versus the traditional form factors. And it’s the only device on the market that simplifies it all, how your workers physically use the device and interact with your warehouse application.

Key Features

  • Superior ergonomics for superior productivity and worker comfort
  • Rugged and ready for your warehouse
  • Enterprise-class android kitkat
  • Triple-shift battery power and unsurpassed battery management
  • Capture multiple barcodes and entire forms with a single scan with SimulScan
  • Advanced touchscreen technology for flexible data input

 


Zebra’s New TC8000 Mobile Computer Revolutionizes Warehouse Operations

Posted January 15, 2016

Zebra has recently introduced the TC8000 enterprise mobile computer, a landmark innovation in warehousing technology that will drive significant gains in productivity and decrease worker fatigue. The ergonomic, lightweight TC8000 mobile computer offers an innovative design that reduces muscle effort by eliminating the need for “tilt and verify” motions warehouse workers repeatedly conduct with traditional devices. Shaving seconds off each repetitive motion saves one hour per worker per shift, increasing productivity by an average of 14 percent based on workflow.

Zebra worked with users around the globe to completely re-think, re-design and re-engineer industrial mobile computers based on deep research and human factors analysis.  The result is the new rugged Android-based TC8000 mobile computer, 33 percent lighter than traditional mobile computers and requiring less muscle effort and reduced wrist motion to help increase the productivity of warehouse workers.  It also reduces training time and makes data entry significantly faster and more accurate in challenging industrial settings.

Key Benefits of Vehicle Mount Terminals

Posted November 3, 2015

termianlsLook into any mid to large scale warehouse operation and you will see vehicle mount terminals in use to improve efficiencies across the facility. Especially in the case of forklifts, embedding a capable mobile terminal can improve productivity and reduce errors from the docks to the yard. Having access to accurate information at all time in real-time aids in every process from receiving to storing, moving around, cross docking and picking.

Key Benefits of Vehicle Mount Terminals

  • The vehicle terminal tells your driver exactly what items to pick-up
  • The driver has detailed information at all times on where to store product such as a bin or rack number and can confirm the putaway is complete
  • The terminal can track product in real time while it is being moved within your warehouse or even cross docked for immediate shipping
  • The real time accuracy of information right in the vehicle that is picking the product eliminates human error in selecting the wrong product
  • A vehicle mount computer than can immediately confirm the right product is being moved onto the right truck for shipping, eliminating human error

Five Things to Consider When Using Tablet Computers in Forklift Applications

Posted July 31, 2012

fotoWhy Tablets and Purpose Built Forklift-Mounted Computers Are Not Interchangeable

Tablet computing is one of the fastest-growing categories of consumer electronics and enterprise IT alike. The buzz is leading many businesses to explore new uses for tablet computers, and some are finding their way into evaluation trials on forklifts and other vehicle applications in the distribution center. With their large screens and available Windows operating systems, tablets can seem quite similar to the forklift-mounted computers that are widely used today. They can also be taken off the forklift and used on the floor, which some organizations find intriguing.

However, tablets should not be considered drop-in replacements for purpose-built forklift mounted terminals because there are several major differences between the product categories. If you are considering using tablet computers on forklifts, it is important to know these differences and how they may impact operations. Careful evaluation will highlight compromises in integration and everyday use.

This post reviews some of the important differences between tablets and purpose-built computers for forklifts, and presents the five key issues that must be considered when assessing tablet computers for forklift operators:

  • Is the design and mounting appropriate for a warehouse or distribution center environment?
  • How will the tablet be powered from the forklift?
  • Is the tablet compatible with data collection equipment(scanners, printers, RFID), legacy warehouse management system (WMS), fleet management solutions and other critical enterprise systems?
  • How will tablets impact user processes and productivity?
  • How much will tablets really cost?
