Warehouse Efficiency with the Zebra TC8000

Posted October 26, 2016

Zebra’s TC8000 is the ground-breaking all new warehouse mobile computer designed to deliver revolutionary productivity increases in the warehouse. In fact, on average, it saves 14% per worker versus traditional form factors. It’s like gaining an extra hour of productivity, per worker, per day.

Designed to face the user while scanning, the larger screen eliminates the need to tilt and verify each scan, increasing efficiency on every scan. It’s the only device on the market that simplifies how your workers physically use the device and interact with your warehouse application.


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.

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.

When Time is Money – It Adds Up

Posted June 2, 2015

cdfWhen choosing a mobile computer or barcode scanner, one of the last things on anybody’s mind is what kind of battery I should buy with my device. Even worse, sellers fail to explain how the battery alone can save a company on time, money and productivity.

Research shows that companies lose at least 20 minutes of productivity every time a battery is changed mid-shift. Here’s an example of what device downtime can cost:

  • 500 devices in operation
  • 500 devices x 1 battery failure each = 500 mid-shift failures per day
  • 500 mid-shift failures x 20 minutes each = 167 hours lost each day
  • 167 hours/day x $9.00/hour = $1,503.00 per day
  • $1,503.00 x 360 days = $541,080 PER YEAR in lost productivity

 

Don’t take chances with your batteries – IPT Productivity+ Series batteries run 15% – 20% longer and guarantee 100% compatibility with OEM devices including Symbol, Zebra, Motorola, Honeywell, Intermec, LXE, Datamax-O’Neil and Vocollect.
