Posted June 12, 2017

Businesses already know the move to a more mobile workforce is key to greater effectiveness and profitability. Enabling your employees with better tools lets them do more in less time and improves their general day-to-day experience.

From transportation and manufacturing to the retail front-end, many mobile applications require a means to print labels or receipts on the go. There are plenty of mobile printers on the market today but none match the performance and durability of the Zebra ZQ500.

The printers feature a patented military design that meets third-party-verified MIL-STD 810g military standards for shock, vibration and temperature exposure. The printers can withstand repeated drops to concrete from 6.6′ on multiple sides.

Designed for intuitive, simple use with a simplified user interface that reduces the amount of accidentally changed printer settings, and the large buttons increase accuracy for gloved hands and fingers the ZQ500 is made for the workplace.
