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 Brings Modern Wi-Fi to Moscow’s Gorky Park

Posted March 23, 2016

Motorola AP 6562 Access PointMoscow’s Gorky Park has recently deployed a wireless network solution from Zebra to enable thousands of visitors to the park to simultaneously access wireless connectivity for a first-class visitor experience. The new Wi-Fi infrastructure replaces a legacy network which was failing to meet the latest requirements across the parterre section of the Park and cope with bring-your-own-device (BYOD) demand. The new wireless network provides robust security and delivers reliable, seamless coverage of the 68.9 hectare park.

Utilizing AP6562 access points across outdoor and indoor locations in the park, Zebra WiNG architecture was installed to provide a quality Wi-Fi service based on the number of mobile clients in different areas across the park. The design support for thousands of mobile devices allows visitors to use enterprise-grade Wi-Fi at an almost unlimited speed in both 2.4 and 5 GHz bands through a distributed WiNG architecture which prevents bottlenecks or connection losses. Visitors experience seamless high-speed Wi-Fi roaming on a secure network that protects their devices and the entire network from hacking. As a result, visitors to the Gorky Park can use a variety of online resources and social media as well as high-bandwidth applications like YouTube and Skype with confidence.

In the Era of Digital Technology, the Personal Touch Still Makes a Difference

Posted January 4, 2016

The Power of Personalization: Consumers Increasingly Seek Customized Offers

It seems everyone today boasts a public profile on social networks from Facebook and Twitter to LinkedIn. And in the e-commerce space, consumers have become armchair critics, commenting on retailers, products and services via customer reviews. In turn, notions of privacy have been upended in the era of social sharing.

So it’s not surprising that most shoppers (74%), are willing to share some level of personal information with retailers, such as their age, likes, dislikes and purchasing history. As a bargain never goes out of style, those shoppers reluctant to share are swayed most by discount offers to provide their personal information. But they expect personalized product and sales offers in return.

One-size-fits-all retail promotions and blanket sale offers, like a diaper coupon emailed to a woman without children, seem woefully archaic today.

Shoppers prefer receiving personalized offers, for example, before leaving home via email rather than in the store so they can plan ahead. That’s because consumers often research products online, or “webroom,” before heading to the store to make a purchase. By contrast, once consumers are near a store or shopping its aisles, a relevant text offer is preferred, shoppers surveyed said.Retailers now make product recommendations based on shoppers’ purchasing patterns. That’s helped condition consumers to expect offers targeted directly at them.But while consumers increasingly expect retailers to be clued in to their needs with customized offers, they want to determine themselves how they get those offers. Once they’ve set the agenda, they’re open to a variety of marketing tactics.
