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.

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.

White Paper : iOS Compatibility

Posted October 29, 2015

IOSWhat is it?

Not all barcode scanners or data capture devices are compatible with Apple iOS devices, and for those that are, a significant amount of testing and development are required to assure proper device operation. However, after a huge demand from small and medium-sized business owners to incorporate iPads, iPhones, and other Apple devices into their workforce management workflow, Apple invested extensive time and resources into certifying iOS devices with select data capture devices. Now, business owners have the ability to connect their Apple device to a data capture device via Bluetooth or a physical sled or cradle in order to conduct asset tracking, point of sale, inventory management, and other applications.

When is it coming?

iOS compatibility exists today. Many businesses ranging from small to enterprise-level are using iPads, iPhones and iPods to perform inventory management, asset tracking, and mobile point of sale activities. Hardware devices such as barcode scanners, label printers, receipt printers, cash drawers, and RFID readers are now equipped with software utilities that allow for connection to your preferred Apple device.
