Reduce Shipping Chargebacks with Integrated RFID Portal Solutions from Zebra and Barcodes

When your inventory is hard to identify or locate in the warehouse, it leads to incomplete, inaccurate, or delayed shipments. The annual cost of chargebacks due to mistakes in shipping is estimated to be $36B.

Reading RFID tags as they pass through portals or chokepoints is quickly becoming the most efficient and effective means of automating inventory and asset tracking.

Easy to implement and support, Zebra’s new Integrated RFID Portals easily validate shipments as they are loaded on or unloaded from trucks.

During this webinar, we discuss the following ways in which RFID increases shipment accuracy:

  • Why RFID drastically reduces the need for human intervention and manual scanning
  • What steps companies take to reach a 25% efficiency increase with RFID
  • How Zebra’s new Integrated RFID Portals monitor inventory, control costs, and optimize workflows

RFID is a key technology platform that we would love to discuss in more depth with you. In a landscape with lingering supply chain delays and rising labor costs, RFID is one of the most cost effective, scalable, and reliable solutions available today.

Why Organizations Should Love Refurbished Mobile Devices

Posted February 14, 2022

Happy Valentine’s Day! What a great opportunity to appreciate refurbished mobile devices.

Barcode scanners and mobile computers that have been refurbished are generally the most cost-effective option for your company’s hardware requirements.

Also known as Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) devices, there are many misconceptions and concerns about what refurbished means, and how it differs from new or used equipment.

Refurbished mobile equipment can provide a wide range of benefits for your business – let’s dig in to why.

As-Is and Used Mobile Equipment are Not the Same as Certified Pre-Owned

Electronics that have been used and put on the market for sale in their existing state are known as “used” or “as-is” devices.

Devices that have been utilized for 10 months or ten years will remain in the same condition as they were on the last day they were used, regardless of how long they’ve been discontinued by the manufacturer.

Mobile equipment that has been previously owned but has been professionally refurbished or certified pre-owned must be in “good-as-new” condition before it can be put on the market.

Consider the car sector while contemplating whether to purchase refurbished or used mobile equipment. There’s a big difference between a used car and a certified pre-owned car, just as there is with mobile gadgets. CPO cars are guaranteed to be in excellent condition after a thorough inspection by the manufacturer or dealer. Used cars – not always the case.

These steps ensure that you’re getting a high-quality product that’s ready to use out of the box.

Examples of Used Mobile Equipment and Scanners

The MC9000 series was launched in 2003 as the supply chain industry’s ruggedized computer solution. For the past 15 years and millions of devices later, these devices have been frequently utilized for their reliability in an ever-expanding range of sectors.

As they are widely used and no longer produced or maintained by the OEM, mobile devices like the MC9091, MC9097, and MC9190-G are frequently sought on the reseller market.

Companies typically opt to buy professionally reconditioned gadgets from trustworthy vendors and sign repair contracts to guarantee that they are protected rather than upgrade and maintain these devices themselves.

When to Consider Refurbished Mobile Devices

Your strategic IT initiatives may require the use of the most up-to-date technologies. Refurbished mobile equipment, on the other hand, makes greater commercial sense in many situations. Things to consider:

Cost Savings

It’s a no-brainer that used gear may save you up to half the price of new equipment. Businesses wishing to grow their operations while maintaining continuity might consider purchasing used mobile equipment.

In turn, pre-owned mobile computers offer the same level of performance for far less money and a lot less hassle than buying new.

Replace or Buy More of What You Already Have

OEMs often stop making gadgets after a specific number of years to roll out new models. That doesn’t mean brand new hardware makes sense for your business. 

If your workforce is accustomed to a specific mobile computer, it’s common for them to want to keep the legacy device working as long as possible.

No Need for Additional Proof of Concept

Not only do you get the precise setup and image you’re used to with refurbished devices; it’s sometimes the only way to get it at all.

Companies who source Certified Pre-Owned equipment from Barcodes, Inc. have the peace of mind that their technology will work just as well as when they purchased new.

Shorter Lead Times and Better Device Availability

With new mobile devices, we’re seeing lead times of 8 to 12 weeks (and much longer in some cases). This is not helpful to organizations who need to get more products out the door today.

CPO hardware, such as mobile computers, printers, scanners, and vehicle mount computers are sometimes much faster to source.

With that said, the refurb device market is extremely dynamic, with availability fluctuating all the time. If you’re on a tight timeline, Barcodes can find you what you need for much faster and cheaper.

Reasons to Source CPO Hardware from Barcodes, Inc.

We’ve all heard horror stories of used devices being dead on arrival. The sale is already complete, and the victim is stuck with a box of expensive paper weights to sit in the warehouse.

As your unique needs are assessed, we’ll propose the most appropriate refurbished technology to suit those needs. CPO from Barcodes, Inc. includes the following:

  • 90-day warranty on all refurbished mobile devices
  • Thorough repair and inspection process
  • Function testing on crucial components before sending each piece of equipment through a seven-step equipment repair procedure
  • Inspected by highly skilled professionals who repair or replace any broken parts and take preventive measures to address any prevalent concerns
  • Once fully restored and cleaned, the equipment will look and perform good as new
  • Devices are setup, staged, kitted, and loaded with the appropriate software when these inspections and repairs are completed

For faster turnaround, quality hardware, and fair pricing, talk to the mobile equipment experts at Barcodes for all your refurbished equipment needs.

Keeping Mobile Device Deployments in Scope, Within Budget and On Time

Thursday, February 3rd, 2:00 PM – 2:30 PM ET

Presented By:

Marco Nielsen, Vice President of Endpoint Solutions (Barcodes, Inc.)

Deploying mobile devices to employees is more than purchasing devices and delivering cellular connectivity. It can free your business from desktop-bound apps and manual, paper-based workflows. But it stretches IT resources to support devices and apps throughout their life cycle.

Service providers can remove the risks of mobile device deployments. Working in tight coordination with the client, they provide well-documented project plans and rationalized timelines, allowing internal resources to focus on user experience and business value return.

During this webinar, we provide an overview of:

  • Challenges of mobile device deployments and the risks of compromising security
  • Support of provisioning services who provide devices that work right out of the box
  • Tips to optimize mobile device deployments and support afterwards
