Make the Move to a Modern Warehouse

Whether you’re picking, packing, or receiving packages and goods working throughout the warehouse floor, you’re going to require the vital equipment devices necessary for performing your job and completing your tasks. Normal legacy devices with Windows® operating systems were developed before the great e-commerce revolution, so this line of barcode scanners and the latter are unable to fulfil today’s needs and overcome the security risks that follow.

Warehouse employees will often suffer from less intuitive devices, where a simple attempt at a battery change prompts a cold reboot, which exhibits lost productivity. Ultimately when using legacy mobile devices, there are also a lack of replacement parts due to how old these devices are registering at.

To compete in a new warehouse environment in which e-commerce has raised delivery speed expectations, you need to quickly train front-line orders more efficiently. Outdated Windows® devices running green-screen applications aren’t designed to match the speed and volume of today’s on-demand economy. In contrast, Zebra Android Touch Screen Devices are designed for faster, more flexible operation that improves warehouse performance across the board.

Both the Zebra for Android WT6000 and the MC9300 are equipped with best ergonomics and scan range to fit perfectly at the top of totem pole when it comes to performance throughout the warehouse floor. Zebra’s mobile devices promote a sense of accelerated e-commerce fulfilment amongst employees, along with the motivation to complete tasks simply. Their modern Android operating systems are built for today’s on-demand economy and offer up to seven years of security support, making them the best choice for daily workflow operations.

On a high note, with Zebra’s new and improved Android operating systems, workers have recorded simple data entry tasks can be completed 40% than before, and 60% fewer errors have been found with the help of the touch screen’s functionality. Devices are fast-charging and the battery situation is never difficult for on-the-go employees. Inventory tracking and accuracy has been noted to be way more efficient for every position on the floor and parts are readily available if they are seeking replacement.
