Moving from legacy mobile OS systems in your warehouse, such as Windows mobile, has never been more appealing. Zebra Android enterprise mobile devices are the perfect device choice, leading the mobile working revolution, providing touch screen Android mobile devices with a user-friendly and familiar interface for modern warehouse systems and mobile working.
As Zebra technology partners, GSM Barcoding is helping organisations to migrate to Android in the warehouse and modernise their operations. Our incentive trade-up programme provides additional discounts on selected new Zebra Android devices when you trade up Window® devices whether they are old Zebra products or other manufacturer devices.
Drivers of warehouse modernisation
The migration to Android® in the warehouse has seen a rapid increase in adoption driven by several operational and technical factors.
Exponential growth in e-commerce, higher consumer expectations of product availability, delivery speed, and intensifying competition for labour are fundamentally changing warehouse operations. To compete in this new environment, your operations need to ramp up front-line workers fast and empower them to efficiently perform the jobs of the future.
2021 -The End of Windows Devices
Outdated and end-of-life Windows® devices running embedded legacy applications won’t empower your workers to the extent necessary — they simply were not designed to match the speed and volume of today’s on-demand economy. In contrast, modern Zebra Android touch-screen devices are designed for faster, more flexible operation and come in a wide range of rugged form factors, from handhelds and wearables to tablets and vehicle mounts.
How Android is transforming the Warehouse
With Zebra’s modern Android warehouse devices, you’ll notice four key operational improvements:
Greater order-fulfilment speed
Modern Zebra devices speed up applications with more memory and processing power. The intuitive Android user interface combined with modern touch-screen technology to facilitate 40% faster data entry. And with the Simulscan multi-barcode solution, devices can capture multiple barcodes on a label with a single scan.
Higher fulfilment accuracy
Android gives you the ability to simplify interactions with terminal emulation green-screens. You can easily add soft buttons, on-screen keypads and photos of products for fool-proof picking. Equipped with the latest in scan engine technology, workers can capture barcode data faster, from near and far distances, the first time, every time. And with bigger touch displays, orders can be filled with 60% fewer mistakes.
Your mobile devices impact worker productivity and efficiency. Zebra Android devices have a familiar, intuitive touch-screen interface and a lightweight, ergonomic design for all-day ease of use — providing a better overall user experience. Modernizing helps cut training time for both permanent and temporary workers, making the job easier and empowering them with the confidence to add real value.
Zebra Android devices are designed for continuity, with fast charging, hot-swap batteries and more reliable Wi-Fi connectivity. PowerPrecision+ analytics indicate when batteries need recharging or replacement. Mobility Extensions provide an extra layer of enterprise security and LifeGuard for Android extends security support for up to seven years — all to help prevent disruptive downtime.
