Zebra's Development Services group can help you get the most out of your barcode printing and software solutions to increase throughput, and simplify printer integration:
Printer Customization: Build your own printer at the manufacturer level, or purchase and modify standard configurations. No matter what you choose, Zebra can help your company find a solution that is right for you.
Hardware: Zebra can modify the printer's appearance or functionality to help meet the unique needs of your application.
Electrical: Integration with third-party machinery or peripherals can be challenging. Let Zebra's team provide recommendations for modifications on anything from power cords to circuit boards.
Firmware: No matter your application, Zebra can customize your front panel display, user menus or communications and print output.
Kit creation: Reduce your setup and prep time by letting Zebra package your printer with all accessories in one box.
Enterprise Printing Services: Zebra can help you easily integrate your printer into enterprise solutions such as Oracle, SAP and IBM.
Software Solutions: Zebra provides many software solutions to integrate a Zebra printer into your environment:
Software Development Kit (SDK): Zebra professional services can assist in the development and integration of your smartphone, or windows mobile-based application with your Zebra printer.
Driver Customization: Zebra can deliver a solution with custom drivers that will simplify a large-scale rollout, and/or change or add functionality.
Alternative Programming Language (APL): Zebra can create a printer language application that will allow drop in replacement of competitive products.
Zebra Basic Interpreter (ZBI™) Development: Run applications, prompt users through control-panel commands and take input from scales, scanners and other peripherals without a PC or network connection.
Rapid Deployment: Ensure quick and simple setup of your Zebra printer out-of-the-box and seamless integration. Zebra can custom-configure your Zebra barcode printer's standard settings to meet the exact needs of your application.
Custom Software Applications: Whether you need a global firmware upgrade utility or choose automatically from a bank of printers to keep the production line running, Zebra can create a variety of PC- or server based software applications to fit your needs.
Implementation and Deployment: Zebra can also implement and deploy tools, including:
Font Kit Creation: As the art of brand recognition matures, the need for specialized fonts has increased. Zebra can create kits including non-standard fonts, not available on Zebra.com, which are properly licensed and converted for Zebra printers.
Wireless Markup Language (WML): Simplify printer operations with custom menu screens for your printer.
Mirror: Keep distributed printers updated with centrally located files. Zebra can create mirror-capable compatible files and assist with network setup.
