Save Time With the Bulk Load Feature

To facilitate the submission of repair orders with multiple devices, Zebra provides an easy and fast “bulk load” feature for use within the Repair Order Portal. Use our simple template to add serial numbers and problem type for each device, then upload your file for validation.

Benefits of using the Bulk Load feature include:

  • Up to 50% time savings compared to entering devices one-by-one
  • No limit to the number of products that can be added to a repair order
  • Minimizes manual entry and repetition of data entry steps 
  • The bulk load template is available in Arabic, Chinese, Czech, Dutch, English, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Spanish, Swedish, Portuguese, Russian, Thai, and Turkish
