France Boissons Digitizes its Delivery Business with Zebra Technologies

TC56 touch computers paired with Zebra printers enhance customer satisfaction

LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill. – August 27, 2018 – Efficient, timely deliveries are required by a growing on-demand economy. Zebra Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: ZBRA), an innovator at the edge of the enterprise with solutions and partners that enable businesses to gain a performance edge, announced that France Boissons has implemented technology to stay ahead of the competition. France’s leader in the distribution of drinks and services to the consumer out-of-home (CHD) food service sector, France Boissons now provides its delivery drivers with TC56 touch computers to assist in bolstering performance and customer service.

A Zebra customer since 2013, France Boissons was seeking a rugged touch computer using Android™ with superior battery performance and an integrated navigation system. Thanks to its industrial design, business-level data security and consumer-grade smartphone features like 4G LTE connectivity, the TC56 touch computer met the required criteria. France Boissons chose the TC56 to assist its 900 delivery drivers and 73 distribution centers operating throughout France.

“We were enthusiastic about the idea of providing our employees with the new TC56. We are already very happy with its performance as it’s helping to increase productivity and improve our working environment,” said Pierre Systermans, Logistics Project Manager, France Boissons. “We take pride in being on the cutting edge of innovation, and Zebra Technologies is playing a major part in this regard.”

The TC56 touch computer uses up to 15 percent less power than France Boissons’ previous devices. Its applications can also run up to five times faster, enabling the TC56 to fully meet the needs of transportation and logistics, a sector that demands responsiveness and endurance. The solution also pairs well with the ZQ500 mobile printer, another product used by France Boissons. Zebra mobile printers are tough, even in challenging environments and are used in the delivery drivers’ daily tasks, such as printing delivery slips and optimizing overall productivity.

“Our success with France Boissons stems from the mutual trust we have been nurturing for over five years,” said Virgile Bourdelin, Sales Director for France, Transport & Logistics, Zebra Technologies. “We are proud to provide France Boissons and all of our customers with the best innovation in mobile computers and printers to empower their front lines to be faster and smarter.”
