ID Logistics increases productivity and improves comfort for its operators with WT6000 and TC8000 mobile devices
PARIS – March 5, 2018 – Zebra Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: ZBRA), the market leader in rugged mobile computers, barcode scanners and barcode printers enhanced with software and services to enable real-time enterprise visibility, announced that its TC8000, WT6000 mobile and ET50 tablet computers have been chosen by ID Logistics, an international group working in contractual logistics, to streamline and modernize the logistics chain at its facilities in Les Mureaux and Berre-l’Etang, France.
ID Logistics cited an increase in productivity, improved user-experience and optimized real-time visibility for operators as the primary factors underlying its decision to initiate an upgrade to the operational management of its warehouses.
- Operators at the ID Logistics Les Mureaux facility, near Paris, now use TC8000 Android™ mobile computers. These ergonomic devices minimize muscular strain through an innovative design which reduces the need to tilt and verify while scanning stock. Their intuitive form factor and interface also reduce training time and speed up data collection by lowering error rates.
- The facility at Berre-l’Etang, near Marseilles, has deployed Zebra’s WT6000 wearable terminals, designed to improve the productivity and efficiency of the mobile workers within its warehouses. This latest generation terminal is providing operators increased comfort through a new fastening system, a 27% reduction in weight and a 36% reduction in bulk, as compared to previous models.
- In addition, ID Logistics’ operators are equipped with ET50 tablet computers which combine the best of consumer-styling with the enterprise-class features necessary to increase workforce productivity including barcode scanning, data entry and a rugged frame for durability.
- A powerful, enterprise-ready Android operating system (OS) on the TC8000, the WT6000 and the new ET5O tablet allows ID Logistics to explore the development of new features while providing a familiar, clear and modern interface for operators.
