Zebra Technologies Delivers a Performance Edge to the Front Line

Zebra addresses what’s next in the on-demand economy

LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill. – July 31, 2018 – Growing customer expectations are fueling an on-demand economy and the need for compelling experiences. In response to this trend, 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, is helping companies across many industries digitize their operations and improve their performance to stay relevant and compete in today’s marketplace.

While innovation began at the core of the enterprise, today it is exploding at “the edge,” where employees make real-time decisions and interact directly with the people they serve. With expertise in technology that transforms the way work gets done, Zebra is empowering the front line to be better, faster, and smarter.

“Zebra has a rich legacy of guiding enterprises through digital transformation and arming them with the tools they need to succeed,” said Jeff Schmitz, Chief Marketing Officer, Zebra Technologies. “In today’s on-demand economy, this means ensuring front-line workers have technology that amplifies their skills, maximizes their productivity and reduces errors. Whether it’s improving efficiency on the warehouse floor or delivering a package faster, our solutions enable businesses to ‘capture their edge’ and drive digital innovation for better business outcomes.”

Together with our global ecosystem of partners, Zebra’s products, software, services, analytics, and solutions are used to intelligently connect company assets, data and people in collaborative mobile workflows. Zebra offers our customers purpose-driven design for the enterprise and data-powered environments delivered by a solution ecosystem. As a result, businesses can sense what’s happening, analyze or anticipate the implication, and make best-action decisions based on real-time guidance.

“Zebra Technologies has enabled us to improve workflow and save costs as part of our thriving click and collect offer,” said Gary O’ Connor, CTO of Doddle, which recently deployed Zebra TC20, TC51 and TC70 mobile computers across its rapidly expanding UK operations. “With this performance edge, we are planning to open 500 more locations. Using our Zebra devices, the time needed to open a new location will shorten from multiple days to several hours, resulting in IT capital expenditure savings of 50%. Zebra’s solutions at the edge are significantly aiding us in the expansion of our operations, and our teams can now serve customers even more quickly and efficiently.”
