MPREIS Migrates to Android™ Solution for Efficient In-Store Fulfillment Management with Zebra Technologies

Touch computers with extended security, software and services optimize workflows

RATINGEN, Germany – June 2, 2020 – 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, today announced that MPREIS Warenvertriebs GmbH, an Austrian retailer, is transitioning its in-store fulfillment management system to Zebra’s Android mobility solution, improving its workflows and building smarter and more efficient operations.   

“Zebra Technologies is a leader in purpose-built Android technology for businesses, both in terms of hardware along with its supporting software and services,” said Martin Tscherner, Chief Information Officer, MPREIS. “Working in conjunction with Zebra and its PartnerConnect Premier Solution Partner unit-IT and Registered ISV Partner Modellwerkstatt, we have deployed an efficient in-store merchandise management and electronic shelf label system. We are also continually developing and enhancing our software developed by Modellwerkstatt and planning new functionality, such as our company internal instant messaging app.”

MPREIS wanted to migrate from Windows to Android mobile computers and implement an efficient warehouse-to-store fulfillment management system. The company deployed a full solution including TC56 and TC57 touch computers and LifeGuard™ for Android for extended security to provide longer lifecycle benefits.

Using Mobility DNA for enterprise application needs and the StageNow Android tool for software development and integration on Zebra devices, MPREIS can easily integrate apps developed by Modellwerkstatt. Reducing business interruptions, Zebra OneCare® services provide operational continuity.

Staff in MPREIS’ 238 stores are equipped with Zebra touch computers to access the company’s electronic shelf label (ESL) application. Used for receiving, checking item availability and managing weekly inventory controls, the TC57 touch computers give an accurate inventory overview to manage MPREIS’ out-of-stocks. This provides greater worker productivity and optimizes in-store workflow operations.

“Zebra’s mobility solution delivers faster processing efficiency and increased in-store operation productivity,” said Philipp Johannesson, Regional Sales Director, Zebra Technologies, DACH (Germany, Austria and Switzerland). “This maximizes MPREIS’ Android investment, enabling continual development of its merchandise management and ESL system to deliver total benefits of ownership.”
