Many of us have been told, “work smarter not harder.” But heeding that advice is sometimes easier said than done! 

As one of Italy’s top food distributors, Sogegross Group is a longtime user of Zebra technology solutions, and, for many years, it did most of the heavy lifting with its fleet of printers and Android™ mobile computers. The company handled all device configurations, updates and management on a site-by-site basis across its retail stores and distribution centers. While intentions were good, this caused a lot of headaches for IT, front-line workers, and the business as a whole, including many lost devices. 

Wanting a better way to manage the device fleet, Sogegross Group leaders decided to centralize the process. But that would require the fleet management team to have comprehensive analytics capabilities for each device. When the company’s IT and data services partner shared the capabilities of Zebra’s VisibilityIQ™ Foresight software, decision-makers knew they had found the perfect solution. 

VisibilityIQ Foresight has given Sogegross Group a business intelligence tool that provides enhanced analytics on each device’s location, last updates, recent performance, and much more. The breakthrough platform also gathers live and historic data that Sogegross Group can use to catch both device and business performance problems before they impact the company’s bottom line.  And those benefits are just the tip of the iceberg!  

Read the full story to learn how VisibilityIQ Foresight’s easy-to-use reports and data are helping companies like Sogegross Group forecast future device needs – such as replacement batteries – and improve the availability of devices today.
