The Increasing Value of VisibilityIQ Foresight to Your Business
In addition to these new Zebra scanner inventory reports, you’ll be able to access all the other Zebra mobile computer and printer health, battery inventory, and battery health and location reports needed to keep your Zebra device fleet fully accounted for and operational as part of your VisibilityIQ Foresight service. And, per our commitment to continuous innovation, we’ll add new analytics capabilities in the coming months for Zebra scanners, mobile computers, and printers.
So, if you’ve been hoping for a consolidated dashboard to monitor the health, location, utilization, and performance of your many different Zebra devices, you’ll want to check out the expanded cloud-based VisibilityIQ Foresight service now! It’s the best first step to preserving your devices’ performance, extending their lifecycle and protecting the investment you’ve made in your front-line workers and operations. (Unutilized devices will cost you far more than this service. I’ve done the math.)
Ready to Check It Out?
If you’re going to be at NRF 2023, stop by Zebra booth #3403 to see how VisibilityIQ Foresight works. If you’re not going to the show, connect with your local Zebra rep to schedule a demo. As you’ll quickly learn once you see it in action, there are only a few things you’ll need to do to get scanner data to show on the VisibilityIQ dashboard:
1. Sign up for the VisibilityIQ Foresight for Scanners service through your Zebra account manager.
2. Download and install the “Scanner IoT Connector” onto the computer to which the scanner is connected.
a. Go to zebra.com > Support and Downloads > Barcode Scanners Support.
b. Scroll down to Scanner Software and expand Developer Tools.
c. Under Scanner SDK, select the Scanner SDK for your operating system – either Windows or Linux.
d. Download the IoT Connector software for your operating system.
3. Make sure the computer is connected to the internet to allow the scanner data to transfer to the Zebra Savanna data lake.
4. Configure the http sync to load the data.
From there, VisibilityIQ will pull in the data to display on your VisibilityIQ Foresight dashboard and you're off to the races.
