Smart Metering

The deployment of smart energy meters is placing more demand on field based task workers to capture asset information electrically and support PAN & WAN communication interfaces to aid the commissioning process of the HAN element within smart meter systems. We offer a range of rugged mobile computers and tablets that meet these business demands in addition to providing Windows Mobile or Android operating systems, integrated GPS for location information and push-to-talk software to improve communications between staff.

Plant Maintenance

Field Service & Repair

Maintaining plant operations and employee safety needs real asset visibility while controlling costs to your business. We can offer you the labels to tag your assets; this can be simple bar codes to complex customised multi-format labels or RFID tags. To capture this asset information electronically, we offer a range of mobile computers and rugged tablets. In addition to obtaining asset information, our mobile devices also provide mechanical sealing to meet ATEX standard and Bluetooth LE Beaconing technology to locate staff across all areas of your site.

Workforce Management & Scheduling

When deploying mobile solutions in large volumes it's important to consider the management of the devices you deploy, keeping them up to date in terms of security, operating system release and application updates. There are hidden costs in managing mobility and these can rise exponentially if you don’t have good systems in place to manage your assets.

With 30 plus years of experience Zebra has designed a complete suite of services to ensure your investment is maximised and the cost of management is minimised. Zebra’s One Care and Operational Visibility Services will keep you going 24x7x365.

We also provide a suite of tools to help our customers simplify, optimise, develop and maintain the device fleet – this is part of our DNA, so that’s what we call it Mobility DNA.

Total Cost of Mobile Device Ownership

The Total Cost of Ownership 

When considering the devices to deploy and the services required to support them through a long lifecycle it's important to consider ALL the costs associated with doing so. Through Zebra’s own research and that of trusted industry Analysts VDC and Gartner we can show the true benefit of rugged enterprise mobile solutions over consumer grade devices. Take a look, the numbers speak for themselves!
