LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill. – Aug. 29, 2017 – Zebra Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: ZBRA), the market leader in rugged mobile computers, barcode scanners and barcode printers enhanced with software and services to enable real-time enterprise visibility, announced that Bradford Airport Logistics selected Zebra’s TC70 touch computer to optimize its delivery process, increase worker productivity and improve customer satisfaction. Based in Houston, Texas, Bradford manages airport centralized receiving and distribution logistics centers globally.
With the TC70, the Bradford team eliminates manual, paper-based data entry, freeing up associates to make more deliveries and reduce errors. In fact, they save roughly four hours per day and up to 20 hours per week at its Cleveland airport location because delivery teams no longer manually enter signatures when returning from daily deliveries. Bradford managers now have proof of pick-up and delivery with electronic signature or photo record of delivery along with validation of package condition.
The TC70’s mobile operating system (OS) is based on Android™ and combined with Zebra’s Mobility DNA Suite of solutions making management simpler, integration problem-free, and simplified operations making on-boarding easy for associates. Bradford’s TC70 touch computer deployment includes its London Heathrow operations, one of the busiest airports in the world, which has strict training and deployment guidelines. Bradford rolled out 60 TC70s in a short time period because the Heathrow team quickly learned how to use the device as part of their daily responsibilities.
- Bradford Airport Logistics leadership team prefers an enterprise-class handheld computer that lets employees communicate and access information in real-time to improve workflows and enhance the customer experience.
- Zebra’s TC70 gives Bradford Airport Logistics the durability it needs in rugged airport environments with the intuitive feel of a consumer device.
- The TC70’s Android mobile OS allows seamless integration into Bradford Airport Logistics Airport Material Intelligence System (AMIS™) which gives management visibility into the delivery chain of custody.
