Secondly, these mobile computers feature scan engines that make decoding barcode data in your back-end system as simple as a single, comfortable trigger pull on the front lines. We want to ensure workers can stay productive, whether they spend their days replenishing supply lines, managing inventory, loading shipping containers, delivering parcels, reading meters or installing and repairing equipment. We also want to ensure that they can read dirty, distant, faded or damaged barcodes without issue.
Scans aren’t the only way workers need to capture data, though. There are strong (split) preferences between key-based and touchscreen inputs. If you’re trying to keep up with increased demand, the last thing you want is to slow down a worker by giving them a mobile computer that doesn’t suit his or her work style or your productivity expectations. The optional 13MP rear camera gives workers a way to capture quality images for proof of condition for receiving, reverse logistics returned materials or package delivery verification. And the flexible keypad and touchscreen options (which, I realize I’ve already spoken about multiple times) will eliminate steep learning curves during the initial deployment period. In other words, the easy-to-learn Android MC2700 and MC2200 get your workers up and running quickly while being flexible enough to adapt to whatever future applications and processes you implement.
Thirdly, the MC2700 and MC2200 are designed to adapt to all of your workflows. In fact, either one can serve as the sole mobility platform for your entire business if you need (or want) it to be. That means the charging cradles can be shared by all. Your backroom will stay clean and organized, even as you add more devices and chargers to your fleet. Also, workers can swap out batteries on the go and carry on with their tasks to avoid bottlenecks. Warm swap allows the replacement of batteries without powering down the device or interrupting your working session.
Finally, I’d like to emphasize that these aren’t your typical off-the-shelf devices, either. They can be fully managed, secured and supported by Zebra OneCare™ support services and the enterprise-grade Mobility DNA software suite options. In turn, the back-office burden and IT backlog can be seamlessly reduced, if not completely eliminated.
Yes, You Can Afford a Mobility Solution Such as This One
As you can see, the MC2700 and MC2200 mobile computers are not lacking in features or functionality. And they really aren't as expensive as you may think. Many believe that only large enterprises can afford professional-tier rugged mobile computers that universal usability and therefore dismiss them as options. Too often, smaller companies view mobility (in general) as unaffordable and, therefore, unattainable. Our minds are hard-wired to think of feature-rich devices as being costly because they are of better quality or more beautifully designed. That is, of course, not always the case. The MC2200 and MC2700 are affordable without compromising features.
You no longer need to buy and manage different devices for the varying needs of each worker or workflow. Nor do you have to deploy different devices to support your wide-ranging legacy key-based and modern touch UI applications. The general-purpose MC2700 and MC2200 can support them all – and scale as needed to support whatever business needs may emerge in the coming years.
This makes mobility solution implementation, user onboarding and device management amazingly easy and the long-term value of today’s investment exponentially higher than what you would see from purpose-built workflow/worker-specific device platforms. Not to mention, the MC2700 and MC2200 both come with a host of software and support tools from Zebra’s Mobility DNA suite, which will enable your small to mid-sized business to make significant changes to your mobile workflows without needing a lot of IT support or cash.
Even if you’re super resourceful, it doesn’t benefit you to spend weeks or months trying to get your mobility solution online and optimized only to have to start all over a year or two down the road. And you certainly don’t want to have to overhaul your back-end systems just to improve workflow efficiency, worker productivity and data accuracy.
So, if you want or need a rugged, versatile, secure and cost-effective modern Android computing solution that will deliver immediate task efficiency and accuracy benefits out-of-the-box, let’s connect to talk more about how the MC2700 or MC2200 can support your business.
