This sleek smartphone-style device delivers everything your associates need to provide your customers with the best in service and boost associate efficiency. They can scan an item bar code to look up price, inventory availability, item location or product information; present a product comparison to help a customer with a buying decision; ring up the sale; complete a loyalty card application and even call virtually anyone in the store carrying any type of mobile device for help with a question — all without ever walking away from the customer. When it comes to keeping your store at its best, the MC40 helps associates complete price audits, markups and markdowns, replenish store shelves and more, faster than ever. With Bluetooth Smart, you get the real-time locationing visibility you need to maximize workforce productivity. And while the MC40 offers the cool consumer look you want for your customers on the outside, you get the durability, data security and centralized management you need to achieve a true enterprise-class lifecycle — and low total cost of ownership.

Real business-class durability

You get the durability that Zebra is famous for — the MC40 simply works, even if your employees drop it, bump it, use it in a dusty backroom or splash liquid on it. And Gorilla Glass improves the durability of three of the most vulnerable features — touch panel cover glass, scanner and camera exit windows.

Our most advanced scan technology

With our proprietary PRZM Intelligent Imaging technology, your workforce can expect unparalleled performance on just about any type of data imaginable — from 1D and 2D bar codes printed on paper or displayed on a mobile device to photos and fully searchable and editable documents. Even bar codes that are dirty, damaged or poorly printed are captured with laser-style speed. And the extra wide best-in-class working range and field of view, plus omni-directional scanning make bar code capture easier than ever.

Give your workers one device for voice and data with Zebra-only powerful voice solutions

Zebra’s Workforce Connect’s PTT Express turns the MC40 into a two-way radio, right out of the box. And workforce Connect Voice turns any MC40 into a mobile deskphone with robust PBX functionality.

Comprehensive and secure payment processing

The integrated magnetic stripe reader allows associates to scan a credit, gift or loyalty card. And with an encrypted head, information is never visible, helping meet PCI regulations.

Rich photographic intelligence

The high-resolution 8 MP camera allows associates to easily document the condition of an incoming shipment, a planogram, promotion compliance and more with the quick press of a button.

Android fortified for the enterprise

Zebra’s Mobility Extensions (Mx) adds new features that transform Android from a consumer-to-enterprise-class OS.

Better manage your associate workforce with Bluetooth® Smart

Support for indoor locationing solutions like Zebra’s MPact Platform allows you to monitor worker location to ensure proper staffing in every area of the store, send task lists based on location and more.

Crystal clear voice calls

A speaker with four times the loudness of popular smartphones and noise cancelling technology ensure crystal clear audio on both ends of a call. Task lists based on location and more.

User replaceable battery for guaranteed full shift availability

An average of up to 8 to 10 hours of operation on a single charge virtually eliminates downtime due to a dead battery, increasing device utilisation.
