EC30 Enterprise Companion

The ultimate device for all of your unconnected workers

For associates without mobile voice and data, the simple act of locating a supervisor to answer a question or looking up item availability can take minutes. Service quality is reduced. And you could lose sales when impatient customers walk away. Introducing the EC30, the right-priced mobile device with the right mobile connections for today’s unconnected associates. The EC30 is specially designed for portability — it’s small, lightweight and durable. Over 18 Zebra-only innovative Mobility DNA tools take ease of use, integration, deployment and everyday management to a new level, providing unmatched functionality and value. The EC30 delivers comprehensive voice capabilities — it’s a walkie-talkie and a cordless PBX handset (optional). Data capabilities include secure text messaging and 1D/2D barcode scanning. And you can leverage your current line-of business applications by selecting and extending features to improve task and inventory management, and more. The result? A fully connected and highly productive workforce. Maximum store operational efficiency. Superior customer service. And more sales. The EC30 — the perfect companion for your unconnected workforce.

EC30, Front and Back

All of the Right Features for Your Unconnected Workers

Ultra-Portable, Pocketable and Wearable

Weighing less than four ounces and just a half-inch thin, the EC30 is easily tucked in a pocket, safely and comfortably worn on a lanyard, clipped on a uniform, worn on a holster or arm band and more.

An Advanced Easy-to-Use Display

The 3-inch color display provides just-right screen real estate to display the information associates need to perform core everyday tasks faster and more efficiently — from looking up item price and availability to replenishing inventory on the retail floor. Android provides instant familiarity. And with the EC30’s capacitive touch technology, workers can interact with applications using a finger — even with light gloves.

Push to Talk Out of the Box

Get PTT services right out of the box with Mobility DNA’s PTT Express. With the press of a button, associates can instantly reach team members to answer customer questions, notify stockroom workers to bring an item to the sales floor or contact a manager for assistance. The result? A more collaborative and responsive workforce that can better serve your customers. Since PTT Express is pre-installed and with an included 3 month trial license on every EC30, you can enable instant PTT communications with any other worker or manager carrying any PTT Express-enabled Zebra mobile device inside your facility. Want to enable advanced PTT features such as private 1-to-1 and group calls to workers in any location over WiFi networks, locationing, presence and more? With Mobility DNA’s Workforce Connect PTT Pro it’s easy — you can get this optional cloud-based subscription service up and running in as little as a day.

Compatibility Icons: Common Criteria Android Enterprise Recommended, Wi-Fi Certified

The perfect device for all your unconnected workers — the price you want, the features your workers need, the durability your business demands and the manageability IT requires.

Fully-Featured Cordless Deskphone Functionality

Enable workers anywhere in the store to answer incoming PBX calls right on the EC30 with Mobility DNA’s optional Workforce Connect Voice. And since Voice uses a Bluetooth or corded headset, callers are assured of privacy. The results? No more long wait times on hold, abandoned calls, lost customers or lost sales.

Easy and Secure Text Messaging

The optional Workforce Connect PTT Pro offers secure text messaging, providing the crucial security required in retail. Other advanced text-based features include Message of the Day, allowing managers to send important audio and video announcements to all or select groups of workers — making it easy to reach associates who don’t have company email.

Fast and Dependable Barcode Scanning

Unlike competitive devices that are voice-only, the EC30 offers an integrated 1D/2D barcode scanner so workers can scan barcodes to perform core tasks faster and more efficiently, from price checks to item lookup, time and attendance tracking and more.

Durable for All-Day, Every Day Use

Drop it on the floor. Spill water on it. Use it in a dusty backroom or out in the rain. Even clean it after use in the deli or in between shifts. The EC30 can handle it all.

Full-Shift Power

A full charge provides enough power for a full shift.1 And with Zebra’s free PowerPrecision+ battery management tools, you can easily manage battery health across your entire device pool, ensuring that associates always begin each shift with a healthy and fully-charged battery.

Dependably Superior WiFi Connections

Best-in-class WiFi technologies extend WiFi range, increase WiFi speed and strengthen WiFi connections, providing associates with constant application availability and near-instant application response times.

Easy Integration, Deployment and Management

The Power of a Single Platform for Your Entire Retail Operation

The EC30 joins Zebra’s new ultimate Android mobile device family, which includes Android mobile handheld, vehicle mount and tablet computers that all share the same Zebra Android platform.

IT support time and costs are reduced — with a common OS, processor, WiFi and Bluetooth radios and more, there’s just one platform for IT to understand and manage. And with the ultra-powerful SD660 processor and advanced memory architecture, you get the same superior performance on all your voice and data applications on all of your ultimate family devices.

Supports Your Standard Mobile Device Management System

Device management is easy with support for AirWatch and SOTI. Now you can manage your EC30 with the same Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution you use to manage your other Zebra mobile devices — unlike competitive solutions.

Supports Your Existing Line-of-Business Applications

Modify existing line-of-business applications to extend features suitable for display on the 3-inch EC30 display to improve worker productivity and store operational efficiency. The time and cost to develop task management, product lookup and other applications for the EC30 is minimized, while the value of your current line-of-business applications is maximized.

Enterprise Charging Options for Easy Backroom Management

Create a cost-effective rack-mounted backroom charging solution with the two-slot or 10-slot ShareCradle that can accommodate your EC30 and other select Zebra mobile computers and printers.
