Ze­bra Tech­nolo­gies says its new En­ter­prise­class TC8000 mo­bile com­puter’s in­no­va­tive de­sign boosts pro­duc­tiv­ity and re­duces worker fa­tigue, sav­ing an hour per worker per shift.

The er­gonomic, light­weight TC8000 mo­bile com­puter of­fers an in­no­va­tive de­sign that re­duces mus­cle ef­fort by elim­i­nat­ing the need for “tilt and ver­ify” mo­tions ware­house work­ers re­peat­edly con­duct with tra­di­tional devices. Shav­ing sec­onds off each repet­i­tive mo­tion saves one hour per worker per shift – in­creas­ing pro­duc­tiv­ity by an av­er­age of 14 per­cent based on work­flow.

Ze­bra worked with users around the globe to com­pletely re-think, re-de­sign and re-en­gi­neer in­dus­trial mo­bile com­put­ers based on deep re­search and hu­man fac­tors anal­y­sis. The re­sult is the new rugged An­droid-based TC8000 mo­bile com­puter – 33 per­cent lighter than tra­di­tional mo­bile com­put­ers and re­quir­ing less mus­cle ef­fort and re­duced wrist mo­tion to help in­crease the pro­duc­tiv­ity of ware­house work­ers. It also re­duces train­ing time and makes data en­try sig­nif­i­cantly faster and more ac­cu­rate in chal­leng­ing in­dus­trial set­tings.

Key facts

• De­signed for ware­houses, third-party lo­gis­tics, man­u­fac­tur­ing and back-of-store retail en­vi­ron­ments, the TC8000 of­fers triple-shift bat­tery power and can be used for ware­house man­age­ment, price au­dits, store re­ceiv­ing, in­ven­tory man­age­ment, voice-di­rected pick­ing ( VDP) and sup­ply-line re­plen­ish­ment ap­pli­ca­tions.

• The TC8000 au­to­mat­i­cally up­dates legacy Ter­mi­nal Em­u­la­tion (TE) “green screens” into mod­ern, graph­ics-based All-touch Ter­mi­nal Em­u­la­tion screens with­out re­quir­ing IT to mod­ify back-end sys­tems. The highly in­tu­itive user ex­pe­ri­ence on the TC8000’s large touch­screen not only re­duces the num­ber of in­ter­ac­tions re­quired to com­plete a task but also in­creases ac­cu­racy.

• The TC8000 is avail­able with Ze­bra’s most ad­vanced scan­ning en­gine and the in­dus­try’s first hands-free prox­im­ity scan­ner in a hand­held de­vice, which can be en­abled from a hip hol­ster, pre­sen­ta­tion hol­ster or a cart mount. Cou­pled with Ze­bra’s SimulS­can Doc­u­ment Cap­ture, it is now easy to cap­ture mul­ti­ple bar codes and en­tire forms with a sin­gle scan.

• Ze­bra OneCare Sup­port Ser­vice con­tracts can sig­nif­i­cantly re­duce un­fore­seen sup­port ex­penses for the TC8000 by pro­vid­ing com­pre­hen­sive cov­er­age, tech­ni­cal sup­port, soft­ware up­dates and unique de­vice di­ag­nos­tics that will de­tect WLAN con­nec­tiv­ity, mem­ory and bat­tery is­sues help­ing im­prove mo­bile worker pro­duc­tiv­ity and re­duc­ing down­time.
