Ze­bra Tech­nolo­gies Cor­po­ra­tion, an in­no­va­tor at the edge of the en­ter­prise with so­lu­tions and part­ners that en­able busi­nesses to gain a per­for­mance edge, to­day launched Ze­bra Mo­tionWorks Prox­im­ity. The so­lu­tion of­fers prox­im­ity sens­ing with user­level alert­ing and con­tact trac­ing to en­able em­ploy­ers to help pro­tect their em­ploy­ees’ health while in the work en­vi­ron­ment.

Govern­ments around the world have is­sued guide­lines re­quir­ing em­ploy­ers to de­velop and im­ple­ment ap­pro­pri­ate poli­cies such as, but not lim­ited to, so­cial dis­tanc­ing, con­tact trac­ing and dis­in­fec­tion. Ze­bra’s Mo­tionWork­sProx­im­ity so­lu­tion meets the re­quire­ments out­lined in the guide­lines and the needs of many en­ter­prises look­ing for a vi­able op­tion to en­hance their re­open­ing strate­gies. “To pro­tect our front-line work­ers and those re­turn­ing to our of­fices, we have been pri­or­i­tiz­ing our em­ploy­ees’ health and safety,” said Bill Burns, Chief Prod­uct and So­lu­tions Of­fi­cer, Ze­bra Tech­nolo­gies. “Teams across our com­pany rapidly de­fined, de­vel­oped and de­ployed a prox­im­ity trac­ing, alert­ing and con­tact trac­ing so­lu­tion within one of our largest dis­tri­bu­tion fa­cil­i­ties, and now it’s avail­able to help pro­tect our cus­tomers’ em­ploy­ees in man­u­fac­tur­ing and­ware­house­en­vi­ron­ments.” Ze­bra’s so­lu­tion pro­vides prox­im­ity and con­tact trac­ing in­sights, dash­boards and re­ports to em­ploy­ers as well as in­di­vid­ual prox­im­ity alerts for the em­ploy­ees. The data is tied to an em­ployee ID or anonymized user ID, al­low­ing for ac­tion­able in­sights by the em­ployer while al­low­ing for the pri­vacy of in­di­vid­u­als, un­like other pub­lic con­tact trac­ing so­lu­tions. Ac­cu­rate, au­to­mated con­tact trac­ing can help com­pa­nies quickly iden­tify ex­posed em­ploy­ees for test­ing, po­ten­tially lim­it­ing wide­spread fa­cil­ity closures. Lever­ag­ing Blue­tooth LowEn­ergy (BLE) and WiFi, the soft­ware so­lu­tion is hosted in the cloud, im­ple­mented quickly and man­aged re­motely by Ze­bra, elim­i­nat­ing on-site pro­fes­sional ser­vices. It doesn’t re­quire new in­fra­struc­ture and can be lever­aged on ex­ist­ing sup­ported Ze­bra An­droid de­vices or new de­vices avail­able in dif­fer­ent form fac­tors and price points depend­ing on cus­tomer re­quire­ments. “The ad­van­tage pro­vided by our con­tact trac­ing so­lu­tion is that it uti­lizes the de­vices front-line work­ers are al­ready us­ing to­day, min­i­miz­ing ad­di­tional cap­i­tal costs and ac­cel­er­at­ing em­ployee adop­tion,” said Burns.
