Zebra Enhances Enterprise Mobile Computing with the TC52 and TC72

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could have the convenience of using a smartphone in your warehouse or plant? Zebra Technologies has the exact device you need. The TC52 and TC72 mobile touch computers are the ultimate enterprise-class touch computing devices. They are designed to be as intelligent as a smartphone, but rugged enough to survive harsh environments.

 

 

Powered by the Android OS

Both devices run on the Android operating system. If you still haven’t created a migration plan away from your Windows OS, now is a great time to do it.

Zebra has strengthened security features to make the Android OS enterprise-ready. On Zebra devices, all business data is private by default. You get full disk encryption, enforced security between apps, and a virtual private network. Zebra also provides patch updates.

Zebra’s Mobility Extensions (Mx) are pre-installed on each device. The Mx technology provides extra security to areas where Android is vulnerable. It locks users into one business application, enhancing productivity and prohibiting access to other business or personal apps. You also get government-grade encryption and device lock features for accessories that pose security risks like USB, Bluetooth, or NFC.

Moreover, your IT team has full control over app security, including app installation and access rights.

 

Qualcomm Chipset

Zebra upgraded the computing power for this new generation of mobile computers. The Android platform features the latest Qualcomm chipset (the Qualcomm Snapdragon™ 660 octa-core, 2.2 GHz).

The chipset supports an extensive platform for application development. You’ll get a predictable roadmap for future development which will lower the total cost of ownership. The Qualcomm chipset assures a minimum of two Android OS upgrades, so your mobile computer will not be obsolete soon after your purchase. The platform can not only run all current data-intensive and voice applications now, but also comes ready to run new applications like Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence.

 

Enterprise Functionality

The TC52 and TC72 are extremely versatile enterprise devices. The TC52 is used for transportation, field mobility, and retail. The TC72 is recommended for warehouse management, manufacturing, and retail.

No matter which of the devices you select, you can use them for many tasks:

  • Asset management
  • Delivery tracking
  • Inventory management
  • Scheduling and location-based services
  • Proof of delivery and pickup
  • Invoicing
  • Picking/putaway
  • Drive logging
  • Track and trace
  • Route optimization

 

Enterprise-Grade Features

Both mobile computers share many enterprise-grade features.  With both devices, you get advanced touchscreen technology. They have displays with a multi-touch option that works when wet or with a glove or stylus. Capture 1D and 2D barcodes fast with advanced data capture scanning capabilities. Employees gain efficiency because they have extended range and the ability to point and click to capture data. They do not have to align the scanner with the barcode to complete a successful scan.

You also get crystal clear audio and secure Wi-Fi with cellular network flexibility. Zebra’s Mobility DNA suite is included with every device. Mobility DNA is a comprehensive suite of tools for business, management, and development. The suite consists of applications, utilities, and tools you can customize. The two mobile computers have some differences. The TC52 can handle multiple 4-foot drops to tile over concrete between 14°F to 122°F and has a battery life of up to 14 hours. The TC72 can handle multiple 8-foot drops to concrete at room temperature and has a 15-hour battery life.
