It’s always helpful to save money whenever you need to upgrade and replace your business technologies, but there’s probably never been a more crucial time to do so than now.
Controlling costs is top of mind for most companies right now, but so is figuring out how to emerge from an economic downturn, meet increased or resumed customer demand, and do it all despite COVID-19, social distancing restrictions, and possibly reduced staff.
While it’s tempting to cut costs by slashing technology budgets or cancelling planned upgrades, this doesn’t help the cause, and it works against operational productivity and efficiency at a time when it’s needed most.
Ideally, we need to replace aging and outdated hardware that might be holding back our workforce, slowing down business processes, and not keeping up with business needs and demands. We also need to tap into the latest advancements in mobile technologies and automation, like Android touch mobile computing and hands-free wearable devices, to help us do more with less and streamline processes.
But technology comes at a cost, and right now we need a way to keep that cost as low as possible; otherwise, a lot of businesses might ditch this year’s technology plans and needs and just try to ride out the storm.
Fortunately, our technology partners at Zebra have stepped up this year by expanding their GO Zebra Trade-in Program, which helps businesses save money on every device when they trade in aging equipment for new upgrades.
The problem covers select models of Zebra’s latest solutions, including mobile computers, industrial and mobile printers, and, now, barcode scanners. You can trade in any qualifying hardware, including non-Zebra products, and get up to $550 or more per device when you purchase new Zebra solutions.
Savings are now available on the following products:
- Handheld mobile computers
- Wearable mobile computers
- Wearable ring barcode scanners
- Vehicle-mounted mobile computers
- Rugged enterprise tablets
- Smartphone-style touch computers
- Barcode scanners
- Industrial printers
- Mobile printers
- Card printers
- Select charging stations
- Mobile printer batteries
This is great news for companies that need to upgrade their aging and underperforming devices and take advantage of the latest technological breakthroughs, without paying full price.
It’s also timely for businesses that are running non-supported Windows devices, including Windows Embedded Handheld mobile computers. Zebra’s complete portfolio of Android devices provides an ideal future pathway for the post-Windows mobile future, including a more intuitive and user-friendly interface and touch mobile computing that makes business apps and workflows as simple as tapping on a screen or swiping to enter data.
A case in point is Zebra’s new MC9300 Android industrial touch mobile computer. It has a modern touch interface, 8-core processing power, vastly greater memory, extended battery life, and advanced barcode scanning to capture everything from poorly printed barcodes to documents and signatures. It combines these features with a rugged industrial design and physical keypad to create the ultimate next-generation handheld mobile computer.
The MC9300 withstands all the punishment of industrial use, but the simplicity of its Android interface is revolutionizing mobile workflows for our customers. Workers can get more done and scan more barcodes in less time, with minimal training required.
