How One Mobile Device Can Unify All Your Workforce Communications!
Over the past 20 years, smartphones and tablets have completely transformed the way we communicate and connect with other people. With a single device, we can unify voice, text and even video communications, and many people have ditched their land lines in favor of a smartphone as their primary means of contact.
However, in busy workplaces such as warehouses or manufacturing facilities, many of us are still juggling and switching between devices and phone lines to stay connected with co-workers and collaborate on the job. Watch Workforce Connect In Action Here.
This can mean switching back-and-forth between different mobile devices, a desk phone for PBX calls, and different apps and services for push-to-talk, voice, and text communications.
Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be that way, and many companies are starting to unify their workplace communications with Zebra’s Workforce Connect. Workforce Connect is a simple mobile software suite that delivers voice calls, push-to-talk, texting and even PBX calls on a Zebra mobile computer or rugged tablet.
Using this powerful and easy-to-use solution, workers can rely on a single device to make calls, access their PBX line, instantly reach co-workers via secure text or push-to-talk, access business-critical apps, scan 1D and 2D barcodes, and access cellular and Wi-Fi networks. You can also pair Zebra’s Workforce Connect with smart badges to provide secure authentication and allow workers to tap their badge to log into business apps, access communications and scan barcodes.
It’s easy to deploy and use, is available on a wide range of Zebra smartphone-style mobile computers and tablets, and there are several available modules to fit your particular business and communication needs.
Here’s a quick overview of the different Workforce Connect modules and how they can help you unify your workforce communications with a single mobile device.
Workforce Connect PTT Express is available on select Zebra hardware and gives workers instant push-to-talk group services over an existing Wi-Fi network. The module works right out of the box and can instantly connect up to 75 workers via push-to-talk in real time.
With PTT express, you can make calls with group or private replies, and it supports up to 32 flexible talk groups and multiple operating systems. Your PTT voice communications will also be protected with enterprise-class security that supports open, WEP, and WPA-TKIP-PSK modes.
Workforce Connect Voice is a great alternative to PBX handsets and an excellent way to save money on buying PBX hardware. It eliminates desk phone dependency and delivers PBX calls and voice features on a mobile computer or tablet. This way, your workers and managers can access their PBX line on the same device they use to text, use push-to-talk, scan barcodes, and access business apps and networks.
With Workforce Connect Voice, you don’t have to be tied to a desk, and you can manage up to six different extensions visually and easily. You also get real-time visual alerts of incoming or missed calls with identification of the inbound caller.

It runs over cellular and Wi-Fi networks and allows you to reach any co-worker via one-to-one, site-to-site and group push-to-talk and texting services.
PTT Pro is compatible with select Zebra as well as consumer mobile devices, so you can even use it with users who don’t have a Zebra device, making it even easier to connect your entire workforce with a singular and secure platform.
Workforce Connect Enterprise Messaging is included in Workforce Connect PTT Pro and allows workers to securely send texts and share images over any Wi-Fi or cellular network.
