TCG Provides Custom Ap and MC75’s to State Dept

TCGBarcode is happy to announce it has been selected by the State dept to supply Motorola MC75a teamed with TCG’s Data Collection program.  TCG met with State personnel, discovered the pain points and developed a solution that was the right Medicine.   Data is exported out of Remedy to the MC75a, located and verified, and then confirmed back into Remedy.  This allows the State Dept to know where their property is at any given time.  Whether it’s down in the warehouse waiting to be deployed or already in use in a cubicle. The property reporting capability is greatly improved.   http://www.tcgbarcode.com    IMG_1723[1]

Reasons for a Rugged device over a consumer-grade device:

 7. Rugged devices typically have a longer production cycle.  This means your IT/help-desk can support only 1 device over a period of years and not have to worry about supporting devices that get refreshed or phased out every few months.  It also means they can standardize on accessories such as chargers and docks.

6. Rugged devices have long lasting, replaceable batteries.  The units and their batteries are designed to last a full shift of use on a complete charge.  You won’t have to send a unit back to replace a battery, or worse, throw it away.

5. Rugged devices live up to their namesake.  They are specifically engineered to handle the demands of rugged shop-floor or route environments without needing to be repaired or serviced.

4. Rugged devices typically allow for more OS personalization. This allows your device to be configured to the optimal settings for your company’s unique needs.

3. Rugged computers include more configurable hardware options to be installed at the time of manufacture. This includes: cameras, scanners, WWAN, GPS, RFID, displays and more.

2. Rugged computers usually are available with cost-effective service contracts that also include user abuse repairs. Not just manufacturer defect contracts like with most consumer-grade devices.

1. Rugged devices typically have a must lower TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP.  Even though they generally cost more upfront, over the course of 3-5 years, the cost of purchasing, maintaining and managing a consumer-grade computer far outweighs that of a rugged computer.

 

Zebra buys MOT. Wow!!!

Zebra Technologies Corp. (ZBRA) is buying a unit of Motorola Solutions Inc. (MSI) for $3.45 billion, borrowing heavily for a bet on mobile-computing services for businesses that need to track employees and products.

Zebra plans to fund the deal with about $200 million of cash and $3.25 billion in new debt. That’s almost as much as Zebra itself is worth, based on yesterday’s closing stock price, which valued the company at about $3.4 billion.

Both companies offer bar-code scanning, radio-frequency identification and other technology that companies can use to control their inventory, whether it’s retailers stocking shelves or hospitals recording doses of medicine. Motorola also has specialized tablets and computers for various industries.
