Zebra Technologies has today unveiled easy-to-deploy, cost-effective solutions to streamline retailers’ operations from front-of-store to the warehouse. The latest announcement aids high street retailers in providing the optimal customer experience and maximising their workers’ productivity.

A recent study by Retail Economics predicted that 53% of retail sales will be made through ecommerce by 2028 (up from 18% in 2019), a worrying prediction for a high street desperate for a competitive advantage over its digital rivals. Yet, while technology may appear detrimental to brick and mortar retail outlets, a successful integration of innovative tech could mean a bright future ahead for the British high street.

With this in mind, Zebra’s latest portfolio expansion now offers retail companies the following solutions:

  • SmartCountis a software and scanner solution that gives retailers a single view visibility of their physical inventories in real-time, enabling more efficient, cost-effective full-store inventory count.
  • The ultra-small, lightweightEC30 Enterprise Companion mobile computer simplifies employee communications and task management, enabling shop assistants to scan barcodes and run key business applications.
  • TheAndroid ET51/ET56 rugged tablet provides shop assistants with a familiar consumer-looking device that provides retail outlets with enhanced operations, greater efficiency and elevated shopper satisfaction.
