3 Ways Zebra’s Mobility DNA Software Suite Optimizes Android’s OS to Improve Enterprise Mobility
When it comes to enterprise mobility deployments, companies are looking for ways to simplify application management, streamline integration, and boost productivity. As Microsoft retires its own mobile operating platforms, Android has emerged as a powerful replacement for both rugged and consumer-grade mobile devices alike.
However, while Android Enterprise is a robust operating system, mission-critical mobile applications in warehouse, logistics, retail, and field service operations require a higher level of control and functionality to address security, remote device management, and the transition away from legacy Windows solutions
Zebra’s Mobility DNA is a unique software ecosystem that transforms the Android OS into a powerful platform that is enterprise-ready. The Mobility DNA suite elevates Android from mobile OS to a fully realized enterprise mobility ecosystem that can not only run critical business applications, but also enable greater productivity and streamline the transition to modern devices with minimal business disruption.
Here are four ways that Zebra’s Mobility DNA makes Android adoption easier to improve enterprise mobility.
1. Seamless Communication
With Mobility DNA, enterprise users can improve their ability to get the information they need from co-workers and customers, when they need it. The solution enables out-of-the-box push-to-talk (PTT) over WiFi with no additional infrastructure required (via the Workforce Connect tool), as well as advanced PTT via WiFi or cellular. Workforce Connect Voice can also turn a Zebra Android mobile device into a fully featured PBX desk phone.
With Mobility DNA, users gain the ability to communicate more efficiently without having to implement additional infrastructure. This makes Android adoption the smart choice—leading to improved productivity and fewer errors, as well as a leaner operating environment.
2. Improved User Productivity
Users can capture information faster and more accurately than ever before, while still leveraging existing investments in legacy solutions. Mobility DNA allows companies to migrate Terminal Emulation apps to Android quickly and easily—and allow workers the option to migrate at their own pace to modern interactive HTML interfaces using the All-Touch TE tool.
The solution provides an enhanced user experience that can be customized to meet user needs, including a soft enterprise keyboard and Swipe Assist for one-touch barcode scanning.
The improved UX coupled with a better battery design allows for longer uptime, maximum performance, enabling team members to work faster and smarter.
3. Simplified IT Management
Mobility DNA provides mobile device management features that improve enterprise mobility and require minimum effort for maximum control.
The solution provides lifetime security for Zebra Android mobile devices with LifeGuard, which provides automated OS updates, as well as security updates and patches for up to 10 years. The solution also increases mobile device visibility. Managers can know where devices are at a glance using the Device Tracker feature. Monitoring device performance allows users to decrease downtime. The PowerPrecision Console even provides alerts so that aging batteries can be retired before they affect productivity and uptime.
The StageNow module makes it easy to stage Zebra Android devices, including access to Google Mobile Services, which simplifies deployments.
Customizable home screens on the devices allow managers to keep the focus on productivity, ensuring that the devices will only be used for work by controlling which apps and features are available to mobile users. Mobility DNA also offers unmatched WiFi performance so that your devices work anywhere you need them to.
Zebra’s Mobility DNA allows companies to connect every strand of their mobility platform for a simplified, integrated solution that is easier to implement and manage and helps get the job done faster and more efficiently.
