Zebra Workstation Connect allows employees in the field to easily turn their Zebra mobile computers and tablets into workstations and point-of-sale (POS) stations. Employees simply dock their Zebra mobile device into a compatible Connect Cradle and instantly access applications on a large screen. Need to be on the move? Easily switch back to mobile mode by undocking the device. Workstation Connect is supported by TC5X Series Mobile Computers and ET4x Tablets.


Person Using Computer


Expanding workstations and accessing applications on a large screen increases worker productivity and improves customer service. As discussed in SOTI’s A Defining Year: The State of Mobility Report , 80% of business leaders say employees are more engaged when they have the right technology. The larger screen enables workers to have more functionality when completing complex tasks such as data entry, navigating through information-heavy applications or interacting with multiple applications simultaneously.


These types of tasks exist in various industries in the form of employee training, assisted selling, POS for returns, schedule creation and inventory management. All these tasks play an important role in business success, and it is important for organizations to have confidence in the available support options so employees can get back to work quickly if devices experience issues. Having this confidence encourages organizations to implement more of these workstations and POS stations, increasing worker efficiency and improving the customer experience. Organizations demand that business-critical mobile devices are properly managed and troubleshooting is quick and efficient.


The easiest way to troubleshoot devices in the field is for technicians to remote control the device in real-time and solve the issues as if the device were in their hands. As workers dock their Zebra devices into a larger screen, it is important for technicians to be able to remote control into that larger screen to resolve issues faster and reduce downtime.
