You put your field workforce out on the road to increase agility and give your customers the rapid response they expect. But to make sure every driver and field tech can do their jobs without delays, you need to keep them connected—with the office and each other. Avalon Integration is always on the lookout for mobility solutions that bridge the gap between the mobile workforce and the office. The new Zebra TC77 touch computer handles that task quite nicely.
When Zebra introduced the TC77 as the next generation of the best-selling TC75, our tech staff decided to examine it to understand how it would benefit our customers. We saw that this new rugged handheld has maintained the sleek look of a smartphone (which we like) but provides more memory, speed, and mobility than its predecessor— which is saying a lot because the TC75 set a new standard in mobile workforce computing.
So, what can the TC77 handheld computer do for your Mobile Workforce?
Capture delivery confirmation. Zebra enhanced the data and image capture features to allow for scanning a barcode, signature, text, checkboxes, and even an entire document in one scan, using Zebra SimulScan, which is pre-installed on the TC77.
Validate proof of condition. The new mobile computer features a 13MP camera, and this adds great value to the device. Eliminate any questions by using the high-res camera to record a detailed image of any product or package with a date stamp.
Review schematics and other detailed documents. The device delivers speeds of up to 866.7 Mbps and features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 octa-core processor. When field service techs need diagrams, manuals, and schematics on-site, the TC77 is powerful enough to rapidly download the information and even run multiple apps at once.
Videoconference with colleagues. Your mobile workforce can use the video camera to provide close-up images of equipment problems or other issues to share with co-workers and help service techs in the field with diagnostics or troubleshooting.
Communicate instantly. The Zebra TC77 also enables push-to-talk (PTT) for immediate response to questions and inquiries. PTT instantly connects co-workers and makes it easier to get answers quickly.
Reliable performance reduces downtime. Working remotely requires hardware that’s designed to handle tough environments. The TC77 has an 8-foot drop spec, withstands water, snow, ice, dirt, dust, and thousands of tumbles. The touchscreen and imager window is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass for the best prevention of scratches, cracks, and shatters. Plus, the PowerPrecision+ high-capacity battery delivers up to 15 hours on a single charge. But, if needed, the user can swap the battery without powering down the device, minimizing interruption.
Simplify route accounting. As a purpose-built, rugged industrial computer, the TC77 features the functionality of high-performance computing in a smartphone-styled handheld. Data is easily entered and retrieved from the day’s activities as well as the backend system. At the end of a shift, the worker is no longer juggling piles of paper—manifests, work orders, invoices, sales transactions, and other documents. Instead, an accurate, fully updated report can be done in a fraction of the time.
