If there’s anyone we put our ultimate trust in, it’s our doctors.
And rightly so –your GP knows all about you: your age, your blood type, your allergies, your medical history and the medication that you take. Your records are safely stored in a database, which could be accessed by other medical professionals in an emergency situation.

Barcodes on drugs? Whatever for? They’re already labelled, aren’t they?
And barcodes on patients? It’s so impersonal. They shouldn’t be treated as though they were tins of baked beans.
And what about the medical staff scanning those barcodes? These are trained people. They shouldn’t be made to feel as though they’re reduced to operating a supermarket checkout, surely?

Increasing device use means increasing challenges for businesses. As many devices require their own unique provisioning, configuration and reporting requirements, ensuring consistency and control whilst minimizing costs and complexity can be difficult – unless you’re using Profile Manager, of course.
Profile Manager is an exciting new feature of Link-OS 2.0. It makes Zebra Link-OS printers even easier to integrate, manage and maintain, and this first release gives users the visibility and convenience of one application to manage all their Link-OS printers.

Many smart mobile devices these days include Near Field Communication (NFC) readers. Now, Zebra is adding NFC tags to its products, making it easy to pair with smart devices and also to launch apps.
For instance, our Link-OS™ Print Touch™-enabled applications use this contactless form of communication to make life easier, save customers time and reduce support costs. It’s a great example of Zebra’s Visible Value Chain in action: anyone with a smart device can effortlessly connect to their printer and then print, react and plan accordingly.
To take advantage of Link OS, just watch out for the Zebra Print Touch logo on the side of the printer’s case. This indicates the presence of a tag. Each tag is pre-recorded with information such as the model number, serial number and address information of the printer.
By using the Link-OS environment, software developers can create applications that are simple to use and provide quick access to information. With just a simple tap, Print Touch-enabled applications can pair with NFC-enabled devices and automatically launch. To see Print Touch in action, watch the short video here.
