Wake up and smell the coffee – it’s time to modernise the warehouse

Technology and logistics are moving at a phenomenal pace, yet the warehouse work culture is still stuck in the past. Compared to the modern day office and spotlight on well-being, the warehouse is archaically depressing. Granted, it’s an industrial hub and not exactly a creative ad agency, but that doesn’t mean a welcoming and stimulating environment should be curbed. The warehouse team are responsible for shifting items from A to B on behalf of global brands so it’s important they are looked after just as much as the office-based departments at logistical giants and online retailers. That next day delivery the customer has been promised is partly in the hands of the warehouse employee scanning, swiping and screen tapping for hours on end.

Warehouses are predicting a 42% increase in SKUs and 70% increase in volume of items shipped by 2020[1]. And with customers demanding ever fast delivery and flawless fulfillment the pressure is on to deliver. Temporary workers are crucial to ensuring that warehouses can cope – especially around peak times that are becoming ever more extreme.

Are you exposed to security risks? 

Security has never been a bigger priority.

As we’ve seen all too vividly of late, a cyberattack can cause major damage to reputation, customer trust, and, your bottom line. Outdated IT systems leave the door open for hackers and cyber criminals. And the mobile space could be the next target.

Enterprises need to be proactive to understand the security risk and take the appropriate proactive and defensive measures that protect your data, your devices and gives you peace of mind.

LifeGuard™ for Android™ is Zebra’s software security solution that extends the lifecycle of Zebra Android enterprise mobile computers. It adds years of OS security support to bring your devices into line with the enterprise hardware lifecycle, helping your business significantly lower total cost of ownership.
