Do your printers have all the functionality, reliability, ease-of-use and network security you need?
Could they actually be putting your business data, productivity and growth at risk?
The way we use printers is changing, we connect more devices than ever before, and how data is parsed to them is evolving too… older printers simply can’t keep up!
Data security and compliance are major issues right now… your older network printers offer an easy ‘way-in’ for hackers and cyber-terrorists; and surprisingly, smaller businesses are targeted most frequently.
Many older printers are no longer supported by the manufacturer… so what if yours fail tomorrow? Better to plan and upgrade than end-up unable to print and waiting for a delivery.
Printer ‘populations’ often grow randomly over time… but you can replace multiple old printers with fewer, higher-performance ones: far easier and more cost-effective to manage.
These are just a few of the reasons to Trade-Up today.
Android provides the opportunity to implement a mobility strategy to solve multiple business challenges across the supply chain. OpalTec recommends Android devices from Zebra technologies for multiple applications across the supply chain whether it is the MC3300 being used for receiving deliveries, the WT6000 for picking orders, the TC75 for managing the delivery process, or the ET50 Tablets and TC51 for serving customers in store. The devices are rugged and capable so it is important that the software tools are secure and reliable too. OpalTec uses Zebra Mobility DNA to enhance the capabilities, and security of Android mobile devices and to make implementation rapid and trouble free.
Mobility DNA is the genetic code that gives Zebra mobile computers distinct enterprise capabilities. Its unique ecosystem of software transforms Android™, the world’s most popular consumer operating system, into an enterprise-ready force. Now, the pains common to other enterprise mobility platforms disappear—making operations a powerhouse of productivity, management simpler, and integration problem-free.
Organisations with mobile devices currently running applications that require a legacy Microsoft mobile operating system (Windows CE 6 or Windows Mobile/Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5) will soon face the end of support for their platform.
Mainstream support, which includes regular updates, has ended for both legacy systems, and Microsoft extended support (security fixes etc.) will end for Windows CE 6 in the first half of 2018, and for Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5 at the beginning of 2020. After these dates, organisations will be unable to obtain fixes should a vulnerability or error be found in Microsoft code.
OpalTec can provide a pain free transition to Android
Transitioning from legacy Windows platforms to Android involves writing new apps, adapting workflows and changing the mobile devices that workers use, which can prove to be a significant undertaking for any IT department.
