Staff Communications

The first step toward a smarter, enabled associate is fast, flexible communication

Connect associates in your stores and workers in your distribution centers with integrated voice and data across devices and networks with Zebra’s Workforce Connect software. Coordinated activity – oriented around real-time information – leads to efficient in-store operations and fulfilment.

Tasks, work orders, text messages, and calls can be initiated, routed and escalated to help you get the most out of your staff. And, with every associate connected to each other and real-time information, they can make better decisions to respond to customer needs and improve the shopper experience.


To keep store operations running effectively, managers need to coordinate associates’ work in real time. They also need access to business systems, such as purchasing and inventory, and to voicemail and email. Without this, managers must spend much of the day tethered to a desk rather than on the floor, supervising associates and helping shoppers.

When a lack of integrated systems prevents store staff and distribution center interaction in real time, customer service issues take longer to resolve and sales are compromised.


Our Staff Communications solution empowered by Zebra’s Workforce Connect software lets managers, associates and warehouse workers communicate clearly and reliably, and access applications with the device best suited to their job function.

With handheld computers in the store and wearable devices in the warehouse, the entire team can share information for better decisions and respond to changing conditions and evolving priorities, as well as easily access apps like task management, push-to-talk and inventory look-up, to meet the needs of demanding shoppers.


  • Increase productivity with access to task and business management systems.
  • Facilitate in-store and warehouse communications for all workers, cost effectively.
  • Efficiently manage the workforce.
  • Minimize infrastructure expenses by leveraging your existing systems
  • Replace disruptive overhead paging with targeted, person-to-person communications.

SB1 Smart badge

Help every one of your associates better serve customers with the SB1 Smart Badge. A brand-new category of mobile device, the SB1 is worn around the neck, arm, or on a belt. The device allows shoppers to identify associates. It also enables associates to scan barcodes and answer customers’ questions on price or inventory, and with a task management application, workers can access their own task list and supervisors can monitor task status — all in real time. What’s the result of a smart badge? More productive associates who are ready to turn shoppers into buyers.



Work more efficiently and better serve your customers by giving your employees enterprise-class handheld computers that survive life in the field or shop floor, communicate and access information in real time – yet are every bit as refined as a consumer device.

Fewer failures mean less downtime, and most importantly, higher productivity and profitability.
