Motorola Solutions’ New Workabout Pro 4 Mobile Computer: Equipped for Today, Adaptable for Tomorrow

WAP4 fieldservicesOn March 17, Motorola Solutions, Inc. introduced the Workabout Pro 4 rugged mobile computer, one of the industry’s most modular products that enables businesses to customize the device to meet their mobile workers’ specific needs. The ergonomic Workabout Pro 4 is the only mobile computer with modules capable of reading low frequency (LF), high frequency (HF) and ultra high frequency (UHF) RFID tags. Built for manufacturing, transportation and logistics, warehousing, field service and government environments, it is ideal for voice picking, proof of delivery, vehicle maintenance and remote expert solutions that can help improve productivity and customer service. It provides the flexibility needed to meet ever-changing business needs.

This next generation of the Workabout Pro series offers a unique, flexible design, making it easy for businesses to upgrade almost all key features to the latest technologies by simply changing modules in their own facilities. They can choose the most appropriate data capture technology and voice-enabled applications for their workforces with new scan engine, RFID, camera, and voice modules.  Backward compatibility to existing backroom accessories and a majority of Workabout Pro 3 partner modules provides additional investment protection for customers.WAP4

According to Joe White, vice president of Enterprise Mobile Computing at Motorola Solutions, “As business needs change and mobile technologies evolve, Motorola Solutions remains committed to the Workabout Pro series with the Workabout Pro 4’s new features and improved performance. Built on the series’ modular design principles, cost-conscious companies have the flexibility to buy the features they need today and easily add those needed in the future.”

Research shows a substantial Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) benefit for companies that select rugged enterprise-grade devices for line-of-business applications. The modular architecture of the Workabout Pro 4 can further reduce TCO with the ability to upgrade features and extend its life expectancy. Motorola’s Primary Service offers easy access, fast repair, and expert support, and Mobility Lifecycle Management services are also offered to help customers optimize and manage their complex device environments. With its aggressive price point, larger display, and long-range scanning option, the Workabout Pro 4 addresses customers’ needs as a new offering between Motorola’s MC3000 and MC9000 families of mobile computers.
