Motorola‘s Enterprise Mobility business has launched two new devices designed to enhance efficiency and convenience for mobile workers in specific fields to the sub-Saharan Africa market. The products represent the convergence of technologies and devices to deliver a complete package purpose-designed for demanding mobility applications.
The new CA50
The new CA50 is intended for ‘indoor’ use, while the rugged MC75 is ideal for field work, incorporating a range of features including GPS. The CA50 is a VoIP-enabled wireless scanner designed to enhance customer service, help reduce operational costs and increase worker productivity. The CA50 provides retail, healthcare and hospitality service workers with an integrated voice and data device that fills a large communications gap that is found on store floors, across hospitals and restaurants. “This device illustrates Motorola’s efforts to fuse legacy scanning technologies with new voice and wireless capabilities so that all employees are connected with the latest technology at their fingertips to better serve their customers and patients,” says Mark Kelly, country manager Motorola South Africa.
The MC75 EDA
The Motorola MC75 Enterprise Digital Assistants (EDA) is a rugged, mobile computer which delivers simultaneous voice, data, GPS navigation, and camera-based document capture, says Kelly. Based on Intel’s XScale processor and Microsoft’s Windows Mobile 6.0 operating system, the device is interoperable with existing enterprise infrastructure and provides a flexible development platform. Features include support for 3G/HSDPA, 802.11a/b/g and a 2 megapixel camera capable of capturing 1D and 2D bar codes.
