Zebra Technologies brings QLn mobile printer for retail, healthcare industries
Zebra Technologies Corporation has released its new QLn mobile printer family. As per research released by VDC in 2011, the mobile worker population exceeded one billion in 2010 and with an increasingly mobile and distributed workforce, is expected to grow by over 10% over the next three years. Zebra addresses this growing workforce with the QLn, the third generation of the QL printer, Zebra's all-time best selling direct thermal mobile line.
The QLn builds off of the success of over 700,000 QL printers shipped to date by squarely addressing the primary request made by Zebra's customers: lower the cost of operation. The QLn does this by including the industry's first Ethernet connection for mobile printers. By enabling remote status collection and better device management, the printer helps reduce service time and maximizes printer uptime, delivering a greater return-on-investment.
This new feature delivers faster processing and throughput with lower power drain, giving mobile workers better quality printing and more uptime on the job. Zebra's 'smart battery' technology on the QLn displays charge and overall battery health, which minimizes downtime due to older, poor-performing batteries that don't last entire shifts.
