With an estimated 105.4 million new mobile workers entering the American workforce by 2020 and the increasing customer expectations surrounding deliveries and online shopping has made visibility into inventory more necessary. As workers travel further from warehouses and distribution centers, it's critical to implement a better field mobility system. Less visibility often equates to impaired productivity and dissatisfied customers, hence the need for enhanced field mobility. Teaming Ascent Solutions ERP solutions on Salesforce with Zebra Technologies' exclusive line of rugged applications, maximizes visibility into your supply chain and field service. Zebra has extended its expertise into innovative applications that seamlessly integrate with Ascent Solutions, helping operational leaders streamline product management and track inventory even after it leaves the warehouse through multifunctional digital assets.

A Better Field Mobility System with Ascent Solutions, Salesforce, and Zebra Technologies
While durable enclosures and scratch-proof screens expand a device’s lifespan and your return of investment, field work often presents several new obstacles ranging from poor communication signals to irreplaceable batteries, all impacting the needed collaboration between your field workers and in-house employees. Eliminate the worry that follows field mobility’s most common concerns with applications coded to fit a cloud-based system. Consider:
- Sustained Connectivity: Powered by WorryFree WiFi, mobile devices carry sustained network connectivity, near-instant application response times, better roaming performance, and comprehensive diagnostics that surpass those collected by single-standard troubleshooting tools. Paired with Ascent Solutions, pre-installed connectivity offers better real-time information on your shipped goods while connecting field employees with the warehouse through the Cloud.
