Boost Productivity with Zebra Mobile Printers & Tri-State Business Systems

The world – business and otherwise – is getting increasingly mobile. Stationary is a thing of the past. Mobile devices have made their way from popular culture into business. It’s not surprising, considering the vast number of applications and benefits they offer. Mobile connectivity is a must in today’s business world. Businesses who do not comply may find themselves left behind their competition. Mobile printing is an idea whose time has come. Mobile printing allows you to print from any mobile device to a web-enabled, networked printer. And it’s by your side, all day, printing on demand when and where you need it. This is a good thing.

But mobile is only the first name in the type of printer that will make your life – and productivity – better. The second, and very important name, is rugged. When you get into industries such as Transportation, Retail, Manufacturing, Warehousing, and any market that includes mobile workers, you going to face harsh and unpredictable environments that can really beat up on your compact but productive mobile printer. That’s why you need one that can hold its own. One that can take what the harsh environments have to offer and keep on printing. One such mobile printer that gets the Tri-State Business Systems seal of approval is the Zebra ZQ500 series.


Extreme environments and bangs and bumps are no match for these lightweight, compact receipt and label printers. Zebra’s ZQ510™ and ZQ520™ printers are among the most rugged printers available. Each features a patented military design that meets third-party-verified MIL-STD 810g military standards for shock, vibrations, and temperature exposure. These printers can withstand repeated drops to concrete from up to 6.6’ on multiple sides, and when paired with the optional exoskeleton case, can withstand drops from 10’.


The greatest machine in the world is not so great if your workers can’t figure it out. Fear not! ZQ500 printers are designed for intuitive, simple use, from the first shift to the last. The simplified user interface reduces the amount of accidentally changed printer settings, and the large buttons increase accuracy for gloved hands and fingers. Intuitive media loading reduces the time employees spend changing rolls. And with its sleep mode, the printer wakes up when a job is sent and conserves battery power when not in use.


There are a host of other features that make the ZQ500 series the ideal choice for mobile printing across the board. Not the least of which is the fact that the ZQ500 printers are the first Zebra products to support a secondary Bluetooth communication channel. This innovative feature allows one channel to send print jobs to the printer while the second channel performs additional functions such as device management. Just another way to help keep your employees on task, on schedule and more productive.
