- Mobile Printer Designed to Hold Motorola Handheld Terminals Offers Slimmer, Lighter Profile Form Factor for Increased Productivity in the Mobile Workforce

Zebra Technologies Corporation (Nasdaq: ZBRA), a global leader in specialty printing and automatic identification solutions, today announces the new RW 420 Print Station (model RW4-PS), a printer and hand-held in one unit. The RW4-PS enhances worker productivity by delivering more efficient and effective mobile equipment management. Now workers will carry less equipment and fewer charging devices, allowing for quick end-user adoption.

The RW4-PS is designed to address the evolving business challenges of the mobile workforce by incorporating Zebra's mobile printing technology into a single, compact, lightweight and rugged unit capable of supporting the Motorola MC70 and MC75 removable handheld terminals.

"The Zebra RW 420 Print Station boosts productivity and maximises efficiencies for the supply chain of a business," said Les Dickin, Product marketing team manager EMEA, Zebra Technologies. "This new product delivers significant improvements in terms of having an integrated printer and yet is lightweight and rugged enough for mobile workers to easily carry on their work routes to visit more customers. This relieves the burden of carrying multiple devices and products or making multiple trips to the vehicle."

    Industries that benefit from Zebra's new mobile solution include:

    - Direct Store Delivery: Requires accurate and real-time invoicing and
    document production. This model can produce and manage receipts,
    invoices, pick lists, load manifests and settlement report printing.

    - Field Services: Workers in the field are tasked with increasing
    customer satisfaction by providing superior service. This can be done
    more efficiently by using the RW4-PS to print invoices, work orders,
    order verifications and spare parts inventory reports.

    - Government: Mobile printing and data collection are critical to helping
    government agencies ensure information accuracy and improve officer
    safety. The RW4-PS solution allows officers to enter and verify eCitation
    data quickly in the field, decreasing manual paperwork and clerical
    errors.

"The RW 420 Print Station illustrates the strong partnership between Motorola and Zebra," said Marco Landi, VP EMEA Channels, Motorola Enterprise Solutions. "Motorola is particularly excited that the unit supports our popular MC70 and MC75 units creating a complete solution that will help our joint customers increase their mobile worker productivity and efficiency and overall customer satisfaction."

Available in North America and Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The RW4-PS will be sold primarily through Zebra's vast network of channel partners across a range of verticals and region. For more information, please call +44(0)1628-556000 or visit http://www.emea.zebra.com/en/rwseries.
