Connect Your Retail Workforce

Growing retail competition is placing more importance on the in-store experience.  Imagine if every one of your associates could check a price or inventory, instantly reach other departments and ask managers or supervisors questions, all without leaving the customer to go in search of information.

That is your connected, efficient, productive retail workforce with the Zebra EC30 Workforce Companion, enhanced with Workforce Connect Powered by Zebra Savanna.

Connect Your Supply Chain Workforce

Warehouse workers need to accurately fulfill more orders than ever before. Imagine the number of orders that could be fulfilled if workflows were completely hands-free, without the need to pause and check the next order or make sure the correct item was selected.

You can boost your workforce productivity with Zebra Mobile Computers paired with the HD4000, which projects the information warehouse workers need, directly into their field of view.

Unconnected Retail Workers…

Associates are Isolated

Associates without mobile devices are isolated from supervisors and co-workers, without access to store data.

Inefficient Workflow

Associates may have to seek out a supervisor instead of moving directly to the next task. Supervisors in need of an associate to handle an urgent task have to take time to track one down.

Leave Customers Waiting

In order to check a price, item availability or find the answer to a question from management or another department, store associates have to walk away from your customers. 

…Can Cost Your Store Big.

Service is Too Slow

In the time it takes for your associate to find the information requested, the customer can likely find the answer using their own mobile phone. 51% of shoppers feel they are better connected than in-store associates, and 56% of retail workers agree.*

You Can Lose Sales

If your associate walks away from your customer, and they can’t find the answer, they could decide not to wait, reducing their basket size. More than half (55%) of shoppers reported that associates equipped with the latest technology provide a better in-store shopping experience.*


Productivity Suffers

The time your associates take looking for a supervisor, finding a phone or computer, or searching the backroom is time taken away from other tasks.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, many retailers were just implementing, or considering, curbside service, but with long lead times, pilot programs, and risk avoidance. That all changed, with some retailers implementing services within a matter of days and those who had implemented previously seeing a massive spike in demand. Never before have retailers have had to change focus so quickly and on such a large scale.

The EC30 can help streamline curbside service, keeping all of your staff connected while at your customer’s vehicle. They can request add-ons, new or substitute items from the staff inside, and process returns and payments all without having to walk back in to the store.

Unconnected Warehouse Workers…

Workers are Isolated

Warehouses are large, sometimes noisy places and workers are spread throughout facilities completing tasks, cutoff from other employees and supervisors.

Inefficient Workflow

Workers need to check back in with supervisors for which tasks are priority if they’re not able to directly receive real time information. 63% of warehouse leaders ranked improving individual worker or team productivity and workflow conformity as an important outcome for the next 5 years.*

Leave Customers Waiting

In order to check on the status of an order, a customer service rep or manager must find the employee working on that order or even wait until they complete they’re current task.

…Slow Down Your Supply Chain.

Fulfillment is Slow

Workers constantly pause to interact with scanners or other devices for order information, locate items and to confirm item accuracy. 60% of Warehouse Leaders reported labor efficiency and productivity among their top challenges.*


Urgent Orders are Delayed

Without being able to communicate real-time receiving information, supervisors can’t direct workers to high-priority tasks.


Documentation Causes Interruptions

If an employee has a mobile device with them, they may be able to take photo evidence to document damaged goods, but they likely cannot send those images or messages to supervisors for immediate authorization to decline, report or take an alternate action.

Want to see the HD4000 in action?  Watch the HD4000 Overview Video for a look at how it can boost task efficiency and accuracy.




FROM ZEBRA Technologies

With the first of its kind rugged HD4000 Enterprise Head-Mounted Display, you can boost task efficiency and accuracy by overlaying the most relevant contextual information over your workers’ real-time field of view. Hands and eyes are always free to focus on tasks — instead of interacting with an application on a mobile computer to obtain the same data.

The result? A more productive workforce — and a stronger bottom line.

Rugged Design that's Built to Last

The HD4000 is built to handle all-day every day drops, bumps and spills. IP67 sealing means the HD4000 is virtually impervious to dust and water. Withstands 5 ft. drops to concrete, so you can count on reliable operation. The -20˚C to 50˚C temperature range allows for use in subzero cold as well as blazing heat.

Ultra-light for All-Day Comfort

Weighing in under 1.06 oz./30 g, the HD4000 is lighter than any other enterprise wearable display on the market. It’s so light, your workers won’t notice they’re wearing it.

Clear and Bright Display

The HD4000 boasts Best-in-class headmounted display technology with unmatched color, contrast and image clarity. Focal distance is optimized for headmounted applications and can change from the right eye to left eye in seconds to minimize eye fatigue.

Safe and Hygienic

When not in use, simply flip up the display and it’s out of view. The fully adjustable frame mount accommodates prescription glasses. The hygienic design is made for sharing. It can mounts to any commercial safety glasses so you can give each worker their own pair. 

Easy to Deploy, Use and Integrate

The HD4000 pair with a Mobile Device so it does not require it’s own configuration, staging or network connection. Simply turn it on and connect to an existing, already integrated device. 

No Batteries Required

The HD4000 is powered by the device it’s connected to, making it battery-free. This eliminates weight, health concerns and the need for additional batteries to charge or manage. Using less than 1 watt to operate, there’s no need to worry about it sapping your mobile devices battery power either.

HD4000 in the Warehouse

The HD4000 connected to a TC51 Mobile Computer and paired with a bluetooth ring scanner, like the Zebra RS6000, creates a solution that frees hands and eyes to stay on task. Workers are not required to interact with the mobile computer to obtain needed information, enabling workers to complete more tasks, more accurately, in less time.

  • The next pick order
  • Directions through the warehouse to the right pick locations
  • Confirmation that the right item was selected


  • Streamline and accelerate pick and pack operations
  • Reduce user training/onboarding requirements
