RFID Printing and Encoding

We’re joined by Kelly Breneisen (Zebra’s Supplies Application Architect) & Michael Fein (Zebra’s Global Product Manager for RFID Printing/Encoding) to discuss the trends and market analysis of where RFID is most prevalent and how resellers can capitalize on the opportunity, as well as how this technology will continue to emerge in 2021.


Printer Security & Media

Printers are a vital component of many workplaces, from retail and hospitality to warehousing, manufacturing & healthcare, but these devices are more than just boxes for spitting out labels and receipts. They are increasingly connected to organizational infrastructure and systems and there are a multitude of options for printer media. We're joined this week by Zebra's Leo Lowy & Christine Weber to discuss. How can printers be a network security risk and how can you prevent it? What types of media are available and how does one decide what they need? Hint, we were imPRESSed by the acronym for making those decisions.


Artificial Intelligence & Analytics in Healthcare

Terms like artificial intelligence, machine learning and predictive analytics get thrown around in many industries and may still feel like high-level futuristic concepts, but they are not and they are actively improving outcomes, especially in healthcare. Matt Jordan returns to the podcast with special guest Chris Sullivan, Zebra's Global Healthcare Practice Lead, to dive into how these concepts are making a difference right now. Where is AI currently in use and how did the pandemic accelerate that? What is machine learning? Is predictive analytics as simple as putting data you already have to work?
