Zebra SB1 Smart Badge

Help every one of your associates better serve customers with the SB1 Smart Badge. A brand-new category of mobile device, the SB1 is worn around the neck, arm, or on a belt. The device allows shoppers to identify associates. It also enables associates to scan bar codes and answer customers’ questions on price or inventory, and with a task management application, workers can access their own task list and supervisors can monitor task status — all in real time. What’s the result of a smart badge? More productive associates who are ready to turn shoppers into buyers.

  • Built for sharing — no need to assign devices
    Workers can simply log in at the start of a shift to access their personal task list and messages.
  • Customizable bezel
    Pick your color and add your logo to promote your brand and enable customers to instantly identify your associates.
  • Durable — built for everyday use
    The SB1 is a true enterprise product, built to handle everyday use, including drops, spills, exposure to dust, heat and cold.
  • Easy to read — everywhere
    The three-inch E Ink® Pearl display is easy to read in virtually every lighting condition
  • Easy ‘touch’ navigation
    Finger-style navigation eliminates the need for a stylus and supports a gloved hand.
  • Your data is safe and secure
    The SB1 supports HTML5 thin client applications where the data resides on servers instead of the device, simplifying application development and eliminating the risk of data theft if the device is lost or stolen.
