Zebra Technologies’ MotionWorks Enterprise Integrates with ServiceNow to Improve Workflow Visibility

Zebra Technologies Corporation , an innovator at the front line of business with solutions and partners that deliver a performance edge, today announced that MotionWorks Enterprise data can be integrated with the ServiceNow® Hardware Asset Management (HAM) solution. The integration will allow a broader range of transportation and logistics providers, manufacturers, retailers and healthcare organizations to track and trace their physical assets and turn that data into actionable business insights.

By leveraging real-time location capture technologies like RFID and Bluetooth® Low-Energy (BLE), the Zebra’s MotionWorks Enterprise platform collects, manages and analyzes data from tagged resources including personnel, equipment and supplies. The integration of the ServiceNow® HAM solution with MotionWorks Enterprise data will allow organizations to track and manage the lifecycle of their physical assets like vehicles, tools and equipment, and automatically capture their movement, location and state. MotionWorks Enterprise captures asset data as business workflows trigger events which are directly integrated into the ServiceNow® HAM management console for enhanced visibility of every tagged asset.

“Organizations leveraging Zebra’s MotionWorks Enterprise data and HAM Integration give a performance edge to their workers by closing the gap between their physical assets and business goals in collaborative workflows,” said Brent Brown, Vice President and General Manager of Advanced Location Technologies, Zebra Technologies. “Location solutions help businesses create smart, data-powered environments that reflect systems of reality better than traditional systems of record — empowering them to maximize the value of their workforce and optimize business processes.”

Zebra’s MotionWorks Enterprise is designed to help companies create and manage their operational workflows digitally by tracking tagged resources across an entire organization, from a single location to sites across the globe. Businesses can find Zebra’s MotionWorks Enterprise data on the Now Platform®.

“The combination of Zebra’s MotionWorks Enterprise solution with our Hardware Asset Management platform will empower users with unique and invaluable business insights to improve operational efficiency,” said German Bertot, Vice President and General Manager, ITAM, ServiceNow. “By intelligently connecting people, assets and data, Zebra and ServiceNow are helping our shared customers make better business-critical decisions.”
