At Bar Code Data we are all about smarter ways of working, sharing these initiatives with our clients, utilising emerging technologies to do things better. Introducing the most advanced asset for managing your people and cleaning your warehouse devices in these COVID Times.

Zebra MotionWorks Proximity is a system to sense and alert frontline workers when they are too close to co-workers whilst at the same time offering contact tracing audits to quickly provide “who/what/where/ when” information to nullify cross infection & transmission.

The company’s proximity alerts, and contact tracing app are delivered via software updates on scan guns/terminals used on the shop floor. Zebra is working to certify as many of its existing Android devices as it can meaning minimal new investment in hardware is typically required.


As you prepare your business – and your people – for the new normal, you need a proven solutions leader you can trust. Keep your employees safe, prevent shutdowns and support compliance with changing regulations, this is where Bar Code Data can help.

With Bar Code Data’s help the Zebra MotionWorks Proximity application manages contact tracing and helps employees reduce risk of exposure. Our solution alerts and reminds employees to maintain social distancing proactively, while also creating a record of proximity events for reporting purposes. Our online dashboard helps you identify patterns where social distancing is not being maintained and ensure a safe working environment for all. Proximity installs remotely in a matter of days — with zero new infrastructure, it is modular so as you bring your business back to production you can scale up your operation.


Give workers the freedom to do their jobs. Turn productivity devices into safety tools with intuitive, onboard training support. Use Zebra’s Android™ mobile computers or BLE bridges with MotionWorks Proximity to securely contact trace and alert workers to reduce risk. Show workers at-a-glance that their shared device is safe to use with the CleanSlate device sanitising solution. Confirm compliance, ensure safety, the message is simple.


Zebra MotionWorks Proximity can be deployed easily in a matter of days. Quickly roll out the application to your existing supported Zebra devices, or purchase devices that are already configured and staged. This cloud-based solution is remotely installed and managed by Bar Code Data and requires no additional infrastructure investment. Zero touch. Zero hassles. Proven performance to protect your everyday heroes.


The Zebra solution includes both an on-device application and cloud-based SaaS software. The on-device application runs the sensing algorithm and logs sensed data that is sent to the cloud, and also generates user-level proximity alerts. The cloud software is readily accessible via a web-browser, is managed by Zebra and includes 24/7 monitoring and support, all GDPR compliant. This software receives sensing data and applies analytics to provide a view of current proximity events via a live dashboard, as well as a report for historical views for your management team to analyse. In the event of an exposure, our contact trace report allows your company to quickly and accurately determine potentially impacted employees, so you can notify them and take action.
