Let ScanOnline Help With Your OS Migration

A Few Reasons Why Android is Your Best Option

Apple IOS

❌ OS is available only on Apple consumer grade devices.

❌ Lacks enterprise level durability, scanning, computing and integration with enterprise IT systems.

❌ With a closed ecosystem 3rd parties can't redevelop the OS to fit specific employee workflows.

Windows Mobile

❌ If you stay with unsupported versions you face malware threats and increasing downtime.

❌ Migrating to Windows 10 or IoT means you still must rewrite apps and not all devices will accept Win10.

❌ You must consider whether Microsoft will stay in the rugged enterprise space – which has been questioned in the industry.


✅ Familiar easy to use interface for most workers.

✅ The most robust and widely accepted enterprise OS on the market.

Zebra Mobility Extensions (Mx) and Mobility DNA Solutions make Android a truly secure and capable enterprise solution.
