Zebra has consistently performed well in the Middle East showing noticeable growth in recent years. We work with a broad range of customers across different vertical sectors including retail, healthcare, manufacturing, government, hospitality, transport and logistics.

At Zebra, we believe that if a business can see more, they can do more. Depending on your business needs, we can offer a range of specialised asset tracking products and solutions to suit different verticals markets and business situations.

4.         Why is your company exhibiting at GITEX Technology Week?

We are very excited to showcase our new range of printing products and location solutions to businesses in the Middle East. Over the past few years, we have put in a lot of effort and investment in our innovations to make sure we keep up to date to meet the changing customer requirements.

With businesses now operating in the digital space, they require the right technology platforms and systems that support their physical assets, and allow critical data to be more readily available anywhere, any time.

Zebra can help businesses achieve their goals, by providing the systems and processes in place to meet business needs quick and easily, whether it is price change labelling in a retail store, tracking blood samples and patient details in a hospital, or ensuring the safe and timely delivery of mechanical parts during the assembly of a new vehicle.

Zebra has been exhibiting at GITEX for a number of years and our experience has been very positive. This is a great opportunity for us to meet with our existing and new partners and customers at the show.

With a stronger team structure, we now offer an improved customer experience and with dedicated personnel who work with our partners and customers by country, by vertical across the whole region to deliver a more personalised and tailored approach.

6.         What are your company’s main recent achievements in the Middle East market?
