As you may have read recently, StayLinked and Zebra have officially announced the release of SmartTEK, the highly-anticipated Android solution for TekTerm users currently available on select Zebra devices. SmartTEK is the culmination of hard work from both teams which has resulted in a clear migration path to Android for TekTerm customers. Because TekTerm is a well-established product whose architecture can accommodate various installation configurations, we also understand that this solution evokes a number of questions from our partners around the globe.
On November 1, 2019, StayLinked and Zebra Technologies officially released SmartTEK to support TekTerm TE for Android™-based Zebra mobile computers. SmartTEK provides customers a migration path to easily transition their legacy devices to more modern, feature-rich mobile computers. Zebra will be offering the StayLinked SmartTEK solution for customers using MIS/TekRF solutions who want to migrate to Android allowing customers with SAP and IBM host applications to run on Zebra Android devices. The SmartTEK solution is also a replacement for customers using MIS/TekRF to emulate SAP applications, IBM 5250 and 3270, and VT emulations.
Managing Your Terminal Emulation Applications the Right Way
Mobile Device Management (MDM) is a critical part of any enterprise warehouse operation, especially in managing and securing large numbers of mobile devices (StayLinked is a proud SOTI partner). It simplifies the security and management of multi-vendor, multi form-factor and multi-operating devices in a multi-purpose mobility ecosystem. And when it comes to managing Terminal Emulation, spending time on unnecessary hurdles to manage and update software can waste time, human resources, and money. A software management approach that introduces unnecessary steps can compromise productivity and create headaches for your IT department. With StayLinked's integrated server solution, you have complete control. If any change needs to be made, all devices across the enterprise are updated, in real-time without deploying a single file, and without having to rely on additional software. In fact, when evaluating an enterprise-grade Terminal Emulation solution, we highly recommend asking these questions:

StayLinked and Cognex Corporation are proud to announce that we are now working together to offer StayLinked software on the Cognex series of ruggedized handheld computers, featuring the MX-1502 Series vision-enabled mobile terminal, the MX-1000 Series mobile barcode reader for rugged environments.

StayLinked and IoT: The Bright Future of Terminal Emulation
If you've heard us speak at any of the events we've recently attended, then you're aware that we see a bright future for Terminal Emulation. Of course, StayLinked SmartTE is a big part of that bright future, but in this post we're going to step farther into the future to explore how Terminal Emulation will extend its relevance into technologically-advanced warehouses.
StayLinked is named Partner for Zebra's Savanna IoT Platform
On September 26, Zebra unveiled Savanna, a real-time visibility platform that gives Zebra hardware customers insights into certain asset and operational data sets, and announced a partnership with StayLinked to bring this unique value to their customers.
In recent years, new operating systems (Android and Windows 10) and new innovative device form factors (e.g. Zebra's TC8000, which lacks a physical keyboard) have introduced major changes into this space. StayLinked's collaboration with Zebra has increased significantly and some of these new features (e.g. StayLinked SmartTE and StayLinked Smart Keyboard) have made vast improvements to the user experience on these new Zebra devices and have helped significantly with Android adoption across the industry.
StayLinked’s most recent innovation is StayLinked iQ, a product which delivers intelligence and actionable insight to Terminal Emulation customers. "Most of these TE environments have been starved of valuable information over the past 15 years," says Padraig Regan, who guides StayLinked Labs, an innovation-focused research and development group within the company. "Now, we can provide our customers with real worker productivity data and highlight what actions need to be taken to improve and maximize productivity. There is a lot of anticipation and excitement in the market around the product which is due to be released commercially in the first quarter of 2018."
