Your customers can stay connected and stay productive with the Samsung Galaxy XCover 5

Despite performing mission-critical roles, many frontline employees are disconnected from colleagues and information.

Only 26% of employees who work in more challenging environments have digital devices.1

Frontline employees who use smartphones say they gain an extra 58 minutes of work time each day on average and see an estimated productivity increase of 34%.2

91% of businesses in a recent survey said investing in rugged technology has reduced their long-term company costs.3

The Samsung Galaxy XCover 5 is built to get the job done

Many frontline workers face daily disruptions because they don’t have the right tools or information at arm’s reach. This not only slows them down, but it’s also frustrating.

The solution isn’t just to give them a device—it’s to give them one that will help them get the job done.

73% of frontline workers claim they need to pause or stop work on a regular basis to retrieve information they don’t have at their fingertips.4

Your customers’ device, their way

With the programmable key on the Samsung Galaxy XCover 5, your customers can transform it into a barcode scanner5, a walkie-talkie and more. They can also access these features faster using the customisable shortcut button.

82% of companies that have made the move to digital devices report higher levels of job satisfaction.6

Businesses that connect their people enjoy 32% more production innovation.7

Fast-charge while your customers work

With the Samsung Galaxy XCover 5, charge time doesn’t have to mean downtime. The two POGO pins and 15W fast charging enable your customers to conveniently recharge using a wireless dock10. Your customers can set up docking stations to charge multiple devices at a time and even transfer data, without any disruption to their work. They can even charge devices in an upright position, so they can continue using mission-critical devices.

Quick barcode scanning

With the Samsung Galaxy XCover 5, your customers can scan using the onboard camera—and they can even create a shortcut button to their scanner, using the programmable key. Professional barcode scanning11 and long and short-range RFID reading capabilities are both optimised for fast, accurate data transmission—even in demanding conditions. And all scanned data is directly transferred to business applications, saving your customers time and improving accuracy.
