StageNow
Zebra's staging solution for Android devices which allows simple profile creation and easy device deployment with a simple barcode scan or tag read.
A next-generation Android staging solution for simple profile creation and easy device deployment
Do you need to configure & manage your Zebra devices as quickly as possible with minimum fuss? Use StageNows desktop client to create your custom configuration settings, e.g. disabling doze mode & changing the default launcher. These configuration settings can be exported to XML / JSON, 1D/2D Barcodes, NFC Tags or a .bin file which can then be applied using the StageNow mobile client. Alternatively, use our EMDK Profile Manager APIs to apply the raw XML/JSON to the device programatically.
