, a recognized global leader
in technologies that extend real-time visibility into operations, today
announced a new relationship with Panasonic. The relationship combines
Zebra’s versatile RW™ Series of mobile
printers with Panasonic Toughbook® mobile computers into a solution
that helps public safety organizations streamline the issuing and
tracking of citations.

“In North America, more public safety departments are turning to
electronic citation applications because they reduce the time officers
spend writing tickets and increase time spent on patrol,” said Tom
Sheahen, vice president, channel distribution sales for Zebra
Technologies. “We are excited to collaborate with Panasonic to offer
this technological innovation within the public safety sector.”

Law enforcement agencies issue millions of traffic and infraction
citations every year. Electronic citations (e-citations),
a mobile ticketing solution in which a field officer generates tickets
by using a tablet or handheld computer and a mobile printer onsite, help
public safety agencies better allocate resources. By replacing the
manual process of writing tickets by hand with an e-citation solution,
it allows field officers to issue more tickets in less time, which helps
them to focus on patrolling and protecting the public. Also, all
citation information is entered into the mobile computer, eliminating
the need to deliver paper copies to local court offices or for multiple
data entry. Additionally, e-citations considerably diminish the amount
of time an officer is out of the vehicle and exposed to passing traffic,
thereby increasing safety.

“Thousands of public safety organizations rely on our suite of
Toughbook® mobile computers in the field to complete their mission
critical day-to-day tasks,” said Scott French, vice president of public
sector sales for Panasonic. “Our partnership with Zebra provides an end
to end solution for processes such as e-citation that leads to greater
departmental efficiencies, officer safety and focus on their core
mission of protecting the public.”

The relationship allows Panasonic to sell Zebra printers within its
existing line of distribution channels and partners in North America.
The solution includes the Panasonic Toughbook mobile computers coupled
with the Zebra RW™ 220 and RW™ 420 mobile printers and related
accessories, to allow maximum portability while maintaining quality and
resilience when in the field. The lightweight design of the RW Series
creates ease of use for the operator, ensuring legible citations are
generated regardless of location or environmental conditions.
