Motorola - MC40

It’s hard to deliver service that will impress today’s demanding and technology savvy customers but with the pocket-sized MC40 in your hands you will.

Everything You Need at Your Fingertips

You can scan an item barcode to look up price, inventory availability or item location; look up a gift registry and product information; present a comparison of multiple products; call virtually anyone in the store carrying any type of mobile device for help with a question; ring up the sale and even complete a loyalty card application—all without ever walking away from the customer. When you and your staff are not assisting customers, the MC40 can be used to execute the many tasks required to keep your store at its best for your customers, such as price audits, markups and markdowns, replenishing store shelves and line busting. And while the MC40 offers the cool consumer look you want for your customers on the outside, you get the durability, data security and centralised management needed to achieve a true enterprise-class lifecycle—and low total cost of ownership.

Real Business-class Durability

You get the durability that Motorola Solutions is famous for—the MC40 simply works, even if your employees drop it, bump it, use it in a dusty back-room or splash liquid on it.

Our Most Advanced Scan Technology

You can scan 1D and 2D barcodes printed on paper or displayed on the screen of a customer’s mobile phone with laser-style speed—even if the codes are dirty, damaged or poorly printed. Omni-directional scanning delivers point-and-shoot simplicity—no need to align the device and barcode.

Comprehensive and Secure Payment Processing

The integrated magnetic stripe reader allows associates to scan a credit, gift or loyalty card. And with an encrypted head, information is never visible in the clear, helping meet PCI regulations.

Rich Photographic Intelligence

The high-resolution 8 MP camera allows you to easily document the condition of an incoming shipment, promotion compliance and more with the quick press of a button.

Large 4.3-inch Touch Screen Display

Provides the screen real-estate to support information-intensive apps, such as product comparisons.

A Powerful Voice Connection to Nearly Any Other Mobile Device

With our unique integrated voice solutions, the MC40 is push-to-talk (PTT) ready right out of the box, easily connecting to other PTT-enabled Motorola mobile computers as well as two-way radios.

Replaceable Battery for Guaranteed Availability Every Shift

Up to 10 hours of operation on a single charge virtually eliminates downtime due to a dead battery during a shift. Swappable batteries protect device uptime and increase device utilisation.

Powerful Application Performance

An 800 MHz processor, 8GB Flash memory and support for 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi provides desktop-like speed for demanding applications.

Android Fortified for the Enterprise

We added a series of new features that transform Android from a consumer operating system to a true enterprise-class OS.
