“Frontline workers, who rely on manual and paper-based processes to get work done today, will now have access to cloud-powered workplace solutions and services,” said Marianne Roling, Vice President, Global System Integrators, Microsoft. “We’re excited that as a result of our collaboration with HCLTech and Zebra, frontline workers will be able to take advantage of innovative and secure Microsoft 365 for Frontline Worker solutions that enable them to be more engaged, efficient and productive.”
“Together, HCLTech, Microsoft and Zebra are modernizing the worker experience to ensure every frontline worker is connected and optimally utilized. Our partnership will ensure continuous innovation to jointly deliver mobile, integrated, and secure solutions to enhance the frontline worker experience and achieve targeted outcomes around productivity, retention, engagement, and customer service by enabling workers to be their very best in any environment,” said Drew Ehlers, Head of Global Partners, Zebra Technologies.
HCLTech’s Fluid Workplace Services harnesses its vast portfolio spanning every aspect of Business to Employee value chain to provide reassurance in supporting frontline employees by building a collaborative ecosystem with experience at the forefront. As a result, Microsoft and Zebra’s vital resources ranging from rugged, purpose-built devices to support services, will continue to be amplified with global implementation and integration from HCLTech. As workplace technology continuously evolves, providing frontline workers with the latest advancements remains a critical pillar in developing holistic solutions and is a key strategic priority for HCLTech, Microsoft and Zebra.

HCLTech, Microsoft, and Zebra have partnered to develop a comprehensive offering that helps enhance productivity and efficiency of the frontline workforce and enhance collaboration with the wider organization,” said Rakshit Ghura, Senior Vice President and Global Head of Digital Workplace Services, HCLTech.
