Anders Gustafsson - Zebra Technologies Corporation - Chief Executive Officer & Director at Zebra Technologies
Thank you, Nathan. I am encouraged by the strengthening demand across our business and the bold actions our teams are taking to navigate supply chain challenges. Slide 11 illustrates how we digitize and automate the front line of business by leveraging our industry-leading portfolio of products, solutions, software and services. By transforming workflows Zebra's customers can address complex operational challenges to achieve higher levels of performance. By closely collaborating with our partners and customers, we help businesses across a variety of end markets to implement solutions that maximize their return on investment.
Human labor is a scarce resource. Our innovative solutions empower their workforce to do their jobs more effectively by navigating constant change in near real time, utilizing insights driven by advanced software capabilities such as machine vision, prescriptive analytics and artificial intelligence. In October, we acquired Antuit for approximately $145 million to further advance our Enterprise Asset Intelligence vision. This high-margin Software as a Service business generated sales of approximately $27 million in 2020, nearly doubling over a three-year period.
Slide 12 illustrates how the AI-powered demand forecasting solution ensures that its retail and consumer product customers have the right inventory at the right time at the optimal price, whether it's fulfilled through online ordering or in-store shopping. Antuit's cutting-edge offering complements our suite of workflow software solutions, including Reflexis, Zebra Prescriptive Analytics, Workforce Connect and SmartCount, which works together to increase the performance of labor and inventory across the integrated supply chain. Our growing software suite will help our customers break down silos between planning and execution, giving them a competitive advantage that can increase revenue and margins as they navigate the increased demands of omnichannel fulfillment.
Now turning to Slide 13. Businesses partner with Zebra to optimize their end-to-end workflows. I would like to highlight a few recent key wins across our end markets that demonstrate how Zebra solutions are improving productivity and service levels. In retail, Zebra is enabling improved execution of omnichannel fulfillment as more consumers shop online. We recently secured our largest win to date in India, providing TC21 mobile computers and printers to help a local retailer compete more effectively against its larger omnichannel and e-commerce global competitors. We are also enabling a Japanese supermarket chain to provide an improved customer experience with our EC55 personal shopping mobile computing solution.
Over the next several quarters, a leading home improvement retailer will be deploying 90,000 TC52 mobile computers to a broader number of associates in their stores. Key use cases include item locationing, best-in-class long-range imaging, mobile point-of-sale and e-commerce functionality. Competitive differentiators for this win included our seamless network connectivity, best-in-class noise cancellation and enterprise leading durability. Our mobile computers will also have full desktop functionality when inserted into workstation cradles.
This retailer is also deploying our Workforce Connect Software-as-a-Service solution, which enables associate-to-associate instant collaboration as well as associated-to-group and's store-to-store communication. A leading North American transportation and logistics company is deploying 9,000 TC77 mobile computers to their truck drivers for loading and delivery use cases. This solution will increase productivity, improve inventory accuracy, log driving times and track regulatory compliance. Turning to
Slide 14, we highlight how health care providers are using Zebra solutions to digitize and automate the patient journey and address labor challenges. Our recently published Vision study highlights that 95% of decision-makers expect to increase spending in health care IT and clinical mobility in the next year. We have some exciting recent strategic wins that demonstrate our value proposition. We recently secured a takeaway win of a leading U.S. health care provider with more than 150 hospitals and approximately 2,000 sites of care.
This customer selected Zebra to provide a multiyear rollout of 85,000 scanners for a wide range of use cases, including bedside nursing, surgery, pharmacy and inventory management. They also recognized our unique software tools that enable real-time event tracking to prioritize patient care. A large Eastern European public hospital system recently placed in order to provide 19,000 TC25 mobile computers to nurses across 100 hospitals. Hospitals are facing labor shortages made worse by the pandemic, which puts patient safety at risk. Zebra's solutions, including printers and wrist bands, reduces the administrative burden on the nursing staff and allows for more efficient patient care. Our value proposition to this customer also includes real-time tracking of costs of supplies, equipment and medicine.
Additionally, Zebra is growing our long-standing relationship with GE Healthcare, whose solution, Encompass, utilizes Zebra's Bluetooth beacon technology for medical equipment asset management. This solution improves asset utilization and prevents unnecessary equipment replacement purchases. Caregivers also benefit by reduced time searching for medical equipments, which can increase time dedicated to patient care. In closing, the pandemic has accelerated trends that have been driving Zebra's business, including omnichannel shopping adoption, the desire for track and trace across the supply chain and the need for a more digital health care experience. Our core markets are vibrant and our prospects to scale newer expansion markets are bright. We are steadily navigating through significant transitory industry-wide supply chain challenges. That said, we continue to be as excited as ever about our long-term profitable growth prospects.
Now I'll hand the call back over to Mike.
