NEW YORK, January 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
How has Motorola been keeping up in the government and enterprise segments? Will economies of scale continue to buoy margins as the company seeks to roll out its new mPOS product line?
With only two years of operating independently, Motorola Solutions (NYSE: MSI) [Full Research Report][(1)] retains its position as a market leader in its core markets, namely public safety government agencies and commercial enterprises. Motorola is continuing its focus on both infrastructure and applications, while looking forward to expand task-specific mobile computing devices for enterprises.

Motorola Solutions has recently teamed up with Best Buy Canada and Future Shop, Canada's first electronic retailers to roll out fully integrated, enterprise mobile point of sale (mPOS) solutions. Both retailers announced that the implementation of the tablet-based mPOS technology has improved their customer service and staff productivity at a number of stores.
Best Buy Canada and Future Shop are leveraging new mPOS applications coupled with devices, such as Motorola Solutions' ET1 Enterprise Tablet, to empower their staff in helping customers have a more convenient shopping experience. With the help of Motorola Solutions' innovations, associates can handle more tasks, manage purchase transactions from anywhere in the store, and leverage omni-channel retail strategies like having out-of-stock items shipped to the customers' homes or stores.
Along with the ET1, Best Buy and Future Shop stores also use many other Motorola Solutions technology, including MC40 mobile computer and MPM-100 Bluetooth mobile payment module, to drive their mPOS strategy.
Here's what Girish Rishi, senior vice president of the Enterprise Solutions of Motorola Solutions, has to say about the mPOS trend:
"Allowing an associate to stay by a customer's side and answer questions, order out-of-stock merchandise for direct delivery, and reinforce his or her purchasing decision increases the likelihood of closing that sale. The new level of responsiveness mPOS delivers makes the shopping experience more personal and interactive. By eliminating the walk to the register, mPOS solutions can help save sales and build brand loyalty."
In their government segment, Motorola Solutions dominates the market with greater than 50% share in public safety radio handsets, infrastructure, software, and services.
Last month, Motorola Solutions received an iF product design award for its MOTOTRBO SL Series digital two-way radio and the LEX 700 mission-critical handheld. These products were selected from more than 3,000 entries for their outstanding design. Motorola Solutions has also been awarded the 2012 North America City Surveillance Partner of the Year by Axis Channel Convergence Conference for providing real-time video intelligence (RTVI) for public safety agencies.
"We are pleased to be working with a world-class organization such as Motorola Solutions in the city surveillance space, a segment where high-quality, reliable IP video is absolutely critical for law enforcement and government agencies. Their expertise and experience working with law enforcement uniquely positions them as a partner that can deliver Axis' solutions to provide a safer city environment for everyone." - Scott Dun, director, Business Development, Axis Communications, Inc.
Motorola Solutions' cost advantage is due to its decades of market share leadership (combining years with its predecessor, Motorola Inc.). Sustained market leadership gives the company the greatest share of the accumulated experience in the communications equipment and greatest benefit from the experience curve. Motorola Solutions is able to lead in innovation, price competitively across product and service tiers, and still generate attractive returns.
Motorola Solutions' strength can be seen in its revenue growth, earning per share, increase in net income, return on equity, and solid stock price performance. These strengths offset the company's weak operating cash flow.
With the achievements and awards that Motorola has been receiving, it has never failed to introduce innovations to the public safety and enterprise segment - products that are ground breaking both in form and function. Technology is always moving forward and Motorola has a history of leading the way.
