Barcode hardware comes in many shapes, sizes and capabilities

The number of barcode hardware devices is now rivaling computers. There are different sizes, shapes, capabilities. In the 21st century, the other feature consideration is mobility. Is it too big or do you need a lighter device that can clip to a belt holster like a cell phone.

From tracking inventory in a warehouse to confirming deliveries to wearing a device on your wrist or waist to mounted on a machine, we have the hardware and expertise to customize for your needs. We represent several manufacturers, but in this blog entry, we will look at Honeywell.  In September, Honeywell completed the acquisition of another company we represented, Intermec. This brings huge benefits as Intermec was a leader in mobile computing, radio frequency identification solutions (RFID), voice-enabled workflow and data-collection and printing solutions.

“The acquisition of Intermec will add innovative products and solutions, as well as deep engineering expertise and a broad global sales channel that further demonstrates our commitment to provide our customers an increasing array of innovative technologies in the highly attractive AIDC industry,” said John Waldron, president of Honeywell Scanning & Mobility.

Among the benefits of using a bar code scanner is the ecological savings on paper and the accuracy over trying to decipher different people’s handwriting on paper receipts. Scanners still need to have accurate and optimal software. Honeywell has a miniature and durable scanning laser engine, the N4300 Series, that optimizes results for OEM customers and end users; can be programmed for scanning alignment, has the lowest misread rate, and is the first to provide for hands-free use.

The Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks and Major League Soccer Seattle Sounders are cutting down on lines at the Century Link Field stores by using the Honeywell Captuvo SL22 Enterprise Sled for the iPod touch. The mobility allows sales people to walk down a line and complete transactions by sliding a credit card on the device and inputting the information into the system.

The Thor VM2 vehicle mount computer can be mounted and removed to forklifts in the plant. It comes with a touch screen and Windows 7 or Windows Enterprise System 7. Honeywell also has Granit Industrial-Grade Area-Imaging Scanners.

We can set you up with any of these devices, but no matter which solution you select, these are the benefits you can expect.

  • Automation and quickening the steps in the supply chain process
  • Handheld scanning accelerates receiving, stocking and selecting by 40%-60%.
  • Rugged mobile bar code readers result in products being moved off the floor more rapidly, creating warehouse space.
  • Great customer service. With accuracy at 99.9%, gone will be wrong or incomplete shipments, and processing returns and refunds.
  • Happy customers mean loyal customers and referrals.
