Retailers are feeling more pressure than ever from consumers to deliver faster and smoother service,” said Lynn Huang Freeman, head of marketing and strategy, Honeywell Scanning & Mobility Asia Pacific.
“With these new products, our goal is to give retail professionals the ability and freedom to select the right tools to enable innovative marketing programs and effortlessly run operations,” he further added.
“Retailers are feeling more pressure than ever from consumers to deliver faster and smoother in-store experiences,” commented Bob Grabowski, director of industry marketing, Honeywell Scanning & Mobility, adding, “With these new products, our goal is to give retail professionals the ability and freedom to select the right tools to enable innovative marketing programs and effortlessly run operations while improving the customer experience.”
The Voyager 1602G is a pocket 2D Bluetooth scanner features area-imaging technology in a compact form factor, designed for tablet-based retail POS systems.
For retailers who anticipate the need for area imaging in future, such as scanning coupons from customers’ smartphone screens, the Voyager 1450g tethered scanner and Voyager 1452g wireless scanner are designed for linear barcode scanning out of the box. Both scanners are available for upgrade to enable QR code and 2D barcode reading at the initial time of purchase or at any point in the future.
The Honeywell’s latest output Voyager 1202G is Industry’s first battery-free wireless scanner that provides same linear barcode scanning performance as a wired scanner but without the long recharge time, environmental disposal or maintenance issues associated with traditional batteries.
