Enriching the Customer Experience: Scanners Drive Efficiency at POS and Beyond
Extending Honeywell’s leadership in engineering scanning solutions for the world’s leading retailers, the four new Voyager scanners are designed with the future of retail in mind, helping to reduce checkout time, speed up loyalty program enrollment and age verification, and unlock the full potential of the customer’s mobile shopping experience. The new solutions include:
• Industry’s First Battery-Free Wireless Scanner: The new Voyager 1202G is Honeywell’s first of many battery-free wireless laser scanners, and provides the same aggressive linear barcode scanning performance as a wired scanner but without the long recharge time, maintenance, or environmental disposal issues associated with traditional batteries.
• Pocket 2D Bluetooth Scanner with Full-Size Performance: The affordable Voyager 1602g pocket 2D Bluetooth scanner packs high performance area-imaging technology into an elegant and compact form factor, making it the perfect scanning companion to tablet-based retail POS systems.
• New Upgradable Scanners: For retailers that anticipate the need for area imaging in the future, such as scanning coupons off of customers’ smartphone screens, the Voyager 1450g tethered scanner and Voyager 1452g wireless scanner deliver powerful inear barcode scanning out of the box. Both scanners are available for upgrade at a competitive price to enable PDF and 2D barcode reading at the initial time of purchase or at any point in the future.
