Posted December 1, 2015

With the ever growing use of 2D barcodes in couponing and mobile advertising, more and more retailers are finding a need to embrace 2D Imagers in their checkout process.

The Advantages of Migrating to Cordless Scanners for Healthcare Applications

Posted November 9, 2015

2015-11-09_1043Best-in-class healthcare organizations are looking to cordless scanners for their next deployment, but not just for the obvious reasons. The latest generation of cordless healthcare scanners bring with them unique technologies that can truly transform common clinician workflows, making nurse’s more productive and focused, while enabling a higher degree of patient safety.

Advantage 1 (The Obvious One): Freedom of movement— nurses need to go to the barcode
Freedom of movement around patients, family members, and expensive equipment—particularly in congested patient wards or ICUs—is a continued challenge for today’s clinician. As more and more technology is packed into the modern-day patient room, free space comes at a premium. Tethering a scanner to a wall-mounted computer or to a workstation-on-wheels (WoW) cart just does not meet the needs of today’ on-the-move nurse. Not every monitor, IV bag, infusion pump, or oxygen line with a barcode is going to be located next to the workstation, so taking the scanner to the barcode is a necessity.

Advantage 2: Free up the nurse’s hands with presentation scanning
A capability currently found only in the cordless Xenon healthcare scanners, presentation mode scanning is dramatically faster than point-and shoot scanning. Eliminating the need to aim and pull the trigger on each scan, presentation mode scanning instead allows the clinician to “present” the items to the scanner. Xenon’s high performance sensors automatically detect objects in its field of view and rapidly scans regardless of angle, orientation, symbology or background material.

Advantage 3: Easier to clean
Cables and cords found in hospital rooms—especially those that come in contact with the floor, hands, bedding, or the patient—carry the most potential for germs. Not only is the cable subject to exposure to bacteria and viruses, it can also be the most difficult component to clean. According to the CDC, one in 25 hospital patients will be infected with a healthcare-associated infection during their hospital stay.1 Going cordless not only saves time on common tasks, but should also reduce the possibility of these infections occurring.

Key Benefits of Vehicle Mount Terminals

Posted November 3, 2015

termianlsLook into any mid to large scale warehouse operation and you will see vehicle mount terminals in use to improve efficiencies across the facility. Especially in the case of forklifts, embedding a capable mobile terminal can improve productivity and reduce errors from the docks to the yard. Having access to accurate information at all time in real-time aids in every process from receiving to storing, moving around, cross docking and picking.

Key Benefits of Vehicle Mount Terminals

  • The vehicle terminal tells your driver exactly what items to pick-up
  • The driver has detailed information at all times on where to store product such as a bin or rack number and can confirm the putaway is complete
  • The terminal can track product in real time while it is being moved within your warehouse or even cross docked for immediate shipping
  • The real time accuracy of information right in the vehicle that is picking the product eliminates human error in selecting the wrong product
  • A vehicle mount computer than can immediately confirm the right product is being moved onto the right truck for shipping, eliminating human error

3 Reasons to Upgrade to EMV Now

Posted October 8, 2015

With the official October 1st EMV compliance date behind us, there are still many retailers that have not made the needed changes to properly process EMV enabled cards. Almost all banks and credit card companies have issued chip-embedded cards to their customers in time for the busy holiday shopping season so it really begs the question what are the real advantages to making the EMV switch.

  1. Fighting Fraud – Chip cards generate a one-time code with every transaction making it nearly impossible to create counterfeit cards for use in stores.As the EU has completed its migration to EMV acceptance, the region has seen an 80% reduction in credit card fraud while the US has witnessed a 47% increase
  2. Lower Chargebacks – Beginning October 1, 2015, new network rules mean merchants are more likely to be financially liable for fraud, lost/stolen transactions at their in-store locations without EMV compliance. In 2015 that liability in the United States is estimated to total more than $10 billion.
  3. Customer Peace of Mind – Customers are more than likely to shop at stores where they feel their information is safe. It only takes once to lose the customers trust and it is very difficult to get it back.

Two of the easiest solutions to become EMV compliant is simply upgrading your current payment terminals to EMV enabled ones like the Ingenico ISC250 and iPP350. Updating is an easy process and one of our Payment Processing specialists can help you find the right device for a hassle free update. Contact us today to get EMV compliant.
