The Checkout Experience and Today’s Shopper

Posted July 23, 2013

Even though the first bar code scan in a retail store took place over 40 years ago, many people still active in the retail industry remember when bar code scanning at the checkout was a novelty; not the norm it is today.  Given the $20,000 price tag of the first grocery store checkout scanner – about $93,000 in today’s dollar – the early technology adopters were truly committed.  Although some naysayers probably thought they should have been committed.

Since then, and especially in the last few years, other technologies have been developed and adapted to improve the retail checkout.  These developments are getting more attention today because Retailers are focused on the importance of an improved in-store shopping experience for their customers.  They are working to keep the in-store experience valuable and relevant as they compete with the online alternatives consumers have at their fingertips.

Improve and Expand Your Scanning Capabilities with Motorola’s LI2208

Posted July 19, 2013

LI2208_Retail Clothing_D3X6883Scanning barcodes has become such a standard and integrated part of many businesses it is easy to think that all scanners are essentially the same. While this may have been more true in the past with traditional laser scanners, recent advances in imaging technologies have brought expanded capabilities to scanners without increases in costs.

The same type of hardware that is being used for cameras in smartphones and tablets is also being used to make better barcode scanners. These new scanner types are called imagers since they are essentially capturing a picture of the barcode and then decoding it. Historically, imagers have been quite a bit more costly than a standard laser scanner but with new units like the Motorola LI2208, we now have imaging scanners at the same cost as a laser scanner.

So what exactly are the advantages of moving to an imager based scanner exactly?
