Black Friday Shows an Uptick in EMV Usage

Posted November 29, 2017

black friday in-store payment methodsThe uptick in EMV usage has increased yet again since 2015’s liability shift. Of the credit card transactions made on Black Friday this year chip-on-chip usage went up from 55% in 2016 to 73% this year, according to Cayan. Magnetic Stripe usage went down from 34% to 18%. This is a good sign as this will likely continue the decline of in-store card fraud because of the safety that chip cards provide.

It’s clear that EMV is here to stay and something that should be included in any standard POS Terminals. Not having an EMV POS terminal could risk the loss of potential clients. See below for some options on EMV equipped POS terminals.

Into the Cold: Cold Storage Mobile Computers

Posted November 22, 2017

Warm garments are essential for warehouse workers to perform daily operations in the cold, the same goes for mobile computers. Mobile computers must be built to perform under these demanding condition.

Moving a standard mobile computer in and out between normal and cold areas is extremely hard on the device even if it’s ruggedized. Short term: the LCD screen fogs up, batteries won’t release enough energy and processors may not perform optimally. Long term: Screens and housing will become brittle and repeated condensation can cause internal components to corrode, short-circuit, and fail.

If you work in an environment that is typically exposed to cold temperatures, consider the devices below:

Motorola‘s Omnii XT15f Mobile Computer
Omnii XT15

  • Lorax Scanner
  • 1/2D options
  • 11 a/b/g
  • Bluetooth
  • Windows CE 6.0
  • Condensation Resistant Chiller Model is built for -4º F / -20º C
  • Condensation Free Arctic Model is built for -22º F / -30º C
  • Screen defroster option

 

Honeywell’s CK75 Cold Storage Mobile Computer

CK75

  • Cold storage
  • Windows or Android OS option
  • Standard or extended range scanner
  • 11 a/b/g/n
  • 2D scanner (scans both 1D and 2D)
  • Standard Unit is built for -4º F / -20º C
  • Cold Storage Unit is built for -22º F / -30º C

Thriving in cold conditions requires the ability to adapt to the environment. Being prepared with the right resources and equipment can lower operating costs by increasing productivity and decrease equipment down time.
