Empowering Healthcare Providers with Honeywell’s 1900h Series Imagers

Posted January 12, 2016

With the ever changing healthcare landscape, hospitals are constantly under pressure to  consistently perform to always evolving regulations. Add to this that many hospitals are being forced to do more with less staff and you have a genuine need to improve the efficiency and accuracy of every process from identifying patients and accessing electronic medical record data to general bedside care.

Providing hospital staff with the right barcode scanner is a simple step to take to empower them to do more with less. Honeywell is leading the way with a line of scanners designed specifically to meet the needs for healthcare applications.

All of these scanners provide full decoding of any 1D, 2D, and Stacked barcodes and have disinfectant-ready housings that will handle daily cleaning without ever effecting performance.

Future-Proof Scanning with Honeywell’s Voyager 1450g

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. Being able to easily read barcodes from a smartphone screen or capture customer data from a driver’s license can greatly improve the customer experience and help generate repeat business.

Beyond retail applications, many government regulations and supplier mandates are requiring the use of 2D barcodes due to their ability to store more data. Enterprises are also looking to leverage emerging trends that require area-imaging technology, today or in the near future, without the need to purchase additional scanning hardware, or settle for reduced scanning performance.

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

White Paper: Mobile Coupon Return on Investment

Posted September 17, 2015

InVenue-Mobile_mobile-couponMobile coupon popularity is growing rapidly in the retail sector. One analyst firm, solely focused on mobile, predicts that mobile coupons redeemed will almost double between 2014 and 2019 to more than 31 billion.

Initially, the move to incorporate mobile coupons into the mix of discounts available to consumers was driven by retailers wanting to provide a unique and improved consumer experience. In addition, a handful of retailers were looking for a solution that would limit their coupon liability exposure through the use of one-time-use mobile coupons. Today, a majority of retailers are interested in the ROI of implementing a mobile coupon solution as mobile coupon use is becoming increasingly popular with consumers. This is also driving the adoption of area-imaging (2D) scanners capable of reading QR codes and other coupons directly off the screen of customers’ mobile devices.
