American Red Cross Selects Motorola MC55 Mobile Computer for Blood Drives

Posted September 17, 2010

Nationwide deployment includes mobile computing and wireless LAN solutions

The American Red Cross announced it will use a more than 6,000 Motorola MC55 mobile barcode scanners to improve tracking and documentation of blood donations for its blood drives.

The 36 Red Cross regions nationwide will have access to the new barcode scanning technology, which will enable them to keep an organized and accurate listing of donations when it conducts its more than 200,000 blood drives each year.

The organization collects 6.5 million blood donations annually from nearly four million volunteer donors. As much as 80 percent of these donations are collected during mobile blood drives held by various organizations, colleges or other community institutions.

Collecting blood donations requires a high-level of monitoring and safety protocols to ensure information is properly documented and marked. By using barcode technology, data for each blood donation can be quickly gathered and uploaded onto an electronic database.

Many health facilities have introduced barcode technology to improve the accuracy and management of blood packages. Recently, hospitals in the United Kingdom adopted a smartcard and barcode technology system to improve the safety and reliability of blood transfusions.

Datalogic Pegaso Optimizes Supermarket’s Distribution Warehouse

Posted September 16, 2010

Datalogic PegasoThe Familiya supermarket chain was founded in 2000. Today Familiya is a large company that produces clothes, footwear and many other goods at reasonable prices. It has 39 stores in the Moscow region and Saint Petersburg with a total floor space of over 30,000 square meters. It also includes a distribution warehouse, purchasing department and business support services.

In the past, all warehousing operations, such as receiving, dispatch and inventory, were done manually. In an area of 7,500 square meters, many errors occurred and goods were lost. In order to avoid these errors, Datalogic partner recommended the Datalogic Pegaso PDA.

The numerous benefits provided by Pegaso were the deciding factors for this choice. This rugged PDA provides a large color and clear touch display (3.7 in) that helps users work more efficiently in various lighting conditions, it includes a large memory (128 MB) with extension possibility, an IP64 protection class and can be dropped from 1.5m to a concrete surface without breaking down. Furthermore, the Windows Mobile 6.0 operating system allows use of numerous standard development tools and the quick-attach handle assures comfortable device usage while reducing user fatigue during intensive scanning. Another additional benefit is obtained by the rechargeable Li-on battery pack, which allows Pegaso™ continuous operation for 12 hours, improving productivity.

Scan City’s partner Soft Merit, dealing with warehouse automation solutions at Familiya, has installed 10 Pegasos, supplying one third of Familiya’s distribution warehousing personnel with these devices. However, the automation process has not been completed yet. In the near future, 20 more Pegaso™ PDAs will be installed and Familiya is studying the possibility of using other Datalogic Mobile terminals in its stores.

Motorola MC65 Rugged Mobile Computer

Posted September 14, 2010

Motorola MC65Software-Configurable, Dual 3.5G WAN Enterprise Digital Assistant

Make the most out of every minute in the field — with the Motorola MC65

Supercharge your mobile workforce and redefine productivity with the toughest, most flexible EDA on the market. Workers have multiple tasks and limited time. With the Motorola MC65, they have the tools in hand to get their jobs done right — right now. Desktop-like performance provides instant access to the applications and information back at the office. Shave hours of time out of the work week by capturing and processing just about any type of data on site, quickly and easily — from a single document to hundreds of bar codes, a library of photos or a signature. Activate and reactivate the MC65 on virtually any cellular network in the world, eliminating the need to purchase network technology (GSM or CDMA) specific devices, extending device lifecycle and ensuring that each and every worker has the best connection possible. Add a customizable user interface that makes doing business easier than ever and you have a real workforce multiplier — a device that turns paperwork and repeat visits into more tasks completed per day.

Streamline and error-proof processes with advanced data capture

The MC65 does it all —1D and 2D bar codes, photos complete with embedded notes, documents, signatures and more. Poorly printed or damaged bar codes a problem? Not for the MC65. Our most advanced scanning technology allows the rapid-fire capture of items as they are removed from the delivery truck, so your customers get what they ordered, every time.

With the MC65, an equipment inspector can capture a photo, add comments and automatically embed a geostamp via integrated GPS, sending supervisors the information they need to get the right technician to the right location to complete a repair. And that repair technician can take and transmit live video to collaborate with a specialist to troubleshoot a problem. A city building inspector can capture a document, complete with legible fine print and a signature, keeping all forms related to a code enforcement case in hand. And when account managers scan the product inventory remaining on the shelves in a grocery store, the resulting real-time count creates real-time accurate sales orders and production schedules.

Connect to virtually any carrier network in the world — GSM or CDMA

The MC65 offers a Motorola first — the ability to connect to virtually any wireless carrier around the world. Both 3.5G GSM HSPA and CDMA EVDO Rev A software configurable cellular radios are built into the device, allowing you to select the network that will provide the best coverage for your workers. Do your workers travel through large territories best served by different networks? Need to activate on a different network for workers in a different office? No problem. This single device can be deployed and re-deployed on virtually any network, anywhere in the world, making purchasing and device management easy — and maximizing your return on investment.

Rugged Mobile Computers — Which Operating System Is Right For You?

Posted July 16, 2010

A White Paper By Datalogic Mobile Inc.


Mobile computers have become ubiquitous in the enterprise, from the warehouse floor to the boardroom. Thanks to advancements in processor speeds, reductions in cost, and the development of robust and reliable wireless local and wide-area networks, an increasing number of businesses have deployed mobile devices across a wide array of applications — warehouse management, sales force automation, field service, point of sale, and others.

Because mobile computers must, in many cases, communicate in real time with back-end business systems, the mobile operating systems (OS) on these devices play a key role in the successful integration of mobile applications with the wider corporate IT infrastructure. In the case of rugged or semi-rugged mobile devices targeted at vertical applications, the OS of choice has been Microsoft Windows CE.

However, over the past several years, new OS platform options have emerged from both Microsoft and other providers that have made the mobile operating system landscape more complicated. Since a mobile computing deployment can have significant security, productivity, and IT ramifications on the business, a careful approach to OS selection will help ensure a successful implementation and reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) of these devices.
