Improve the Check-Out Experience with Zebra On-Counter Scanners

Posted April 18, 2017

Convenience is the driving force behind every retail experience. From quick product availability to easy coupon use and a fast checkout, every customer wants an easy and trouble free shopping experience.

The last place you want sour any customer experience is the check-out line. Keeping lines short, easy, and fast is key. A common overlooked component to every point-of-sale system is the barcode scanner. Many businesses opt for the least costly barcode scanner not realizing how it may effect the overall experience. The sooner items are scanned, the faster a customer can be on their way.

Where you would once see a basic 1D laser scanner, today the use of 2D Imagers like the Zebra DS9208 has become a more capable solution. Imagers require less aiming and provide faster reading on printed product barcodes but can also read 2D codes from mobile coupons, mobile gift and loyalty cards, boarding passes and even theater tickets. The DS9208 can even read barcodes off of a phone screen.

The DS9208 provides all the features you need to keep your workers productive, industry-leading scanning speed, true point-and-shoot scanning simplicity ‘ no need to align bar code and scanner, and hands-free and handheld flexibility.

Why EMV, Why Now?

Protecting yourself against counterfeit fraud is one of the main benefits to implement EMV because it’s virtually impossible to recreate the chip. The October 1, 2015 shift has caused some serious headaches, but the ultimate goal is to fix the payment ecosystem by heightening card security.
