Barcodes, Inc. Recommends AirTrack S1 for Four Lakes Alpine Snowsports’s Point of Sale and Ski Lift

Posted January 9, 2017

imageFour Lakes Alpine Snowsports is a recreational facility that specializes in offering skiing and snowboarding to riders of all levels. They were looking for a point of sale solution that was capable of handling credit card sales receipts and gift cards. Additionally, they wanted the capability to print and scan lift tickets for customers to carry and for employees to scan at the point of sale and various lift locations. Finally, Four Lakes saw a value in being able to offer gift cards to their customer base since snow sport facilities were scarce in and around the Chicago-land area.

Barcodes, Inc. put together a 1) Point of Sale, 2) Scan and Print, and 3) Gift Card solution for Four Lakes Alpine Snowsports. Barcodes recommended the AirTrack S1 barcode scanner, MMF Heritage 240 cash drawer, and Epson TM-T88V receipt printer for the point of sale application. The S1 and TM-T88V are ideal general purpose devices that are built to last, while the Heritage 240 is a unitized steel cash drawer that is an ideal solution for non-cash transactions. Barcodes recommended the AirTrack S1 barcode scanner and CognitiveTPG DLXi barcode printer for Four Lakes’s scan and print application. The DLXi is a reliable barcode printer with a metal frame that is designed to operate in challenging environments, while the S1 is capable of reading 1D barcode labels. Since implementing these solutions, Four Lakes Alpine Snowsports has become more efficient and uncovered a way to increase their revenue stream.

Cell Touch Uses AirTrack S1 for Retail Point of Sale

Posted December 14, 2016

Cell Touch is an authorized dealer for MetroPCS across Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida. They reached out to Barcodes, Inc. because they were having complications with their existing barcode scanners, which had sub-par scanning performance and consistently broke on-site. Cell Touch wanted a barcode scanner that wouldn’t require the clerks at their retail locations to scan multiple times to get a good read and something that was capable of providing good-read feedback. Additionally, they wanted a hands-free solution that allowed their clerks to simply wave the barcode across the line of sight instead of having to manually pick up the barcode scanner to scan.

Barcodes, Inc. recommended the AirTrack S1 for Cell Touch’s retail point of sale locations. The S1 is a small, lightweight, and ergonomic barcode scanner that comes equipped with Green Spot technology for good-read feedback. The AirTrack barcode scanner is also available with a gooseneck stand that offers a flexible and hands-free scanning solution at the point of sale. Barcodes worked with Cell Touch to test out the S1 at 15 of their retail locations. Upon receiving positive feedback from the individual stores’ employees they moved forward with launching AirTrack as their scanning brand of choice. Cell Touch is expanding into new locations and Barcodes, Inc. will continue to be their trusted data capture advisor.

Posted June 3, 2016

The integration of digital solutions is forcing retailers to transition traditional POS functionality beyond merely checking out customers. The omichannel world continues to change the breadth of retailing, and stores must learn to adapt.

Many retailers are exploring how to implement evolving business concepts as a means to stay relevant in an always-on business environment, they must move beyond traditional point-of-sale (POS) systems toward the next-generation “omni-terminal.”

Case Study: College Retailer Says “RAH-RAH-RAH” to Sleek Custom POS Imagers

Posted April 15, 2015

Motorola DS4801-SR4U0000SGNFans of the Oregon State Beavers know that, when the score is close, a few yards on the gridiron can become very valuable real estate, indeed. But on game days, some of the most valuable retail real estate in Oregon is actually just across the street from Reser Stadium – in the OSU Beaver Store.

Beaver games can bring as many as 45,000 fans to the stadium and many of them will make their way to the Beaver Store to buy licensed gear and apparel. During the four hour game rush, the store typically processes between 3,000 – 4,000 transactions at its 22 cash registers.

“Generally, our customers are in good humor on game days, but moving efficiently is the key to keeping them that way,” says Torsten Pihl, I.S. Coordinator for the Beaver Store. “They line up out the doors, running a gauntlet of crowd control stanchions and registers. If we can save even just a few seconds on each transaction, we can maximize sales while the crowds are here, while keeping our fans and alumni happy.” So as they have many times before, the Beaver Store called on Zebra.
