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.
