White Paper : iOS Compatibility

Posted October 29, 2015

IOSWhat is it?

Not all barcode scanners or data capture devices are compatible with Apple iOS devices, and for those that are, a significant amount of testing and development are required to assure proper device operation. However, after a huge demand from small and medium-sized business owners to incorporate iPads, iPhones, and other Apple devices into their workforce management workflow, Apple invested extensive time and resources into certifying iOS devices with select data capture devices. Now, business owners have the ability to connect their Apple device to a data capture device via Bluetooth or a physical sled or cradle in order to conduct asset tracking, point of sale, inventory management, and other applications.

When is it coming?

iOS compatibility exists today. Many businesses ranging from small to enterprise-level are using iPads, iPhones and iPods to perform inventory management, asset tracking, and mobile point of sale activities. Hardware devices such as barcode scanners, label printers, receipt printers, cash drawers, and RFID readers are now equipped with software utilities that allow for connection to your preferred Apple device.

Gain Control Over your Assets with RFID Asset – Modern Software for Growing Businesses

Posted October 2, 2015

One of the complex challenges small and medium sized organizations face is efficiently keeping track of critical assets as their organizations scale. Without a reliable automated asset management system, there is a sharp increase in redundancies, expenditures, and labor.

Imagine locating many diverse assets in a room in a matter of seconds, rather than hours. Because RFID technology reads multiple tags at once without requiring a line of sight, customers are able to more quickly and accurately locate and track assets without the physical challenges of scanning bar codes and manual methods.

RFID Asset maximizes Radio Frequency Identification technology to automate asset tracking and management in a wide variety of environments and situations. The software supports passive RFID tags, barcodes, fixed readers like the Zebra FX7500 and mobile handheld readers like Zebra’s MC3190-Z and MC9190-Z.

Transforming the Customer Experience with RFID

Posted September 15, 2015

Despite the explosion of online choices, customers still value seeing and touching merchandise firsthand – an experience only available to them in a brick-and-mortar store. When retailers add the cutting-edge benefits of radio frequency identification (RFID) technology to that unique advantage, they help close the all-to-common gaps in service, information and inventory of traditional retail and open more opportunities for sales and customer satisfaction.

RFID empowers retailers like never before, elevating shopping into an enriching and positive experience. With RFID as part of a total solution, retailers can greet customers by name, impress them with a wider selection of merchandise, and better serve them with faster assistance, deeper product information and more personalized promotions. What’s more, retailers can turn shopping time into social time with RFID enabled kiosks that enable customers to interact with their social network of family and friends. And when customers are ready to buy, so are retailers. RFID applications can identify merchandise, recognize loyalty accounts and facilitate mobile transactions. Even fulfilling customers’ needs is easier using RFID. Retailers gain real-time visibility into inventory, so they can expedite fulfillment of orders from closer locations. In short, RFID – along with advanced retail technology – can help keep customers happy and coming back in this intensely competitive industry.
