How to Operate a Pharmacy in the Age of Social Distancing

Posted June 2, 2020

How Have Pharmacies Been Impacted in the Age of Social Distancing?

The rise of the current health crisis has many pharmacies feeling the increased pressure to continue to operate while keeping their customers and employees safe. Furthermore, many pharmacies have limited their in-store traffic, closed stores altogether and restricted prescription pickup to drive-thru and curbside only. Pharmacies are delivering essential goods and services in an efficient manner. Whether it be in-store, drive-thru or curbside, pharmacies are looking to reduce the exchange of personal items such as insurance cards, ID cards, loyalty cards and digital coupons and the time customers spend waiting in line. Pharmacies are now accelerating their evaluation and deployment of dedicated secondary scanning devices.

Does your grocery store need secondary barcode scanner for faster, more efficient checkouts?

Posted May 12, 2020

Grocery stores have been hard hit by the coronavirus pandemic, quickly updating store policies to keep customers and employees safe. One way to follow social distancing guidelines and quickly scan a full cart is with a secondary barcode scanner for added flexibility.

How Can Secondary Barcode Scanners Help Your Cashiers?

In addition to the scanner at the checkout, a handheld scanner has many uses for grocery store clerks – it lets you easily scan large items left in the cart, or scan heavy items without picking them up, and easily scans a customer’s store card or a coupon displayed on their phone.

Right now, they also allow the store to minimize contact. A secondary scanner can scan store apps, coupons and store cards without physically touching the items.

Honeywell’s Xenon Extreme Performance barcode scanners are a powerful tool for busy grocery and other retail stores. The Xenon XP 1952g wireless scanner is a popular option with several key features for retail:

  • Easily reads barcodes, even on damaged packaging or poor-quality printing
  • Optimized for scanning printed barcodes and codes on smartphones
  • Can perform 450 scans off a single 60-second charge or 50,000 scans with a full charge

If you want a scanner customers can use to scan membership cards or coupons themselves to minimize contact even more, consider the Honeywell Vuquest 3320g scanner instead:

  • Universal mounting option for fixed wall-mount scanning
  • Scans 1D and 2D barcodes & screens like smartphones
  • Laser-free aiming removes the risk of eye injury to customers

Staying Safe with Click and Collect Grocery Shopping

Posted April 29, 2020
Online Click and Collect Shopping is a growing market for grocery stores

Social distancing guidelines are helping to stop the spread of COVID-19. Yet they present a new challenge for retail stores – especially grocery stores hit hard by changes in demand and shopping habits. Click and collect solutions have been slowly growing in the retail industry and allow customers to order online and pickup their items curbside with no contact for safety.

Honeywell’s wide range of retail products includes mobile computers, barcode printers, scanners, and more can help your store continue to serve customers in these quickly changing times.

What is Click and Collect Shopping?

Honeywell CT40 Mobile Computer Makes Click and Collect Online Orders Easy to Pick

Grocery stores have been slowly transitioning to online shopping; according to Nielsen, 4% of grocery sales were online in 2019. But recent data has shown how much demand there is to order groceries online and pick them up.

Click and collect shopping uses an online portal where customers place their grocery orders and select a pickup time. Employees can then go pick the orders and pack them, and then load them into customer’s cars at the pickup location.

This shopping style is convenient for the customers who can order at their leisure and helps maintain social distancing by reducing crowds in stores.

What You Need for Click and Collect Shopping

Some grocery store chains have their own version of click and collect shopping, managed through the store directly. There are also third-party services that customers can use, which are also growing in popularity right now.

Honeywell’s wide range of retail solutions can help your store set up or expand a click and collect grocery shopping option.

Mobile handheld computers like the Honeywell CT40 Mobile Computer, with a built-in Mobility Edge platform, make it easy to pull up the order list and pick items. Built-in scanning technology helps the employee know they picked the right item and can feed back into your inventory reports.

Mobile printers like the Honeywell RP4e can create a printed ticket and receipt for your employees and the customers.

Other items you may want include headsets and mobile POS payment terminals.

A Warehouse Robotics Company Implements iPad Mini & Powerful Barcode Scanning Solution

Posted July 6, 2018

warehouse-robotsExecutive Summary
A warehouse robotics manufacturing company was in search of a user interface to complete and enhance their robots. A powerful barcode scanning solution with a strong and durable scan engine was required to improve processes. Additionally, it needed to be compatible with the iPad Mini due to their workers familiarity with the product and integration with their existing enterprise software.

Barcodes identified an optimal barcode scanning solution that not only streamlined processes but also increased the revenue stream for a robotics company’s clients.

The Business Challenge
The robots created by the robotics company are used at their customer’s facilities. A technologically advanced solution was required to allow warehouse associates the ability to interact directly with the robots for order picking, inventory control, and efficiency measures. They need a simple and lightweight solution to implement various warehouse management applications.

Solution
Barcodes recommended the Infinite Peripherals Infinea Tab™ M and case (CS-TAL) with 1D/2D barcode scanner, along with the Apple iPad Mini. This allowed mobile employees to convert the Apple iPad Mini into a powerful warehouse management and scanning solution to fulfill their operational needs. The Infinea Tab™ M has a 2D imager scan engine which reads the most widely used 1D and 2D barcodes that has made it the ideal solution for order picking and inventory control.

Benefits
Having implemented the solution, the warehouse robotics company has seen the benefits of using an iPad mini and powerful scanning solution in one. The intuitive user interface on the Infinea Tab™ M has led to increased productivity by the end users, which has allowed more orders to ship; thus, revenue to increase for their customers.

The warehouse robotics company has scaled widely once their robots were delivered and implemented at each of their customer’s site. Not only through word of mouth, but through various trade shows, the interest in the robots and the technology used within the robots has set the company on a path for tremendous growth with the help of Barcodes.
