Posted January 18, 2017

Zebra has just announced the release of the DS8100 and DS2200 series handheld 2D scanners at NRF 2017 while showcasing additional solutions that help retailers improve productivity and enhance the customer experience. These new 2D scanners enable retailers to quickly and easily scan virtually any barcode on merchandise, coupons and loyalty cards to provide a faster, more personalized checkout experience.

The high-performance DS8100 instantly captures the most problematic barcodes including dense, poorly printed, dirty or damaged, as well as electronic barcodes on dimly lit displays. The DS8100’s superior scanning range enables cashiers to easily scan items in customers’ shopping carts without leaving the register. Detailed DS8100 scanning performance and battery health metrics simplify spotting and correcting issues before they impact employee productivity and customer service.

The cost-effective DS2200 series enables small- and medium-sized businesses to upgrade to the latest 2D technology at a price comparable to 1D scanners. Ready to use out of the box, the DS2200 series is easy to deploy, use and manage.

Today’s retail customers expect the same level of detail on products when shopping in-store or online. Zebra’s products and solutions provide retailers new levels of visibility and functionality to provide exceptional customer experiences.” – Pat Glennon, Vice President, North America Retail and Hospitality, Zebra
