How the Updated CR7020 Protective Case Helps Mobile Devices Thrive

Posted November 3, 2021

https://codecorp.com/products/cr7000-series

This past August, Code Corporation launched the disinfectant ready CR7010 battery backup case. Designed for the mobile healthcare workforce, the case doubles the battery life of iPhones and allows for full clinical sanitization protocols without causing device damage.

Now, the updated CR7020 protective case offers several improvements over the CR7010, notably its compatibility with the latest iPhone models and sizes.

Unlike most consumer-grade cases, the CR7000 series protective cases hold iPhones in a full enclosure for maximum protection. For most healthcare and other industry segments around the world such as retail and logistics, mobile scanning is extremely convenient, familiar for users, and helps improve patientcare and customer service alike.

Jana Buchanan, Senior Product Manager of Hardware for Code Corporation, had additional comments. ”We are excited about expanding our mobile device product line to include options for additional iPhone sizes.  This new product line allows us to support our customers with more options, more sizes, more flexibility.”

Mobile device barcode scanning delivers expanded efficiency for point-of-care, point-of-sale and logistics teams and extending the durability and longevity of a device helps cut costs and enhance productivity. Is there a downside to mobility?

Mobile devices can create unintended risks for patients, customers, and employees. Because mobile devices are handled by multiple employees to scan and manage sales and inventory, they also need to be able to withstand disinfection protocols and occasional drops. The CR7020 provides protection for these and other scenarios, keeping employees and devices safe.

The CR7020 case, like previous models, offers bi-directional data pass-through and an easily swappable, external battery power that more than doubles the life of an iPhone. Its flexible battery charging system includes multiple workspace preset options, which can be configured exactly how you need.

At a glance, the case indicates the battery’s charge status. In busy environments, the last thing you need is a team member guessing how much charge is left in a device. This, and many other features, make the CR7020 case a true standout for iPhone productivity.

CR7020 Protective Case Features

  • Bi-directional data pass-through
  • 5 or 10-bay battery chargers with configurations for any workspace
  • BatteryTrak™ application provides real-time battery health, deployment dates, cycle counts, and serial numbers for individual case monitoring
  • Hot-swappable 2,700 mAh external battery
  • Dragontrail™ screen protector
  • Secure and sealed, protects against damage as well as water and debris
  • CodeShield® Level 3 PVC-Free disinfectant-ready plastics
  • Compatible with iPhone 8 and iPhone SE (2020)
  • Code Complete service and extended warranty plans
  • Smart battery shows battery health with a visible fuel gauge
  • With iPhone, withstands multiple drops of 4’ (1.2 meters) to concrete

How Does the Mobile COVID-19 Tracking Solution Work?

The remote COVID-19 test site solution is ideal for healthcare and government organizations who have limited facilities to operate and test patients. Below is the framework on how the solution works:

  • Technician scans the ID card using a Honeywell CT60 mobile computer. The COVID-19 tracking software will then extract the patient information directly from the image using our advanced engine
  • The technician then verifies the information is correct and can edit each field if necessary
  • System will check for duplicate accounts
  • Technician records patient temperature and adds email, phone and notes (if required)
  • Information is sent to our central database hosted on the Microsoft Azure Platform
  • Technician enters pertinent virus tracking information for each patient, such as status (pending, negative, positive, inconclusive), temperature and notes (if required)
  • If there is a visit history the system will pull the information from the database if needed
  • The Honeywell CT60 mobile computer will then print crucial patient information directly to a nearby Bluetooth or Wi-Fi Honeywell RP4e mobile printer
  • The printer will create a label that is be taped onto the test vial
  • In parallel the patient information is sent to our cloud data base and an account is created

It’s important to note that once sent, the information is not stored on the mobile device for patient safety and security. The backend database is easily searchable and is centrally administered. Each location, area, state or country can have its personalized view. Only manager level and up can access the database with our secure access tiers.

What Do You Need for a Mobile COVID-19 Tracking Solution Work?

While all testing sites and equipment are different, here is a list of items required to successfully operate a mobile COVID-19 tracking solution:
