Honeywell's Captuvo SL42 and SL22 are encasements for the Apple iPhone 5 and fifth generation iPod Touch mobile digital devices, respectively, turning the consumer devices into selling tools that allow retail workers to look up inventory, scan barcodes and securely process payment, bringing the check out to the shopper so no one has to wait in line.
Both new products feature Honeywell Adaptus 6.0 imaging technology, which accurately reads virtually any bar code, including coupons or loyalty club bar codes increasingly found on the reflective screens of mobile devices.
"Mobile POS enablers like our Captuvo line are quickly changing the way customers and stores do business, and you will continue to see innovation from Honeywell in this area," said Tony Nasr, Regional Director - Middle East & Africa at Honeywell Scanning & Mobility. "What sets apart Honeywell devices is our technology with the industry's best scanning capability, security features and durability."
"The Honeywell Captuvo SL22 is a great fit for the Middle East's low-key shopping environment: it extends workers' product and inventory expertise, and is much easier for customers and workers to use than a traditional aisle-based check-out lane," continued Nasr. "And because it's based on the Apple iOS, we find our client's employees already are familiar with the user interface, so there is very little training needed, even for temporary or seasonal help."
The Captuvo SL22 is now shipping across the Middle East, and the SL42 will ship this month.
