Honeywell Scanning and Mobility unveiled today a suite of four Voyager scanners, which are designed to help reduce checkout time, speed up loyalty program enrolment and age verification, as well as unlock the full potential of the customer's mobile shopping experience.
The first scanner, Voyager 1202G, is Honeywell's first of many battery-free wireless laser scanners. It provides the same aggressive linear barcode scanning performance as a wired scanner, but without the long recharge time, maintenance or environmental disposal issues associated with traditional batteries.
The second new solution is a Voyager 1602G Pocket 2D Bluetooth Scanner. According to Honeywell, its compact form makes it the perfect scanning companion to tablet-based retail POS systems.
For retailers that anticipate the need for area imaging in the future, such as scanning coupons off customers' smartphone screens, the Voyager 1450G tethered scanner and Voyager 1452G wireless scanner, deliver linear barcode scanning out of the box.
Both scanners are also available for upgrade to enable PDF and 2D barcode reading at the initial time of purchase, or at any point of time in the future.
"Mobile commerce continues to shape the retail industry across Asia Pacific and consumer shopping experience from on-line to off-line drives retailers' transformation. Retailers are feeling more pressure than ever from consumers to deliver faster and smoother in-store experiences," said Lynn Huang Freeman, head of marketing and strategy, Honeywell Scanning & Mobility Asia Pacific.
"With these new products, our goal is to give retail professionals the ability and freedom to select the right tools to enable innovative marketing programs and effortlessly run operations while improving the customer experience," she added.
