Are you using an iPad as a business tool for mPOS, Merchandising or Stock Management?

By Anna Meens, EMEA Distribution and Business Development Manager, Socket Mobile.

Overwhelmingly the most popular solution demonstrated by Socket Mobile at RBTE earlier this month was the 8Ci slimline Apple certified Bluetooth barcode scanner neatly attached to the back of an iPad mini providing quick, reliable and accurate barcode scanning powered by an impressive two-day battery life.

Add to this the ability to easily detach the 8Ci from the iPad mini for a lightweight handheld scanning solution which while still connected via Bluetooth to the host device frees you up to continue scanning while the tablet is put down or docked in a stand.

"The beauty of the solution is its simplicity. Attendees at RBTE were amazed at the versatility of the 8Ci and how well it worked both as a single handed solution while attached to the iPad mini, then quickly detaching the scanner to be worn around the neck on the lanyard as a two handed solution." Steve Jones - UK Sales Manager.
