Varlink, York-based mobile computing and data capture specialist distributor, now offers the new Honeywell Captuvo SL62 Enterprise Sled for Apple iPad Mini. Varlink says of the device:
The Captuvo SL62 transforms the Apple iPad Mini into an enterprise-ready device for those working in the retail, hospitality and field service industries, allowing them to look up inventory, scan barcodes and securely process payments from any location. This can increase customer engagement and improve mobile point-of-sale, providing the retailer with the opportunity to upsell products and services thus engaging customers more within the buying process.
The 1D and 2D barcode scanner also provides customers with an enhanced shopping experience, allowing them to scan products, look up information and add products to a 'wish list' as they walk in the store.
The integrated, easy-to-use scanner also greatly increases throughput and worker productivity. The Captuvo SL62 makes it possible for the Apple iPad Mini to be used in retail warehouse applications, strengthening the device with a 1.2m drop resistance. Without the Captuvo, the tablet would fail to withstand the daily rigour of the harsh environment, resulting in downtime and loss of profit.
Its optional magnetic stripe reader allows associates to serve customers and process secure payments on the spot, providing a quicker and more efficient service.
MPoS (Mobile POS) is on the rise in stores as retailers want customers to become more interactive with their shopping habits and enhance their shopping experience as a whole. Using the Captuvo SL62, store staff can take the checkout to the customer and provide the service they need there and then, drastically reducing queues at manned checkouts.
Lightweight and ergonomic, the Captuvo SL62 can be used throughout the shift, particularly for those working long hours, without the strain of carrying a heavy device. Hospitality workers can benefit from the ability to facilitate point-of-sale transactions, take customers' orders and offer menu options.
The Captuvo SL62 is the latest model to be added to Varlink's growing Honeywell portfolio of rugged handhelds, scanners and mobile computers, all of which offer IP ratings of between 41 and 67.
The integration of Honeywell and Metrologic in 2008 allowed Honeywell to become a top player in the market sector, bringing together Metrologic's innovative retail scanning range with Honeywell's already successful handheld devices.
