Variety Wholesalers To Implement Hand Held Products Mobile Computers In Retail Stores
Hand Held Products, Inc., a global leader in image-based data collection solutions for mobile applications, and systems integrator Integrated Solutions International announce that Variety Wholesalers will install 350 units of the Hand Held Products Dolphin® 7600 Mobile Computer in two of their store chains for in-store data collection applications.
Headquartered in Henderson, N.C., Variety Wholesalers operates approximately 500 retail stores, including the Maxway, Roses, Bargain Town and Super Dollar chains, in the Southeastern and Mid-Atlantic United States. Maxway and Roses will begin installing the 7600s in their stores starting in January.
The devices will be equipped with a data collection application written with ITScriptNet®, Z-Space Technologies, Inc.'s program development software. It will enable the retailers to validate user input, look up information against a 150,000-item file stored on the Dolphin 7600, place shelf replenishment orders, and transfer the collected data via batch mode to the central office, where it will seamlessly integrate with the back-end system.
"In addition to the ability to easily perform data collection applications, the 7600s with ITScriptNet will also enable the customer to cost-effectively add different applications over time," said Mike Sweeney, President, Integrated Solutions. "We're confident that Variety Wholesalers will see improvements in productivity at Maxway and Roses, and will eventually implement the 7600 across all of its stores."
"Variety Wholesalers needed a rugged device with an integrated scanner that's lightweight and easy to handle—the Dolphin 7600 will be the perfect solution for them," said Garrison Gomez, Vice President and General Manager of Mobility Systems, Hand Held Products. "Our mobile computer will be a dramatic improvement for the retailers, as they were previously using a large, heavy device with a tethered scanner. They'll now have the ability to scan and share data quickly and with ease."
Currently, Integrated Solutions and Z-Space Technologies are working together on application development and will pilot 10 devices in the stores before implementation begins.
With a compact and cost-effective design, the Dolphin 7600 offers workers comfortable, one-handed use. Featuring Adaptus® Imaging Technology 5.0, the 7600 can read any linear or 2D barcode and capture digital images. Advanced Full-Shift Power Management enables the 7600 to endure barcode reading and batch applications for an entire work-shift, delivering uninterrupted data processing and enhanced worker productivity while significantly reducing battery replacement costs. The 7600 combines the versatility of 802.11b/g and Bluetooth® wireless communication.For more information contact Hand Held Products at 1-800-582-4263, or visit www.HandHeld.com.
