Honeywell Helps Retailers Shorten Holiday Lines

Who likes lines? And this time of year, there are plenty of them. As retailers gear up for Black Friday, they know what consumers detest most—waiting in line.

Honeywell has created the right tools in order for retailers to shorten checkout time. The Honeywell Captuvo SL42 and SL22 are encasements for the Apple iPhone 5 and fifth generation iPod Touch mobile devices, respectively.

The encasements turn a standard, consumer-grade device into selling tools that enable workers to look up inventory, scan barcodes and securely process payment. No one has to wait in line when the checkout is brought to the shopper!

Both the Honeywell SL42 and SL22 feature Honeywell’s Adaptus 6.0 imaging technology, which accurately reads just about any barcode—even 1D barcodes shown on mobile devices, such as loyalty cards.

“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 Peter Fehl, vice president of global marketing for Honeywell Scanning & Mobility.

Hopefully, retailers will take note this holiday season and give the gift of no lines!
