Datalogic’s Magellan 9800i wins Innovation Award at RBTE

Posted March 28, 2016

Datalogic has announced that it was presented with the Innovation Award at Retail Business Technology Expo 2016.

From a shortlist of sixteen finalists, Datalogic’s Magellan 9800i scanner/scale was selected by a judging panel of industry experts and retailers, including Marks & Spencer and White Stuff, for its ability to read digitally watermarked barcodes that are invisible to the human eye. In describing the winner the judges said “This new concept could truly be regarded as revolutionary. The invisible watermark barcode could eventually replace the long serving barcode as we know it and the potential to speed up all forms of point of sale checkout is enormous.”

The Magellan 9800i scanner’s ability to scan digitally watermarked barcodes means that checkout staff, and customers using self-checkout, no longer need to worry about the orientation of items as they pass them across the scanner. This dramatically increases productivity at the point of sale. The Magellan 9800i scanner holds the Guinness World Record for the fastest time to scan and bag 50 items with digitally watermarked barcodes.

Mike Doyle, Regional Director UK and Ireland for Datalogic said, “We are delighted that Datalogic and the Magellan 9800i has been recognized by such an elite panel of retail technology experts, especially as we were up against such strong competition. As a supplier to eighteen of the world’s top 25 retailers, Datalogic is committed to driving innovation that helps retailers to not only work more efficiently but that also enables them to deliver a superior customer experience.”

Matt Bradley, RBTE’s Event Director concluded “We know that our exhibitors at RBTE have some amazing innovations that can dramatically change and improve retailers’ businesses. The innovation trail and awards is an excellent platform for our visitors to see the very best solutions, products and services that are shaping the way the retail industry will evolve and Datalogic’s Magellan scanner is a great example of that innovation.”


Which Mobile Operating System is Best for You?

Posted February 29, 2016

Selecting the best rugged mobile solution to support enterprise workflows and applications is anything but simple given the multitude of options available to organizations. With a myriad of choices available comes a certain degree of flexibility and opportunity to leverage corporate strengths while focusing on areas that need improvement/greater efficiency or to further differentiate. Along with the flexibility these options provide, comes the arduous task of evaluating mobility choices and properties associated with them: form factor, operating system, functionality, features, connectivity, security and a line of business (LOB) software solution to guide employees through productive execution of daily tasks.

Organizations have clear, hard requirements of enterprise LOB mobility solutions: 3-5 year product life cycle, security, reliability, support, and a full complement of accessories. All organizations are keenly aware of what downtime means in terms of productivity and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) associated with LOB solutions.

This whitepaper will explore one critical piece of the enterprise mobility selection challenge: Operating Systems with implied development options for enterprise mobility devices.

Introduction

Ruggedized mobile computers have been driving mobility in the workplace for decades. The evolution of platforms embracing new and maturing technologies are creating new markets and opportunities for enhancing user experience, creating efficiencies and improving productivity in the workplace. One of the key factors for the success of mobility in the enterprise has been Microsoft’s embedded platforms providing security, stability and reliability. This whitepaper covers current Microsoft platforms as well as the paradigm shift we are experiencing with Android’s popularity. It will also discuss Datalogic’s mission to actively invest and research the best options and platforms to enhance and guarantee enterprise customers’ mobility success and profitability.

By Microsoft definition, Windows Embedded platforms target specialized devices such as ruggedized mobile computers, ATMs, Kiosks and others. Windows Embedded CE kernel had been at the heart of Windows Embedded CE and Windows Embedded Handheld (Windows Mobile), both targeting specialized rugged handheld devices that are mission critical for line of business (LOB) applications. Windows, on the other hand, focuses on general purpose computing such as PCs, laptops and tablets and targets both enterprise and consumer environments.

Make Configuring your Scanner Easy with Datalogic’s Aladdin Software

Posted February 15, 2016

Many people think a barcode scanner simply reads the code and transmits the data embedded in the barcode. While this is the most basic operation of a scanner many of them can manipulate the scanned data in a variety of ways to fit whatever your application may need. This is often referred to as advanced data formatting.

Datalogic scanners are some of the most programmable models and their Aladdin software makes setting them up a breeze. This video is a great introduction to the Aladdin software and some of the things you can configure with your scanner.


Datalogic Memor X3 Accelerates Workflows at Siemens

Posted February 4, 2016

With approximately 343,000 employees in over 200 countries, Siemens is one of the world’s largest producers of energy-efficient, resource-saving technologies and a leading supplier of systems for power generation and transmission. In large-scale enterprises such as this, warehouse administration challenges employees with rigid demands. A great number of storage areas with several products coming in and going out at any given time require precise management. The more movement within the warehouse, the harder it is to keep track of operations and maintain accuracy.

The Challenge
Siemens had to confront this issue in its warehouse in Nuremberg, Germany. The company wanted more flexibility to make warehouse processes easier and reduce operating time, ultimately preventing unnecessary additional costs. Previously, employees manually performed several time-consuming steps to assign production orders to storage bins in the SAP program. Siemens wanted to simplify the process for employees and ensure secure data capture using bar codes.

The Solution
Using requirements of faster, easier processes and secure data capture, Michael Powell, the head of order processing at Siemens, contacted Systemhaus SA.SS. Datentechnik AG, a solutions specialist in printing and identification technology. SA.SS Datentechnik AG recommended the Memor X3 mobile computer from Datalogic as the hardware solution that would best fit the company’s needs. These mobile computers are equipped with a Windows operating system and a 2D imager that captures all barcode types, from linear to stacked to 2D codes, including GS1 DataBar. One of the Memor X3 mobile computer’s greatest advantages is its compact size. This fully equipped mobile computer with touchscreen, Wi-Fi connectivity, imager and large memory fits in any shirt or trouser pocket.

Datalogic PowerScan PM8300 Improves Tracking Processes for King Living

Posted October 27, 2015

Datalogic PowerScan PM8300 Barcode ScannersDavid and Gwen King began designing foam furniture from their home in Australia in 1977, selling the few items they created at the local Paddy’s Market.  Customers really liked the furniture, and year after year this small family business grew and expanded introducing new designs, materials and models.  Today, King Living is a major player in the Australian furniture industry with 14 showrooms and 5 depots across the country.  The company has been recognized with several awards and has been featured at famous events such as Vanity Fair’s Oscars After Party.  King Living attributes its success to the company’s commitment to uniqueness and excellence.  The company always guarantees high quality products with a touch of style.

The Challenge
In order to keep up with demand and ensure customer satisfaction, King Living must have smooth running processes in all aspects of the business, especially regarding product management and tracking.  Therefore, the company wanted to streamline the work flow and started looking for a solution that could provide real-time information on stock levels and locations throughout the warehouse.  It was also essential that the solution be implemented with the least amount of disruption to day-to-day business activities.

The Solution
Datalogic’s partner, BCDS Solutions, an industry leader and specialist in barcode and RFID solutions, suggested using the PowerScan PM8300 rugged industrial scanner from Datalogic with a materials tracking system.  The PowerScan scanner is the smallest and fastest device on the market for this type of application, offering outstanding performance and unyielding reliability.  Its narrow band radio communications with Datalogic’s STAR Cordless System provides the key to increased productivity and flexibility in the workplace.  BCDS took this optimum solution and integrated it to suit the specific needs of King Living.  The company provided a commissioning service so the scanners were ready to use out of the box, along with simplified user instructions.  Once integration was complete, the PowerScan PM8300 scanner went to work.

The PowerScan PM8300 scanners have become invaluable throughout the facility for tracking, identification, and picking purposes.  The device reads the bar code on an item and enters the information into an in-house developed program that manages and tracks it from the production line through the warehouse and on to the customer.  The system shows the last scan of the item so staff can tell customers exactly where it was located.  Using a special label specifically designed for picking, the company makes an instant count of all its items available in real time.  Stock levels, item whereabouts, accountability, product history, and KPI figures are calculated using the PowerScan PM8300 scanners.

Results
Since deploying the PowerScan PM8300 devices with the tracking system, missing items have been reduced from approximately 12 items per day to an average of 2 per day.  The resulting missing items can be attributed mostly to human error.  Picking time for delivery order runs has dropped from 3 hours per truck to 1 hour, 45 minutes.  Other advantages have also been noted with the staff experiencing less stress due to diminished missing items.  The PowerScan PM8300 industrial scanner and tracking system have won the praises of management; managers cannot imagine going back to a system without it.  The system works so well that King Living requires all its partners to use it as well.
