Honeywell (NYSE: HON) has announced two new tools for retailers to shorten check out times and make shopping more personalized for customers and store owners.
Honeywell’s Captuvo SL42 and SL22 are encasements for the Apple iPhone 5 and fifth generation iPod Touch mobile digital devices, respectively, turning the consumer devices into selling tools that allow retail workers to look up inventory, scan barcodes and securely process payment, bringing the check out to the shopper so no one has to wait in line.
Both new products feature Honeywell Adaptus 6.0 imaging technology, which reads virtually any bar code, including coupons or loyalty club bar codes increasingly found on the reflective screens of mobile devices.
“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.
The Captuvo SL22 is now shipping, and the SL42 will ship this month, August.
