Barcode Scanning Tablets

Throughout various enterprise applications across the world (including warehousing, field service, transportation), traditional handheld barcode scanners are being replaced by lightweight, rugged tablets. Not just because the upfront costs can be less, but because those rugged tablets can do barcode scanning plus any other applications that are completed on a Windows-based platform. It extends the functionality of the device in to other parts of the business where productivity and efficiency improvements may be needed.

Why is barcode scanning necessary? It fills the need for accurate, timely capture and use of inventory data, with applications from the checkout line in-store to the complex inventory management systems of major enterprise and government organizations.
