Solution for Repetitive Stress Injuries

Use barcode scanning for mobile workforce to reduce PDA injuries. Thumb RSI (Repetitive Stress Injuries) are well known for heavy and frequent computer keyboard users. This issue extends now to mobile devices, especially since most times the thumbs are used to input ALL data on the device (unlike keyboards where the keys occur across all of the fingers). Barcode scanning allows input of many digits with a singlebutton push (or no button push at all when using hands-free scanning). This means using a barcode scanner makes it possible to significantly reduce personal injuries related to data entry, especially for mobile applications.

SerialMagic enables the KDC200 Bluetooth scanners on all major mobile platforms including BlackBerry, Symbian Series 60, Windows Mobile Professional/Classic/Pocket PC (touch screen), Windows Mobile Smartphone (non-touch screen) and PalmOS 5. SerialMagic is also available for Windows 8/7/2008/Vista/2003/XP/2000. See powerful ways to use SerialMagic.

Grid-In-Hand® Mobile Grid with KDC200 for Security Inspections

A recent addition was made to our security department, using the KDC200 mobile wireless laser barcode scanner with Grid-In-Hand® Mobile Grid software. This has taken our security department to a new level of patrol quality and performance. Our security personnel are required to perform 17 preventative maintenance tasks and safety Inspections throughout the work week along with their directed patrol duties. This was beginning to become a very tedious record keeping process and time consuming work process when having to carry a clip board with you everywhere you go. We have now bar coded each of the 17 PM’s and are now working at a far more proficient level and with secure mobile data upload we are able to increase the supervisors efficiencies as well. The estimated work related cost savings for our department is approximately $6,000 dollars per year in record keeping and employee labor. We are proud to be Serialio.com customers. I recommend this equipment and software to all security professionals
