Solution for Repetitive Stress Injuries

Use barcode scanning with your mobile workforce to reduce employee injuries. Thumb RSI (Repetitive Strain Injuries) is well known in heavy and frequent computer keyboard users. This issue now extends to mobile devices, especially since most often the thumbs are used to input ALL data into the device (unlike keyboards where the keystrokes occur across all of the fingers). Barcode & RFID scanning allow the input of many characters with a single button push (or no button push at all when using hands-free scanning). Barcode & RFID scanners make it possible to significantly reduce personal injuries related to data entry, especially for mobile applications.

    No Competition Even Comes CLOSE!

    I recently implemented wireless scanning of inventory. Our ERP software uses a web interface to input data into the inventory. Upon initial research, I was distraught by the costs of the motorola and dolphin wireless barcode scanners. At $2,000 and up it was a tough sell to get the number of scanners I needed. Then I found and their Scanfob® Brand Bluetooth barcode scanner. The thought of pairing a barcode scanner with an iPod touch to scan inventory was exciting, the cost was a no-brainer and I picked one up to test it out. For our first inventory on the new system I was lucky enough to get my hands on a couple evaluation units of the "industry standard" scanners to test out up against my Scanfob® 200x Bluetooth laser barcode scanner. I was shocked by how difficult the other units were to configure and use, especially up against the iPod with Scanfob® 200x unit. I had multiple people try out each of the test units, as well as the Scanfob® 200xEvery single person chose the Scanfob® 200x as their prefered device. In total we saved two and a half to three days time by scanning the inventory as opposed to manually entering it. But that is not the best point! We saved approximately $1,400 each (including the price of an iPod touch). In total we saved $4,200 for the three handheld units we wanted scanning material transactions. We now get the benefit of using iOS's user friendly interface with the Scanfob® 200x barcode scanners. There is no competition that even comes close. I would recommend to anyone looking at buying a wireless barcode scanner, try out a Scanfob® 200x against the other units, and you will see that I am not leading you wrong. Please tell everyone this was written off the cuff, and I did not stretch the truth one bit. I appreciate your great product, and I will be buying more in the future. Thank you.
