Sportsman’s Wearhouse deploying new mobile scanning accessory from Honeywell
New York -- Sporting goods retailer Sportsman’s Wearhouse is deploying a new tool from Honeywell’s Honeywell Scanning and Mobility group in time for the holiday shopping season. The chain will equip workers in its 46 stores with Honeywell’s new Captuvo SL22 for iPod Touch mobile digital devices.
“The Honeywell Captuvo SL22 is a great fit for our low-key shopping environment: it extends our workers’ product and inventory expertise, and is much easier for customers and our workers to use than a traditional aisle-based check-out lane,” said Mike Van Orden, chief technology officer, Sportsman’s Warehouse, Midvale, Utah. “And because it’s based on the Apple iOS, our employees already are familiar with the user interface, so there is very little training needed, even for temporary or seasonal help.”
Honeywell’s new 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.
