CR4405 iPhone 5 barcode reading sled
One of our technology partners – Code Corporation – recently announced the release of the CR4405 iPhone 5 barcode reading sled. The CR4405 sled is a very compelling piece of hardware that will compliment one of the world’s most popular devices – the Apple iPhone 5.
The CR4405 sled will cost effectively, and quickly, convert your iPhone 5 into a mobile barcode reading solution. This a big deal. Instead of fiddling with two devices to scan barcodes and automatically collect data – you will now have one. No more messing with Bluetooth or a cabled connection between your phone and a barcode scanner. And, when coupled with Huzzard Systems custom application development services, the CR4405 unleashes your iPhone to become a very productive tool at work. Capitalizing on the CR4405 superior ability to read 1D, 2D and stacked barcode symobolgies the custom apps will turn your phone into a “work flow slayer.” You will collect data faster and more accurately.
Here is the biggest takeway: The CR4405 ability to scan 1D, 2D and stacked barcode is what sets the stage for tremendous value – for you, your processes and your clients. While existing smartphones can scan some barcodes after downloading a barcode scanning app, scanning and decoding success is varied. Lighting, reflectivity and barcode symbology all have to be right. Furthermore, parsing data out of 2D and stacked codes is impossible if you don’t have the proper scan engine. The CR4405 barcode reading sled and Huzzard custom apps changes all that.
A great example . . . if you deal with a client registration process, a client’s drivers license typically has a 2D barcode encoded with your client’s basic contact info that is underutilized by not scanning. Imagine the the positive impact on your clients when you can now scan the 2D barcode on their DL, decode the info, parse the data and automatically place the info in fields on an electronic registration form! No more having them speak their private contact information out loud for others in the area to hear; no more of you having to repeat the information out loud to confirm. Your registration process becomes faster and more accurate. They are happy – you are happy. Some other cool features of the CR4405 include:
- Replaceable and rechargeable battery cartridges make changing depleted batteries quick and easy
- Lightweight design combines easy-to-reach buttons with unobstructed view of the iPhone screen
- Bright, rectangular, blue LED aiming quickly and easily targets barcodes
- Multiple locking clips hold the phone in place, protecting it against damage and minimizing exposure to debris
- IP54 rated housing withstands harsh environments and consists of disinfectant ready plastic that will withstand frequent cleaning with chemicals
