Capture and process data in real time where it is generated: Mobile data capture solutions are becoming increasingly important as digital advances in retail. After all, they enable faster and more secure order entry and processing. In this way, retailers can organize their purchasing processes efficiently, ensure direct availability of products and offer immediate support from employees. This also makes purchasing processes much more attractive for customers.

Mobile data capture is the collection of data away from a stationary computer workstation. Data can be recorded independently of location via barcodes, keyboard entries and transponders with corresponding devices. Mobile computers or mobile scanners or handheld scanners as well as RFID scanners are often used to collect data in retail. After scanning, they usually transmit the data to the higher-level system via WLAN, Bluetooth or an interface (e.g. USB). HHT is often used in industrial, production, retail and wholesale companies. The latter benefit from mobile data collection especially in the areas of goods storage, goods retrieval and inventory.

In trade - whether retail or wholesale - the inventory is the largest and therefore a very important investment. Controlling it optimally and maintaining a precise overview at all times can provide the decisive competitive advantage here. With our easy-to-use HHT, retailers as well as wholesalers can reduce sources of error when recording information. In addition, up-to-date data helps to keep inventory levels as tight as possible and to react at the right time. As a result, by using mobile scanners, you always have the right goods at the right time at the point of sale and improve customer satisfaction.

The devices from DENSO are particularly characterized by their quality and durability. This applies not only to the technology used to reliably read 1D and 2D codes and RFID tags. We also attach great importance to the robustness of our devices. All our products have to undergo strict quality tests and we are only satisfied when everything is really right. Depending on the requirements, we offer specific scanners that are, for example, particularly resistant to drops or water. Or they meet several requirements at once, such as dust-tightness, temperature resistance and particularly long battery life.

Mobile data capture devices for smooth business processes.

Time- and cost-optimizing factors play a very important role in the business processes of any company. In almost every business process, a range of data is generated that not only has to be recorded, but also processed and managed. With mobile data capture solutions, the data can be captured and transferred directly to the enterprise resource planning system used. The mobile capture of a lot of data directly at the source, without manual intermediate steps, brings more data transparency to the business processes. Various mobile data collection devices can be used for this purpose.
