Mobile data collection for retail
Scan and process data at any location
Digitalisation in retail and wholesale is advancing at a rapid pace and the market is highly competitive. Fast response times, combined with precise data transmission, make all the difference here in terms of customer satisfaction - and ultimately also turnover. To score points against the competition, it's all about having the right technology - especially when it comes to mobile data collection. With its high-quality scanners, DENSO WAVE ensures that the work of man and machine goes hand in hand. To make numerous data capture applications in retail efficient.
Digitalisation in retail: advanced scanners for mobile data capture
Capture and process data in real time where it is generated: Mobile data capture solutions are becoming increasingly important with digital progress in retail. After all, they enable faster and more secure order entry and processing. In this way, retailers can organise their purchasing processes efficiently, ensure direct availability of products and offer immediate support by employees. This also makes purchasing processes much more attractive for customers.
What is mobile data entry?
Mobile data entry (MDE) is the collection of data away from a stationary computer workstation. Data can be collected independently of location via barcodes, keyboard entries and transponders with appropriate devices. Mobile computers or mobile scanners or hand-held scanners as well as RFID scanners are often used to collect data in retail. After scanning, they usually transmit the data via WLAN, Bluetooth or an interface (e.g. USB) to the higher-level system. MDE 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 removal and stocktaking.
The advantages of mobile data collection at a glance

- Real-time database
- Avoidance of duplicate data capture
- Avoidance of media discontinuities
- Avoidance of unnecessary journeys or trips
- Prevent data transmission errors
- Checking the plausibility of data entry
- Uncovering potential savings
Securely scan inventory and optimise order processing
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 be the decisive competitive advantage here. With our easy-to-use MDE devices, retailers and wholesalers can reduce sources of error when recording information. In addition, up-to-date data helps to keep stock 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.
Robust MDE devices from DENSO: drop-resistant to temperature-resistant
DENSO devices are characterised by their quality and durability, not only in terms of the technology used to 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 fulfil several requirements at the same time, such as dust-tightness, temperature resistance and particularly long battery life.
Mobile data capture devices for smooth business processes - the cost factor
Time- and cost-optimising factors play a very important role in the business processes of every company. In almost every business process, a range of data is generated that not only needs to be captured, but also processed and managed. With MDE solutions, the data can be recorded and transferred directly to the merchandise management system used. The mobile capture of a lot of data directly at the source, without manual intermediate steps, brings more data transparency into the business processes. Various mobile data capture devices can be used for this purpose.
