The Advantages of The ROV Barcode Scanner
Leading department stores and supermarkets often change prices either weekly or monthly. Each time there is a price change it is impossible to manually change price tags on each item. Customers are often seen carrying items to cash counters for price checks which is quite a hassle. Barcode scanners enable businesses to collect price data on any computing platform in a simple and affordable manner.
They are ideal for businesses with huge customer base as they help save valuable time and avoid the hassle of price checks. Employees need not leave their cash drawers for price checks or send another employee to find the price with angry customers having to wait in long lines.
There are different types of barcode scanners such as the fixed mount and the portable handheld scanners. The handheld barcode scanner is portable hence more convenient as it provides greater accessibility to employees enabling to easily reach big items kept in shopping carts instead of lifting them out.
Customers and employees appreciate handheld products because they are convenient and easy to use. The wired barcode scanner provides limited access since it cannot be stretched all the way. Fixed mount barcode scanners cannot be moved they are fixed in one place and the item being scanned needs to be moved around right in front of the reader.
Handheld barcode scanners are powered by a fully charged battery which can scan up to 20,000 scans or remain charged for about 30 hours. The range of handheld scanners is one hundred and sixty feet whereas wired scanners have a range of about 5 feet. The hand held scanners are plugged into the system through a USB plug which instantly connects the scanner to the port station without the need of any barcode software.
