Symbol Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:SBL), The Enterprise Mobility Company, today introduced the LS9203, a value-priced bar code scanner offering performance and reliability in a cost-effective scanning solution. The LS9203 broadens Symbols scanner portfolio by introducing a new presentation scanner to emerging markets and small and mid-size retailers providing increased productivity and real-time data capture capabilities for enterprise mobility systems.
Designed for applications where counter space is at a premium, the LS9203 scanner delivers increased durability and ergonomic design in an attractive and compact footprint. The new LS9203 scanner incorporates omnidirectional scanning, eliminating the need to orient the bar code for faster and more accurate read rates. Potential end-users include small retailers, customers replacing paper-based accounting of inventory, and store owners seeking a better idea of what is selling to adjust stock according to demand.
The new LS9203 bar code scanner is designed for small retailers and local neighborhood merchants, such as convenience stores, hardware stores, card stores and boutique shops, that need a capable scanning solution with minimal investments, said Bob Sanders, vice president and general manager of Symbols advanced data capture division. By building on our rich advanced data capture heritage, we are providing todays smaller retailers with the enterprise mobility tools necessary to improve customer service, increase customer face time, and reduce checkout time.
The new LS9203 scanner improves operational efficiencies by enabling accurate and fast reading of bar codes to reduce customer checkout time. For added flexibility, users can easily switch between hands-free and handheld mode enabling store associates to efficiently scan hard-to-reach bar codes, such as those on large or bulky items that cannot be lifted to counter level. The LS9203 scanner features built-in shock mounts for increased durability, as well as multiple interface support and universal cables for investment protection.
"Symbol's affordable new LS9203 puts a quality scanner in reach of all retailers regardless of their size," said Al Stoeberl, vice president of sales and marketing, Service Stations Computer Systems, Inc.
