Synergix Ireland, the auto-ID and barcode division of Square One, has been appointed by Psion as distributor of the Psion NEO. Weighing around 275g, the Psion NEO is small, rugged, and cost-effective, providing equivalent functionality to larger devices and making it perfectly at home in environments as diverse as retail, postal, warehousing, and sports venues. It can withstand being dropped from 1.2 metres on to hard concrete, has an IP rating of 54 so is well-protected against dust and moisture, and operates in extreme temperatures from -10C to +50C.
Using a Windows-based operating system, the Psion NEO easily integrates with other devices and can be expanded to incorporate new technologies like RFID. As you'd expect there is a range of accessories available including a multi-unit docking station, pistol grip, RFID back pack and much more.
Psion prides itself on its ground-breaking business model known as 'open innovation', which addresses the problem of devices that quickly become obsolete due to the fast-changing world of technology. Keeping up often means buying new devices which is expensive and, for some, prohibitive. The Psion NEO, however, is a modular device that allows upgrading by changing components rather than the whole device. This modularity also means that users can buy exactly the features they need rather than a device packed with features they will never use.
John McMeeking, Psion's UK Managing Director commented: 'We're pleased to welcome Synergix into our network of distributors and are looking forward to further growing our handheld business, beginning with our NEO product, in a high priority market. We believe the team at Synergix not only share our goals, they will also prove another excellent addition to our distributor roster.'
Nick Lane, Business Development Manager at Synergix commented: 'Our relationship with Psion represents a tantalizing opportunity to partner with a company that offers some superb products, innovative ideas and has a prominent position in the market. It demonstrates our commitment to the mobile market and with the NEO in particular we are able to target some important verticals, particularly the retail sector.'
