Varlink, the York-based Mobile Computing and Data Capture hardware distributor is pleased to support Grabba International in the promotion of its latest range of mobile computing accessories enabling handheld PDAs and SmartPhones to be used as business data capture tools.

Grabba offers bar code scanners, smart card readers, magnetic stripe readers, RFID readers and combination readers which combine two or more of the above technologies into one device. Grabba devices can be used with an increasing range of corporate PDAs and SmartPhones to assist business owners to reduce costs, increase staff productivity and increase accuracy, immediacy and efficiency in data capture.

Grabba devices, which are strong, rugged yet elegant, are compatible with an increasing range of SmartPhones and PDAs including HP iPAQs and HTC units which are also available from Varlinks product line up. The company recently extended its product line up and its unitary technology and combination scanners and readers are now compatible with the latest HTC and HP iPAQ PDAs and SmartPhones, as well as hand-held devices from Palm, T-Mobile, Vodafone, O2, Dell, Sharp and the Symbol Motorola MC35.

Specifically, Grabba barcode scanners compliment HP iPAQs and HTC SmartPhones to meet the growing demand for adding single-handed and affordable scanning to handheld computers.

Grabba attachments easily lock with compatible PDAs and SmartPhones, have a long battery life and a low overall cost of ownership, including the ability to retrofit hardware to suit an upgraded or newly purchased PDA or SmartPhone. The devices can be easily removed and reattached when the user wishes to use the PDA or SmartPhone independently.

Used to meet a growing number of data capture applications in a wide variety of industry sectors including education, health, transportation, banking, event management and retail, Grabba scanners and readers provide immediacy, efficiency and accuracy in capturing many types of business data. 

Examples of uses for Grabba attachments include helping reduce labour costs and boosting revenue by tracking sales and inventory, anywhere, anytime, streamlining ordering and stock taking, increasing staff and stock security, managing secure identity and location access programs and facilitating customer loyalty programs.
