Those who are using a data collection device to handle e-citations are seeing major improvements in productivity, accuracy and overall effectiveness. The ability to capture varying amounts of data through a bar code has changed the landscape for Law Enforcement, and technology is providing them with an opportunity to become more informed, more efficient and provide safer communities.
Have you ever thought about the amount of time and paper we’ve saved with the electronic age? I remember the days of the fax machine when I had to go through so many steps to get information to someone. Type it up, print it out, fax it over. Then came email
Formed as Brown School in 1838, Duke University has since grown into a community of more than 8,000 employees and almost 15,000 students occupying an 8,600-acre campus. As each scholastic year’s roster of freshman enroll and seniors graduate, key to organizing the campus activities of this large and ever-changing group of Duke citizens is the DukeCard, a comprehensive ID that is used for completing purchases and arranging services within the campus and surrounding community of Durham, North Carolina, as well as more traditional identification functions.
The DukeCard currently accounts for up to 600,000 transactions per day via 1,800 card readers, many of which are built into hand-held computers that
Football season is about halfway over and my favorite team is not doing as bad as they usually do. Maybe there is hope their losing curse/streak is almost over. No I am not going to tell you which team it is, but I will give you a hint. Fans of my team will always be diehard fans no matter how their season turns out and we have undying hope…they will win a Super Bowl, regardless of how many times they have almost won it. To this day, my family refuses to talk about when they ALMOST won…multiple times.

With more than 10 billion devices now connected to the Internet – up from a mere 200 million in the year 2000 – projected to exceed 50 billion “things” by 2020 as the Internet of Things transitions to the “Internet of Everything,” cyber-security challenges are increasing exponentially.
For those who commit fully, the benefits of the Internet of Things far outweigh the costs. But all those positives carry with them a few negatives, some of which are represented by potential cyber vulnerabilities of connected devices, including card printers. Zebra Technologies’ recent article, Stay Connected while Staying Safe: How to Avoid Cyber Vulnerabilities on Network Connected Card Printers,
Witches, ghosts, pumpkins, and candy are all words that you can associate with Halloween. I mean who doesn’t love Halloween? You get to dress up and get free candy! I always loved trick-or-treating and then trading with my friends and family for the best candy…Reese’s, M&Ms, and Junior Mints. And you can’t forget about that feeling afterwards of you knowing you ate too much, but you didn’t care because it is the one time of the year that it is socially acceptable to eat 8 pounds of candy and your parents let you stay out late.
For the past two years, Jimmy Kimmel has done a segment called “I told
The Dolphin 70e Black is “cool” enough for customer engagement and easy enough to use and carry that service isn’t interrupted.
We’re always looking for ways to do things faster, but efficiency is a key player in the process. With the busiest shopping days of the year heading this way, retailers want to make sure it’s smooth sailing for consumers. For many, that means integrating a mobile device for POS.
Luckily, with tighter budgets and fewer resources, technology is helping the retailer find ways to increase worker productivity at the point-of-sale, on the sales floor and in the warehouse to make the customer experience more satisfying. As more and more
Small. Light. Portable. Simple. These words have quickly become part of our vocabulary in an age of “can’t wait” “what’s next” and “I want it now”. For some, it’s just for convenience. For others, it’s a whole new world of efficiency when a new product comes along that seems leaps and bounds above the rest. When was the last time you picked up a pencil? Or typed in a 12-digit SKU? Hopefully it’s been a while. If not, you need to save yourself and read on…
The Xenon 1900 is Honeywell’s sixth generation of area-imaging technology and we can honestly say it does not disappoint! This device is flying off
In retail today, the competition is fierce. Considerable changes in customer expectations over the years have put increasing pressure on the customer service function. In order to differentiate themselves, retailers are working hard to find ways to improve customer interactions in innovative and techno-savvy formats. They are also looking to create high-performance operational environments as resources become more scarce. Some of the areas of improvement include:
Instant access to product information
Customer checkout at the point of decision
Satisfying customer requests with real-time answers
Visibility of on-hand inventory
Because the ways in which customers communicate, learn and make decisions has changed over the years, the competition to continue to keep consumers engaged has increased.

In these days of direct deposit and PayPal, it’s increasingly rare that I receive payment via paper check. But when I do, I needn’t travel to a brick-and-mortar bank or even an ATM kiosk. Instead, using the bank’s smartphone app, I simply photograph the front and back of the endorsed check and my deposit is completed instantly. The process is so fool proof that it has even worked seamlessly for this fool, without a single hiccup.
Mobile devices are rapidly changing even the most mundane aspects of our lives, and retail is no exception, a reality explored in Honeywell’s recent white paper, Mobile Marketing: Retail’s Next Frontier. That same
