Cheetah Software Services has announced it has added support for the Opticon H-Series ruggedized smartphones, available from Ryzex. The Opticon H-Series devices combine Windows Mobile-based smartphones and Opticon’s laser scanning technology to allow for integration of barcode-based data capture. Cheetah offers Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) logistics solutions.
“Cheetah supports a wide variety of handheld devices, from simple Java- and GPS-enabled cell phones to rugged PDA devices with signature capture and barcode scanning,” said Stephan Karczag, Cheetah’s vp of sales & marketing. “Adding support for the Opticon H-Series smartphones enhances our solutions by integrating advanced barcode scanning and application support in a series of ruggedized devices.”
By providing a familiar Windows Mobile environment, the devices support 1D and 2D scanning options to capture a variety of barcode formats. The H-Series offers an IP 54 rating. Drivers can capture electronic signatures at the point of delivery that are transmitted in real time and made visible internally and on customer websites.
