Retail, Hospitality and Service Professionals Can Better Engage With Consumers Using the Captuvo SL62 and iPad Mini Mobile Digital Device
May 7, 2014 (Newswire) - Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today announced its new Captuvo SL62 enterprise sled, an encasement that transforms an Apple® iPad mini into a customer engagement tool, has been launched to Asian, Australian and New Zealand retail, hospitality and field service professionals.
Building off Honeywell's successful Captuvo line, which includes the SL22 and SL42 encasements for fifth generation iPod touch® and iPhone® 5 devices, the SL62 helps employees look up inventory, scan barcodes and securely process payments, increasing customer engagement and improving mobile point-of-sale. It gives associates access to transaction data via the Web or mobile apps, providing an opportunity to upsell products and services and keep customers more engaged in the buying process.
The Captuvo SL62 is designed for all versions of the iPad mini, which offers a larger screen size than the iPod touch or iPhones. An optional magnetic stripe reader allows associates to check-out customers on the spot, whether in a retail stores or restaurants. Additionally, the Captuvo SL62 provides power to the iPad mini when it needs it most, which reduces downtime and maximises productivity.
"Captuvo SL62 was designed especially for the retail and food service industry to help store employees have the flexibility to make the shopping or dining experience as convenient and easy as possible for customers," said Jay Cho, Sales Director, Honeywell Scanning & Mobility Asia. "It allows employees to have technology at their fingertips at all times so they can quickly provide accurate store or product details, as well as finalise a sale anywhere in store and support BYOD applications during peak periods."
In addition to allowing associates to go "beyond the counter" and engage with consumers directly, the Captuvo SL62 can improve the gift registry process for brick-and-mortar retailers. Now, shoppers can use the device to scan products, look up information and reviews and add products to a registry as they walk the store. This customer-friendly design can lead to the potential elimination of gift registry kiosks.
Also an ideal solution for hospitality workers, the Captuvo SL62 gives cafe and restaurant owners the ability to facilitate point-of-sale transactions and manage inventory from one device. Food service staff can use the Captuvo SL62 to place orders, describe different menu options and quickly facilitate payment at the table. The Captuvo SL62 can be customized with the brand or restaurant's logo.
Equipped with second-to-none imaging capabilities and Honeywell's AdaptusTM 6.0 imaging technology, the Captuvo SL62 can accurately read most bar codes, including government issued IDs, coupons or loyalty club bar codes. The sleek and protective design is able to withstand multiple 4-foot drops.
