Eugene, OR – June 3, 2009 – Datalogic Scanning is pleased to announce that Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc. is among the latest companies to select the Gryphon™ 2D Plus Imager for use in its 520-store Southeastern chain. The Gryphon 2D Plus Imager, supplied by the SAM Group, a Datalogic Scanning Value Added Reseller, is helping Winn-Dixie improve upon its processes related to the sale of age-restricted items.
“With the new Gryphon 2D Plus Imager, we are now able to provide a higher level of service to our customers by speeding up the check-out process,” said Robin Miller, director of communications for Winn-Dixie. “The Gryphon 2D Plus Imager not only increases scanning speed, but it also enables our Associates to easily scan large items on the bottom of the shopping cart.”
“We are pleased to offer this product and service to Winn-Dixie,” said Marc Lynn, Vice-President Sales and Marketing for SAM Group. “In addition to the time-savings customers and cashiers will experience with the age-verification system, the Gryphon 2D Plus Imager is also equipped with the ability to read the new GS1 DataBar codes which are beginning to appear on produce and other variable weight items.”
Age-Verification using Drivers’ Licenses
“Retailers who sell regulated goods such as alcohol and tobacco must adhere to federal AAMVA standards to verify customer drivers’ license data, including age, date-of-birth, and license expiration date,” said Glen Feeley, Vice President, Sales - the Americas, for Datalogic Scanning. “Enabling retailers to comply with these regulations, the Gryphon 2D Plus Imager used in conjunction with Datalogic’s DL parsing logic, which is part of the Datalogic Aladdin™ software configuration program, eliminates manual data entry, increases efficiency at the retail point-of-sale, and prevents errors in the sale of controlled items.”
