|Bologna, May 3, 2011 – The Datalogic Group completed installation of 750 Skorpio Gun™ mobile computers at the American superstore, Hastings Entertainment, through its controlled company Datalogic Mobile.
Hastings Entertainment is a leader in American chains for the sales of entertainment products. The company has 147 stores in 20 states. Books, movies, videogames and other multimedia products can be bought, rented or sold online or in the stores.
To manage storage and inventory processes at all the stores in a fast and efficient manner, Hastings needed a reliable mobile computer system that was easy to use. The ideal solution for the American company arrived with the Datalogic’s Skorpio Gun™.
The Skorpio Gun™ has proved to be a winning solution for Hastings Entertainment, not only because it reads bar codes quickly, but more importantly, because it provides immediate good read feedback with its Datalogic patented Green Spot technology. The Skorpio Gun™ handheld mobile computer is also light, compact, robust and reliable. It includes an integrated high performance laser reader and has an intuitive user interface. Its practical 38 key alphanumeric keypad, allowing fast data, code and description, entry is another added plus.
Kristi Wall, POS Installations Project Manager for Hastings Entertainment declared: “We did our research and when it came down to making a decision, Datalogic Mobile’s Skorpio Gun™ offered the most advantages and highest performance levels on the market. It’s simply the fastest mobile computer and it adapted to our information systems perfectly.”
Mauro Sacchetto, CEO of Datalogic commented: “With this new partnership, Datalogic consolidates its position as a leader in the Automatic Data Capture market, especially in a highly competitive market like America. This, once again, confirms the validity of our adopted strategies, among which our continuous investment in R&D, decisive sales actions, and strategic partnerships. Our strong inclination towards innovation has always distinguished Datalogic, a company that pays close attention to finding the best solutions for its customers and partners.”
