An important multinational furniture company invests in a mobile computing solution with Datalogic Mobile

Bologna, 14 April, 2010 - A world renown furniture retailer has chosen the Skorpio™ to facilitate the handling & tracing of incoming goods. The investment amounts to several thousands of units in the company's furniture stores around the world.


The Skorpio™ was chosen among its competitors to be used in the company's new logistics system to handle goods flow. This handheld device offers a Windows operating system, simplified numeric keyboard, excellent ergonomics and extreme ruggedness. In addition, the Datalogic Green Spot assures good read feedback, even in noisy environments. This, along with its service program and management software, Wavelink® Avalanche, guarantees an effective, stable, secure and user-friendly solution in hundreds of stores every day.


The Skorpio™ also offers other advantages. The Ethernet 4-slot cradle is the most compact in its class, allowing the mobile computer to be recharged even in the most crowded areas of the warehouse. Thanks to this accessory, the Skorpio™ installed in-field can be remotely managed using the Wavelink® Avalanche™ console. The option of using the handheld terminal or the Gun model is also given. The furniture store can choose between these two options, based on its needs for the various store applications.


All these factors make the Skorpio™ the right solution for this company. Gian Paolo Fedrigo, CEO of Datalogic Mobile, specifies that the "Skorpio™ is a complete solution that will increase goods flow efficiency significantly. It fulfilled all the furniture company's requirements, including CCX certification, which was extremely important, considering that the furniture company uses Cisco access points. We are very happy to work together on this project with the world's largest furniture company and look forward to continuing this collaboration in the future."
