paper-based sales and inventory tracking. You
increase profitability by reducing pricing mistakes,
minimizing shrinkage and providing better visibility
into fundamental business processes. Because
the Symbol LS9203i is both a handheld and a
presentation scanner, your employees are able to
quickly switch between hands-free and handheld
mode to scan bar codes easily, maximizing their
productivity. You also help reduce injuries, because
your employees and customers don’t need to lift or
maneuver heavy items for scanning.
Use right out of the box
The Symbol LS9203i comes complete with cables,
and in most cases, all you need to do is simply plug
in the device. Any required customized configuration
can be completed quickly and easily with a quick
scan of a provided set of programming bar codes.
Designed with multiple on-board interfaces and
universal cables, the Symbol LS9203i provides
flexible host connectivity and easy migration to new
hosts — without requiring the replacement
of scanners.
Enhance customer service
This easy-to-use scanner allows your employees to
work more effectively with customers, no matter
how long they’ve been on the job. Faster checkout,
gives workers more time to assist customers. The
small footprint leaves plenty of space at the register
for “impulse purchase” displays to encourage
additional sales. And, with the capability to more
accurately track customer behavior, inventory
management is improved, ensuring that the right
product is stocked at the right time to protect
against lost sales.
