Enterprise-Ready Rugged Built-In Barcode Scanners


ASAP Systems, a leading provider of barcode inventory systems, announced today that it will now offer a line of enterprise-grade cases with integrated laser barcode scanning capabilities for select Apple mobile devices.

“We wanted to give our customers a distinct advantage when it comes to barcode scanning and data collection,” said Elie Touma, CEO of ASAP Systems. “With the proliferation of BYOD hardware, this makes for a powerful combination that lowers cost and improves productivity.”

The new set of hardware, called “sleds”, are enterprise-grade encasements for the iPad mini, iPhone (5, 5s, 6, 6s, 7, 7s) and iPod touch. Used in combination with the asset tracking System, these sleds help improve the productivity of employees scanning barcodes and looking up inventory. In addition to the inventory management capabilities of the inventory and Asset Tracking mobile application, users experience the fast-scanning action of a true enterprise-grade laser barcode scanner.

Other notable benefits of the Honeywell Enterprise Sleds for Apple devices include:

  • Read barcodes twice as fast as using the device’s built-in camera
  • Greater durability and protection from drops
  • Increased savings from using consumer-grade devices with enterprise-grade accessories
  • Scan poorly printed barcodes and scan effectively from odd angles
  • 60% more battery life
  • Device failure rates 80% lower

Further Updates

The Inventory System and Asset Tracking Solution now provide a seamless way to login on select Apple devices using the fingerprint instead of entering login credentials. Fingerprints are a very secure form of the passcode and are especially convenient for oft-used business apps on mobile devices. Users simply place their fingers on their iPad or iPhone’s built-in Touch ID fingerprint sensor for automatic login.
