What’s Important to Know About Terminals

Terminals can be a vital component to your wireless infrastructure because of their mobility, ruggedness, and ability to scan quickly and efficiently. Terminals are used when your employees need mobility to perform a function, scanning through a workflow for real-time information and data. Real-time information provides employees with always having health and safety at their fingertips.

Imagine your employees are picking orders. Using a mobile device that enables access to a host interface provides immediate interaction with a database. The employees can see in real-time what orders need to be pulled and what items need to be scanned to the order. As the data is scanned, the host updates the inventory. Inventory problems can be minimized with real-time data.
