OCR Announces the P370 Cordless Data Entry Validation system

P370 Industrial Cordless Scanner Markham, ON, August 17, 2009 – OCR is pleased to announce the P370 Cordless Data Entry Validation System.

One of the challenges of using a wireless hand-held barcode scanner, combined with a Windows application, is the ability to know whether the scan was a success or a failure. There’s no indication as to whether or not the data was valid. With the new Cordless Data Entry Validation Software developed by OCR, any Windows application can use a portable P370 Motorola Scanner and have the user informed of data entry errors.

Most accounting applications and/or other software used to gather information for storage into a database, do not implement remote cordless barcode scanning and thus do not respond back to the remote scanner as to whether the data was valid or not. With the new Cordless Data Entry Validation Software developed by OCR, any Windows application can use a portable P370 Motorola Scanner and have the user informed of data entry errors immediately.

Have you ever tried to scan serial numbers into an accounting system using a cordless barcode scanner? With a keyboard wedge implementation, if the user scans an invalid barcode, the user would not be informed of the error until they return to their computer screen to see it displayed. Now, you can have the error displayed on the scanner screen immediately when the user makes an erroneous scan.

As long as the windows application displays an error on entry, that error can be transmitted to the scanner and displayed for the user to react to. The user will not be able to continue to scan data until the error is cleared on the computer screen. Now a cordless hand-held scanner can have improved feedback to prevent multiple errors by users scanning merrily along without being cognizant of an error in the application.

Obtaining timely confirmation that the host has received the scan successfully leads to increased confidence in and acceptance of the cordless hand-held barcode scanner. Also, acknowleged successful scanning also increases productivity and reduces down times due to correcting erroneous data.

Try out a complimentary week's evaluation of the software and scanner. Please request information from us on the "Cordless Data Entry Validation" software and P370 hardware. The system is currently on sale for $900 including both hardware and software.
