Manage Data at the Point of Activity
Equipped with the SPT 1500, mobile professionals in a host of industries are
able to manage data anytime, anywhere. In retail the SPT 1500 enables
single-handed asset tracking, inventory management and physical data collection
with a tool that moves easily from the stock room to the sales floor.
Healthcare providers can download patient information before rounds, and update
records at bedside. Service technicians can track inventory while in the field.
Salespeople are able to enter customer information, scan items from a bar-coded
catalog and check downloaded price lists, all while at the customer's site.
Additionally, the process of home shopping can be significantly improved with
the SPT 1500. Instead of written shopping lists, consumers can scan items as
they are depleted, creating an electronic shopping list. This electronic list
can be used on the next shopping trip or uploaded over the phone lines to the
local store for home delivery.
Tailor Applications for Your Busines
Any business can tailor the adaptable SPT 1500 to boost the productivity of its
mobile professionals. Because the device uses the Palm OS® Platform,
programmers can build solutions using a wide selection of scan-enabled
graphical development tools. Also, more than 1,000 third-party applications
have been developed for the platform. The combination of development tools and
applications makes it easy to find or create software for any data collection
need. In addition, there are more than 50,000 developers registered to create
solutions for the Palm OS® Platform. The device comes with a generous 2 MB each
of RAM and flash memory. A 4 MB configuration is available to accommodate
larger application demands. The Palm OS™ Software Development kit includes
Symbol Application Programming Interfaces (API) for controlling the scanner and
manipulating data input. A growing roster of software companies support the SPT
product family with tools for network and database connectivity.
Easy to Operate Anywhere
The SPT 1500 was designed for convenient operation in the office or on the
road. The SPT 1500 uses Symbol's state-of-the-art SE 900 scan engine, the
smallest, lightest, brightest available today, for premium performance. A
touch-based graphical interface, push-button controls and backlit 160 x
160-pixel display make it easy on the eyes, even outdoors or in dimly lit
spaces. Two AAA batteries deliver many hours of power, and the SPT 1500
supports both single and multi-slot serial cradles for flexible host
communications in most network and user environments.
Symbol systems are critical to business success in data-intensive,
time-critical environments, because our systems help you capture, access and
manage information at the point of business activity.
