The introduction of instinctive reading distance technology in a cordless scanner permits the Gryphon Cordless 100 and Gryphon Cordless 200 to answer the needs of a wide range of applications. Management of traditional shops from receiving to point-of-sale becomes easier with the use of a reader without cable constraints. Merchandise no longer needs to be moved around the store floor during inventory and price checks. Time consuming activities such as reordering and stock replacement recording typically done on paper can now be executed in real time thanks to instant data transmission to the information system. In particular point-of-sale environments such as wholesale, cash and carry and DIY stores where goods are usually large and heavy, the items cannot be lifted easily onto flat-bed scanners. In this case, the Gryphon Cordless readers are ideal due to their mobility, which lets the operator move around the sales cart. The Gryphon Cordless 200, which reads linear and stacked codes, provides an additional value in applications where PDF417 codes are used, such as in document handling, shipping and receiving. Both models supply cordless alternatives in many activities where the operator needs flexibility and mobility. In distri-bution environments, the cordless Gryphon Cordless readers are very useful in managing damaged and returned item applications, as well as picking operations.
