Motorola's Enterprise Mobility Offers Mobile Solutions Retailers

Motorola's Enterprise Mobility business announced new retail solutions featuring advanced data capture, mobile payment, voice and wireless security capabilities for helping shop owners operate their businesses. According to a recent Motorola study, 23 percent of shoppers reported that they were unable to purchase everything they needed or wanted in stores this holiday season. Motorola believes that empowering store associates with the enterprise mobility tools they need to get the job done quickly and efficiently builds customer loyalty and can boost sales - especially during peak shopping times.

Motorola's new products include:

  • DS9808 digital imager scanner, can be used in both hands-free mode for rapid scanning of multiple items and in handheld mode for scanning items as far away as 18" that may be too heavy or bulky to be lifted on the counter.

  • Total Enterprise Access and Mobility (TEAM) Express solution, provides sales associates with virtually instant push-to-talk capability between different types of devices, including voice-capable Motorola mobile computers, bar code scanners, TEAM VoWLAN smartphones and Motorola two-way radios. It leverages WLAN and uses a server-less architecture.

  • PCI-compliant DCR-7X00-100R mobile payment module, which mobilizes the point-of-sale and addresses a key challenge for retail and hospitality establishments - to more quickly respond to and complete customers' credit, debit and loyalty card transactions. By providing access to banking and customer relationship management (CRM) systems, businesses can create a mobile point of sale (MPOS) solution that is ideal for applications such as line-busting in retail stores and car rental agencies and table side payment at hospitality establishments
