Improving customer satisfaction has long been the mission of retailers everywhere, and making the checkout process more efficient is a key area of focus. By providing highly responsive and accurate scanning at checkout, the Intermec SG20 handheld bar code scanner helps you improve the customer experience.
Reliable, Responsive Scanning
The checkout process is all about speed and efficiency. The SG20HP features the industry’s fastest bar code reading technology, providing more than 50 times the motion tolerance of typical scanners. This ensures that all common 1D and 2D bar codes are scanned easily and consistently so you can serve your customers quicker.
Unlike laser scanners, the SG20HP supports true omnidirectional scanning of both 1D and 2D bar codes. When combined with bestin- class motion tolerance, this capability means your bar codes can be scanned at record speeds, at any orientation. Now, you don’t have to waste time repositioning awkward items to get a successful scan.
Perfectly Matched to Your Needs
Intermec understands that a “one-sizefits- all” approach to scanning can limit user efficiency and accuracy, so the SG20 family includes a range of models with different communication and scanning capabilities.
Select between Bluetooth wireless for up to 10 meters (32.8 feet) of range, or the simplicity of tethered (cabled) connectivity. Choose the scan engine matched to your needs: either 1D-only or high performance 1D/2D scanning. Now, you can standardize on a single scanner family across your operation while providing employees with just the right capabilities they need for their specific tasks.
A variety of matching accessories, such as scan stands and holders, enable hands-free scanning and free up counter or desktop space. Regardless of the configuration, the entire SG20 line is priced for affordability and value.
Setting a New Design Standard
The stylish design of the SG20 sets it apart from traditional gun-shaped handheld scanners. Careful attention to detail and extensive usability testing have resulted in a scanner that is not only aesthetically pleasing on any countertop, but also optimized for user comfort with a natural smooth grip and trigger location.
The arching profile of the SG20 is perfect for tight spaces and the over-sized multi-color LED provides a bright visual cue to confirm a successful scan, which can be helpful in noisy environments. In fact, the LED can be programmed to match the decor of your storefront.
Part of a Complete Intermec Solution
The SG20 can be quickly and easily configured with Intermec’s exclusive EasySet™ PC programming tool. In just a few clicks, this Windows-based utility can print programming barcodes for custom configurations. Adjust security settings, symbologies, beeper tone and volume, LED color—even set up advanced data editing routines.
