A new feature in Paladin Point of Sale enables compatible handheld barcode scanners to alert cashiers when additional action is required.
Scanning during the check-out process can be interrupted for a variety of reasons. When the situation arises; The scanner will stop scanning, flash three times, and emit three audible beeps. Once cashiers know a problem exists, they can apply the remedy and continue, saving time and making the checkout process more efficient.
Barcode scanners using this feature add efficiency in other ways:
Retailers and pharmacies who capture customer information to satisfy anti-graffiti, anti-meth, or other controlled substance regulations, will find this feature a great tool to help them stay in compliance.
Since many states print barcodes on driver’s licenses, 2D barcode scanners can be used to register and verify customers for rewards programs and capture customer data to open new in-house charge accounts.
There are currently a number of scanners that work with this feature, with more coming online soon.
• Gryphon I GD4100
• Gryphon I GBT4100
• Gryphon I GD4400 2D
• Gryphon I GBT4400 2D
