Spectralink Launches New Camera/Barcode Scanner for the PIVOT Enterprise Smartphone

Also Introduces New PIVOT Accessories and Deployment Tools

BOULDER, Colo., Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Spectralink Corporation, the global leader in enterprise mobility solutions for the healthcare, retail, manufacturing and hospitality industries, today launched a new dual-mode camera/barcode scanner for its PIVOT™:SC (8744) enterprise smartphone, a new multi-charger base station for its 87-Series Wi-Fi smartphones and two device management tools to streamline mobile deployment and management.

PIVOT Dual-Mode Camera/Barcode Scanner

Based on the Android™ platform, the Spectralink PIVOT:SC incorporates a slim, streamlined design with an 8- Megapixel camera and new barcode scanner that integrates with Google™ Mobile Services (including Google Play™ and other Google applications) and XML applications. This new dual-mode camera/barcode scanner allows users to switch easily from camera to scanner mode, offering both capabilities in one streamlined unit, without the burden of additional weight from dedicated barcode scanning hardware. Users can flexibly select which buttons they want to initiate scanning from or simply tap the screen. The camera flash is optimized to facilitate fast aiming from any angle without having to use the display to view the barcode. Current Spectralink PIVOT:SC customers can easily add barcode scanning to their devices with the addition of a license to upgrade their handsets to this latest version.

Spectralink developed the PIVOT:SC's dual-mode camera/barcode scanner in association with Code Corporation, a manufacturer of advanced barcode reading imaging devices and systems, and the developer of CortexDecoder, a sophisticated and highly intelligent suite of image-based barcode decoding algorithms.  Code's software and hardware solutions are designed to easily integrate into streamlined, lightweight devices like the PIVOT:SC for use by mobile workers in industries such as healthcare and manufacturing.  "It was a pleasure working with Spectralink on the integration of CortexDecoder into the PIVOT:SC," said Garrett Russell, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Code.  "Adding the market-proven barcode reading performance of CortexDecoder to the advanced computing and communication capabilities of the PIVOT:SC delivers a powerful solution in a sleek form factor that will streamline the user experience."

PIVOT Multi-Charger Base Station

Spectralink is also introducing a new PIVOT multi-charger solution to expand current PIVOT charging options. This multi-charger can be used for the PIVOT:SC (8744) and the PIVOT™:S (8742) enterprise smartphones, and its innovative, interchangeable modular design is configurable to the enterprise's charging needs. From simple to complex configurations, the multi-charger only uses one power cord for two base stations, which simplifies management and conserves space. Additionally, the desktop charger is a smart device that lets the PIVOT transfer data while charging.

Device Management Tools

Also helping enterprises get the most out of their PIVOT solutions are two new device management tools that simplify PIVOT deployment and management. The Quick Network Connect (QNC) streamlines deployment to get the PIVOT connected to the wireless enterprise network with minimal effort.  The Configuration Management Server (CMS) allows administrators to easily customize and configure their PIVOT deployment to their facility, and also helps IT Departments manage deployed PIVOT smartphones with greater visibility and insight to keep their networks running smoothly. Both device management tools are designed to simplify management, improve service levels, reduce network downtime and save money.

"Spectralink is excited to offer enterprises these new enhancements for the PIVOT smartphone. Our portfolio is built around innovation that enables specific mobility use cases for enterprise customers," said Ashish Sharma, CMO of Spectralink Corporation. "We are consistently looking to enhance our mobility solutions to focus on better serving our customers' needs and helping them to be more successful."

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
