How to improve the speed and accuracy of warehouse operations

Developments in today’s technology has led to many warehouse businesses transitioning to devices built on Android and from keypad-centric devices to full touch screen.

But many legacy applications have not yet been updated for this new touch-centric world and for many use cases, keys remain essential for data capture.

Fortunately, there's one ultra-rugged mobile computer that helps bridge the gap. So whether a business is transitioning to touchscreen capabilities or still key-dependent due to the nature of the business, Honeywell, a BlueStar partner, can help improve the speed and accuracy of operations.

For example, Honeywell’s Dolphin CN80 device offers both a large 4.2-inch vivid colour touchscreen and a choice of numeric or QWERTY keypads, allowing users to pick the best input method for their environment today, and also be ready for the touch-centric applications of the future.

For example, in an environment where workers wear gloves, or applications or workers accustomed to working a certain way, keys are a necessity. So the Dolphin CN80 offers productivity with a real numeric or QWERTY keypad for fast and easy data entry but also has a full touchscreen for new or future application migration.

Built on the Honeywell Mobility Edge platform, the Dolphin CN80 offers an integrated, repeatable, and scalable approach based on a common hardware and software platform – unleashing customers from constraints faced today around integration and inflexible technologies without sacrificing enterprise security, reliability, performance or management features.

Juggling multiple devices across the enterprise introduces time-and cost-intensive complexities for Enterprise IT to manage and maintain.

The Mobility Edge platform enables customers to accelerate provisioning, certification, and deployment across the enterprise.

The Dolphin CN80 device offers an extended product lifecycle across five generations of Android, from Android Nougat to Android R, to maximise return on investment and provide a lower overall TCO.

The device’s advanced enterprise lifecycle tools also simplify frequently repeated tasks such as software updates, training new employees, and managing spare pools. Plus, the ultra-rugged Dolphin CN80 features fast data processing and 1D/2D scanning, advanced network connectivity and advanced battery life lasting twice as long as previous generations to keep workers connected and productive throughout multiple shifts.

Designed to withstand the harshest environments and the toughest users, the Dolphin CN80 minimizes downtime and lost productivity with extreme longevity. Withstands 2.4m (8 ft) drops to concrete and 2,000 1.0 m (3.3 ft) tumbles. IP65/IP67 ratings against dust/water spray and even immersion.
