BOULDER, Colo., Feb. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Spectralink Corporation, the global leader in enterprise mobility solutions for the healthcare, retail, manufacturing and hospitality industries, today announced the results of independent research on the performance and symbology support features of its PIVOT™:SC (8744) enterprise smartphone with a dual-mode camera/barcode scanner. The study, conducted by The Tolly Group, showed quantifiable benefits in comparing the PIVOT:SC to two phones with dedicated hardware scanners.
Spectralink introduced the PIVOT:SC's dual-mode camera/barcode scanner in December 2016. This new feature allows users to easily switch from camera to scanner mode, offering both capabilities in one streamlined unit without the additional weight from dedicated barcode scanning hardware. This provides economic and weight advantages for workers who require both telephony and barcode scanning capabilities to perform their jobs.
The Tolly study compared the PIVOT:SC 8744 to the Zebra MC40 and the PIVOT 8753, an older model of the PIVOT but also with a barcode scanner. Test results showed that the Spectralink PIVOT:SC had faster average scan time than the dedicated hardware-based Zebra MC40. Additionally, tests showed that the Spectralink PIVOT:SC recognized more symbologies than Zebra at 37 to 24, and could match Zebra's scanning accuracy when angled 15 degrees. The PIVOT:SC also costs about 30 percent less than the Zebra MC40.
"Spectralink is pleased with the results of the Tolly study on our PIVOT:SC," said Ashish Sharma, CMO of Spectralink Corporation. "Our new camera/barcode scanner is a great example of how we're continually looking for ways to enhance our mobility solutions to better serve our customers' needs. The fact that it consistently outperformed the Zebra MC40 in Tolly's testing shows that we are providing our customers with industry-leading technology at a better value."
Kevin Tolly, Founder of The Tolly Group, agrees that "Our study demonstrates that the PIVOT:SC's barcode scanning capabilities offer a huge benefit to Spectralink's customers as far as agility, efficiency, and cost savings."
The PIVOT:SC and its new camera/barcode scanner recently received a 2017 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award from TMC, a global, integrated media company. These awards recognize the most innovative and highest quality IP communications brought to market, or updated, in the past year.
