Mobile computing for feet on the street

Product: Dolphin 9900 Mobile Computer

Some merchant level salespeople (MLSs) set up mobile merchants with handheld wireless POS terminals so they can accept plastic on the go. But the feet on the street are just as mobile as their merchants.

So what is out there to help mobile MLSs do their jobs?

The Dolphin 9900 Mobile Computer developed by Honeywell International Inc. might be the answer. The Dolphin is a handheld computer designed for mobile data collection and communication - information processing in real-time.

Hardware

Enabled by Bluetooth wireless technology, the Dolphin offers cellular voice communication over integrated wireless wide area networks and local area networks at high-speed data transfer rates. So MLSs are connected to any compatible wireless device.

Global Positioning System (GPS) technology is integrated into the device, giving MLSs turn-by-turn navigation and route optimization to merchant locations.

Sales reps are able to record time and location stamps using the Dolphin to document proof of visitation and service calls.

According to Honeywell, the combination of wireless connectivity with the GPS tracking system in one device eliminates deployment of multiple devices in the field.

Data collection on the Dolphin is powered by Adaptus Imaging Technology 5.0. The computer can electronically capture signatures for proof of receipt or take pictures of damaged POS terminals.

Software

The Dolphin runs on the industry standard Microsoft Windows Mobile 6 operating system. The device is equipped with software utilities for application development and deployment:

The Dolphin is also capable of remote device management. Through MobiControl, the Dolphin allows for software provisioning, screen and video capture, instant messaging and device lockdown.

Ready to go

The Dolphin enhances productivity by employing the Shift-PLUS Power Management system that ensures users get a battery life that lasts for 10 hours or more, even in wireless and scan-intensive environments.

The Dolphin 9900 is distributed by BlueStar.
