ProScan Mobile Solutions Enhances Service Delivery Performance

Author: Andrew Fosbrook
Date: 18-Aug-2009

ProScan Enterprise Mobility, a member of the ProScan Group, introduces the new CN50 and CN4 Wireless WAN (WWAN) mobile computers for in-field mobility applications, delivering gains in worker productivity and improved service delivery performance.

The CN50 and the CN4 were designed, tested and optimised for maximum performance and easy integration with compatible Intermec peripherals to protect customers' investments in previous generation technology and enabling smooth migration to 3G technology.

As an extension of the popular CN3 series, both the CN50 and CN4 are available with Enhanced Mobile Document Imaging (eMDI), providing mobile workers with a fast and reliable way to convert full page paper documents into electronic point-of-transactions. The eMDI capacity eliminates the need for flatbed scanners or imaging services, reducing document management costs, streamlining back office operations and improving cash flow.

The CN50 delivers the most advanced ruggedised high performance voice and data communication solution specifically designed for the highly mobile field worker. With data uploads and transfers five times faster than any other mobile computers available, the CN50 has the ability to improve business processes and reduce the cost and complexity of field mobility.

The CN4 is the lightest and fully ruggedised 3.5G Wireless network device in its class, designed to perform in the most demanding work environments. The CN4 can reduce worker downtime and the risk of critical data loss or lost revenue, while easily integrating with a wide range of compatible, performance-optimised printers and accessories.

“The CN50 is the smallest and most technologically advanced rugged mobile computer on the market today.” said Hector Calva, Chief Information Officer at Coca-Cola Femsa. “As an organisation that accounts for almost 10 per cent of Coca-Cola's global sales, our mobile workers need a rugged mobile computer that will make their workday more efficient and enhance the customer experience. The capabilities of the CN50 will revolutionise our delivery operations and enable us to increase the amount of sales transactions we complete.”

“Over the last two years the CN3 has been implemented by major South African companies for in-field mobile applications with fast moving consumer goods, transport and logistics and field service markets. We believe the CN50 and CN4 will add to the outstanding success of the CN3 series, allowing customers to expand into even more mobile applications.”
