When it comes to choosing mobile scanners, the best solution may be to choose different brands for different requirements – which is why it can sometimes make good sense to buy through an independent consultancy rather than directly from the manufacturer.

That was certainly the experience of Nature Delivered, which wanted to streamline its picking operations. The company markets the range of Graze healthy snack boxes. It now has more than 100 recipes for tasty snacks for the Graze boxes, and picks and packs 1.4 million items per week.

The company says it discovered Spirit Data Capture during a Google search, and Spirit has ended up sourcing four devices for the company from three different manufacturers. The result: the Nature Delivered says it is saving up to two hours a day on some of its picking operations.

The devices are the Motorola WT41 next-generation wearable computer; the Motorola RS419 ring scanner (with superior performance levels); the Intermec SR30 1D handheld linear imager, designed to read even poor quality barcodes; and Honeywell’s Orbit omni-directional hands-free scanner.

According to operations director Andrew Middlecott: “The main benefits are speed and convenience. The devices are all helping us to save precious seconds on each case of products we process.”
