ZEBRA DS4208

GENERAL PURPOSE HANDHELD 2-D IMAGER

2-D BAR CODES — THE WAVE OF THE FUTURE IS HERE

2-D bar codes help businesses better manage inventory; cost-effectively comply with track and trace regulations for food, pharmaceuticals and more; and capture new types of data to improve overall process efficiency. In addition, both retailers and manufacturers alike must implement new standard 2-D bar codes that were created to streamline the entire supply chain. But 2-D imagers typically lack the speed and accuracy of 1-D laser scanners. How can you implement 2-D imaging without impacting business productivity?

FUTURE-PROOF YOUR BUSINESS WITH HIGH PERFORMANCE AFFORDABLE 2-D IMAGING

The DS4208 delivers the blazing speed typical of laser scanners on both 1-D and 2-D bar codes, allowing you to accommodate 2-D bar codes without sacrificing scanning quality or performance. Users never need to take time to align the bar code with the scanner or pause between scans. And since you can capture bar codes printed on paper labels or displayed on the screen of a mobile phone, retailers can accommodate customers who download mobile coupons, mobile loyalty cards and more. You get industry leading scanning speed on every bar code; true point-and-shoot first time scanning simplicity on even damaged and poorly printed bar codes; and a durable design for all day everyday reliability — all at an affordable price.

DRIVE CUSTOMER SERVICE AND REVENUE TO A NEW LEVEL WITH SUPPORT FOR MOBILE BAR CODES

Since the DS4208 can scan bar codes on mobile phone displays, you can attract the millions of customers who are using their cell phones to better manage their lives. Retailers can scan mobile coupons, mobile loyalty cards, mobile gift cards and more. Quick service restaurants can accept mobile coupons at the register. Location-based mobile couponing allows retailers and restaurants to entice customers to stop in by automatically issuing discount coupons when patrons are in the vicinity of your facility. Hotels can allow guests to use electronic loyalty cards stored on their cell phones, eliminating the need to carry physical cards. And since theaters, theme parks and stadiums can scan mobile tickets as easily as a paper ticket, they can offer customers an added convenience — paperless ticketing.

GET THE SMART INVESTMENT WITH A LOW TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP (TCO)

The DS4208 is built to last — and our toughness tests prove it. The DS4208 delivers outstanding performance, even after exposure to heat, cold, dust, a spilled beverage — and 2,000 consecutive drops. In addition, with our unique support program, Service from the Start Advance Exchange Support, you can count on next-business-day device replacement — no questions asked — providing the uptime you need to keep business running smoothly. And with two Zebra tools — 123Scan2 and Remote Scanner Management — everyday management is easier and less time consuming, reducing IT time and cost.
