Frequently asked questions about handheld scanners

What is a handheld scanner used for?

A handheld scanner is a crucial tool in warehouse management, used for efficiently scanning barcodes on inventory items. In the context of MontaWMS, it streamlines data processing, inventory tracking and management, contributing significantly to enhanced operational efficiency in e-commerce and large-scale retail environments.

Are handheld scanners safe?

Yes, handheld scanners, including those provided by MontaWMS, are designed with safety as a priority. They use laser technology that is regulated and deemed safe for use in various environments, including warehouses. Dr. Hutchins confirms that even if the laser light comes into incidental contact with the eye, it should not cause harm. This ensures that MontaWMS's handheld scanner can be used confidently and securely in your daily operations.

What is the difference between a handheld scanner and a flatbed scanner?

The primary difference lies in their usage and design. A flatbed scanner requires the object to be placed on a glass surface for scanning, making it ideal for static office environments. In contrast, like those offered by MontaWMS, a handheld scanner is a portable device designed for dynamic environments like warehouses. It allows users to scan items by moving the device over them, facilitating greater flexibility and efficiency in studying various objects, especially inventory management and logistics.

What is one example of a handheld scanner?

A prime example of a handheld scanner is the Newland Order Pick Scanner MT90. Renowned for its efficiency and reliability, this is a popular scanner in warehouse and logistics settings. MontaWMS utilises the MT90 for its advanced features, such as long battery life and robust scanning capabilities. It is a top choice for businesses seeking to enhance their inventory management and order-picking processes.
