CipherLab Introduces the First Seamless Replacement for the Retail Industry

Originally published November 17, 2005

CipherLab, a provider of automated identification and data capture (AIDC), recently announced the first seamless replacement solution for the retail industry's aging Telxon acoustic data capture infrastructure. The new CipherLab 8020 enables retailers and distributors to painlessly adopt the latest data capture technology for the same cost as a few simple repairs to their existing Telxon field units. With the new product, customers can simultaneously update their current data capture technology and better position themselves for future business requirements without having to replace or reconfigure existing infrastructure and systems.

"Even though Telxon devices and parts are no longer manufactured, they're still integral to some of the most broadly deployed data capture systems in the field," noted Robert Hossary, Vice President, Americas for CipherLab. "These old units are prone to breakdown and expensive to fix, but until now retailers haven't had an alternative other than to rip and replace their whole infrastructure. At CipherLab, we view this as an opportunity: allow customers to cut maintenance costs, adopt the latest technology and position themselves to take advantage of new business opportunities. Our exclusive terminal and software allow instant replacement without having to touch the backend systems until they're ready. That's what we're offering with the new 8020."

The CipherLab 8020 hardware and software supports the same acoustic capabilities as the old Telxon units, allowing the units to fit seamlessly into the customer's business systems without requiring additional changes. More importantly, it allows a solid migration path for the future, eliminating maintenance today while opening up a wealth of new opportunities for custom application development, eventual system migration, and greatly enhanced capabilities.
