Cheetah Software Services, a SaaS transportation logistics solutions provider, announced that it has added support for the Opticon H-Series ruggedized smartphones, available from Ryzex. The Opticon H-Series devices deliver the convergence of Windows Mobile-based smartphones and Opticon’s latest laser scanning technology to allow for the seamless integration of barcode-based data capture into customers’ mobile businesses.

By supporting Opticon’s H-Series devices, Cheetah provides a familiar Windows Mobile environment that supports instant productivity, along with 1D and 2D scanning options to capture a wide range of barcode formats. Furthermore, the H-Series offers an IP 54 rating, proving its ability to withstand multiple drops to concrete and to survive in the most demanding of environments. Finally, with Ryzex services, such as staging, integration support and mobile device management, customers can be up and running with their new technology quickly and cost-effectively.

Using smartphones like the Opticon H-Series provides Cheetah and Ryzex customers with enhanced capabilities in the field. Drivers can capture electronic signatures (proof of delivery) at the point of delivery that are transmitted in real time and made visible internally and on customer websites. Validated barcode scanning ensures delivery accuracy and improves driver productivity and performance. Finally, smartphones can host other advanced solutions such as GPS-based mapping software that integrate with Cheetah’s mobile applications.

“Cheetah supports a wide variety of handheld devices, from simple Java- and GPS-enabled cell phones to rugged PDA devices with signature capture and barcode scanning,” says Stephan Karczag, Cheetah’s vice president of sales and marketing. “Adding support for the Opticon H-Series smartphones enhances our solutions by integrating advanced barcode scanning and application support in a series of ruggedized devices.”
