The SL42 is designed to transform the Apple® iPhone® 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus into an enterprise-ready solution and targets mobile frontline workers who require real-time connectivity to business-critical applications and superior barcode scanning performance.

Designed by a leader in barcode scanning technology, this enterprise sled helps ruggedise consumer devices for use in day-to-day operations throughout the retail, warehouse and field service industries, improving productivity and better serving customers whether in the office, on the road, or in the field.

“Honeywell recognises that consumer preferences influence the makeup of today’s enterprise environments like never before,” said Sameer Agrawal, director of global product management, Honeywell Scanning & Mobility.

“As Apple’s presence grows, enterprises will have a heightened need to implement enterprise mobility technologies that take full advantage of the productivity and creativity gains Apple is bringing to the enterprise. Pairing our Captuvo enterprise sled with the iconic Apple device can deliver substantial and rapid productivity gains by enabling new business processes and models in a variety of organisations, especially in business sectors like healthcare, retail, direct-store-delivery and field services.”

The Captuvo SL42 quickly and accurately focuses, illuminates, and reads hundreds of barcodes per shift, even when they are damaged, poorly printed, or on a mobile screen.

Designed to withstand the demands of work in the field, it extends the lifecycle of the smartphone and eliminates the more frequent replacements required for consumer devices alone.

Moreover, the SL42 extends the battery life of the smartphone with the capacity to last a full shift and the ability to replace the battery; ensuring mobile users do not lose time servicing customers when a device is out of service for charging.
