Omni-Directional Presentation Scanner

Improve operations with affordable advanced data capture

Easy to use, deploy and maintain, the Symbol LS9203 omni-directional presentation scanner from Motorola delivers a high-value choice for seamless integration of advanced data capture into your point-of-sale (POS) environment — at an affordable price. Designed to speed the checkout process for customers while improving sales tracking and inventory management, the Symbol LS9203 high-performance handheld and presentation scanning capability enables your POS employees to work faster and more accurately. And durable construction protects it from the shocks of heavy use, extending the life of your investment.

Reduce costs and streamline POS activity

The Symbol LS9203 helps you lower costs by eliminating the errors inherent with manual, paper-based sales and inventory tracking. You increase profitability by reducing pricing mistakes, minimizing shrinkage and providing better visibility into fundamental business processes. Because the Symbol LS9203 is both a handheld and a presentation scanner, your employees are able to quickly switch between hands-free and handheld mode to scan bar codes easily, maximizing their productivity. You also help reduce injuries, because your employees and customers don’t need to lift or maneuver heavy items for scanning. And the durable construction of the Symbol LS9203 means you’ll avoid downtime resulting from equipment failure.

Use right out of the box

The Symbol LS9203 comes complete with cables, and in most cases, all you need to do is simply plug in the device. Any required customized configuration can be completed quickly and easily with a quick scan of a provided set of programming bar codes. Designed with multiple on-board interfaces and universal cables, the Symbol LS9203 provides flexible host connectivity and easy migration to new hosts — without requiring the replacement of scanners.

Enhance customer service

This easy-to-use scanner allows your employees to work more effectively with customers, no matter how long they’ve been on the job. Faster checkout, gives workers more time to assist customers. The small footprint leaves plenty of space at the register for “impulse purchase” displays to encourage additional sales. And, with the capability to more accurately track customer behavior, inventory management is improved, ensuring that the right product is stocked at the right time to protect against lost sales.
