CR5000 Enhances Productivity for Retail Operations and More

Salt Lake City, UT – January 8, 2015Code, a leading developer of image-based barcode readers, is set to launch the Code Reader™ 5000 (CR5000) (buy here from Legacy Technology Services) at the National Retail Federation’s Annual Convention & EXPO. This high-performance barcode reader improves retail operations by streamlining data collection with breakthrough technology.

Built for versatility, the CR5000 is a compact, durable presentation barcode reader with flexible decoding capabilities. With a wide field of view and patented dual-field optics, it quickly reads 1D, 2D and postal barcodes from a variety of surfaces, including food packages, driver licenses, and mobile phone screens. An array of communication options extends the flexibility of the CR5000 by making it easy to interface with a wide range of hosts, including mobile POS devices.

"Managing data with advanced technology is critical to competing in today’s fast-paced retail environment,” says Code’s CEO and President George Powell. "We created the CR5000 to give retailers an innovative and more effective way to facilitate data collection, improve customer engagement, and ultimately enhance the sales process.”

With embedded formatting features that can be extended through a simple yet powerful JavaScript platform, users can quickly manipulate barcoded data, including driver license and military identification information, to fill out loyalty forms and credit card applications or print templates for ID cards. The CR5000 can easily integrate with enterprise applications, or operate in a unique standalone age verification mode, to help monitor the sales of age-restricted products like tobacco, lottery, or alcohol.

Designed for retail and beyond, the CR5000 enables applications for admissions, loyalty/membership registration, mobile coupons, ticketing, price check stations, libraries and employee time card tracking. Regardless of the services being rendered, users can easily leverage a wide range of scanning solutions to meet their specific needs.

The CR5000 optimizes workflow with superior performance and reliability. Additional product features include: hands-free or manual triggering; reduced power consumption; rapid disconnect cables; programmable LED and audible tone good read indicators; and a lightweight and ergonomic design.
