Datalogic Skorpio X3 Mobile Computer

Overview of Datalogic Skorpio X3 Mobile Computer

Skorpio™ X3 mobile computer fits a variety of other warehouse environments as well, including:

• Distribution Centers

• Manufacturing Warehouses

• Third Party Logistics (3PL)

Warehouse users of mobile computers carry out a variety of inventory accountability and communications tasks centered on the receipt and disposition of goods. Receiving starts the process as new material arrives at a facility. In some cases, goods will literally be transferred from incoming to outgoing trucks, a function called cross docking.  Sorting and put away operations require communication and direction from the host system to ensure the goods are accurately stored for later retrieval. Picking and staging activities kick off the shipping process. Finally stock counts for year-end inventory and cycle counts to verify inventory accuracy must be completed in the shortest possible time.

Gamma Solutions’s Skorpio™ X3 mobile computer delivers exceptional ergonomics to alleviate the operators’ fatigue, best-in-class ruggedness, computing and data capture technologies to provide a tailored solution for demanding environments needing real time transaction visibility.

Datalogic’s Skorpio™ X3 mobile computer fits a variety of Retail In-Store environments from department stores to specialty stores, from hyper and supermarkets to convenience stores, grocery and DIY. The Skorpio™ X3 mobile computer is primarily used by the retail store associate either for assisted sale or to carry out a variety of inventory accountability and communications tasks.  Stock counts for year-end inventory, spot checks on items with high shrink, and receiving activities require the highest possible speed and accuracy to complete the activity in the shortest possible time. Price checking on the shop floor, picking lists, items verification (not to lose any of those on display on the shop floor) and wall profitability systems (how business went in the last X days for each specific shelf in a shop) all require communication with the host system for associate direction. Voice communications and online resources help the associate quickly track down answers to customer questions.

The Skorpio™ X3 mobile computer delivers the ultimate in ergonomics, intuitive user interface, computing and data capture technologies, combined with a best-in-class ruggedness. The device’s Summit IEEE 802.11 a/b/g radio with CCX v4 certification from Cisco ensures the highest level of security for PCI compliance. Datalogic innovations include the patented good read feedback to better blend with the retail floor mood and the inclined scan engines, both 1D and 2D, are a great value-add to support and alleviate the associates’ everyday work, by making aiming and reading a much faster and easier task. The Skorpio™ X3  mobile computer thus results in a product that is effortless to develop for, deploy and manage.
