Newland Launches Optimized Android Version of their Flagship Micro Kiosk
Whether it’s a store, café, pharmacy or football stadium, the time a customer spends in your venue can make or break their view of your brand. Newland, a global barcode scanner and mobile computer manufacturer, developed their NQuire 300 with exactly that in mind. The new entry-level Android Micro Kiosk makes the most of the customer experience by streamlining self service in the form of price checking, access control or self check-out. The NQuire 300 is an improved and modernized variation of their successful NQuire 200, a Linux-based micro kiosk. While the NQuire 200 will continue to be sold as a straight-forward scanning solution, the NQuire 300 offers an array of improvements in a similar jacket.
In Q1 of 2017, 86.1% of smartphone sales worldwide had an Android operating system. This global dominance extends into business markets like retail, hospitality, healthcare, logistics and more. Over the last few years, Newland EMEA has built a strong Android portfolio with a variety of Mobile Computers, and with the NQuire 300 they are now adding a Micro Kiosk to this product range.
Running Android 4.4.2 Kitkat, the NQuire 300 provides companies with endless development possibilities and their customers with an interface that is intuitive in use. With powerful customer-facing applications, the device can improve company efficiency, taking pressure off of employees and putting the power of self-service in the hands of the user. The familiarity of the OS makes looking up product information, scanning an entry ticket, checking a price or making a purchase is quick and simple, even for inexperienced users. Alternatively, employee-facing applications like product tracking or an employee time clock can streamline workforce- and supply chain management.
A wide variety of features further enhance the versatility of the NQuire 300. Users can take advantage of a built-in Newland 2D imager that delivers snappy barcode scanning on linear and 2D barcodes. In addition, several connectivity options – including Bluetooth, Ethernet and WiFi – illuminate everyday tasks that involve asset and people management. The HF RFID reader opens the door to NFC applications like payment and access control, as well as supply chain management with short-range wireless data transfer, and an external USB and GPIO port allow users to connect an external device, such as a handheld scanner.
