- 1,500 mobile terminals as capture equipment in the field of merchandise management

The company Fressnapf Tiernahrungs GmbH, Europe's biggest specialist retail chain for pet food and accessories, has opted in favour of mobile terminals from Hoeft & Wessel. In approximately 1,200 German and European branch outlets, data recording will in future be carried out with the skeye.allegro LS product series. Thanks to a display in landscape format, this handheld is ideal for depicting tables. Delivery of the 1,500 devices is set to begin by the end of this year and is expected to be finalised by mid-2013. The agreement that has just been concluded also extends to include five-year after-sales services and accessories.

The latest generation of devices from Hoeft & Wessel is deployed to record or capture merchandise by scanning barcodes. The skeye.allegro LS is directly connected to the merchandise management system by WLAN. In the course of implementation, Hoeft & Wessel collaborates with SAP and GK Software, as it does with other projects.

By acquiring Fressnapf as a new customer, Hoeft & Wessel is consolidating its leading position for mobile data capture devices in Germany's retail sector.
