Mobile Connectivity Management from Connect will make mobile POS faster, easier, and less expensive for retailers of any size
Ellington, CT (PRWEB) December 05, 2012
Data Capture Solutions, a leading provider of unique mobility solutions that deliver real business value, today announced a strategic partnership with Connect, a Chicago-based software company and the developer of the Mobile Connectivity Management (MCM) solution. MCM combines Connect’s time-tested software with their extensive RF expertise to deliver three powerful benefits:
1) Interface any type of mobile device with any type of host app, allowing iOS, Android and Windows based devices to work with legacy applications, eliminating the need for TE software
2) Reduce data traffic by 65% or more for faster response time and a significant capacity expansion of the existing wireless network
3) Rapid diagnosis of host app and network issues such as latency, dropped sessions, and lock-ups to dramatically reduce time to resolution.
“We are very excited about our partnership with Connect” said Mark Piquette, President of Services and Solutions at DCS. “Many of our customers are adopting the BYOD model and we think it may become an IT nightmare as they try to get their legacy applications to work with all the different operating systems. MCM solves that issue and eliminates the need for TE software by connecting both web browser and telnet mobile computers to web and telnet applications.”
Shari Christofferson, V.P. of Business Development at Connect said that retail is going to present a lot of opportunities in 2013. “A few retailers we’ve worked with are giving their store associates tablets and mobile POS devices” Christofferson said “and they are finding that the in-store wireless can’t handle all the traffic. MCM uses a proprietary protocol to significantly reduce data traffic, which saves them the expense of upgrading the network.” Christofferson added that the diagnostics within MCM can identify the root cause of host application and network problems in minutes, rather than the weeks it might take to do the work manually.
Data Capture Solutions and Connect will be at NRF, January 14-15, 2013. Anyone interested in a demonstration of Mobile Connectivity Management should visit booth 2759.
