Connected weighing scales and POS systems have been deployed in the retail environment for many years. This connectivity was typically hard wired via serial or Ethernet. In today’s highly dynamic retail space, quick configuration of the store and the various departments is required to accommodate ever changing products and services. In addition, pop-up retail environments that sell seasonal goods require systems that are flexible and mobile. Installing wired connectivity for this purpose leads to store downtime and may not even be feasible in most pop-up retail setups.
A global manufacturer of industrial and commercial weighing scales needed an industrial-grade and reliable enterprise Wi-Fi solution for building commercial weighing machines used in retail environments. The connected industrial weighing scales would be used in retail stores and communicate accurate weight and pricing information on hundreds of items to the retailer’s point of sale systems. The OEM needed a globally certified solution that would mitigate significant product validation and re-certification risks and cost.
Could Lantronix provide a secure, robust wireless solution that would allow this OEM to quickly deliver its smart connected weighing scale solutions to the market?
