Optimize the Productivity and Efficiency by Using CipherLab 9700 in Supermarket Warehouse Management
A regional supermarket with 30 stores in South America selling over 5,000 items adopted CipherLab’s
9700 series to improve its stock management as well as its workers’ productivity.
Before adopting the
9700 series, workers of the supermarket in warehouse need to manage receiving goods and stock them in an old fashion way – manually count the delivered items. The process is time consuming and the quality of work is poor. Therefore, the supermarket would like to seek a solution and change this current situation. The CipherLab
9700 features excellent scan functionality with keypad support which provides the convenience of typing needs. The CCXv4 certified IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n assures stable WiFi connectivity in within four-wall environments. It helped workers with agile data collection to backend system. Furthermore, its IP65 sealing protects the device from dust and dirt in daily frequent goods receiving process. Also, together with CipherLab’s Terminal Emulation, similar backend operating environment accompanied by user-friendly interface can be created. The supermarket can maximize the investment with simple device deployment instead of the overall system replacement. Minimal training on data entry is required due to the familiar operating screen. The overall deployment cost is then lowered accordingly.
The close connection between our partner and end users brought insightful understanding about the demands which helps expand CipherLab product adoption in South America. We are happy that CipherLab
9700 has been used successfully throughout its stores with positive impact on workers’ efficiency and productivity.

CipherLab’s utility – AppLock was designed to help ease potential problems. “Auto Start Apps”, “Screen Pinning” and “Hide on Desktop” are what we mentioned in the previous issue, we are going to introduce a few more functions that will bring assistance to you.
“Clear Recent Apps” and “Recent Apps Whitelist” are two contrary setting concepts. “Clear Recent Apps” could be used to clear any Apps that are being accessed recently. On the contrary, administrators could set specific applications with boxes ticked in “Recent Apps Whitelist”, these Apps will be kept and not cleared when you clear recent Apps. This function allows administrators to keep specific Apps that are required to be used by workers frequently and not cleared to quicken their execution process.
Moreover, the function “Assist App” is like the iPhone Siri. It can be activated with a long press on the Home button. All the applications listed in the “Assist App” page of AppLock correspond to Android system settings. Remember to remove any Apps that you do not want workers to use as a medium to access or link to non-work related applications.
In conclusion, use AppLock to your advantage; it will bring great help to your device management. Start to explore all these functions and you will find that AppLock is more powerful than you think.
