Symbol CS 2000
Point and Scan Technology Makes E-Commerce Easier
The revolutionary CS 2000 Consumer Memory Scanner from Symbol Technologies builds customer loyalty by making electronic shopping the ultimate in speed and convenience. The world leader in automated data management, Symbol created an easy-to-use, bar code data capture system that takes the drudgery out of home electronic shopping.
Home shopping is easy with the CS 2000, the lightest battery-operated consumer bar code scanner available today. Small enough to slip into a pocket, this innovative portable bar code scanner makes short work of the longest grocery list. At-Home shoppers simply point the CS 2000 at the bar code on the item they wish to order, then press the large button conveniently located within thumb's reach. The item is automatically added to the electronic shopping list that is stored in the memory of the CS 2000 scanner. Crossing items off the list is easy, too. Customers simply scan the bar code on the item they wish to remove, press the delete button and the item is erased from the electronic shopping list. The thoughtful design even features a lock-out function, so curious children cannot add or delete items accidentally.
Go-anywhere scanning convenience
Powered by two AAA batteries, the CS 2000 works anywhere. Use it to scan the bar codes on groceries in the pantry, milk in the refrigerator, bleach in the laundry room, in newspaper ads, goods from a pre-printed list or catalog. The CS 2000 reads the information in the bar code and adds the item to an electronic shopping list stored in memory. The CS 2000 has a generous memory that stores the information encoded in up to 500 UPC/EAN/JAN codes, including money-off coupons.
When it is time to shop, consumers choose when and where: from work or from home, any time of the day or night. No need to wade through layers of Web pages or click through multiple drop-down menus to place an order. Shopping is amazingly simple. Scan the bar codes to build the electronic shopping list, then place the CS 2000 in its cradle attached to a PC's serial port. A click of a mouse button, and the order is on its way. An electronic serial number built into the scanner authenticates the order to protect buyer and seller.
