In our Oct. 30, 2009 post I provided information about the benefits that image capture provides to a variety of businesses with mobile workers. Mobile computers with integrated high-resolution cameras also provide benefits to retailers working within the four walls.
With a constant flow of inventory arriving at stores every day, there are bound to be some damaged or defective shipments. Equipping workers with mobile computers or digital imaging devices enables them to capture images of damaged goods at the time of arrival to reduce liability and provide photographic evidence of item condition. In addition to photographic evidence, retailers can also create and store documentation to streamline the returns process.
