We have also been doing research on scanning products. As technology rapidly changes, we have found some scanning equipment that is more durable, more functional, and easier to use. Currently, we recommend using Motorola Laser guns for all your scanning needs. Their products are very durable and easy to use. For batch processing, we recommend using the Intermec guns because of there ease of programmability and batch processing modes. Rental Tracker System Solutions is an authorized reseller of both Motorola and Intermec products. We are also reseller of other bar-coding products.
