SPT 1550 Pocketable Computers

Pocket-sized Productivity for People on the Move

Based on the popular Palm III™, the SPT 1550 is a powerful productivity tool, enabling users to capture and manage data with unparalleled convenience and functionality.

Manage Data at the Point of Activity

Equipped with the SPT 1550, mobile professionals in a host of industries are able to manage data anytime, anywhere. In retail the SPT 1550 enables single-handed asset tracking, inventory management and physical data collection with a tool that moves easily from the stock room to the sales floor. Healthcare providers can download patient information before rounds, and update records at bedside. Service technicians can track inventory while in the field. Salespeople are able to enter customer information, scan items from a bar-coded catalog and check downloaded price lists, all while at the customer's site. Additionally, the process of home shopping can be significantly improved with the SPT 1550. Instead of written shopping lists, consumers can scan items as they are depleted, creating an electronic shopping list. This electronic list can be used on the next shopping trip or uploaded over the phone lines to the local store for home delivery.

Tailor Applications for Your Business

Any business can tailor the adaptable SPT 1550 to boost the productivity of its mobile professionals. Because the device uses the Palm OS® Platform, programmers can build solutions using a wide selection of scan-enabled graphical development tools. Also, more than 1,000 third-party applications have been developed for the platform. The combination of development tools and applications makes it easy to find or create software for any data collection need. In addition, there are more than 50,000 developers registered to create solutions for the Palm OS® Platform. The device comes with a generous 8 MB each of RAM and flash memory. The Palm OS™ Software Development kit includes Application Programming Interfaces (API) for controlling the scanner and manipulating data input. A growing roster of software companies support the SPT product family with tools for network and database connectivity.

Easy to Operate Anywhere

The SPT 1550 was designed for convenient operation in the office or on the road. The SPT 1550 uses the state-of-the-art SE 900 scan engine, the smallest, lightest, brightest available today, for premium performance. A touch-based graphical interface, push-button controls and backlit 160 x 160-pixel display make it easy on the eyes, even outdoors or in dimly lit spaces. Two AAA batteries deliver many hours of power, and the SPT 1550 supports both single and multi-slot serial cradles for flexible host communications in most network and user environments.

Data ID's systems are critical to business success in data-intensive, time-critical environments, because our systems help you capture, access and manage information at the point of business activity. You may also be interested in the Palm-size printer for the SPT 1550.
