"Casio is proud that the IT-G500 could pass the strict tests set by GK Software and SAP easily", explains Thomas Uppenkamp, Manager of Mobile Industrial Solutions at Casio Europe GmbH. The rigorous test confirms that the Casio IT-G500 can be seamlessly integrated into the SAP infrastructure. "Data is recorded and processed without any compatibility or formatting problems."
The limited numbers of data capture device providers remaining in the retail market leads Uppenkamp to expect strong growth for Casio in this area.
