The compact DS7708 is easy to install and ideal for wide variety of applications including food retailers (grocery stores, supermarkets, hypermarkets), specialty retailers (Do-It-Yourself, hardware, pet supplies) and pharmacies where it can help improve efficiency and customer service at the point of sale. "Retailers need barcode imagers that are easy for store associates to use and highly accurate for reading damaged or poorly printed barcodes," said Bob Sanders, senior vice president, data capture solutions and engineering shared services for Zebra. "The cost-effective DS7708 delivers a range of smart technologies that can help retailers quickly deploy the solution while also reducing checkout lines and enhancing customer service."​
