The UNI 7 allows retailers to maximise the use of their store Host System through data transfer and each unit has wireless capability as standard and therefore does not require manual link via USB or data cabling. This makes is easy to move units around the store. UNI 7 offers easy programming directly on the scale or through PC software and error log files make error identification quicker.
Long-term traceability is made easy, with the UNI 7 being able to provide a virtual receipt for up to 5 years. Plus it is GS1 ready, which enables the unique identification of all trade items, processes, services, shipments, assets, companies and locations at any point in the supply chain. This system is used by all industries to facilitate trade by combining unique identification numbers with data carriers (barcodes) and electronic commerce processes.
Workflow and efficiency behind a busy counter is improved significantly with a few clever features. Users are able to use multiple units when serving once customer as they move around the serving counter due to a ‘Floating Operator’ function.

Improved customer communications
