Samsung Telecommunications America and MP2 Solutions have launched the first point of sale solution for a Windows Mobile device. Businesses are now able to completely manage field sales using Samsungs Microsoft Windows Mobile-based SPH-i700 Pocket PC Phone powered by MP2 Solutions.This collaboration makes the i700 a powerful all-in-one business solution for mobile sales forces, enabling sales professionals to perform secure credit card transactions, capture digital signatures and print receipts from the field. The MP2 application platform also offers asset tracking, field surveys, inventory management and delivery confirmation, all of which are integrated with robust reporting engines and tools. MP2 will seamlessly aggregate all handheld transaction information and combine it with existing back office system data to produce end-to-end company reports. The entire MP2 product suite accomplishes all of this while maintaining the full functionality of a wireless phone and PDA. The MP2 solution is available with two equipment options for point of sale and field force automation functionality. The first option, a Semtek magnetic stripe reader attached to the i700, is Bluetooth-enabled via Socket Communications SDIO Connection Kit and utilizes a wireless Brother MPrint micro printer. The second option is an all in one MP2 PDA cradle that has both the magnetic stripe reader and printer on the same device.
