The CR4405 turns the iPhone® into an enterprise-grade barcode reader, making the transition to mobility easy. But even if you’re not moving all of your business applications mobile right away, the CR4405 can still be your all-in-one barcode reading device with CortexRelay®.
CortexRelay® is an iOS application that creates a Wi-Fi connection to a host computer running CortexWedge®. Barcode information is transmitted from CortexRelay® to CortexWedge®, translated to keyboard data, and entered into whatever program is running on your PC. With CortexRelay®, businesses with mixed workflows of mobile and PC applications can leverage the same reading device (CR4405 with iPhone®) throughout their enterprise.
