High-street fashion chain New Look has selected an enterprise mobility solution from Symbol Technologies to help improve employee productivity.

The solution, which has been rolled out across 530 retail stores, replaces traditional paper-based and manual operations on the store floor and aims to free up employees to spend more time with customers.

New Look has equipped employees with 1,300 Symbol MC3000 handheld computers along with M-Netics' new ISIS suite of mobile software applications to help improve productivity through better stock management and quicker and
more accurate price markdowns.

New Look project manager Phil King said the solution has allowed increased productivity as store staff now scan items to find out availability rather than searching stock rooms.

Solutions provider M-Netics partnered with New Look to consult on the most appropriate solution and teamed with Symbol on design and implementation, as well as support and maintenance
