Logitech to introduce Digital Pen with Bluetooth for Mobile Data Collection
Logitech has announced plans to offer business solution providers a Bluetooth wireless technology enabled version of the Logitech io2 Digital Pen.

According to the company a digital pen with Bluetooth technology, used in combination with a wireless handheld communication device featuring Bluetooth technology can help an organization's mobile workforce more efficiently gather, transmit and share important data in real time.

Organizations in industries such as sales, field services, insurance, financial services, healthcare and government regulation are reliant on their mobile workforces' ability to collect accurate data in the field and share it quickly. Logitech thinks a digital pen with Bluetooth technology can extend the value of existing solutions for mobile data collection and allow for new digital solutions in industries that require a paper record.

Using the Logitech io2 Digital Pen with Bluetooth technology, a mobile worker will be able to capture information by using a customized version of a standard paper form, such as for an insurance appraisal or a work order. The pen automatically creates a digital record that is transmitted to a complementary Bluetooth wireless technology enabled handheld communication device, such as a smartphone or PDA. That data can be stored and processed on the handheld device or immediately sent into an organization's central database for processing. For the mobile worker, it's an automated process that starts with filling out a familiar form and ends with a confirmation on his or her wireless handheld communication device that the information has been sent and received

Field data is typically collected in one of two ways: on handwritten forms with traditional pen and paper or on a wireless handheld device. For industries that require paper records, a digital pen featuring Bluetooth technology satisfies that need by creating a written record on a paper form. Simultaneously, the pen creates an electronic record that enables real-time tracking and can expedite processes such as billing. For industries that are already using wireless communication devices to capture information digitally, a Bluetooth wireless technology enabled digital pen solution allows the mobile workforce to capture more information more quickly. Entering large amounts of information into a PDA, Blackberry or smart mobile phone can be cumbersome due to the devices' size and limitations of the digital interface.
