Ryzex Works with the Leading Retailer to Significantly Enhance Operational Efficiencies

EVERETT, Wash. -- Intermec Technologies (NYSE:IN) today announced that Home Hardware Stores Limited, Canada's largest independent hardware, lumber, building materials and furniture retailer, in collaboration with Intermec Honours Partner, Ryzex, has selected the Intermec CK3 mobile computer for use across its over 1,000 retail stores. The CK3 will be used to help manage the retailer's more than 60,000 items and accompany its in-store POS (point of sale) operations. The solution delivers considerable improvements and increased efficiencies in inventory management, store ordering, and pricing and promotions for each independent store Dealer.

"We've been working with Ryzex for a few years, and they appreciate the challenges involved with running a retail operation," said Keith Hunt, Director of Retail Applications for Home Hardware. "We selected the Intermec CK3 because of its broad feature set, and overall weight and ergonomics, enabling our Dealers to streamline operations by utilizing highly adaptable data and image capture capabilities, along with secure wireless communications, in a highly durable handheld package. Positive feedback from our Dealers was also very influential in the selection of the Intermec solution."

Home Hardware recognized the need to introduce a solution that would be accepted by its more than one thousand Dealers and solicited feedback about the CK3 from the Dealers and various parties across its organization spanning from management to the help desk. The CK3 will empower Home Hardware to remain competitive by updating its operations with industry-leading technology that puts the retailer in position for better efficiencies today, and in the future.

"Our relationship with Home Hardware has enabled us to truly understand their operations and provide quality counsel regarding the leading AIDC solutions that will empower them to efficiently manage their inventory," said Ken Rayner, General Manager, Ryzex Canada. "We recommended the Intermec CK3 because it was the best solution in the industry for meeting their business needs and seamlessly integrating with their current software and systems."

The Intermec CK3 mobile computer is ideal for rugged environments, providing future investment protection by delivering high performance for critical mainline applications along with the flexibility to easily add capabilities like voice/speech and RFID.
