What is a data scanner and what is it for?

Every delegate will be wearing a badge throughout the exhibition. To save you time collecting data from the delegate you can simply ask to scan their badge which holds all of their contact information.

This will be collected on the online system for your scanner for you to download the day after the show.

Data can even be categorised by their requirements. For example, you can scan everyone who would like a catalogue sending out under one barcode and everyone who wants a follow-up sales call under a different barcode. 

Is there internet available PestEx?
