This out-of-box quality guarantee applies during the first 200 items scanned to ensure every scanner is in good working condition before the 12 month factory warranty terms begins.

There are two expedited repair options designed to provide factory warranty repair service for those customers requiring asset tag tracking or who prefer to retain their existing scanner and need it returned quickly. A typical scanner repair takes 5-7 days to complete and 3-5 days for standard ground shipping. The expedited repair will be completed and the scanner ready for shipment the same day via customer specified shipping method if the scanner is received by 8:00 AM PST or next day on scanners received after 8:00 AM but before 2:00 PM PST. The customer is responsible for shipping the scanner to and from the factory. Optional fees apply and availability may be limited.
