Embracing Mobile Proof of Delivery for Smarter Supply Chain Operations

0
Scandit-ProofofDeliveryjpg

There’s no denying the impact mobile is having on supply chain operations. At this point, enterprise mobility is more than a just a buzzword; it’s a reality. But in the age of mobility, why are so many companies still using outdated hardware and software to get the job done? The latest smartphones and mobile solutions are transforming supply chain operations like proof of delivery and track and trace, eliminating the need for dedicated hardware and reducing IT costs across industries.

Today’s delivery drivers and logistics couriers often use multiple devices as a part of their daily workflows. This generally includes expensive dedicated hardware such as a GPS, telephone, barcode scanner and signature capture device to support all parts of the pickup and delivery process. Because of this, traceability across stakeholders in the delivery process is typically fragmented, inadequate or non-existent. Meanwhile, many organizations are left in the dark without access to real-time data that could improve efficiency and ultimately help make smarter business decisions.

The good news is that technology is emerging to fill in the gaps, giving businesses viable alternatives to dedicated devices and opening up new opportunities to connect the mobile worker. Enterprises are now actively deploying smart consumer and rugged devices—paired with innovative software—to capture proof of delivery in a whole new way. Backend system integrations make it easy to connect mobile software and devices with existing IT systems such as a warehouse management system (WMS), enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, or order management system (OMS).

By using the built-in hardware on smartphones, drivers can now consolidate their workflows to a single device and mobile application—at a fraction of the cost of traditional hardware and software solutions. By leveraging the ability for smartphones to support driver navigation, geotagged signature or document capture and camera-based barcode scanning, logistics enterprises can dramatically lower costs and improve visibility across their entire organization.

Mobile Proof of Delivery Means Working Smarter, Not Harder

0
Scandit-banner-proof-of-delivery

In the logistics and transportation industries, every second—and every dollar—counts. That’s why today’s distributors and fleet managers are leveraging mobile technology to cut costs and improve efficiency for truck drivers, delivery couriers and contractors. The latest smart devices and mobile software offer businesses the ability to streamline the pickup and delivery process, freeing up valuable driver time, eliminating paperwork and speeding up the billing cycle. Learn how business are lowering costs and improving efficiency with mobile proof of delivery:

Paperless Document Processing

There are many paper-based documents used throughout the delivery process including load manifests, order waybills and invoices. Just because other companies process paper doesn’t mean that your business has to conform to these archaic, time-consuming processes. Mobile proof of delivery solutions offer document and signature capture capabilities that allow drivers to quickly collect and e-file documents from the road. This makes it easy to submit documents and process invoices on the day of delivery using a smartphone—speeding up billing cycles and improving company cash flow. By cutting down the time to submit documents and process invoices, enterprises can boost their bottom line with improved worker efficiency and a 17% reduction in overhead costs associated with paper processing.

Streamlined Workflows from a Single Device

The average delivery driver uses multiple devices to complete day-to-day tasks on the road. From a GPS for navigation, to a barcode scanner for tracking packages and beyond, drivers rely on technology to get their job done. And these devices don’t come cheap. Traditional solutions require a significant up-front hardware investment as well as maintenance and repairs throughout their lifecycle. But what if you could leverage more affordable and efficient devices such as smartphones, or tablets? A recent survey found that 67% of  drivers already carry smartphones on-the-job. So why not put them to better use? Using built-in technology such as camera, GPS and telephone, mobile software can turn smart devices into powerful business tools that capture proof of delivery for fleets of any size.

Smartphone-Based Driver Navigation

Turn-by-turn navigation and route optimization are no strangers to the delivery process, but few drivers are managing routes from cost-effect smartphones. Using mobile proof of delivery applications or external navigation apps, drivers can save time with smartphone-based GPS navigation. By taking advantage of real-time traffic updates, route optimization and push-notifications, drivers can manage their entire trip from the comfort of a touch screen. Suddenly, shortened routes, additional daily deliveries (per driver) and limited driver downtime become a reality. This translates into less gas, fewer drivers and ultimately fewer trucks on the road.

Screen Shot 2016-03-03 at 23.33.31

 

The latest version of the Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK now supports the new Data Matrix Rectangular Extension (AIM-D Symbology Specification: “Data Matrix Rectangular Extension” Version 1.01) which has been proposed to provide a way to encode serialization data on product packages of limited height. Data Matrix ECC 200 codes are today already widely used to encode serialization data on products. However, on small pharmaceutical packages it is often difficult to encode the standardized serialization information because there is only sufficient space in one direction since the height of the product package is limited. The new Data Matrix Rectangular Extension specification addresses this issue by providing 12 additional rectangular Data Matrix code symbols.

The updated Scandit Data Matrix Decoder also makes it easier to scan Data Matrix codes at any angle. It provides better robustness for rotated codes and codes with perspective distortions.

Updated Xamarin API

A New Era of Mobile App Development: Cloud-Based Management and Deployment

0
Scandit_Products_BlogPost

Building a custom mobile solution has never been easy. Today’s fragmented mobile development landscape has only made it more difficult to manage than ever before. With an enterprise environment that is quickly adopting mobile solutions to improve business processes, IT decision makers face considerable challenges when deciding how to build a mobile application.

The ever-expanding market of mobile devices is constantly changing, challenging enterprise IT professionals when building applications for the workplace — especially in bring your own device (BYOD) environments. Complexities arise with development, deployment and device and OS fragmentation. This makes it difficult for IT managers to distribute and maintain enterprise apps in an efficient way across a fleet of devices. Because of this, it’s increasingly difficult for many businesses to build internal app solutions. This has opened the door for more efficient and flexible app development practices that have fostered an ecosystem of solution-oriented businesses to help manage devices and rapidly deploy apps via the cloud.

As an alternative to traditional mobile app development, innovative solutions are emerging that provide the ability to quickly customize and deploy prebuilt mobile apps and services. By leveraging out-of-the-box workflows, scripting languages, integrations with existing IT systems (ERP, WMS, TMS) and cloud-based mobile application management services, IT departments can streamline app development in order to save time and money.

Take Scandit for example: our mobile solutions—built on the Scandit Flow Platform—allow developers to manage app workflows, SDKs and other app components through an interactive web-based dashboard that also captures real-time analytics and scanning data across any organization. We make it easy to quickly build, stage and deploy high performance barcode scanning solutions through a hassle-free device management dashboard for businesses without such services, or integrate with existing mobile application management (MAM) platforms already in use.

By expediting development and stepping away from building custom solutions from scratch, enterprises can simplify app management and focus more on their business— ultimately leading to improved customer relations and an increased bottom line.

Here are new features that Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK version 4.10 has to offer:

QR Scanning Gets Even Better

With the Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK 4.9, we introduced a new QR decoder that provided unmatched pitch, yaw and orientation tolerance. With our new 4.10 release, we increase the pitch and skew tolerance of our QR decoder even further—on average by an additional 20%. We also improved the robustness of our decoder, which led to a 25% increase in maximum decode range compared to 4.9. Our internal user testing showed that users scan a selection of QR codes with our new decoder twice as fast as with competing solutions.

Better Blurry Decoding Performance on Popular Samsung Smartphones

Our 4.10 release makes barcode scanning on popular Samsung smartphones such as the S4 or S6 even more instantaneous than with previous releases. While we could always decode barcodes when the autofocus was not yet triggered on iOS devices and on a significant share of Android devices, our blurry 1D barcode decoder always needed a little help from the autofocus on selected Samsung phones such as the S4 or S6. The latest release of our Scandit Barcode Scanner now brings our signature, instantaneous scan speed, to these popular Samsung devices. Barcodes are scanned as soon as they are present in the camera view finder—no need to wait for the autofocus to trigger and to adjust the focus length.

Support for Universal Windows Platform (UWP) – New in Windows 10

With our Scandit Barcode Scanner 4.10 for Windows we are adding support for Microsoft’s new Universal Windows Platform (UWP) which provides a common app platform available on every device that runs Windows 10. Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 apps target either Windows or Windows Phone.

0

The patent-pending Scandit Case replaces dedicated barcode scanners at a low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) when used in conjunction with Scandit’s mobile software solutions

Zurich, Switzerland – December 08, 2015 – Scandit, developer of the leading software-based barcode scanning solutions for smartphones, tablets and wearable devices, today revealed the Scandit Case. An ergonomically designed iPhone 6/6s case that works with smartphones and all of Scandit’s mobile scanning solutions, the Scandit Case provides protection during everyday activities and a scanning experience similar to that of a dedicated barcode scanner but with a lower total cost of ownership (TCO). The Scandit Case is available for pre-order and will ship in Q1 2016.

While Scandit’s patented barcode scanning software is engineered to provide enterprise-grade scanning on smartphones even in challenging environments – compensating for glare, motion, extreme angles, for example – the Scandit Case combines high-performance scanning with ultimate ease of use and the ergonomics necessary to support scan-intensive data capture applications across the entire supply chain.

By leveraging the built-in LED and camera on the iPhone for illumination, aiming and image capture, the Case provides a scanning experience comparable to a dedicated scanner, without introducing additional electrical components. The end result is a multipurpose device that is ergonomic, built for everyday protection and available at a fraction of the cost and weight of a dedicated scanner.

The Scandit Case is part of Scandit’s evolving product line, including mobile software and cloud services designed to mobilize mission-critical enterprise workflows across the entire supply chain including Order Entry, Proof of Delivery, Inventory Management and more. Through the introduction of the Case, Scandit is the first company to offer a fully integrated, enterprise-grade mobile data capture solution that combines the versatility of software-based scanning, a powerful cloud-based mobility platform (including capabilities such as geolocation, analytics and app lifecycle management) and the ease-of-use and robustness of dedicated devices.

“Advancements in mobile technology have made it possible to use smartphones in situations where they haven’t traditionally been used,” said Samuel Mueller, CEO of Scandit. “The Scandit Case combines the versatility of software-based mobile scanning with the ergonomics and robustness of a traditional scanner. When combined with our cloud-based mobile app solutions optimized to support mission-critical business processes with smartphones, the Case creates new business opportunities and delivers improved operational efficiencies for the enterprise at a lower TCO.”

Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK Version 4.9 Released

by
0
mobilebarcodescanner1960x980 copy 2

We just released the latest version of our Barcode Scanner SDK for iOS, Android, Windows and other supported platforms. This update includes significant improvements to our scanning capabilities and user experience. We recommend that you upgrade soon to take advantage of our increased performance and feature set (see release notes for details). Here are new features that Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK version 4.9 has to offer:

New QR Code Decoder: Read Barcodes at Any Angle for Unmatched Ease of Use

The Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK now features a new QR code decoder that scans QR codes when the smartphone camera is pointed at the QR code at a (steep) angle. This is important in many applications, where QR codes are used and the user needs to otherwise carefully align QR codes and camera (see video).

Our scan engine decodes QR codes at pitch and skew (yaw) angles as large as 70 degrees. With this robust scan engine performance, the Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK does not only significantly outperform software based scan engines for QR decoding, but it also beats the scan performance of high-end dedicated barcode scan engines.

New Symbology Included: MaxiCode

The new Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK provides support for the MaxiCode symbology. Maxicode barcodes are used in tracking and managing the shipment of packages. The predominant use of Maxicode barcodes labels is on UPS shipping labels.

The MaxiCode decoder is not enabled by default in the Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK. To activate, you’ll need to call setSymbology on the SBSScanSettings class for iOS and setSymbologyEnabled on the ScanSettings Class on Android.

In addition to MaxiCode, Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK supports many other major 2D barcode symbologies such as QR, Datamatrix, PDF417, Truncated PDF417 and Aztec.

Customer Spotlight — Swiss Federal Railways: Mobile Track and Trace with Scandit

0
SBB-Casestudy-blog

Barcodes have been transforming the logistics industry for over 40 years, and this continues today as smartphone-based barcode scanning technology ushers in a new era of advanced data capture and enterprise efficiency for logistics professionals. In this week’s customer spotlight, we take a look at how Swiss Federal Railways is using Scandit technology to streamline tracking processes across Switzerland’s 5,124 km railroad network.

Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) is the national railway company of Switzerland, transporting over 366 million passengers every year. With an operating income of more than 8.5 billion CHF and over 31,000 railway employees, SBB isn’t just the largest travel and transport company in Switzerland, it’s also one of the country’s largest employers.

SBB’s Company Mail Department is responsible for the pickup and delivery of all internal shipments as they move across the railway system, ensuring quality control and overall customer satisfaction when transporting goods. SBB needed a more efficient and cost-effective way to track internal mail, packages, pallets and customer luggage throughout their system. Like many businesses, they had traditionally used dedicated barcode scanners to track and trace deliveries traveling by train or truck, but SBB’s dedicated scanning devices were often broken, hard to maintain and required employees to carry multiple devices to fulfill all their daily tasks in the workplace. Trying to solve this problem, and embrace a more efficient and future-proof solution, SBB decided to invest in smartphone-based barcode scanning which presented greater functionality at a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) compared with dedicated barcode scanners.

When SBB began the search for the perfect track and trace solution they knew they needed something that was easy to configure, fast to implement and integrated with their existing, custom IT system. Most importantly however, the solution had to deliver a robust, accurate barcode scanning experience that provided performance equal to the dedicated barcode scanners they wanted to replace—especially in challenging conditions such as low-lighting and glare. Short of creating a custom mobile application that would take many months of software development and upfront resources, only one solution stood up to the challenge: Scandit’s Barcode Scanner for Business. With its enterprise-grade scanning performance, out-of-the-box barcode scanning workflows and cloud services for custom workflows and enterprise IT integration, it was the perfect fit for all their needs.

“Scandit’s Barcode Scanner for Business streamlined our tracking processes by seamlessly integrating with our existing IT system and ensuring deliveries can accurately be managed and traced throughout our network from a single device—freeing us from our reliance on dedicated barcode scanners.”
-Conradin Lietha Project Manager, SBB

Today, SBB benefits from a mobile workforce that is able to scan and track Company Mail deliveries throughout the rail network using smartphones. With Scandit’s Barcode Scanner for Business, SBB has successfully increased employee productivity, lowered its IT costs and replaced dedicated scanners with an enterprise mobility strategy that will allow them to track and trace deliveries for years to come.

Electronic Proof of Delivery: Enhanced Traceability and Streamlined Operations for the Enterprise

0
ScanditWarehouse-Proof-of-Delivery

As customer expectations change and last-mile delivery options like overnight and same-day shipping quickly become the norm, logistics providers are seeking new ways to ensure real-time visibility into the supply chain. To get ahead, many enterprises are turning to cloud-based logistics solutions designed to capture real-time proof of delivery with mobile devices — enhancing traceability across the supply chain.

Enterprises of all shapes and sizes stand to benefit from enhanced traceability presented by electronic proof of delivery. However, very few are ahead of the curve. As drivers continue to rely on multiple devices and paper-based processes to capture proof of delivery, gaps in supply chain visibility occur, leaving logistics providers in the dark. By adopting electronic proof of delivery (POD) solutions logistics providers can streamline processes, enhance traceability and lower costs across their organization.

Streamline Delivery Processes

Many delivery drivers currently use multiple devices as a part of their workflow. This typically includes expensive dedicated hardware to support barcode scanning, signature capture, communication and GPS navigation. With electronic proof of delivery solutions, logistics providers can improve efficiency for an increasingly mobile workforce by enabling the use of a single smartphone or wearable device to keep track of driver pickups and deliveries. The intuitive mobile workflows fit seamlessly into existing delivery processes, eliminating paperwork, reducing errors and increasing productivity among the workforce.

Enhance Traceability for Key Stakeholders

Traditionally, traceability across stakeholders in the delivery process has been fragmented, inadequate or non-existent for many enterprises. These stakeholders include drivers, contractors and part-time employees. For many organizations, it is impractical to provide a dedicated data capture or navigation device for all of them. By leveraging a mobile proof of delivery solution that can be accessed via an employee’s personal or enterprise mobile device to complete all delivery tasks, enterprises can simplify workflows and enhance traceability in the delivery process.

Lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)

One of the main challenges facing IT leaders implementing new logistics solutions is total cost of ownership.  As more and more enterprises begin to embrace mobile technology, it’s important to keep TCO in mind. IT leaders can choose between a wide variety of device options on the market today, making it increasingly difficult to determine which ones will deliver the right performance at the price point that works with their spending budget. By choosing a smartphone or tablet-based solution instead of using dedicated barcode scanners, mobile computers or other peripherals, companies can drastically lower the total cost of ownership involved in supporting legacy hardware without sacrificing performance or efficiency.

New Order Entry App Increases Mobile Purchasing 85% Year-Over-Year for National Distributor

San Francisco, California — October 06, 2015 — Scandit, developer of the leading software-based barcode scanning solutions for smartphones, tablets and wearable devices, today announced that Imperial Supplies, a major US distributor of quality fleet maintenance products, has launched Scandit’s mobile barcode scanning platform to help provide a streamlined order entry experience for transportation and wholesale customers across the United States, resulting in higher order frequency and increased mobile revenues for the company.

Imperial Supplies order entry mobile app leverages Scandit technology to drive efficiency

Imperial Supplies’ required a user-friendly, branded mobile app that put the entire product catalog at their customer’s fingertips for easy ordering. Because their customers had traditionally relied on barcode scanners to improve order entry efficiency, it was essential the Imperial Supplies mobile app incorporate a high performance scanning functionality to add items to orders. The goal was to provide customers with a way to place orders while walking through the maintenance shop—freeing them from having to submit orders from a desktop computer.

Customer requirements meant that the app’s barcode scanning feature had to provide equivalent performance to a dedicated scanner. Imperial Supplies’ customers frequently scan a variety of barcodes—on product labels, on product bins and EZ-Order catalogues and often in poorly lit areas of shops, meaning the barcode scanning solution had to perform accurately across various lighting scenarios in order to meet customer needs. With support for more than 4,000 devices and the ability to scan poorly lit, damaged, and blurry barcodes, Scandit was able to provide the enterprise-grade performance necessary to meet the environmental challenges facing customers.

A new mobile channel that increased order frequency and improved the customer experience

Today, Imperial Supplies has an easy-to-use, reliable mobile scanning feature that saves fleet maintenance customers time in the ordering process and allows them to better manage stock inventory levels. The app’s scanner complements the product search, browsing lists and quick add order features, enabling customers to find products in the way that works best for them. This has translated into greater customer satisfaction and year-over-year growth in mobile purchasing, up 84.9% in 2014 across both iOS and Android devices.

“Thanks to Scandit, we can offer customers a fast, reliable and easy-to-use integrated barcode scanner in our mobile app. This makes customers’ lives a lot easier by allowing them to create their orders on the go whenever they have a minute, ” said Nicole Alboushi, Imperial Supplies’ eCommerce Manager.

Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK Version 4.8 Released

by
0
mobilebarcodescanner1960x980 copy 2

We just released the latest version of our Barcode Scanner SDK for iOS, Android and our newly available version for Windows 8.1. This includes significant improvements to our scanning capabilities and user experience. Given the broad range of improvements made to version 4.8 on both iOS and Android, we recommend that you upgrade soon to take advantage of our increased performance and feature set (see release notes for details). Here are the new features that Barcode Scanner SDK version 4.8 has to offer.

Laser UI for iOS and Android

Starting with release 4.8, Scandit offers an alternative, new scan user interface for iOS and Android that mimics the laser of a legacy barcode scanner. Our new user interface is suited for applications that predominantly scan 1D barcodes, where the developer wants to highlight the location where the 1D codes are decoded in the camera image. 

BS SDK Laser UI Screen

On iOS the laser UI can be activated by setting the guiStyle property of SBSOverlayController to SBSGuiStyleLaser. On Android, the laser UI can be activated by calling setGuiStyle(ScanditSDKOverlay.GUI_STYLE_LASER) on the ScanditSDKOverlay. As before, the actual scan area in which barcodes are decoded needs to be set in the SBSScanSettings class on iOS, and ScanditSDKScanSettings on Android. The white viewfinder rectangle that has been the scan user interface for previous generations of the Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK remains the default user interface.

Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK for Windows 8.1 (arm/x86)

Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK is now also available for Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 supporting both Windows 8.1 x86 tablets and Windows 8.1 Phone devices with ARM CPUs. The scanning performance of the Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK for Windows 8.1 provides the same unique enterprise-grade barcode scanning performance of our leading iOS and Android SDKs.

On Windows 8.1 tablets, the Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK provides barcode scanning performance equivalent to a peripheral barcode scanner (USB or Bluetooth) without the need to purchase and manage an additional piece of hardware. Our Barcode Scanner SDK turns Windows 8.1 tablets into sleek mPOS systems or convenient tools in asset management, field management and logistics applications. Due to our blurry barcode decoding approach, the Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK works with the front and back-facing camera of Windows 8.1 tablets.

The Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK for Windows 8.1/Windows Phone 8.1 ships with a sample application in source code. Sign up for a test version if you are interested in trying it out. You can check out the performance of Scandit’s Barcode Scanner SDK for Windows 8.1 on a Dell Venue Pro 11 (5130) tablet in our latest video below.

Retailers know it’s important to provide customers with a mobile channel to browse, compare and buy products. Those that have been able to implement successful mobile strategies see the results paying off more than ever. By giving customers an easy and efficient way to interact with their favorite products, retailers are driving new revenue and improving customer loyalty through an omnichannel approach. In today’s customer spotlight we take a look at one of Japan’s largest retailers, Tokyu Hands, who uses Scandit technology to power their mobile shopping application, making it easy to scan and bookmark products, and purchase their favorite products in and out of stores.

As part of an evolving omnichannel retail strategy, Tokyu Hands wanted to provide a new way for customers to interact with stores and purchase the products they love from personal smartphones. With a chain of retail outlets, and a successful online store, Tokyu Hands needed a more convenient and easy way to shop that met the demands of mobile customers. They choose to develop a mobile shopping app that would give shoppers the option to make purchases in the store, or on the go.

Since the app’s launch, more than 250,000 customers have downloaded the app to personal smartphones and tablets. With about a thousand scans occurring each day in stores, customers are interacting with their favorite products and bookmarking them for later purchases at home or on-the-go. As a result, Tokyu Hands has created a new revenue channel and increased sales through the mobile shopping app. Meanwhile, customers enjoy the benefits of a personal and interactive shopping experience that keeps them returning again and again.

blog_Retail

News has reached us that some eBay customers using RedLaser’s SDK for barcode scanning have received a notification informing them of eBays’s plan to sunset its barcode scanning SDK for consumer and enterprise apps. Scandit has decided to offer special transition pricing to former RedLaser SDK licensees looking for a barcode scanning alternative.

What You Can Expect from the Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK

The Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK delivers truly enterprise-grade barcode scanning regardless of the hardware and environmental limitations inherent in mobile device usage. Through sophisticated real time image processing, Scandit’s SDK makes it possible to maximize scanning performance of all major 1D and 2D barcodes on cameras with or without autofocus, at longer ranges, and in a variety of adverse conditions.

By transitioning to Scandit you can expect:

  • Exceptional scan performance under adverse conditions—low light, high glare, and damaged codes
  • Patented blurry barcode scanning capabilities
  • Scan barcodes in motion with enhanced motion compensation
  • Professional, ongoing customer support
  • Frequent cross-platform updates to support the newest devices, OS versions and barcode symbologies

To make things even easier, we’re offering a special transition package for RedLaser customers who choose Scandit as their barcode scanning alternative.

This package includes:

  • 30 day test of Scandit’s Barcode Scanner SDK
  • Transition Toolkit to help customers easily switch out SDKs (more details below)
  • Special transition pricing offer of 15% off for Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK*

Transition Toolkit

To make the transition as painless as possible for previous RedLaser customers, we’ve created  step-by-step guides for swapping out SDKs.

Alternatively, we also created a RedLaser wrapper, which provides the fastest way of converting an app using the RedLaser Scanner to the Scandit Barcode Scanner library. The wrapper emulates the classes you know from the RedLaser library and maps its functionality onto the Scandit Barcode Scanner. As the libraries do not have the exact same functionality not all functions can be mapped.

Next Steps

To benefit from the transition pricing package and for access to the step-by-step transition guide (toolkit/Redlaser wrapper), please contact a Scandit representative today.

5 Things to Consider Before Buying Smartphones for your Business

0
phones_blog

Choosing the best smartphone for your enterprise can be tricky. With thousands of models available from a variety of manufacturers, and multiple operating systems to choose from, it can be difficult to find the right device to fit your use case and business needs.

By choosing the right smartphone, you benefit from increased productivity, improved operational efficiency and lower total cost of ownership (TCO) over time. It’s important to know what device and business factors to consider during the purchasing process, otherwise you might select the wrong device, which can result in inflated operation costs for your business.

Scandit understands the importance of choosing the right device for your needs. Whether you’re seeking a fully-rugged smartphone for outdoor environments, or a low-cost employee device to be used indoors, the same device factors should be considered. That’s why we’ve compiled resources to help you make the right decision. By evaluating these factors, you stand to make a better purchasing decision that will drive a successful enterprise mobility strategy for years to come.

Environmental Application

The first thing you should keep in mind is how and where this device will be used. If your mobile workforce is out in the field, in a warehouse or making deliveries, it will be important for the device to be rugged. Rugged devices provide protection in the workplace from drops, shocks, water, extreme temperatures and dirt. It’s also important to think about the device feature-set. If your employees will be using a phone outdoors, or wearing gloves, you’ll want to be sure devices features meet your needs.

Barcode Scanning Requirements

If you are using a smartphone for data capture, you’ll want to consider the frequency of use. If your employees are scanning thousands of barcodes per day, they will need a different device than if they are only scanning dozens of codes per day. The right hardware will increase scanning efficiency and keep your employees productive, whereas choosing the wrong smartphone for scanning needs could leave workers frustrated, and ultimately unproductive.

Performance

Just like most devices you purchase for the workplace, performance is a key factor to consider. Depending on your industry and use case, you may need a higher performing device. What types of software will you be operating? How much data will be stored on each device? How long is the device required to operate on any given day? What types of connectivity features are necessary for employees to complete their tasks? These are all questions you should be asking before purchasing a smartphone for enterprise use.

Security and Device Management

In today’s enterprise, IT management and security are of the utmost concern. No matter if you’re deploying devices directly to employees or embracing a BYOD model, you should be aware of security measures and device management options. If employees are handling sensitive data on the device, it’s important to understand encryption options, MDM capabilities and configuration. Ensure that your device purchase aligns with your IT policies and is able to work with your existing IT systems.

Total Cost of Ownership

One of the most important factors to consider is Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). TCO is calculated by assessing two categories of costs over a device lifecycle: hard costs and soft costs. Hard costs involve the device itself, the software that runs on it and associated software development costs; while soft costs involve the training, operation and downtime costs. Both are very important to consider, and overall your device should provide a low TCO and a high return on investment, productivity and efficiency for your business.

Streamline Order Management and Increase Customer Order Frequency

0
Final Choice

For many companies, placing orders has been a tedious, manual process involving catalogs, spreadsheets and phone calls. That is quickly changing as more vendors take an omnichannel approach to distributing their products, providing customers with options to place orders online or through mobile devices. In turn, market expectations have changed, and those that aren’t offering a streamlined way of placing orders are at risk of losing sales and customers.

Here are three ways that your wholesale, distribution or manufacturing enterprise can streamline order management and increase customer order frequency:

Simplify customer order entry processes and embrace an omnichannel approach

Many of today’s manufacturers and distributors have failed to embrace an omnichannel approach to order entry despite changing customer expectations. By providing an online portal or mobile app for customers to access product inventory and place orders, you can stay a step ahead of the competition. Most customers already have access to a smartphone or tablet, so why not give them an offering that will keep them coming back again and again? By making it easier to browse products and place orders any time of day, you can increase order frequency and boost your bottom line.

Improve user experience with intuitive workflows  

By providing customers with a user-friendly, branded mobile application or web portal that puts an entire product catalog at their fingertips, distributors and vendors can increase order frequency and drive customer loyalty. It shouldn’t be complicated for your customers to browse products, add items to an order, review past orders or submit new ones. Unfortunately, many order entry processes are still paper-based, or require phone calls to submit orders. When it’s easier to place orders quickly from a mobile device customers are more likely to do so, which results in higher revenue and increased customer satisfaction. 

Replace costly dedicated barcode scanners and leverage mobile devices

Dedicated barcode scanners have traditionally played a role in the order entry process. For distributors and vendors, attempting to generate customer lock-in through dependency on expensive barcode scanners is a costly and risky effort, given the alternative feature-rich options provided by smartphone-based system. In deploying a smartphone-based order entry solution distributors and vendors empower their customers to efficiently scan products and place orders directly from a smartphone. The built-in, camera-based barcode scanner delivers enterprise-grade scanning performance and greater functionality at a fraction of the cost of dedicated barcode scanning devices.

Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK Version 4.7 Released

by
0
mobilebarcodescanner1960x980 copy 2

We just released the latest version of our Barcode Scanner SDK for iOS and Android, which includes a number of improvements to our scanning capabilities and user experience. Given the broad range of improvements made to version 4.7 on both iOS and Android, we recommend that you upgrade soon to take advantage of our increased performance and feature set. Here are the latest additions and new features that Barcode Scanner SDK version 4.7 has to offer:

Advanced Motion Compensation for iOS — Faster POS scanning, self-checkout and inventory management

We’re excited to introduce Scandit’s new Advanced Motion Compensation capabilities. Whether you swiftly scan barcodes with your iPad point of sale system or with your smartphone, our new motion compensation on iOS takes the scanning experience to another level. See for yourself in our latest video:

 

iOS Barcode Scanner Framework: Update and redesign

Scandit’s Barcode Scanner SDK version 4.7 contains a major update to the iOS barcode scanner framework. The most prominent features are a redesigned scan UI with a more modern look and a new barcode picker API.

We have redesigned the torch and camera switch button icons to use a flat design. The “scanning by Scandit” logo below the viewfinder has been removed. Instead, the Scandit logo is now rendered more subtly as an inset of the viewfinder rectangle at a much smaller font size.

Phone-Screen-Blog2

In this version, a new iOS barcode picker API (SBSBarcodePicker) has been added. The new API adopts iOS development best-practices that have emerged over the last few years. It is more modern and streamlined, and provides a solid basis for future versions. All classes and enums that are part of this API are prefixed with SBS (acronym for Scandit BarcodeScanner). This API is the new default and new applications should use it instead of the previous API. Existing applications can continue to use the ScanditSDKBarcodePicker. We will continue to maintain the ScanditSDKBarcodePicker and provide bug fixes. However, features that require new functionality on the API level will only be made available for the new SBSBarcodePicker and related classes. Improvements to the barcode recognition engine (performance, recognition rates) will also be available when programming against the ScanditSDKBarcodePicker.

PhoneGap Plugin: More control and subview support

The Scandit PhoneGap plugin for Android and iOS has been extended with new functionality. With this update, it is now possible to use the barcode scanner as a subview (scaled or cropped). In addition, functions to cancel, pause, resume (continue), stop, start and resize the scanner have been added—giving you more control over the scanning process.

A sample layout that uses the cropped picker is shown in the picture below.
