San Francisco, July 22, 2014. Scandit (www.scandit.com), developer of the leading software-based barcode scanning and data capture platform for smartphones, tablets and wearable computing devices, today announced that it continues to experience significant traction in the North American retail and supply chain markets, with the addition of several recognized brands to its customer base. The company is now working with Party City, Saab, Shell, Priority Payment Systems, Florida Healthcare and American Woodmark, who join a variety of additional businesses including Capital One and Saks Fifth Avenue in the rapidly growing list of organizations taking advantage of Scandit’s disruptive and ground-breaking solution.
Scandit’s enterprise-grade, barcode scanning technology is enabling innovative, mobile device-based solutions for many retailers, manufacturers and logistics businesses. Using Scandit’s Barcode Scanner SDK, companies are able to offer a variety of consumer—and employee—facing applications, including mobile shopping, clienteling, mobile point-of-sale, asset tracking and product information gathering. These applications are driving customer engagement, increasing customer satisfaction and simplifying back-office processes.
For example, with Scandit’s technology, retailers are empowering consumers by letting them find out more information about a product and shop from any mobile device simply by scanning a product’s barcode, and salespeople are enhancing customer service by scanning barcodes with a smartphone or tablet —either provided by the company or via their own, supporting the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend— to provide customers with product details including available inventory, other colors or sizes, etc. On the supply chain side, manufacturers are enabling smartphone-based barcode scanning to track parts on the assembly line and replace expensive, traditional barcode scanners and mobile computers. In addition to licensing its Barcode Scanner SDK, Scandit offers comprehensive product suites for retail and supply chain businesses, including customizable, white-label applications.
“We’re thrilled to partner with these enterprises and many others as they implement Scandit’s software-based barcode scanning solutions to improve customer engagement and streamline operations,” said Marlene Tuzar, Scandit’s vice president of sales. “As we continue our growth and traction in the retail and supply chain markets, we look forward to many joint successes with our clients.”

With more than 12,000 licensees in 80 countries, Scandit processes hundreds of millions of scans per year.
