Four Mobile Data Capture Myths Debunked by Scandit Solution Capabilities

| Products & Solutions


There are a lot of common misunderstandings relating to supposed “shortcomings” of mobile data capture technology. Following is a look at four common mobile data capture myths, and how Scandit functionality disproves each one.

1. If we acquire the system, we will have to buy a faster, more accurate version later.
Scandit technology is continuously improving. We are constantly upgrading the features and performance of our scanning engine. Thanks to our cloud-based infrastructure, users can receive these updates automatically. This avoids the time- and labor-intensive manual updating associated with dedicated barcode scanners. In addition, smartphones, tablets and wearables also offer automatic, cloud-based platform upgrades that help enterprises keep pace with growing data capture demands.

2. We will be nickeled and dimed with maintenance and support costs.
We can’t speak for every mobile data capture application on the market, but the Scandit solution is all-inclusive. All necessary system maintenance and support services are provided FREE. And thanks to our cloud solution infrastructure, any issues can generally be resolved remotely and quickly.

3. We will need specific smart devices and platforms.
Scandit technology works with more than 4,000 Android devices, as well as iOS devices including iPhones, iPads and some iPod models. Other compatible platforms include Windows 8.1 and 10, Linux, Xamarin, Titanium, and PhoneGap. In addition, Scandit technology captures a wide range of 1D, 2D, and composite symbologies. Scandit offers developers unparalleled platform flexibility and compatibility.

4. We will need to upgrade our devices.
Scandit solutions do not require the “latest and greatest” mobile devices to operate successfully. Our mobile data capture technology works with devices whose fixed focus cameras have resolutions as low as 240×320.

Myths aside, there really are no barriers to implementing Scandit mobile data capture solutions. Simply download the Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK to start scanning barcodes and capturing data right now. To get more information, contact a Scandit representative.
