| News

Searching shelves of boxes

Zurich, June 28, 2023Scandit, the leader in smart data capture, today announced the launch of MatrixScan Find, an out-of-the-box solution designed to help frontline workers and consumers find items they are looking for faster, using augmented reality overlays on smart devices. Part of the Scandit Smart Data Capture platform, MatrixScan Find provides an assisted search experience to improve efficiency and accuracy compared to manual methods. The solution will support workers in retail, last mile delivery and logistics as well as offering consumers an innovative and engaging product discovery experience.

Frontline employees often struggle to find the items they need to pick or pack, especially among similar-looking items such as spices, cosmetics, shoe boxes, DIY items or generic brown boxes. Their work takes place in a time-pressured environment as they must deliver goods and services accurately for customers, while also managing changing levels of consumer demand. Through augmented reality overlays, MatrixScan Find visually aids users to spot what they are looking for faster. For the business, it improves productivity and efficiency, while workers are freed to focus on value-add activities such as engaging with customers or managing inventory more effectively.

MatrixScan Find is a pre-built interface, designed to simplify the implementation of innovative search experiences, using augmented reality functionality which is easily integrated into existing native applications with just a few lines of code. This allows IT teams to quickly build intuitive user experiences for both employees and customers.

“When we demonstrate augmented reality smart data capture solutions in real-world scenarios, customers immediately understand the impact innovative and futuristic augmented reality solutions can have, revolutionizing workflows and making human error nearly impossible,” said Christian Floerkemeier, CTO and co-founder of Scandit. “Scandit has a deep understanding of the business processes, user experience and computer vision technology necessary to successfully implement augmented reality into enterprise applications, and with MatrixScan Find we are introducing another out-of-the-box offering to help companies without the necessary technology expertise in-house provide exceptional offerings to support workers and delight customers.”


The end of human error?

Searching for one item among many similar objects can be extremely frustrating, and result in multiple errors. For example, when packing up pre-ordered goods for dispatch, logistics and delivery workers must access staging areas filled with identical crates. In-store order fulfillment must be done at pace, as store associates scan shelf after shelf of products to pick the correct item. Finding the right order is time-intensive and prone to error, irritating both for the employee and the waiting customer. MatrixScan Find shifts the tedious task of manual search to technology by providing clear on-screen guidance in an instant, empowering store associates to easily assist shoppers and improving customer satisfaction and loyalty.

MatrixScan Find can also be offered directly to customers via a retailer’s application, so shoppers can discover more about their preferred products through an engaging and intuitive augmented reality interface available on their own device.

Supporting flexible workforces with customizable user interface

Employers in retail, logistics and fulfillment are struggling with workforce attraction and retention, and must also scale capacity to manage peaks and troughs in demand during peak season. With MatrixScan Find in place, team members are supported and guided in their operational tasks, no matter how new they are to the business, or whether they are joining on a short-term contract.

The built-in UI in MatrixScan Find is designed to address the specific workflows in retail, logistics and delivery, with carefully designed features including customizable color overlays to pinpoint individual items, pause functionality, an item carousel for precise detail provision and customizable notification alerts.

Available now on iOS and select Android devices, MatrixScan Find leverages MatrixScan technology to locate, track and decode multiple barcodes simultaneously. MatrixScan Find can also be integrated with a few lines of code into Scandit SparkScan to create a complete scanning solution which includes both item location and scanning.
