Keyboard Wedge enables mobile ERP, WMS, POS solutions to scan via smartphone or tablet camera
San Francisco, CA and Zurich, Switzerland – August 29, 2017 – Scandit, the leading developer of software-based mobile data capture solutions for smartphones, tablets, wearables, drones, robots and other leading-edge devices, is releasing a new scanning application called Keyboard Wedge for Android, iOS and Windows. Keyboard Wedge will be available on August 29, 2017, and enables companies in retail, logistics and beyond to add enterprise-grade barcode scanning to any application without any additional development or integration effort.
Many companies would like to add camera-based barcode scanning capabilities to enable their internal ERP, WMS and POS applications from enterprise software vendors such as SAP, Oracle, JDA, NetSuite and Salesforce to scan on smartphones or tablets. However, integrating a barcode scanner SDK or writing new code is often impractical, time-consuming, and/or expensive. Scandit Keyboard Wedge is an alternative app-based solution that makes Scandit’s smartphone/tablet camera-based scanning engine available without integration into existing apps..
Scandit Keyboard Wedge offers a customizable scanning experience. You can scan multiple barcodes at once or only scan certain barcodes. On an Android device, you can scan barcode data into multiple input fields at once. The application is remotely configurable for convenient management of large deployments, and distribution and scanner configuration can be managed through any mobile device management (MDM) solution.
“Keyboard Wedge is the next big step in making our data capture technology easier to use for large organizations with existing enterprise implementations, ” said Samuel Mueller, CEO of Scandit. “Now there are no longer any technical barriers that prevent users from deploying our scanning technology in major vendor enterprise apps such as ERP, WMS and POS on smartphones or tablets throughout their organizations.”
