Store associates have to constantly scan barcodes throughout the day for many different tasks.
But regardless of environment or use case – the barcode scanning engine must perform to the highest standard.
The videos below demonstrate how a smartphone powered by Scandit’s Barcode Scanner SDK excels across different situations – both front and back of store.
Keeping constant track of store inventory
It is now commonplace to fulfill online orders from a store. So it is essential for them to keep track of inventory.
In this example, we show how a Scandit-powered iPhone SE can quickly go through a rack of clothes and scan all of the barcodes.
Here the associate quickly runs through clothes on the rack, scanning barcodes with the device. With every correct scan, the app provides on-screen notifications.
The video below shows how fast a Scandit-enabled smartphone can scan a bank of shoe boxes on a stock room shelf.
BOPIS – Augmented Reality and MatrixScan bring speed and efficiency
At the pandemic’s beginning, retailers had to deal with a surge in online sales and store closures.
Many retailers dealt with this by launching or accelerating new initiatives, including BOPIS (Buy Online Pickup in Store), ROPIS (Reserve Online Pickup in Store).
In this situation, store associates equipped with a Scandit-powered smartphone can easily find the right item for customer pickup using MatrixScan and AR (see video below). While our ID Scanning capability provides additional assistance to quickly confirm the customer’s age if the product is, for example, age-restricted.
Stop wasting store associates time with failed scans
Stores are made to suit the human eye – they often have bright artificial lighting – essential for both walkways and product displays.
But this can provide a tough environment for barcode scanning. For example, reflective lighting can obscure the barcode on a product with shiny packaging.
And there are a huge number of barcodes available in-store – printed on all sorts of surfaces, sizes and types. Some can even be wrapped around corners or damaged.
In an environment like this the smartphone scanning application needs to scan the first time, every time.
A store associate may need to scan hundreds of items in a shift. So the barcode scanner needs to handle angles, light glare, and more rather than leave the user to deal with the problem.
