Manufacturing Innovation with Smart Data Capture

We help manufacturers re-engineer operational processes – like goods received, inventory management, distribution, asset tracking and field maintenance. Scandit Smart Data Capture on smart devices provides actionable insights and automates end-to-end operational processes by capturing data from barcodes, text, IDs and objects.

Track Parts in Real-Time From Anywhere

End-to-end parts tracking can be optimized down to serial number, worker and customer by equipping every employee with a powerful scanning and augmented reality-enabled app on a smart device.

Boost Efficiency with Reduced Human Error

The right material gets to the right production line and shipments are correct, when employees are empowered to track materials and goods with unmatched data capture speed, accuracy and real-time information.

Reduce Costs with Future-Proof Software Solutions

Replacing inflexible single purpose scanners with the Scandit Smart Data Capture Platform and smart devices reduces hardware costs immediately. And new levels of efficiency and productivity go straight to the bottom line.

Warehouse Management Use Cases

From goods-in to goods-out, receiving and inventory counting workflows can be streamlined with smart devices empowered with smart data capture. Employees can do multiple tasks with one smart device – including receiving, picking, inventory checking , handling returns – With augmented reality (AR) overlays highlighting special handling instructions, assembly, packing is optimized.

Inventory Management

Count stock inventories up to 10x faster with MatrixScan Count

Goods received at the warehouse are scanned using a smartphone and tracked throughout assembly and production. Scandit MatrixScan Count completes inventory checks faster than with dedicated scanners by scanning multiple barcodes at once. An augmented reality (AR) overlay then displays intuitive real-time feedback and information needed to manage, order and replenish stock levels, avoiding out-of-stock production stoppages.

Receiving and Put-away

Quickly receive, sort and store goods for easy retrieval

Scanning multiple barcodes at once reduces the normal bottlenecks in receiving and put-away goods and the arduous process of ensuring order and items received match. Workers can scan all items received simultaneously, often entire pallets, ensuring it matches what was ordered with MatrixScan Count, saving hours of time.

Pick different products at speed with a single device

Components can be picked rapidly from wall, shelf or tote bins. Workers scan the relevant barcode, point the smartphone at the wall or bin and the device highlights the correct item. With smart data capture, manufacturers can enhance workflows by augmenting pick-faces, scanning multiple codes at once and effortlessly scanning challenging barcodes

Handling Instructions

Look-up special handling requirements in seconds

Ensure employees deal appropriately with items marked for special handling. After scanning a barcode with a Scandit-enabled mobile device, workers instantly see an AR-overlay of any special instructions in real-time, for example about how to handle the item or the appropriate storage requirements.

manufacturing and shipping


A manual process digitally automated

Packing is a major but laborious element of the manufacturing process. In this time-consuming task, workers must pack orders into the correct box or pallet, print the shipping label and scan it. Scandit Smart Data Capture helps pack orders with speed and efficiency by enabling fast, accurate and ergonomic barcode scanning with any smart device.

Assembly and Production Use Cases

Scandit’s high performance scanning on any smart device makes the tracking of products, parts and equipment more transparent from the warehouse to line-side, assembly, production and distribution. Workers access assembly instructions with AR-overlays on their device screens to streamline the assembly process.

Product & Equipment Information Look-Up

Get real-time information on any product from anywhere

Augmenting barcodes with an AR-overlay of real-time instructions on the smart scanning device via MatrixScan, provides a versatile information look-up functionality. An employee (or other authorized person) can instantly retrieve information about the product or unit, to support quality assurance procedures, which may vary by the product being assembled - a quick scan highlights the necessary next steps for workers.

Parts Installation and Tracking


Improve the traceability of parts on the assembly line

Tracking barcoded assets as they progress through multiple stations on the factory floor is useful for material and parts traceability, and also for installation tracking. Scandit software scans Datamatrix codes - etched onto metal with laser - easily on over 20,000 models of smart device.

Augmented Reality Assembly instructions

Parts information verification

Embed QA into the assembly process with smart scanning

On the assembly line itself, augmented reality (AR) overlays give workers assembly instructions direct to their mobile device screens. So QA can be embedded during assembly - a worker scans the part to be installed, verifies that it’s the correct one, and also can access specific installation instructions and check quality requirements. It’s an especially useful feature of smart scanning for multi-product assembly lines where procedures differ for different products.

Asset Management with Scandit

Line Side Replenishment

Efficient and seamless replenishment

During line side replenishment, efficiency is essential. Here workers empowered with Scandit-enabled smart devices can quickly and accurately scan bins and boxes to order parts needed by assembly workers, seamlessly creating warehousing assembly orders. Scandit ensures scanning performance in even challenging environments, including damaged labels, at distance, awkward angles and with glare or shadow.

Plant Service & Maintenance with Scandit

Plant Service & Maintenance

Track factory floor parts and maintenance schedules easily

A worker looks up information about an installation or equipment, or checks-in to a location to report carrying out an inspection, using a scanning-enabled mobile device. Each replacement part or equipment used during maintenance can be quickly scanned and recorded. Augmented reality (AR) feedback displays crucial information such as previous event and planned works, maintenance dates and manuals, and tracking of installed and replaced parts.

Customer Engagement Use Cases

In the field, smart data capture technology enables manufacturers to engage with customers. Pre-scheduling the servicing of goods is faster with customer self-scanning, while product information look-up tells customers all they need to know about the product and any associated warranties.

Product Registration

Fault-reporting and warranty registration

Scanning a product barcode through a web browser linked to a corporate website is an easy way to register product data to take advantage of warranties and let manufacturers see how the product is performing in the field. The same simple scan can also speed-up fault-reporting by customers.

Product Information Look-Up with Scandit
