Click & Collect

No more time-consuming searches in the stock room. After scanning a barcode from a customer’s order, an employee simply hovers the Scandit-enabled device over a shelf of packages to see the correct item highlighted on the screen. It’s our patented MatrixScan AR that does this, significantly reducing order collection and customer waiting times.

In-store Picking

On-line shopping requires fast fulfillment, typically involving workers picking items for customers in stores or large warehouses. To search and find products quickly, pickers using Scandit MatrixScan AR on a smart device, scan many items in a single scan to identify the correct product from a shelf. The productivity gains from these time-savings can be significant.

Price Verification

Wrongly-priced labels on shelves are a potential revenue-loser and legal issue. Being able to instantly check pricing with a scan of a barcode, means human error on the shop floor can be virtually eliminated. The employee simply holds the Scandit-enabled smart device up to the shelf and the AR-feedback displays if the price is correct or not. Our MatrixScan AR feature recognises barcodes and alphanumeric codes.

Scandit - Self Scanning and Checkout

Self-scanning & Self-checkout

Some customers want to Scan-and-Go without waiting in check-out lines. With a Scandit-enabled self-scanning app, shoppers scan products and check-out in their own time with their own smart device or at a self-check-out terminal. This e-commerce style experience in retail aisles also helps retailers maximize floor space and staff productivity.

Augmented Product Information

Shoppers online are used to having all the product information they want at their fingertips, such as reviews, ingredients, allergen & nutritional details or stock availability. Retailers can offer the same convenience in-store by providing a mobile shopping app with augmented reality (AR) that displays information just by scanning a barcode.

Back-of-House Use Cases

Digitalization behind the scenes is a must to boost operational efficiency.  Scandit barcode scanning and AR-overlays are really simple to use and cut the time employees need to do inventory management and receive, sort & find goods. By replacing traditional scanners with software solutions, TCO (total cost of ownership) can be cut by as much as two-thirds  – and that’s on top of the efficiency and flexibility gains.

Search & Find

It can take a lot of time for employees to locate a specific item from a shelf or pile of packages in a packed stock-room. When a smart device using Scandit MatrixScan AR is hovered over stock items, the AR-overlay instantly highlights the correct items on the screen. It’s an easy-to-use and hugely time-saving tool for busy staff.
