Why Just Capture Data from Barcodes? Capture Text too

Our Smart Data Capture platform can turn any smart device into a powerful OCR scanner. Read any alphanumeric code – any text size, font or color – including IBANs, automotive VINs plus LOT and REF numbers.

An OCR scanner is typically used to verify retail prices, check passports, validate IDs and check expiration dates. Scandit Smart Data Capture can deliver simultaneous barcode and text scanning on a smart device, for example, to read an address on a package if the barcode is damaged.

Who Uses OCR Scanners?

Businesses from industries such as retail, transport & logistics, automotive, healthcare and manufacturing need to scan and capture a combination of text and barcodes.

Post, Parcel & Express

If a label on a parcel or package is so damaged in transit that the barcode is completely unscannable, an OCR scanner can read the accompanying text instead. OCR scanning capabilities are integrated with the Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK for simultaneous scanning of barcodes and text. Our software scans multiple lines of text on many labels in a single scan from a smart device.
