Product overview

Scandit barcode scanning software turns smart devices into high-performance and cost-efficient smart scanning tools. With little to no integration effort, upgrading the effectiveness and capabilities of your scanning workflows is as simple as choosing the solution that fits into your IT environment, testing it and deploying it to users.

Giving workers unmatched scanning performance enables you to automate processes and improve worker productivity and satisfaction – whether scanning single barcodes fast and ergonomically or enabling powerful features like batch scanning of multiple barcodes and augmented reality (AR). It also reduces the total cost of ownership with software-first flexibility that runs on any smart device.

Scandit offers two approaches to support any development environment and timeline:

  • No-code (Scandit Express app): Scan directly from the keyboard to any input field or a sharable CSV file from within any existing app – even those you cannot modify.
  • Native/cross-platform SDKs and Web SDK: Turn smart devices into high-performance barcode scanners quickly from within your existing development environment:
    • Pre-built components, designed for optimal user experience (UX) across various use cases, to get up and running fast
    • Fully customizable software libraries to tailor features and experiences to your needs.

Why choose Scandit barcode scanning software?

Scandit barcode scanning software is built for businesses needing a fast, accurate and powerful barcode scanning solution that deploys quickly and excels under challenging enterprise scanning environments.

Scanning speed, project timelines and tech stack support are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to scanning integration. Building an enterprise application takes three to nine months, on average, and common implementation gaps in barcode scanning can disrupt schedules. Incorrect symbology settings and inefficient user interactions can significantly contribute to project delays, low adoption rates and poor performance.

Our no-code apps and native and web SDKs are designed to avoid these issues, and ensure good user experience, effective data capture and greater user adoption in enterprise environments.

The key benefits are:

  • Unmatched speed: single-scanning speed of 480 scans per minute. Scandit outperforms other scanning software solutions on any device and with any barcode.
  • Intuitive pre-built scanning user interfaces: including on-screen guidance and haptic feedback, backed by extensive user testing and a team of UX practitioners.
  • Advanced decoding algorithms: handle the toughest situations with industry-leading >99% accuracy. Scan in low light, at awkward scan angles and scan torn, tiny or shrinkwrapped barcodes.
  • Ergonomic interface design: ensures comfortable user operations under long-term, repetitive use.
  • Developer-friendly solutions: remove technology stack barriers for IT and engineering – with time-to-integrate on the order of minutes to days for pre-built and no-code solutions.
  • Advanced features to improve efficiency: for example, batch scanning of multiple barcodes at once, counting them, finding the desired item instantly and using AR to understand your stock and products.
  • Coverage of all major barcode symbologies: including UPC, EAN, Code 39, Code 128, ITF, Code 93, Codabar, Databar, MS1 Plessey, QR codes, DataMatrix, PDF417 and Aztec codes.
  • Broad device support: enterprise-grade performance on over 20,000 models of smart devices – including low-end devices without autofocus cameras.
  • Extensive framework support: support for all common operating systems, programming languages and development environments.

How enterprise teams deploy Scandit solutions

Here are some examples of how teams use Scandit solutions to upgrade their barcode scanning capabilities:

  • Teams using traditional dedicated barcode scanners: Whether nearing end-of-life or after too many employee complaints, Scandit makes switching to low-cost commodity smart devices fast and easy. Our no-code apps and pre-built UIs streamline the transition and allow teams to deploy new advanced features such as AR and batch scanning.
  • Teams locked into an existing, unmodifiable enterprise app: Rather than remain stuck to an app’s functionality that can’t be modified, such as those from a third-party vendor or a legacy system, Scandit adds barcode scanning capabilities instantly with no coding required.
  • Teams wanting to swap out the barcode scanning component of their enterprise app: Scandit’s customizable SDKs allow teams to easily upgrade scanning performance, accuracy and features in their current app, including integration and long-term maintenance support.
  • Teams integrating barcode scanning into an app for the first time: Scandit’s expertise in building barcode scanning UIs for specific workflows ensures rapid integration and features that help, rather than hinder, user adoption and efficiency.
