Scandit Poised to Reinvent Retail Landscape with New Suite of Mobile Apps

Enterprise-ready apps leverage mobile devices to power multichannel retail strategies

San Francisco, 01 October, 2014. Scandit (www.scandit.com), developer of the leading software-based barcode scanning solution for smartphones, tablets and wearable devices, has released an integrated suite of mobile apps to enhance the consumer shopping experience and retail operations. Scandit’s Mobile App Suite for Retail provides a series of fully customizable, cross-platform mobile applications for retail employees and customers including: Clienteling, Mobile Point of Sale (mPOS), Mobile Shopping (mShopping), Self-Checkout, Shopping Lists and Procurement. This suite of retail apps successfully powers multichannel retail strategies from the back of house to the sales floor, and beyond.

Scandit has leveraged the ubiquity of mobile devices and the consumerization of IT trend in the workplace to create a mobile suite that will allow retailers to adopt consumer and employee-facing apps with unprecedented ease for rapid time to market. “In order to compete in today’s environment, retailers need to deliver a highly differentiated mobile experience for shoppers and employees, but many don’t have the in-house resources to develop these applications” said Samuel Mueller, CEO at Scandit. “We deliver an innovative set of fully customizable but functionally complete retail apps, which are easy to integrate with existing systems, allowing the retailer to customize and deploy the apps rapidly—without the high cost of development.”

Scandit’s pioneering app suite has successfully lowered the barrier of entry for retailers to adopt mobility across a variety of use cases. “Retail chains are seeking new and innovative ways to engage customers and manage their operations”, continued Mueller. “Our Mobile App Suite bridges this gap with fully customizable and vertically integrated applications that empower the retailer and the customer simultaneously.”

Built on the success of Scandit’s software-based barcode scanner, which is utilized on over 50 million mobile devices worldwide, the Mobile App Suite for Retail integrates Scandit’s enterprise-grade scanning performance and functionality as a critical component for retail success. It’s a true one-stop shop that retailers can rely on to build out a robust mobile strategy that will engage customers, streamline operations and drive sales.
