Customers are familiar with smart device functionality, making self scanning a simple and intuitive process.
Retail ecosystems are already built around the barcode as the primary source of product identification. It’s easy for customers to scan barcodes with smart devices and affordable software, pay for the products they buy, and leave the store without visiting a check-out kiosk.
When customers can self-scan and pay for their items without stopping at a checkout kiosk, retailers can operate fewer kiosks and claim more selling space.
According to a recent report, in-store mobile payments may reach $118 billion by 2018, as more consumers make the shift toward digital wallets and mobile payments.
Scandit delivers premium performance even when customers use low-end smart phones for self scanning.
Unlike open source software, Scandit solutions accurately frame and scan blurry, lower quality codes ensuring efficient self checkout.
In addition to a native software development kit for mobile apps, Scandit offers SDK for the Web that enables scanning in the browser without an app and Keyboard Wedge for use with enterprise platforms and corresponding mobile apps that cannot be changed.
