Scandit launches universal barcode scanning solution for mobile devices

LinkedIn +

Scandit, a developer of software-based data capture solutions for mobile devices, has released a new scanning application called Keyboard Wedge for Android, iOS and Windows operating systems. Keyboard Wedge enables companies in retail and logistics to add enterprise-grade barcode scanning to any application without any additional development or integration effort.

Many companies would like to add camera-based barcode scanning capabilities to enable their internal ERP, WMS and POS applications from enterprise software vendors such as SAP, Oracle, JDA, NetSuite and Salesforce to scan on smartphones or tablets. However, integrating a barcode scanner software development kit or writing new code is often impractical, time-consuming, and expensive. Scandit Keyboard Wedge is an alternative app-based solution that makes Scandit’s smartphone/tablet camera-based scanning engine available without integration into existing apps.

Scandit Keyboard Wedge offers a customizable scanning experience. You can scan multiple barcodes at once or only scan certain barcodes. On an Android device, you can scan barcode data into multiple input fields at once. The application is remotely configurable for convenient management of large deployments, and distribution and scanner configuration can be managed through any mobile device management (MDM) solution.

Samuel Mueller, CEO of Scandit, said, “Keyboard Wedge is the next big step in making our data capture technology easier to use for large organizations with existing enterprise implementations. Now there are no longer any technical barriers that prevent users from deploying our scanning technology in major vendor enterprise apps such as ERP, WMS and POS on smartphones or tablets throughout their organizations.”
