Scandit launches App for barcode scanning

Scandit, developer of software-based mobile data capture solutions, has released a new scanning application called Keyboard Wedge for Android, iOS and Windows. The Scandit keyboard wedge enables companies in retail, logistics and beyond to add to add enterprise-grade barcode scanning capabilities to any app without software 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 SDK or writing new code is often impractical, time-consuming, and/or expensive. Keyboard Wedge is an alternative app-based solution that makes Scandit’s smartphone/tablet camera-based scanning engine available without integration into existing apps.

Keyboard Wedge offers a customizable scanning experience. Users can scan multiple barcodes at once or only scan certain barcodes. On an Android device, they 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.

As a result of Keyboard Wedge’s flexibility and customizability, organizations can deploy barcode scanning at any point in the enterprise without integration concerns. Keyboard Wedge also enables companies to test out barcode scanning for specific use cases without making any changes to app coding or investing in extra development. Now any app can quickly and easily become a scanning app, when and where needed.

“Keyboard Wedge is the next big step in making our data capture technology easier to use for large organizations with existing enterprise implementations”, said Samuel Mueller, CEO of Scandit. “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.”
