Scandit wins Consignor as customer

Scandit, the leading platform for mobile computer vision and augmented reality, is providing Consignor, a multi-carrier shipping platform with 100’000+ customers with its Scandit’s Barcode Scanner SDK for its new Scan App.

ETH Spinoff Scandit has partnered with Consignor to provide them with a barcode library to match the growing scale of their operations enabling them to benefit from its high-performance barcode scanning, and text recognition, and ability to support all major barcode types.

With more than 10,000 customers, Consignor supports the needs of retailers looking to ship, track, scan, receive, return and analyse all types of shipments, both domestically and internationally, and connect with an unrivalled number of carriers around the globe. To support its customers through their digital transformation, Consignor launched the Small App pro to replace the conventional handheld scanner used to scan labels and collect and upload data to the Consignor platform.

For fast and robust scanning, the company has integrated Scandit’s Barcode Scanning technology. Packages can now be scanned on leaving the warehouse and on delivery, with the carrier using the app to upload a time-stamped confirmation and proof of delivery. Unlike other solutions, Scandit’s tool can be used in low light and rugged conditions, as typically found in warehouses, without the risk of error.

“Scandit’s Barcode Scanning has given us the solid platform we need to focus on further innovation of our product and help our customers meet the expectations of end consumers in a more digitalized way,” said Mattias Gredenhag, CTO, Consignor. “There is also a longer-term shift towards hyper-personalization and localization of services, such as offering customers more choice around who delivers their order. Scandit’s scanning library will continue to be a key part of the infrastructure we need to be able to roll out innovative new features, as Consignor continues to expand across Europe and globally.”

“2020 witnessed drastic changes in how delivery companies have interacted with their customers as safety and contactless delivery were prioritized,” said Samuel Mueller, CEO of Scandit. “Retailers are starting to work with smaller and more local carriers, and they need to be able to provide the same high-quality options, visibility and post-purchase experience as they would have with larger and more established carriers. In enabling this, we are pleased to continue helping Consignor support the digital transformation of its customers’ businesses.”
