The patent-pending Scandit Case replaces dedicated barcode scanners at a low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) when used in conjunction with Scandit’s mobile software solutions
London, UK – 1 February 2016 – Scandit, developer of the leading software-based barcode scanning solutions for smartphones, tablets and wearable devices, today revealed the Scandit Case. An ergonomically designed iPhone 6/6s case that works with smartphones and all of Scandit’s mobile scanning solutions, the Scandit Case provides protection during everyday activities and a scanning experience similar to that of a dedicated barcode scanner but with a lower total cost of ownership (TCO). The Scandit Case is currently available for pre-order.
While Scandit’s patented barcode scanning software is engineered to provide enterprise-grade scanning on smartphones even in challenging environments – compensating for glare, motion, extreme angles, for example – the Scandit Case combines high-performance scanning with ultimate ease of use and the ergonomics necessary to support scan-intensive data capture applications across the entire supply chain.
By leveraging the built-in LED and camera on the iPhone for illumination, aiming and image capture, the Case provides a scanning experience comparable to a dedicated scanner, without introducing additional electrical components. The end result is a multipurpose device that is ergonomic, built for everyday protection and available at a fraction of the cost and weight of a dedicated scanner.
The Scandit Case is part of Scandit’s evolving product line, including mobile software and cloud services designed to mobilise mission-critical enterprise workflows across the entire supply chain including Order Entry, Proof of Delivery, Inventory Management and more. Through the introduction of the Case, Scandit is the first company to offer a fully integrated, enterprise-grade mobile data capture solution that combines the versatility of software-based scanning, a powerful cloud-based mobility platform (including capabilities such as geolocation, analytics and app lifecycle management) and the ease-of-use and robustness of dedicated devices.
“Advancements in mobile technology have made it possible to use smartphones in situations where they haven’t traditionally been used,” said Samuel Mueller, CEO of Scandit. “The Scandit Case combines the versatility of software-based mobile scanning with the ergonomics and robustness of a traditional scanner. When combined with our cloud-based mobile app solutions optimised to support mission-critical business processes with smartphones, the Case creates new business opportunities and delivers improved operational efficiencies for the enterprise at a lower TCO.”
