We were pleased to see that Famoco's FX100+ device has significantly improved the reading speed and broadened the sweet spot. Their purpose-built NFC reader runs Android OS 4.4 (KitKat) and can be [...]

Camera Scan with SD Pro: Fast Android and iOS barcode scanner

iOS and Android devices have taken over the asset-tracking enterprise. Everyday, developers create new revenue-generating services for these platforms. They are tracking, validating, authenticating, and collecting data in new ways. Why are iOS and Android devices so convenient? Because deploying purpose-built computers to every worker is a logistic nightmare. It’s also prohibitively expensive. However, codeREADr’s SD PRO camera scan engine for both the Android and iOS barcode scanner is revolutionary. codeREADr’s technology enables us to capture, collect, analyze, and act upon previously unattainable data: Workers can freely download the codeREADr app to their own smartphones. Then, they can enter their authorized app credentials. Finally, they can scan on behalf of their employer or client. Everyday over, 10,000 app-users do just that. They mostly use their own devices, though some use provisioned devices. What’s changed? The roadblock for data capture was performance. Using just the device’s built-in camera wasn’t satisfactory. In that regard, CodeREADr’s SD PRO camera scan engine has been transformative, for both the Android and iOS barcode scanner. UID tags Take UID tags printed with standard or inverted DataMatrix barcodes (examples). The typical app reads them quite slowly and inaccurately (if at all). However, thanks to the SD PRO camera scan engine, our app reads theses codes for both the Android and iOS barcode scanner INSTANTLY. Video We scanned sample UID tags manufactured by a leading supplier, Camcode. Watch this short video for a demonstration.   Alter Scan There is another added benefit. CodeREADr’s integrated cloud-based Web service offers the ability to alter scan values and responses in-app. It also lets users alter how data is exported (in a template). Simply put, the scanned data from a UID tag can be formatted however clients need it. Export Data That data can be merged with lots of information: Timestamps, GPS coordinates, photos, or textual data collected at the time of scanning, for example. Those scan records can then be filtered, shared, exported or inserted into local or cloud-based databases hosted by third parties or clients. […]
