How to integrate scanner into your HTML5

Barcode scanning has become an integral part of our everyday lives. Accordingly, there are now numerous types of barcode scanners. Together, they cover a wide variety of applications and symbologies. And the smartphone is one of them.

Today, Barcode Scanner SDKs can be easily integrated into any iOS or Android application. They offer numerous advantages over conventional hardware scanners, including direct visual feedback and the flexibility to scan both 1D and 2D barcodes. But what if enterprises want to enjoy these benefits without a mobile app?

Dedicated hardware scanners are costly to buy and maintain – especially the imager scanners needed to scan QR Codes and other modern 2D codes. Thus, more and more enterprises are deciding to use smartphones as a replacement.

Apart from enormous cost savings compared to imager scanners, mobile devices also enable direct visual feedback and modern strategies like BYOD. With these advantages, smartphones are an effective solution for streamlined digital workflows – and not just in the mobile app space. 

With a JavaScript Barcode Scanner for web applications, you can now offer employees and customers the best possible scanning experience even without a mobile app. You can integrate a Web Scanner in just one business day and take your process optimization to the next level.
