The goal – Streamlining document processing within Microdea’s app „Origin Mobile“

The Ontario-based software company “Microdea” is dedicated to accelerating logistics operations. Offering the mobile application “Origin Mobile” for truck drivers, the main goal is to make dealing with any physical documents more convenient by enabling data capture on the go. When trying to achieve this goal, it became clear that robust document scanning functionalities are crucial.

Up-to-date scanning features replaced the necessity of integrating hardware scanners inside trucks or using those placed at gas stations, which usually delivered low quality at a high price. Truck drivers who could not find access to a hardware scanner used to deliver documents, such as the Bill of Lading, as physical copies to their offices, causing friction and delays within the supply chain. The “Origin Mobile” application now offers a feasible and convenient alternative to these processes by implementing the Scanbot Scanner SDK.

Scanbot’s solution

Through its dedication to digitalizing workflows containing physical paperwork, Scanbot offered the perfect mobile scanning solution for Microdea’s problem regarding their “Origin Mobile” application. By providing a Scanner SDK that includes document scanning, auto-cropping, document detection, and a customizable UI, Scanbot was able to support Microdea on their way to create a fully digitalized workflow for truck drivers in North America.

Snapping a perfect scan became as easy as 1-2-3 since the SDK has a customizable user interface that leads its users to the correct scanning position. Automatic cropping and enhancing filters are extra features that guarantee a workable scanning result that does not require further manual processing - saving lots of time both on the road and in the office!

The workflow after implementing the Scanbot SDK

By implementing the Scanbot Scanner SDK, Microdea was able to:

Smoothly integrate a scanning functionality into “Origin Mobile”.

Guarantee a straightforward workflow through automatic cropping, image-enhancing filters, and a UI that guides even inexperienced smartphone users into the right scanning position.

Accelerate the workflow of truck drivers in North America.

Lower efforts and costs of logistics and transportation companies that are using the mobile application.

Scanbot’s mission and vision

Originally, Scanbot wanted to scan everything: from simple barcodes to freight bills, medical certificates, and invoices - and now it can! There are endless ways this can make things easier for businesses and their customers. Our easy-to-integrate software simplifies workflows in document management, customer onboarding, sales, or HR.

Now, Scanbot applies machine learning to understand each individual document type. This opens up new usage scenarios, such as automated document workflows, and creates even more opportunities to connect and work with data in real-time.

Besides, Scanbot highly values the security of its users' sensitive data. The Scanbot SDK works exclusively with on-device intelligence, which keeps documents safe from any external or man-in-the-middle attacks. No data is ever stored on Scanbot's servers or any third-party servers, satisfying the highest data protection standards.
