Barcode Scanner SDK

Experience the most reliable and fastest barcode scanner in your app

Would you like to make your workflows intelligent and scan barcodes with smartphones that are more connected than your old hardware scanners? Then your best solution is to integrate a Barcode Scanner SDK into your mobile application. Our SDK enables you to recognize and extract data from the most common QR code and barcode formats. Our Barcode Scanner SDK comes as a flat license model. Thus, you will pay a fixed amount annually and benefit from an unlimited number of installs and scans.

How to scan barcodes

barcode mobile scanner in business app
  1. Launch the Scanbot SDK from anywhere in your app
  2. Hold your device over the barcode you want to recognize
  3. The SDK automatically reads and decodes the data in less than a second

Our Barcode Scanner SDK can also capture the label, document, machine-readable zones and more around the barcode. And you can even recognize the text on the document without a network connection with our offline OCR solution. Create custom workflows and automatically capture data which you previously had to enter manually or did not have at all.
