Say goodbye to outdated, inflexible hardware today

Your enterprise can gain maximum flexibility at minimum cost by integrating a mobile Scanner SDK into internal or customer-facing apps. Standard hardware scanners are costly to acquire and maintain while offering little room for flexibility in terms of location and applications. Low-cost intelligent devices can quickly be adjusted to newly emerging use cases and enable scanning on the go anywhere in the airport.

With the scanning functionalities of a customer-facing app, passengers can complete certain workflow steps autonomously. A prime example is self check-in through simple Barcode- and MRZ scanning.
