Fast & accurate capture of one-line data

Analog data can only be processed automatically if it is captured in an editable format first. The Data Scanner SDK allows you to extract any single-line text or number. Additionally, you can define your own recognition patterns. This lets you read, for example, license plates, voucher codes, or banking data precisely and within milliseconds. Add data scanning to your app and cut manual data entry costs now.
