How carelogic created a simple, smartphone-based workflow for barcode scanning

Carelogic develop software for optimizing business processes in a variety of different settings. Wanting to offer their retail clients a barcode scanning solution, they were looking for a reliable Barcode Scanner SDK to integrate into their Android app within a short time frame. In addition to an easy-to-understand user interface and accurate results, high scan volumes were an important consideration.

A fixed pricing model was therefore the logical choice. This enabled carelogic to calculate the costs of using the SDK in advance and ensured that higher scan volumes would not increase costs. Taking into account these criteria, carelogic decided to go with the Scanbot Barcode Scanner SDK.

Scanbot offers companies a first-rate barcode scanning solution with many different functionalities, an easy-to-use interface, and highest data protection standards. Years of experience in working with companies from different industries gave our experts valuable insights into barcode scanning requirements and best practices. As a  result, carelogic’s developers were able to implement our modules in a matter of days. Even the UI was adapted to their corporate design.

Carelogic now benefit from high-quality scanning functionalities for different kinds of 1D and 2D barcodes. Leveraging these features, the company provides its clients with a simple way to order products via smartphones and tablets. As a powerful alternative to conventional handheld scanners for carelogic’s clients, the Scanbot SDK is part of a complex digital ecosystem that allows their employees to freely move around the sales floor, gives them instant visual feedback, and directly connects to various software components.

By integrating the Scanbot SDK into their application, carelogic achieved: 

Scanbot’s vision and mission

At the same time, we want to protect users’ personal data, which is why we opted for on-device intelligence. Scan results are encrypted before transmission to keep them safe from any outside attacks. To guarantee maximum privacy, no data is ever sent to Scanbot’s or any other server.

We now strive to build machine learning algorithms that understand all kinds of different document types. Our efforts open up even more possibilities for automated workflows that connect and process data in real time. 

Our initial goal for the Scanbot SDK was for it to read any text-based information via mobile devices – today, this has become a reality. The easy-to-integrate software creates virtually endless possibilities to streamline and facilitate processes for companies, employees, and customers alike, whether in document management, onboarding, sales, or HR.
