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

Success story Microdea transportation

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.
