Use Case

Scanning of product barcodes by employees for improved business processes and restocking.



Development Platform




Carelogic want to help their customers improve product tracing inside their stores by offering them a fast, accurate, and easy-to-use application for barcode scanning. To make the processing of products with more than one barcode more efficient, they would like to enable end users to scan 3 to 5 barcodes at once.



Since the amount of barcodes scanned fluctuates considerably, peaking at 150,000 barcodes in a single day, carelogic were looking for a solution with a fixed pricing model without additional costs. Additional requirements were an easy integration into their Android app using Xamarin.Forms, accurate scanning results, and fast barcode recognition.



The Scanbot SDK supports a broad range of barcode types and delivers fast and accurate results, even when scanning multiple barcodes at once. It can easily be integrated into existing Android applications and offers unlimited usage for a fixed annual fee. This makes it the perfect solution for carelogic’s use case.

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.

A closer look at carelogic’s efficient barcode scanning workflow

  1. To start the checkout process for a smartphone the customer would like to buy, the salesperson opens the mobile app.
  2. Touching the “Scan” button activates the Scanbot SDK.
  3. The barcode is read by the scanner and its contents are transmitted to carelogic’s own API.
  4. The API fetches the corresponding database entry and feeds it back into the app.
  5. The salesperson can now perform additional actions, e.g. checking out the product for the customer.

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

  • A smartphone-based barcode scanning workflow
  • Efficient multi-barcode scanning
  • Quick delivery of new features to their clients
  • More than 100,000 barcode scans per day

Scanbot SDK’s vision and mission

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.

We now build computer vision algorithms and machine learning models 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.

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.
