An Upgrade that Makes a Difference

Most smartphones and tablets have cameras that can be used for data capture. However, these cameras are most likely consumer-grade and not suitable for commercial or industrial use. Scanning with these cameras can be awkward and time-consuming. Adding a companion barcode scanner to a mobile device provides the advanced, enterprise-grade technology for faster and more efficient data collection in a compact, flexible and affordable device. Training new employees who are familiar with mobile devices is also simple with these intuitive, easy-to-use solutions.
