DataScan makes barcode capture easy.

DataScan is designed for maximum flexibility and efficiency – and will remain that way. As such, it is limited solely to reading and sending scanned data.
DataScan has no inventory management system or any other administration functions. Consequently, it is unsuitable for checkout systems, price comparisons, and for the catering sector.

  • Fast, versatile, and reliable.
  • Thanks to CSV, exports can be used in many applications
  • Replaces expensive hand-held devices (MDEs).

Variety of use cases

Whether retailers scan stock, re-order items or run inventory checks – DataScan replaces expensive dedicated devices.

Companies that rent out devices or products log the rented or returned items and quantities by scanning their barcode right there on the spot, and send this data straight to the office.

\nIT administrators or equipment-pool coordinators keep an overview of their devices by scanning the barcode, and can store additional information in their database under a product barcode already on the device.

Sales teams can log items that need to be re-ordered, returned sale-or-return goods or issued samples right there on the spot – all without the need for an additional device or piles of paperwork. After all, you’ve always got your phone with you when you’re on the road.\n
