Scandit Launches Global Partner Program

San Francisco, May 27, 2014 Scandit (www.scandit.com), developer of the leading software-based barcode scanning and data capture platform for smartphones, tablets and wearable computing devices, today announces the formal launch of the Scandit Global Partner Program. The program is designed for systems integration and application development firms worldwide that want to provide sophisticated barcode scanning functionality and vertical industry solutions based on Scandit's automatic identification and data capture (AIDC) platform for mobile devices as part of their offerings for their customers.

Scandit has emerged as an innovator and leader in the mobile scanning market with its enterprise-grade, software-based scanning platform, which enhances and strengthens mobile device-based solutions for many recognized retailers, manufacturers, logistics companies and other enterprises. With this partner program, Scandit is enabling systems integrators and application developers to provide their clients with high-quality mobile barcode scanning and data capture functionality for their vertical industry needs. Leveraging Scandit's scan technology and other mobile AIDC components and services expands business opportunities while decreasing time to market and lowering implementation risk since partners do not need to build these mission-critical components from scratch or rely on lower-quality components. Scandit supports its partners through ongoing software updates, joint marketing opportunities, technical support and other kinds of collaboration that help ensure success for partners, and, ultimately, their clients and end-users.

"As an early member of Scandit's partner program, we have been very pleased with the ease of integration of Scandit's Barcode Scanner SDK," said André Horstmann, head of mobile development at Switzerland-based systems integration firm youngculture. "Our offerings for clients, such as Ex Libris in the retail industry, have been greatly enriched through the inclusion of highly accurate, reliable scanning from any smartphone device, resulting in increased customer engagement and a true omni-channel shopping experience."

In addition to application development partners, Scandit also works with development frameworks that enable both integration partners and clients to easily develop cross-platform mobile applications, leveraging their existing technical expertise. Popular frameworks that Scandit currently partners with include Appcelerator, PhoneGap and Xamarin.

"We're very excited about the relationships we have already formed with systems integration and mobile application development firms, which allow us to extend our technology to broader audiences, both business and consumer," said Daniel Thalhammer, head of partnerships at Scandit. "Moving forward, with the launch of the Scandit Global Partner Program, we plan to deliver increased value to our existing partners while expanding our network to better serve clients across a wide variety of vertical markets and geographies through our award-winning AIDC platform."

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
