The company also announced that it is launching a cloud-configurable barcode scanning solution, which offers powerful new enterprise-ready barcode workflows that can be effortlessly created online.

The new Mobile App Suite for Logistics and Transport consists of mobile app templates and powerful backend services that are ideal for logistics and transportation businesses. Available separately or bundled together, each solution within the Mobile App Suite—Pickup and Delivery; Shipping and Receiving; Asset Management; and Check-In and Boarding—is fully-customisable and cross-platform, allowing businesses to transform smartphones and tablets into enterprise-grade scanning devices without the need to purchase separate standalone barcode scanners. Scandit’s comprehensive selection of customisable mobile app templates speeds time-to-market and reduces costs for companies looking to bring mobile efficiencies to existing operations by eliminating the need to develop purpose-built apps and backend services.

“Transportation and logistics businesses power the flow of goods and services for millions of businesses and consumers every day around the world. The new Mobile App Suite for Logistics and Transport helps these businesses lower costs, increase efficiencies, and boost worker productivity by enabling them to use existing mobile devices in new and powerful ways,” said Samuel Mueller, CEO of Scandit. “By turning a standard smartphone or tablet into an enterprise-ready scanning device, logistics and transportation companies benefit from greater control and visibility into their operations while empowering employees to manage workflows more effectively, greatly enhancing their competitiveness and profitability.”

Scandit’s mobile app solutions for Logistics and Transport enable companies to:

  • Streamline operations and drastically improve tracking processes - Next-generation barcode scanning technology offers a powerful fully-integrated SDK and customisable app templates that enhance product tracking and delivery and enable a range of new services for gaining visibility into logistics and transportation operations.
