Mobile App Development for Barcode Scanning for Printing Firm

About the Client

The client is a commercial printing company. Headquartered in Tempe, Arizona, they offer a variety of printing services including multi-color and on-demand printing, bindery, digital and conventional stripping, and ElKote finishing.

Business Challenge

Previously, the client used a barcode scanner available from the iOS App Store. However, this barcode scanner had its limitations. One of the most pressing restrictions was its ability to only scan and read a single barcode / QR code at a time. The client wanted to develop a more advanced mobile barcode scanner that could:

  • Scan and read multiple 2D barcodes / QR codes at a time
  • Generate information from 2D barcodes / QR codes in a human-readable format
  • Have the capability to save multiple barcodes / QR codes on a single sheet of paper

Client Benefits

Multiple Barcode / QR Code Scanning Ability

Unlike other similar existing apps, this barcode scanner has the ability to scan and read multiple 2D barcodes / QR codes at a time.

Offline Functionality

With the ability to store data locally, it saves the user time that they otherwise would spend on downloading information from a centralized system and is still usable in absence of an internet connection.

Direct Printing from the App

The app is able to facilitate the printing of QR codes / barcodes or the interpretation of these codes in the form of a text file directly to an AirPrint enabled printer.
