Barcode Scanning on Virtually Any Device

Improve productivity, accuracy, and visibility across your 3PL warehouse with SmartScan, our new web-based mobile scanning application for both enterprise and consumer-grade devices (Android and iOS).

Based on industry best practices for both B2B and omnichannel fulfillment, SmartScan dynamically delivers data to operators so they can seamlessly react to changing priorities and measure warehouse performance in real-time.
