Zebra’s SimulScan is a set of Productivity Tools that enables workflow optimization in your data capture processes. Create a Template to match your workflow & Integrate SimulScan’ s APIs to enable your workers to capture & parse multiple points of data directly into your native application in a single step.
Travel agencies are using SimulScan to capture passport and travel documents. Supply chains are using SimulScan to capture multiple barcodes on labels in one scan. Field workers are using SimulScan to capture check boxes indicating the urgency of customer issues giving their business immediate insight to field needs. Manufacturers are using SimulScan to scan 10+ barcodes in a single scan. Transportation and logistics companies are leveraging SimulScan to digitize proof of delivery forms and signatures. Retailers are leveraging SimulScan to speed up inventory counting. Take a few minutes and see how SimulScan can improve your workflow and experience.
With this powerful image capture technology, you can take process automation to the next level and achieve substantial increases in worker efficiency, processing accuracy and cycle times. When SimulScan is incorporated in your Android devices, workers can capture the contents of an entire form in a single scan — including barcodes, text fields, phone numbers, images, signatures, and even checkboxes — and instantly auto-populate business forms with that information. SimulScan is an end-to-end data capture solution for extracting critical data from documents.
Developers can easily integrate SimulScan into their applications- visit the Developers Section to learn more!
Allow your workers to effortlessly, reliably & accurately capture, decode & parse barcode data directly into your native Android Application. Reduce Scan Time, Worker Training, and the need for (a) your application to reject the wrong barcode and (b) workers having to use their hands to block surrounding barcodes when aiming at a specific barcode.
A Single Specific Barcode
Multiple Barcodes, whether specific barcodes or just a known quantity
With SimulScan the solutions are endless! Reduce manual entry & use:
No more waiting for workers to return paper documents back to the office at the end of their shift, reduced manual entry & instant access to the information you & your customers need. --- Enable your Workers to Capture*
from your Structured Document*.
SimulScan was built to digitize data. It was developed to fulfill two fundamental use cases:
1. Digitize one or multiple “data fields” structured in a specific and consistent way on a form or label.
Simply put, the form below is an example of a structured form. The data on the form will change, but the location of each data field (barcode, alphanumeric characters, signature, etc) is fix – it does not move. Because the location of each data field does not move, users can create a SimulScan “Template” allowing them to capture and correctly identify every field on the form below in one scan. The Template allows a developer to uniquely identify each data field, enabling the ability to input each field of data into fields within the workers application. This means that SimulScan can capture (1) barcode information, (2) printed text (addresses, names and account numbers), (3) checked boxes, and (4) and an image of the signature seamlessly.
2. Digitize a single type of data (i.e. multiple barcodes) or a single data field (i.e. an address) that may or may not be on a structured form.
Simply put, you may not want to capture an entire form, or the form/label might not have a clear structure. For those situations, we’ve enabled the ability to create a Template specific to the SimulScan feature that is needed. For example, a SimulScan “Template” can be created for OCR (Optical Character Recognition) to capture an address on a form. Another Template can be created to capture two or more barcodes in a single scan. Another Template can be created to capture the MRZ data from travel documents. These are all examples of when only one type of data (multiple barcodes, Character Recognition) needs to be captured and digitized without the need to identify the location of specific data field on a form or label.
