Snapshot

Avision Inc. is a top manufacturer of image scanners and multi-function products that cover document, flatbed, network, and intelligent portable scanners. They also provide multi-function peripherals. The company employs more than 700 people worldwide.

Avision opted to use Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK to create new barcode scanning and reading software. This software would be provided for use across many of the company's document scanners sold throughout North America and other parts of the world. Avision said the SDK allowed them to implement barcode technology within a week's time. The team said if they opted to try and do it internally, it could have taken nearly a year.

The new barcode capabilities were added to around 55 Avision scanner models. This included the company's three best-selling models. Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) in the USA and Canada sell these scanners into government, finance and education markets that more frequently use barcode technology.

The SDK used for the barcode software allowed Avision to more easily ensure key features were supported, such as file name and barcode type segmentation. The Avision software is Button Manager V2, which is installed on local computers. It is provided bundled on a disc or via download for free with related scanner purchases.

Getting Going with a Solution

Avision has adopted Dynamsoft's barcode reader software development kit (SDK) to create new barcode scanning and reading software for many of the company's document scanners sold throughout North America and other parts of the world. Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) in the USA and Canada sell these scanners into government, finance and education markets that more and more heavily use barcode technology.

As part of Avision's adoption of Dynamsoft's barcode reader SDK, Dynamsoft will provide full technical support for the barcode reader. Dynamsoft will also provide Avision with any upgrades to the SDK library as they happen. Other terms were not disclosed.

"We opted for a technology partnership with Dynamsoft for their barcode reader SDK and we quickly realized many technical and business advantages. Dynamsoft’s SDK allowed us to implement barcode technology within a week’s time. Had we opted to try and do it ourselves it could have taken nearly a year. Dynamsoft’s SDK not only helped provide the robust software we wanted to develop, it also saved us extensively in development time and money."
