Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK Significantly Improved Pharmacode Reading Accuracy

Updated SDK Now Supports Administrator Controlled Device-Alias To Enable Better Usage Tracking. Also Improved Decoding Accuracy for Reading Pharmacode.

VANCOUVER – July 07, 2022

Dynamsoft has improved the accuracy of barcode symbol decoding support for the Pharmacode barcode symbol primarily used in the pharmaceutical industry.

Improved accuracy for Pharmacode allows Dynamsoft to better address the needs of the pharmaceutical industry. The barcode symbol is used with drug labels as part of packing control systems.

“Optimizing barcode symbol support for applications ideal in the pharmaceutical and telecommunications industries allows us to further address two large markets that can benefit from Dynamsoft’s enterprise-grade barcode reader SDK,” said Amy Gu, CEO and Co-Founder of Dynamsoft. “We will continue to optimize on Dynamsoft Barcode Reader with added symbol support and performance optimizations.”

Dynamsoft also added macOS ARM64 support to the Java edition of the Barcode Reader SDK. This makes Dynamsoft’s barcode solution a true cross-device and cross-platform solution, enabling a seamless transition and consistent user experience across all devices.

In addition, Dynamsoft has enabled application administrators with the ability to add device aliases in order to help differentiate devices for better usage tracking and management. The new capability allows application administrators to manage the application deployed on each device with a concise and human-friendly name. This allows the administrators to take better control of the barcode reading usage statistics of each end-user device.

These new capabilities are available in Dynamsoft Barcode Reader software development kit, version 9.2.

About Dynamsoft's Barcode Reader SDK

Dynamsoft provides its barcode reader SDK to developers to more rapidly and cost-effectively deploy business-critical applications that rely on dependable barcode technology. A demo and trial is available. With the SDK, developers can embed barcode reading functionality in a web, desktop or mobile application using just a few lines of code. This reduces development costs, saves project managers months of added development time, and significantly reduces long-term technical support resource needs and costs. The SDK supports various developer languages: Java, C++, C, .NET, Python, and JS.

The SDK offers built-in support for dozens of the most used barcode symbols. Optional enhanced modules are also available. One is to provide support for Direct Part Marking barcodes (DPM) where the symbol is marked, or etched, on an item for more industrial strength, like automotive parts, instead of a printed label. They require special capabilities to decode, often because of how they are used and elements in the field.

Another add-on module is Dynamsoft Panorama™ where a warehouse manager can receive a stitched image, from a collection of created images, of entire inventories, for a panoramic viewpoint of a warehouse situation, like missed barcode scans and their locations.

Finally, another module includes Intermediate Results Integration. This advanced and unique feature is not found in other barcode SDKs. With it, developers can access several data point results from the decoding process. These “intermediate image results” provide information that advanced users can employ in other workflows to improve efficiency or create new applications. There are many different types of intermediate image results produced in the process of decoding a barcode.

Pricing and Availability

Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK version 9.2 is now available for download from the Dynamsoft website, including a trial version. Pricing can be found at the website. Supported platforms include Windows, Linux, iOS, Android, and JavaScript. The SDK is provided with rich code samples. There are various technical support channels for the SDK, including email, chat, phone, an online knowledge base, and more.
