Aptimyz Transforms Retail ERP with Rapid Browser-Based Scanning using Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK
Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK
Browser-based barcode scanning
- Fast Browser-based Barcode Scanning
- Quick and Easy Integration
Aptimyz is a retail cloud subscription solution that works in partnership with Clover, a global provider of point-of-sale (or "POS") hardware. The company is based across Europe and has clients in Canada, UK, Ireland and the USA.
Aptimyz's primary goal is to provide retailers with the most cost-effective and best-in-class solution to eliminate large initial investments and excessive support fees often associated with POS and back-office management systems.
Aptimyz was building an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) solution with integrated payments to cater to retailers. The Aptimyz team wanted to integrate fast barcode scanning and quick integration into the system, as browser scanning may sometimes be slow.
Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK was a comprehensive solution to Aptimyz's complex scanning challenges.
The Challenge Faced
Developing a high-quality scanning functionality from scratch requires significant engineering, which was one of the crucial challenges for the Aptimyz team. They wanted to avoid the hassle of developing scanning algorithms and to deliver reliable, high-performance barcode scanning capabilities across their solution.
Beyond basic scanning capabilities, they wanted to integrate features, such as controlling the device camera, caching codes, and localization, that integrate natively into the application. Embarking on the project from scratch would have required a substantial allocation of time and resources. Slow browser-based scanning was another challenge that the Aptimyz team encountered.
Choosing Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK vs. Building from Scratch
Developing browser-based barcode scanning from scratch would have taken a considerable amount of time for the Aptimyz team. Hence, after testing several SDKs from multiple vendors, they decided to go ahead with Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK because of the following reasons:
Dynamsoft offers straightforward APIs for scanning functionality that is easy to implement and doesn't require extensive technical expertise or development resources from Aptimyz's engineers. This sped up the time to integrate and kept complexity low.
Dynamsoft's solution is highly flexible, enabling Aptimyz to start with more basic 1D barcode scanning and then upgrade to 2D barcodes, postal codes, QR codes, and other capabilities over time as needed to meet customer or industry requirements.
While full-featured, Dynamsoft's SDK provides options for customizing or extending functionality to meet any requirements specific to Aptimyz's application and customers not addressed out of the box.
Dynamsoft's SDK abstracts away the complexity of interacting with smartphone and device cameras at a low level. It provides an interface to easily trigger scans, enabling lighting and focus features and handling differences between camera capabilities across platforms without Aptimyz needing deep camera expertise.
As a specialized vendor focused on barcode scanning, Dynamsoft keeps its SDK compliant with all major standards, organizations, and privacy, security, and data usage regulations to make sure technology meets the latest guidelines so that Aptimyz's application will as well by using them. This reduces risk and overhead for Aptimyz.
Dynamsoft provides reliable support and assistance for Aptimyz's engineers when they encountered any issues or questions while integrating the SDK.
Dynamsoft's scanning SDK is affordable and offers flexible, scalable pricing based on the capabilities and volume of scans - which suited Aptimyz's needs well at both small and enterprise scales.
Beyond its excellent performance, the clear and comprehensive documentation, coupled with outstanding developer support, significantly accelerated the implementation process. Additionally, we were delighted by the flexibility of Dynamsoft's licensing options, catering to the needs of both individual developers and large enterprises alike. This combination of robust technology, exceptional support, and adaptable licensing made Dynamsoft the ideal choice for our needs.– Charles Major, Chief Product Officer
