Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK
- Scanning 1D/2D barcodes and QR codes in various conditions.
- Database integration
OK Systems has three offices located in Hong Kong and Sweden. Their headquarters in Hong Kong consists of a modest-sized but agile team of tech professionals and is gradually expanding. OK is a user-friendly, AI-powered, end-to-end platform for managing product information, development cycles, and sourcing that make remote supervision and management simple. Their requirement was to build a quick-to-implement and deploy barcode scanner where the users can scan a range of 1D/2D barcodes and QR codes on any product and access its information. So, they tried a few barcode scanner SDKs, and Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK (DBR) offered excellent results. DBR allowed quick implementation and higher accuracy to improve scanning capabilities. Other additional benefits include easy integration, customization, and high performance.
About OK Systems
OK Systems Limited, a Hong Kong Nordic company, is a venture by automation and supply chain experts. They created the OK platform (OK) that offers all the core supply chain management tools to improve the integrity, sustainability, and manageability of global supply chains. Everyone from raw material suppliers, manufacturers, brands, retailers, end customers, etc can use OK.
OK Systems’ vision is a world where sustainability is collaborative, measurable and effortless. So, they’re on a mission to help organisations grow and become more sustainable. Every stakeholder in the supply chain can collaborate and exchange data within minutes on OK. They wanted to enable their users to access information such as the user manual, inspection reports, and more by scanning a product QR code via OK. Their original scanner was designed to scan platform-generated QR codes, also known as OKIDTM. However, post MVP launch, there were requests from clients to enable them to use their existing 1D or 2D barcodes and take challenging conditions like low lighting, glare reflection, and blurred barcodes into account. So they required a scanner for 1D/2D barcodes and QR codes on any product or site.
At the time, OK’s developers were occupied and dedicated to creating vital features for solving bigger problems in the supply chain. Coding from scratch would have taken away the time and resources that were assigned for the new features. Therefore they had to find a solution that would overcome the time constraints and serve the purpose of their platform.
The users’ experience is a significant factor and key consideration when it came to the design of OK. So, they needed a barcode scanner that was quick, accurate, and able to work with multiple devices on various interfaces and browsers. A slow scanner would cause frustration and result in a negative user experience for their customers. Ultimately, they decided to use an SDK for barcode scanning. This SDK would help them build a barcode scanner that scanned barcodes and QR codes of all sizes, in any condition easily, quickly, and accurately.
What Dynamsoft Offered
To begin, OK Systems explored a range of SDKs but none of them delivered satisfactory results and a value-for-money solution simultaneously.
It was then clear that they could not compromise on the quality and wanted an SDK that could be quickly integrated with OK. One of their team members came across Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK online. They used the demo version on our website and were impressed with the speed of the barcode reader. Then, they got in touch with us for DBR. Dynamsoft recognized their requirements and offered them the Dynamsoft Barcode Reader. DBR allowed their developers to create a customizable and easily integrable barcode scanning solution with the essential tools for supply chain management available on a single platform. The users can scan a variety of 1D/2D barcodes and QR codes on any product and gain access to the desired information in no time.
