Barcode Scanners & Readers

Companion Scanners

What is a companion scanner?

A companion scanner is a lightweight, small barcode scanner that enables a device running an app to capture barcodes by bluetooth pairing.

Companion scanners are a low cost and attractive option for end users, who have often already invested in their PC or Tablet and do not want to replace them just because they need to scan barcodes. 

How does the Companion Scanner work?

The device scans a barcode and stores the data within the device itself. Data collected within the companion scanner is either directly transferred via Bluetooth or through a USB-cable, depending on the device.

What applications are best for the Companion Scanners?

Companion scanners can be used for a variety of applications such as access control, inventory management, asset tracking, visitor registration, or with integration into a point of sale system.
