Are paper documents a big part of your business? If you are manually capturing and moving information on shipping labels, bills of lading, invoices, work orders and other documents, your workforce must spend time managing the paperwork and delivering it to a department that will then manually enter the data into a computer. The impact of this slow movement of information can ripple throughout your organization and ultimately affect your bottom line by inserting time and cost into your business processes, increasing the opportunity for errors, reducing customer service quality and increasing billing cycle times. But imagine if your workers could accurately capture the contents of an entire form with the single press of a button — including bar codes, text fields, phone numbers, images, signatures, and even checkboxes — and instantly send that information to your business applications. You have just imagined the power of SimulScan Document Capture. With this powerful software application on your Zebra Technologies’ Android mobile computers, you’ll get instant visibility into information, the moment it is captured, streamlining your business processes and driving efficiencies throughout your operations. No more paperwork for your workforce to manage. No more data entry. No more struggling to scan a specific bar code on a form with multiple codes. The result? Increased workforce productivity. Faster cycle times. “Greener” operations. Cost-effective compliance with recordkeeping requirements. Better customer service. And improved cash flow.
Powerful Template Builder
This cloud-based utility provides an easy-to-use graphical interface that allows you to quickly and easily define the data you want to capture on a standard form. Fields can be grouped if needed to meet the requirements of your back-end application — such as city, state and zip code. A template can be deployed to any number of mobile devices. And templates can be packed together to create multi-templates. The Template Builder helps you identify and validate the data you want to capture. You can upload, edit and store templates for quick retrieval. And you can easily install template XML files on your mobile devices easily manually or via an MDM tool, making deployment easy for any size enterprise — from small businesses to large multi-office operations.
Two ways to capture information
Camera or 2D imager Workers can use either the onboard color camera or the 2D imager to capture documents. The color camera is point-and shoot, providing an ideal user experience for structured and unstructured data. Imagers provide enterprise-class performance when intensive bar code capture is required. And since imagers provide an aiming function instead of point-and-shoot, they are the ideal choice for picklist applications, where users need to capture just one specific bar code when other bar codes are present. Regardless of whether the camera or imager is utilized, you can enable a feedback loop that allows users to review the results and determine if they want to accept it or retake it.
