Mobile Data Collection for Word, Excel, Google Sheets, Databases & More

Scan-IT to Office is a highly efficient solution for mobile data acquisition with smartphones and tablets.

Remotely collected data is instantly inserted into Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, Google Sheets and Google Chrome. The new Scan-IT to Office Tools further expands the capabilities by transferring the captured data into any Windows / macOS application (e.g. ERP or inventory solutions) or database accessible via ODBC.

Data such as barcodes, images, GPS-locations or manual entries are captured with Android / iOS devices. Cloud services deliver the data in real time to target applications, databases, documents or spreadsheets on desktop computers. This works regardless of your location, even across multiple offices or countries.

Wireless Barcode Scanner

Wireless Barcode Scanner for Android

The app Wireless Barcode Scanner turns your Android device into a professional wireless barcode imager with outstanding communication features. The app is perfectly suited as cost-saving alternative for handheld barcode imagers; it scans and decodes common linear and 2D bar-codes swiftly and reliably.

Connectivity with arbitrary target systems is guaranteed. The scanned barcodes are available via Bluetooth SPP, TCP/IP and WebSockets (a WebSocket utilizes the direct communication between HTML5 web-pages and the barcode scanner app over TCP, additional software is not required for this purpose).

The app is ready for enterprise wide deployment and volume licensing. The configuration can be automatically imported from files, the use of cryptic configuration barcodes is past. The app can be licensed using Google Play, using TEC-IT's activation server (no Google account required) or via license files based on the device-ID.
