NC Company Overview
Scandit is a technology company that focuses on augmented reality and computer vision, using it to create innovative new methods for businesses to offer new and exciting ways to shop for their customers and to manage things like warehousing, logistics, and delivery. Scandit has created technology that can capture and read barcodes, QR codes, and also text, images, and other visual data. This can be applied in a number of ways and can be used by consumers using their mobile devices or wearables and can also be used for scanning products and packaging.
