The education sector needs to be able to account for students; whether they are sitting in the classroom, checking out a book at the library or even submitting homework. At several stages during a normal academic day, you can implement barcode solutions to help administrators, management teams, lecturers and students.
Gaining insight into a target market requires gathering extensive information about consumers’ shopping behavior combined with their response to marketing stimulus. Market research organizations use automated questioning and incentive research to analyze purchase behavior and shopping patterns.
A user-friendly, easy to implement method to obtain information about consumer behavior is to provide consumers with barcode scanners and ask them to identify the products they bought. The information provides market researchers with valuable insight into the purchase behavior and shopping patterns for any segment of the population.
Barcodes are increasingly prevalent on smartphones, print advertisements, catalogs and merchandise. A printed page can be transformed into a two-way communication channel between market researchers and consumers. Opticon scanners function as a communication tool when consumers scan items linked to a website or an online retailer.
Opticon’s embedded devices provide scanning opportunities for third party products. These miniature scan engines can be integrated into products made by the original manufacturer, as well as products made by other brands. Opticon’s scan engines are commonly integrated into stationary devices where the scanner is at the core of a specific automation task. To protect the scan engine and the electronics from industrial hazards, a completely housed product can be mounted inside the device.

Barcode scanning solutions can help create a quick registration solution resulting in a significant reduction in labor. Connectivity to any enterprise administration software is also available.
Barcode scanning solutions can also monitor business processes. Registering performed tasks and inspection checks against log times provides better understanding of the workflow. Control, registration and data storage can be performed automatically. When the data is available on the central server, it can be used to monitor business processes and consumer behavior.

By using the ESL labels from Opticon Sensors, information about the work processes and stock levels can be transmitted faster and digitally. This makes the project workflow much easier and more flexible for the employees from the quality area and production. When we are looking for a user-friendly solution, we always receive support.
For us it was important that the scanner can scan any number of codes offline and mobile, especially 2D codes, and then transfer them to our existing BDE-system after connecting to the PC.
The M-11 scanner is integrated into our T6 rotation lock model. We chose the M-11 scanner from Opticon Sensoren because it has a very good reading performance, a large scanning area and can read different-sized 'print@home' tickets as well as 'mobile phone tickets' in our tests
With the introduction of the bp loyalty programme (customer card programme) at that time, a scanner that can read from the smartphone was necessary. Therefore, the corporate headquarters made an internal recommendation for the OPI-3601, which was then introduced at the Austrian stations. Since the OPH-1005 was already in use for ongoing inventory work, especially at the end of the year and at bistro stations, the changeover to the checkout scanner was very easy. The OPI-3601 is particularly interesting for our stations because of its compact design, ergonomic handling and its ability to read both 1D and 2D barcodes - even from the customer’s smartphone display.
As the ESL software is freely available, we were able to program and test the entire connection ourselves. In case of problems, however, we still had the exemplary support of Opticon Sensoren. We are very satisfied with the current version of the software and the use of the displays in everyday life.
The main reason for switching to the Opticon M-10 scanner was its ability to read a wide variety of barcodes directly from the smartphone display, while being presented in a customer-friendly and easily accessible way in our stores. Our customers can use the M-10 to easily scan their loyalty card, as well as discount coupons, quickly and easily from their smartphone. The M-10 can also be used universally via USB (similar to a keyboard). The quick availability, especially during the Corona phase, and the possibility to test the device have further strengthened the decision for the M-10 scanner.
With the H-31, we wanted to create a solution that works online without having to programme a stand-alone app for it and immediately acts live in the data stock and can thus do without synchronisation. Opticon stands for functionality and adaptability. The quick adaptability of the development department to find a solution in order to be able to work target-oriented with the product was very helpful.
The ESL from Opticon and the OPAL's ESL software have made work processes simpler, faster and more secure. By implementing the OPAL's ESL software and the ESLs from Opticon, a high level of time savings and professional process optimization of workflows have been achieved.
Due to the good cooperation with Opticon, we managed to deliver an outstanding solution for mobile ordering applications. We combined Opticon's innovative hardware platform with Sensational's Software design expertise to offer our customers the complete package.
Opticon’s ESL solution changes our prices in minutes; it reduced our manual process drastically.
