Smart-Scan™ Developments -
ID Integration's Smart-Scan™ technology transforms a barcode scanner's one-button productivity into real, measurable return on investment within a week or even a single day. 

1-Button Productivity = 1-Week ROI

The barcode scanner is likely the lowest cost item within any UID implementation plan, and the quickest means of achieving actual Return-On-Investment (ROI) through process automation.   Smart-Scan™ enhances the primary means of achieving ROI through the reduction of manual keystrokes and data input errors.  Key improvements released this year include:

  • Creation of Support & Demo Website
  • Introduction of new User Interface for LCD Display Scanner models
  • Support for Microscan, Siemens, Brady, Tyco, Opticon scanners.
  • Scanner Trade-In Program (see Industry News)
  • Release of DOD-Secure Smart-Scan™ (see Industry News)
  • High Resolution Smart-Scan™ now part of UID2Register (see JCL News)

Smart-Scan™ Demo and Support Website
We have created a demonstration and support website to educate customers about Smart-Scan™ technology. has extensive information to answer the vast majority of technical, sales, & development questions. 

We've even added a "What's New" Tab to keep users up to date on new Smart-Scan applications, software releases, sales specials.

Visit  to see how Smart-Scan is helping to fulfill the promise of ROI through barcodes - whether your organization is involved in UID implementation or not. 

Smart-Scan™ Display Enhances Security & Usability
ID Integration brings enhanced usability and security to bar code scanning via a new user interface for the CodeCorp CR3500 and Microscan HE45T.  Key features include:
  • Accurate, single-character display of non-printable ASCII 0-31 character codes. 
  • Dynamic display prompt indicates current Smart-Scan operation mode:  (UID, UII, ParsedUID, DataLookup, WebSearch, etc.)
  • Batch data supports single record upload for UID management software applications (COLTS, MCDS, QTCS, IDWorx, etc.)
  • Auto batch data upload disabled to eliminate possible PC file deletion due to UID data misinterpretation.
  • Quick access to settings for prefix, suffix, UID Parsing, OCR & Image Capture

Visit (Overview/Key Advantages) for a demonstration of these value-added Smart-Scan™ capabilities.

Smart-Scan™ supports hardware from Brady, Microscan, Siemens and others.  
Smart-Scan™  technology has expanded to scanner hardware from Code Corp, Brady, Tyco, Opticon, and the DPM scanner models (HE4xT) from Microscan.   Now you can upgrade, rather than replace your hardware investment with the purchase of a Smart-Scan software application suite.  Visit (Ordering Tab), and look for P/Ns SWSCIDI-Sx and  SWSCIDI-Mx .

If you are considering the purchase of a new scanner with out-of-the-box UID productivity, pre-configured Smart-Scan models from ID Integration provide the most economical options.  Visit the "Ordering" tab on for a complete list of models, features, accessories, and pricing.
