Scandit, a technology platform for mobile computer vision and augmented reality (AR), has announced that SAS (Scandinavian Airlines System) has integrated its powerful scanning software into their new Ground Handling App for smartphones, to replace built-in scanners and upgrade ground workflows.
The mobile app (developed by Stockholm-based Objective Solutions) enables mobile scanning of boarding passes, passports, meal vouchers and baggage tags. SAS deployed the Scandit-powered app to their three Scandinavian airport hubs: Stockholm Arlanda, Oslo Gardermoen, and Copenhagen Kastrup.
“We chose Scandit for its quality and flexibility,” said Fredrik Buxfeldt, Head of Digital Operations IT at SAS. “In addition to barcode scanning and OCR (optical character recognition) in mobile apps, Scandit also enables barcode scanning in websites, so our employees can also use mobile scanning from a browser if they don’t have the mobile app loaded.”
