The service enables barcode scanning by mobile phones using built-in cameras without additional hardware. It resolves and validates scanned barcodes in real time, collecting user data for every scan of a code using the service. Hosted services include management of scan metrics and databases created as scans are logged.
API methods support retrieval of XML data from a barcode scan and return of lists of services to be accessed, devices with access, and location where the scan occurred. Methods also allow creation of questionnaires for display in response to barcode scans.
