Barcode technology has revolutionized control of assets and knowledge across the world

The utilization of Barcodes has grown across several sectors. Organizations are now utilizing them for identification and tracking of inventory and assets alike. Not all sectors require a high volume of barcode scanning, therefore a lower cost software solution provides the capability required. Getac KeyWedge Barcode Reader Utility caters for the need without the higher cost of dedicated barcode reader.


KeyWedge makes camera-based barcode scanning cost-effective

With our software you can add barcode scanning capability to Getac devices utilizing the rear camera, enabling easy rollout of asset tracking and identification capabilities across your organization at very little cost. There’s no need to buy or carry additional devices. With our software simply aim the rear camera and scan a barcode (or multiple barcodes) automatically with a single click – it’s that simple.​

KeyWedge provides one-click scanning via the app icon or a programmable hardware button. Multiple codes can be scanned and stored in sequence. A torch function is enabled for low-light conditions. Diverse scan modes and an easy-to-use Configuration Wizard are also available. Custom UPC schemes can be accepted (with most common schemes pre-programmed).
