  5. Gives the barcode-card to the person.

The Barcode Edition is available in three different versions supporting 1D barcodes, 2D codes (QR-codes) and even for RFID codes. Each version comes with a different scanner. You choose which fits perfectly for your unique use-case.

Software independent. Integrate it with yours.

In order to extract and work with the barcode numbers from the photos, we will provide you with detailed developer information.

There’s also third party software and services with built-in support for the Barcode Edition.
