What Developers Are Saying:

"We required a barcode reading solution for our Point of Sale app, and we are so glad to have found Socket Mobile. We believe that the CHS scanner is a great product, ergonomic and durable, and what's more the company's support for Development is outstanding.

The SDK is obviously made with the developer in mind, and its simplicity is amazing - we literally had the SDK implemented within our APP in under 30 minutes, which is quite honestly a first for myself, as normally implementing 3rd party SDKs can take some time. We really could not believe our eyes when we ran iPos after 30 minutes of tinkering and where able to scan barcodes immediately." - Paul Walton, CTO, Intelligent POS
