Data capture is a journey that presents many learning facets. Whether you’re new to barcode scanning/reading, or an experienced user, there will always be more opportunities to learn about the solutions and how to take advantage of the benefits they offer.

Our newly launched Knowledge Center provides tools, resources, and general knowledge you need to make educated decisions through every step of your data capture journey. Whether you are a product user looking to find how your business can benefit from data capture, or a product manager or developer needing to find the best solutions for your app, the Knowledge Center provides you with tools and information so you can make the best data capture decisions for your needs.

In the Knowledge Center, you can find product comparisons, data & tech guides, company news & updates, and general info and help.

Product Comparisons

Any app that supports Socket Mobile's CaptureSDK is compatible with all our data readers. In the Product Comparison section of the Knowledge Center, we help you find the barcode scanners or NFC readers/writers most suitable for your business needs.

We understand choosing the right scanner can be complicated and sometimes confusing. But, since our CaptureSDK supports all our data readers, we've taken much of the risk out of the selection process. The product selection tool and comparison guides will help you break down each of our readers by the features and benefits that are important to you and help you choose the scanner/reader that meets your requirements and more.

Data and Tech Guides

Educating yourself on the variety of data types and scanning technologies available allows you to make informed purchasing decisions while ensuring your solution will read the correct types of data. The guides and tools presented within this section of the Knowledge Center will give you a clearer understanding of the numerous aspects of reading barcode and NFC data.

We provide a breakdown of barcode and NFC types that are commonly found within various industries, as well as guides to understand the types of data these barcodes hold. We also provide several technology guides that present side-by-side comparison views of the readers and technologies used in data capture, which will help you weigh the pros and cons of each and determine the right choice for your needs.
