Barcode Xpress v8 equips software developers with a fast, accurate and easy-to-use barcode SDK that simplifies adding barcode reading and writing into applications. It is designed for a wide range of industries, including medical, financial, technology, retail and transportation.

“We continue to invest a significant amount of science and development in our Barcode Xpress engine to ensure our customers have the best barcode capabilities,” said Tom Setzer, Director of Recognition Technologies at Accusoft. “These improvements ensure that customers can read correctly even in the most extreme cases of damage to barcodes. This reduces the need for human interaction within many of our customers’ software systems.”
