A Structured Carrier Message is an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standardized data record specific to the transportation shipping industry. In 1992, United Parcel Service invented the MaxiCode barcode, designing it to carry an SCM record. The MaxiCode barcode was especially engineered for use in sortation facilities where fixed cameras are used with high-speed conveyors. A Structured Carrier Message includes important shipping and delivery information like destination postal code, class of service, tracking number, shipper number, and package weight. In an automated sortation facility, this information is critical in routing a package to the correct truck or door.
The Barcode Scanner Parser Plugin for SCM makes it easier than ever to extract data from a MaxiCode barcode containing a Structured Carrier Message. Retrieving package details and shipping information are greatly simplified: the plugin effectively reduces the amount of work a developer would otherwise be forced to do parsing through the raw bytes of MaxiCode decoded results.
The Parser Plugin for SCM makes the process of sorting through and parsing important details relative to package delivery faster, more efficient, and more affordable.
Developing practical applications is challenging. That’s why we've developed a straight-forward barcode scanner software development kit (SDK) that boasts the most powerful scanning experience available for integration. It offers developers a simple, flexible, dynamic decoding experience, while still allowing for maximum control and flexibility over the user experience (UX). The Cognex Mobile Barcode Scanner SDK was built BY developers FOR developers... with the goal of making all your applications practical.
As a tool developed with the retail, manufacturing, government, healthcare, commercial services, and transportation industries in mind, our scanning solutions are built around efficiency for the end-user, as well as simplicity for the application developer. We understand that the enterprise is continually looking for opportunities to increase efficiency. Therefore, we have developed the ultimate single-handed scanning solution aimed at maximizing every promise of a return on investment.
