Otta's take

Sam Franklin headshot

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

Scandit leverages the cameras found in smartphones, tablets, wearables, and other devices such as drones to enable direct interaction with products. Scandit technology enables the cameras on these devices to scan barcodes and other product data.

Supported by a successful $150 million raise, the company has continued to innovate in the area with its focus on the Microsoft Hololens and other wearable displays as ways to help streamline warehouses.

Augmented reality is forecast to become a huge industry in itself, and as one of the early movers in the space, Scandit is well placed to further capitalise on the trend.
