To date, Scandit has raised almost $300 million to fuel its global expansion, enabling smart devices to capture data on the edge from barcodes, text, IDs and objects through computer vision in order to automate processes and provide insights that enhance customer engagement and increase worker productivity. Since its Series C funding round in May 2020, the company has more than doubled its annual recurring revenue and now has over 1700 global customers including American Eagle Outfitters, Carrefour, FedEx, Levi Strauss & Co., Yamato Transport and Sephora.
Scandit has strengthened its leadership position in its core verticals – retail, transportation and logistics, healthcare and manufacturing – and today is trusted by three of the top five global courier companies and eight of the top ten US grocers. During the pandemic, Scandit has also been providing data capture services to national health organizations such as the NHS in the UK to support Covid-19 programs and initiatives.
Scandit plans to use the additional funding to further expand its global footprint and team with a particular focus on APAC, including Japan, Singapore and South Korea. Since the Series C funding, Scandit’s globally distributed team has increased by 85% with plans to grow by another 50% by the end of 2022. The investment will also be used to continue to drive expansion and innovation in core verticals.
Additionally, the funding will accelerate Scandit’s R&D to advance enterprises’ core business processes with an increased emphasis on AI/ML capabilities and autonomous data capture methods. Scandit Smart Data Capture platform will further augment the intelligence and decision-making of users leading to faster, more accurate and automated outcomes whether on a smartphone, wearables or via robots.
