Up to forty times faster than the competition, Honeywell's Swift Decoder bar-code decoding software engine is the first choice for AIDC providers because of its accuracy, robust algorithms and aggressive performance. Optimized to maximize accuracy and minimize processing time, the robust algorithms in Swift Decoder find, auto-discriminate and decode barcodes regardless of condition or image quality, including: torn, wrinkled, and plastic-covered codes. In direct comparisons, Swift Decoder successfully recognized and decoded up to 71% more barcodes than its competition. Honeywell Swift Decoder provides handheld scanners with snappy performance and fixed scanners with industry-leading decode times. The software also increases end-user read rates of damaged and poorly printed real-world barcodes found in AIDC applications. When it comes to accuracy Swift Decoder reduces costly errors by eliminating barcode misreads associated with low-cost decoders. Swift Decoder is available in most standard platforms and written in 'C' for quick porting to virtually any platform or processor.
