Differentiation through Constant Innovation

Datascan owes its reputation for client satisfaction to the dedication and experience of our team and their relationship with our clients. In fact, our history of innovation is directly driven by our close working relationship with clients and has resulted in a number of “firsts”:

1970

1991

Stock takes goes paperless with Datascan’s introduction of the first LTD and PC stock take solution. And we’ve been barcode obsessed ever since.

1996

Stock take goes PC-less. Datascan eliminates the need for expensive onsite computer hardware and reduces equipment complexity.

1998

Stock take goes on-line as Datascan introduces the first web-based reporting solution for monitoring take status and variance analysis.

Datascan goes real-time with the introduction of the first real-time status and search features providing retailers with increased visibility.

2001

The first company to offer Scan-While-You-Sell functionality enabling stores to do a stock take during business hours.

2004

The first self-scan company able to deploy 25,000 scanners for simultaneous use. Today, our fleet of 80,000 scanners can be used simultaneously. Yea, that’s a lot of data!

2005

The first Self-Scan company to offer solutions to retailers outside the US with expansion into Europe. Within 1 year we’d earned the trust of some powerhouse retailers and continue the partnership.

2007

The first Self-Scan company to develop in-house audio/video capability to create personalised training DVD’s.
