Oxford, UK, June 04, 2013 - Axicon Auto ID Ltd, (Oxford, UK) a world leader in barcode verification, announce the launch of a check digit calculator app for mobile phones, available free of charge on apple and android operating systems. The new check digit calculator app allows users to confirm barcodes have the correct check digit encoded using a mobile phone without the need to access a PC. Users select the appropriate barcode symbology which will determine the length of the number that is encoded; EAN-8, EAN-13, ITF-14 or UPC-A. A history will be kept of all the barcode numbers entered and these can then be retrieved later for future reference.
The last, rightmost, digit of the GS1 Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) is calculated from the rest of the digits and it is vital in confirming the validity of the number that is to be encoded in the barcode. Once the data has been entered, the resulting code string with the calculated check digit will be displayed, the check digit will be highlighted in a different colour at the end of the number sequence.
Passing comment, James Bernard Chairman of Axicon Auto ID Ltd said, “We are delighted to announce the launch of our new mobile app, we continually strive to improve the speed and usability of our products and the check digit app certainly provides these benefits to our customers,” he continued, “the new app allows our users greater operational freedom to check barcodes on the go via the ease and convenience of a mobile phone.”
