Here is what Barcoding Inc. says about its business to helps scan and process e-tickets on mobile Devices: Barcoding Inc., a leader in enterprise-wide mobility systems, today announced that it has launched a customized mobile ticket scanning application for Baltimore-based Mission Media, LLC’s sister company,, an online ticketing service for buying and selling tickets for concerts, performances, fairs and other local events. Created with Barcoding’s CaptureSoft™ eXpress software platform, the application allows venues to use handheld devices to scan and process a barcode from both printed tickets and tickets displayed on a mobile device, such as a smartphone...Now, ticket holders no longer need to print a ticket if they have a mobile device with Internet access. A concertgoer could buy a ticket en route to a performance, and present the e-ticket displayed on their phone for admission. In addition, with Barcoding’s customized application, handheld scanners are able to recognize the ticket’s electronic barcode from a screen while simultaneously tracking admitted tickets in real-time by communicating with other handhelds in the venue’s system...Barcoding’s application will debut in June for the first time at the Recher Theatre in Towson, Md.
