Absolutely Perfect!

I wish I had heard about this app years ago, and when I first came across it I thought it was too good to be true! There are absolutely no annoying advertisements between scans or any of that nonsense—this app is made to get stuff done. Within the first 10 minutes of using this app I had scanned about 20 items for their UPC codes, quantified each item based on the inventory I had on hand, given each of these items a name to quickly identify them when I go to list them on eBay, and exported a spreadsheet of this information to my OneDrive. I highly recommend this app, and feel obliged to commend the developers for refraining from including a hidden paywall for premium features or intrusive advertising that’s seen in so many apps today

Game changer

A superior product with the most dedicated and responsive team that I have ever encountered in software development. The more you use Orcascan the more you understand how easily it can be customized to fit your company’s needs or yours.

I can find no software like it on the desktop or in a mobile app. I work on a university campus and my job has revolved around inventory management for the entire campus for many many years. Yet still Orcascan frequently provides new features that make me kick myself and say why didn’t I think of that?

Give me a cell phone, two workstations, a barcode reader, a quality PDF reader, and Orcascan and I’m near invincible on any campus.

I love orca scan!

Absolutely amazing. It’s a great tool for keeping tabs on food. Especially when you’re stocking food in the basement. I mean who really wants to walk down there every time you need to go shopping. This app tells you what you have and how much you have! It picks up even more than food. Hygiene products, toiletries, DOG FOOD, cleaning supplies! I love this app!

Ps. If you over stock food this app allows you to actually print out your data log. So at the end of every month you can update your prep pantry.
