Instantly scan school and university IDs or any other types of loyalty cards with the UniScan mobile app! This app turns your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad into a student ID scanner by using its camera to scan ANY barcode. It is perfect for meetings, registration, school events, and sports events.

With a scanning time of 1-2 seconds, UniScan is a fast way to track attendance and collect event data. The app allows you to add additional information such as student or loyalty number, email, and comments with every scan; it provides real-time stats during your school event. After the event, you can quickly export your data to programs such as MS Excel to easily review and analyze your stats.

-Scan a university card and add relevant data such as a phone number, email, and optional comments.
-Collect statistics to show the number of cards scanned thus far.
-Email the scan history with the UniScan log file or download the file from your iPhone via iTunes. *

-Scans virtually any type of school ID or loyalty card, including magnetic strip and 1D/2D barcodes
-Provides real-time stats such as number of IDs scanned
-Exports data via email, Dropbox (premium feature), or iTunes File Sharing
-Scans 1D/2D barcodes with the device’s native camera**

**Note: For devices with a camera that is less than 5 megapixels, UniScan requires an external scanner, which must be purchased separately. We also recommend an external scanner for events with high scan volumes.

Automating Event Entry

I had trouble keeping track of students at school events such as football games, etc. UniScan allowed me to automate this process by swiping student IDs and capturing data. This is a must have for anyone in the education industry!
