Scan-To-Connect Utility for Android

The Scan-To-Connect (STC) Utility enables a Zebra Bluetooth scanner to pair to a phone or tablet in one simple step, without having to modify your app.

Unlike standard HID keyboard, the STC Utility supports enhanced HID keyboard, which assures your data is received by your phone or tablet. If corrupted, it will be retransmitted. If lost, you get an error beep to rescan item.

The STC Utility also has a virtual keyboard to manually enter data for items that are not bar coded, or if the bar code is unreadable (ie. Damaged).
