The latest enterprise innovation brings a business-ready data capture solution to Galaxy smartphones and tablets, enabling advanced scanning at your fingertips with easy use and deployment


On a given day, a frontline employee might scan dozens, if not hundreds, of barcodes to enable seamless transaction processing. Streamlined enterprise-grade scanning deployments are an integral part of the business process in verticals such as retail, hospitality, logistics & warehousing, and many others.


Keeping customers and their dedicated frontline employees at the centre of our products, Samsung Canada is pleased to announce the launch of Knox Capture to help enterprise IT admins rapidly deploy and configure barcode capture for business apps.


Powered by the Samsung Knox ecosystem, Knox Capture is a highly adaptable solution capable of handling tailored scanning logic for business apps. Its friendly UI and powerful scanning engine helps orchestrate the input, formatting, and output of scanned barcode data without writing a single line of code, so users can quickly capture and input data at the press of a button.


Knox Capture is a data capture solution for business, leveraging the Knox platform to enable quick and easy configuration, deployment, and management of all scanning use cases on the frontline.


Productivity, security and configuration

Knox Capture provides multiple benefits to frontline employees and IT administrators, including:


  • Zero coding and integration needed: Customers do not need a significant development or integration investment for robust data capture and delivery to business-critical applications, reducing total cost of ownership (TCO).
  • Data capture with device keyboard – secured by Knox: End users can use the native Samsung OEM keyboard for scanned corporate data to ensure enhanced security. The keyboard also comes with a dedicated “Scan” button for enhanced usability.
  • Seamless deployment and usability: Knox Capture emphasizes usability in all aspects for users and IT admins with dedicated features and intuitive visual cues to support a short learning curve – employees can scan barcodes just like they would take pictures with their smartphones.
  • All major barcode symbologies supported: Knox Capture supports all major barcode types to ensure optimal coverage for all data the users intend to scan.

Key Features

  • Tailored scanning for business apps: Configure unique scanning configurations for multiple business apps by creating and applying Knox Capture profiles, eliminating the need for integration between business apps and the SDK.
  • Capture data: Use the device camera to capture all major industry standard 1D and 2D barcode symbologies such as UPC, Code 39, EAN, and QR, just like you would capture photos with your smartphone.
  • Configure scanning logic: Customize scanning logic with settings such as barcode type, camera zoom and scanning mode through the Knox Capture app on Google Play.
  • Customize scanned data: Format scanned data for output by adding prefixes, suffixes, and tab or return keystrokes.
  • Output scanned data: Send scanned data to input fields such as text boxes and drop-down menus in an app’s UI.

  • Share and deploy Knox Capture configurations: Share a Knox Capture configuration with other devices via email, NFC, or QR code, or mass deploy a remote configuration through your EMM/MDM console.
