How to Save Time & Reduce Costs With IMEI Scanning


Anyline’s mobile scanning technology empowers you to scan lengthy international mobile equipment identity (IMEI) numbers with any mobile device. IMEI numbers are located on the majority of mobile devices and are often printed on their packaging as well. The numbers are used to identify devices and let network providers know if a phone has permission to connect to their network.

Most users will encounter IMEI numbers when they are needed during the registration process. Scanning IMEI numbers can even help to improve customer experience in stores. Instead of manually typing them, an IMEI scanner can be used to capture the number instantly, meaning a significantly shorter waiting time.

As IMEI numbers are unique to each specific device, they’re also a useful resource when it comes to tracking during supply chain processes. Thanks to years of development and testing, Anyline’s IMEI scanner is one of the most accurate on the market, improving the success rate of supply chain execution.

They can also be used to track warehouse inventories once the devices reach stores. Additionally, IMEI numbers are standardized around the world, making them perfect for mobile data processing.

Mobile IMEI Scanning is Accurate & Fast

Our mobile IMEI scanner is 99% accurate, with daily improvement thanks to machine learning. This high level of accuracy makes Anyline’s mobile scanning technology the perfect tool for managing mobile devices in various logistical processes.

Whether you’re verifying a delivery or performing an inventory check, our simple IMEI scan can tell you all you need to know in a fraction of the time. Mobile IMEI scanning outperforms traditional manual data entry in both accuracy and speed. Human error, distraction, and workforce stress can all lead to common typing mistakes, adding further time to the data collection process.

A recent study on data collection suggests that poor data quality costs companies up to 6% of their revenue. Another report found that bad data was costing the US economy €3 trillion per year alone! Further, a 2017 study suggested that 84% of CEOs are doubtful of the data quality they receive and base decisions on.

With this in mind, it is easy to see why accurate data collection should be a priority for any business, no matter the industry. Anyline’s mobile scanning offers instant results. In laboratory conditions, mobile IMEI scanning is up to 20 times faster than traditional data collection. This speed advantage saves you time and allows you to focus on more important priorities, such as processing customer requests and during the supply chain process.

Mobile IMEI Scanning is Easy to Perform

Writing down or typing a 15-digit IMEI number can be quite tedious. Once you’ve manually collected it, you need to proofread your version to make sure it’s accurate. Repeating this process over and over again can get boring and leads to mistakes, while also taking time away from other tasks.

Deploying a mobile IMEI scanner is a simple alternative that dramatically improves any process. You simply point the camera of your smartphone at your target IMEI and Anyline will automatically perform a scan of the code, quickly and accurately.

Mobile IMEI Scanning Makes Your Workforce More Agile

One of the biggest advantages of mobile IMEI scanning with Anyline is that you can perform scans without the need for an internet connection. Anyline data processes directly on the mobile device itself, meaning that no data is handled by third-party servers, including those of Anyline.

Once your scanned data is processed, you control where it is used whether on a mobile application with your current data management or even on a webpage for easy data entry. You can perform scans in the far corners of storerooms, in the back of trucks, or any other location that isn’t serviced with an internet connection. With offline scanning capability, you perform your scan where and when you need to.

The ability to scan in all locations makes your workforce more agile while also increasing the engagement potential from customers. This leads to improved customer experience as well as a more accurate inventory management process. The success rate of your logistic processes will also see improvements, as it will be much easier to track devices during the many supply chain processes.

By choosing Anyline, you also benefit from our unbeatable versatility when it comes to scanning solutions. So if you need to pair IMEI scanning with barcode or ID scanning, there is no need to look to a different provider.

Mobile IMEI Scanning Removes the Need for Dedicated Devices

Even today, many on-site data capturing processes are done by using dedicated devices for scanning. But mobile devices have many advantages over these special devices.

Firstly, mobile devices can be used to scan items and data without limitations, anywhere that is needed, and at any time. The added agility provides you and your workforce with the potential to avoid potential bottlenecks in your business processes.

In addition, dedicated devices often require special training in order to be operated efficiently and professionally. Mobile scanning offers a simple and intuitive procedure that requires minimal training to perform accurately.

Lastly, incorporating new scanning technology into dedicated devices can be a difficult and convoluted process. With mobile scanning, all you need is to choose your new scanner, contact Anyline to add it to your system, and then update your devices! This makes mobile scanning far more versatile.

In short, adopting mobile scanning is the perfect opportunity to reduce training and equipment costs while embracing cutting edge technology!
