App Turns BlackBerry 6 OS Devices Into Ticket Scanners


May 6, 2011 - BOSTON, MA

Skycore LLC launched its BlackBerry 6 OS compliant codeREADr app at this week's BlackBerry World conference while scanning and validating tickets for AT&T's VIP Bash featuring the Goo Goo Dolls.

Almost all attendees presented a 2D barcode ticket displayed on their phone instead of printing their tickets which, according to the company, created a unique demonstration of mobile technology -- namely phones scanning phones.

The VIP Bash tickets were sent to attendees via email and MMS using Skycore's multimedia barcode generation service. Each mobile-ready ticket included a unique ticket ID embedded within a 2D barcode (a QR Code) along with the AT&T logo, the Goo Goo Dolls logo and associated event text.

"We've seen a dramatic improvement in the scanning function of our BlackBerry app using 6 OS. It now mirrors the performance of our Apple and Android apps," said Rich Eicher, CEO and founder of Skycore LLC. "The BlackBerry Torch with 6 OS is definitely a contender in the smartphone scanner race for enterprise use," said Eicher.

The codeREADr 6 OS app was downloaded to Torch handsets. The devices auto-scanned the QR Code, decoded the embedded data, transmitted it to codeREADr servers and received back validation results in two seconds.

"We envision apps with secure, real-time web services for reading, processing and validating 2D Barcodes and NFC tokens, each representing transactions for anything from coupons, vouchers and loyalty rewards to tickets, gift cards and payments. Skycore and our partners are investing in that vision," added Eicher.
