Procede Software Makes Strategic Platform Move with Release of Android-Compatible Version of Its Industry-Leading Excede Barcode Scanning Solution

The move to the Android-based platform is designed to advance the pace of innovation and development while providing dealerships with greater flexibility to choose the hardware device type that works best for their business.

February 20, 2024 — Procede Software, a leading heavy-duty commercial vehicle dealer management system (DMS) and solutions provider, today announced the release of Excede® Barcode Scanning v4.0, which is compatible with Android-based barcode scanning devices. The move is designed to speed innovation and provide customers with a broader choice in the type of hardware they use. Procede will continue to support its Windows®-compatible version of the solution for customers that prefer to continue using their existing Windows-based devices.

Larry Kettler, CEO said, “Extending Excede Barcode Scanning capabilities to Android-compatible devices is a long-term, strategic platform move that will enable us to accelerate the pace of innovation and develop new features and enhancements that will help our customers go farther, faster.” Kettler continued, “Parts inventory management is such a critical area of dealership operations, and advancing our barcode scanning offering reflects our commitment to listening to our customers and delivering in ways that have a tangible impact on their businesses.”

Android is a leading operating system in the barcode scanning space. As an open-source development platform, it enables developers to modify the code in ways that enhance application performance and deliver better user experiences. Eric Fortin, Senior Vice President of Product, explains, “By making this move, we are bringing one of the most powerful consumer mobile experiences to our dealership customers. Not only will we be able to bring new advancements to market faster, but our customers will also benefit from superior performance and ease of use.”

Excede Barcode Scanning increases the efficiency and accuracy of managing parts inventory by minimizing manual data entry, saving time, and reducing the opportunity for error. Users can receive new parts or manage existing parts wirelessly and in real-time. The solution also identifies patterns of incorrect characters in barcodes and returns parts numbers Excede can recognize, which significantly streamlines the scanning process and further minimizes the opportunity for errors.
