Dear Learned Ones….


We are interested in a more efficient & accurate system to read the label on a bottle with a mobile device for chemical inventory.


Our current practice of using people to read the label on the container and type in the data is slow, prone to errors and a waste of human capital.


Are any of you aware of any tool that can be used to read a container label and identify/capture the information?


If you know of a company able and willing to develop such an interface please share that information with me as well.
