Our Story

Orca Scan is a barcode scanner app for iOS and Android that allows anyone to create a barcode system without code. It started life in 2016 as a very simple prototype to help a teenager with his summer job. It was released onto the app stores in 2017, where it received thousands of downloads and hundreds of feature requests. It turned out organisations worldwide shared the same problem: although barcodes are everywhere, barcode scanners are not, leaving many with the tedious, error-prone task of writing down barcode numbers or typing them into spreadsheets. Since that day, the Orca team have worked closely with over 200k users to evolve Orca Scan in a way that makes barcode technology accessible to everyone, regardless of technical skill or budget.
