Jim Cramer host of CNBC’s Mad Money recently said, “Mobeam is changing the way we spend money. That’s what’s key. It brings us one step closer to a future where you literally use your phone for everything.”

Last March, Mobeam launched on the Samsung Galaxy S4, making it the world’s first smartphone able to beam barcodes at millions of checkout registers all over the world. In September 2013, it was announced that Mobeam technology would also be embedded on the new Galaxy Note 3. Samsung has said retailers prefer traditional barcodes, because they do not have to install any new infrastructure. It also saves consumers time and money by simplifying their overall shopping experience.

So if you haven’t already, download Beepn’Go and start saving!

03/11/2014Scanner Manufacturer Finds New Use for Mobeam Technology!

We recently got an email from Len Ott, CTO for Socket Mobile, after he downloaded our Beep’nGo app to his Samsung Galaxy S4. Len loved how Beep’nGo could keep all of his loyalty, gift and membership cards right on his phone. He was also very  impressed by how simple the app is to use, and that it actually worked at the checkout line!

Socket Mobile is a leading mobile device manufacturer, specializing in handheld barcode scanners. Socket Mobile also created the EZPair app, which allows users to connect their Bluetooth Barcode scanners to an android device with out having to dig into their phone’s settings.

After seeing how easy it was to use Beep’nGo, Len wondered if Socket Mobile could add Mobeam’s technology into their EzPair app. Our technology would allow Socket Mobile to bridge the gap between laser scanning technology (which has been around for over 40 years), and the massive increase in mobile device use.

Len reached out to the Mobeam team and we provided him with our Barcode Beaming software development kit (SDK). And within a couple of days, Socket Mobile had incorporated Mobeam’s technology into their own app!

This is just one example of how Mobeam’s capabilities are revolutionizing the mobile payments industry. Just last month, Clutch partnered with us to enable their mobile wallet with beaming technology.

We are very excited about partnering with even more companies throughout the year, and enhance their products with Mobeam. If you’re interested in learning more, you can contact Dave Beebe, Mobeam’s vice president of product marketing, to discuss strategic partnerships. Last year, Mobeam took second place in CTIA’s 2013 E-Tech awards for Payments, Banking, Mobile Commerce, Shopping and Rewards.

With more and more companies enabling their products and services with Mobeam technology, the happier their customers are going to be!
