Consumers reach for their phones, not their wallets.

Scan at POS

Beam-to-redeem at any laser scanner-equipped POS.

Digital Barcodes

A pivotal component to most any consumer shopping transaction, the barcode can be read in nearly every checkout system around the world. But there’s a major problem, barcodes don’t work on smartphones. Yet recent studies report that 84 percent of smartphone owners use their devices while shopping inside brick-and-mortar stores.

While there are newer image based scanners that will read barcodes direct from device, an estimated 165 million red laser scanners are thwarted by phone's reflective screens, backlit displays, and polarizing filters. Replacing these scanners will take considerable time and effort, and at a significant cost to large retailers and mom & pop stores.

'Checkout' Mobeam

Mobeam's patented technology sends pulses of light to the sensor in POS scanners and mimics the black-and-white sequencing of a standard bar code. So, instead of reading the reflection from a printed barcode, laser scanners receive identical information from pulses of light.

We're changing the way customers shop with their mobile devices, enabling digital coupons, loyalty, membership and reward card communication directly to any POS system.
