“For years, Code has been solving the unique barcode reading challenges of many different applications and leading the way with best-in-class, high-quality products," said Code's CEO and President George Powell.

Code, a leading developer of image-based barcode readers, has launched CortexDecoder® enterprise barcode reading software. With incredibly fast read times, the ability to read more barcode symbologies, and the versatility to read damaged barcodes, CortexDecoder® is built to add unparalleled barcode reading performance to any device with an embedded camera.

The Power of CortexDecoder®
Years of experience have been poured into Code’s proprietary barcode reading platform, fine tuning its performance on a wide variety of barcodes, whether they’re printed poorly, torn, twisted, crumpled, curved, on paper, on cardboard, on metal, on cell phone screens, and whatever else might be thrown at it. Quite simply, CortexDecoder® delivers enterprise-grade decoding of 1D, 2D, postal, and direct part mark barcodes with unprecedented speed. And now, this powerful tool has been packaged for use with mobile devices, opening up new possibilities for enterprise use of smartphones and tablets.

Best-in-Class Performance and Support
“There are many software-based barcode reading options on the market today, but they lack the performance and reliability that is both expected and required to meet the demands of enterprises,” says Code’s CEO and President George Powell. “For years, Code has been solving the unique barcode reading challenges of many different applications and leading the way with best-in-class, high-quality products. CortexDecoder® continues that tradition, giving our customers a world-class software platform that supports their business needs.”

Compatible with any operating system, including iOS®, Android™, Windows®, and Linux®, CortexDecoder® can be easily integrated to any application on any device with any embedded camera. To speed integration, flexible software development kits with comprehensive documentation are available for all platforms. As with all Code products, integrators also get direct access to Code support staff to help get them up and running quickly.

CortexDecoder® can be evaluated on mobile platforms by downloading CortexScan® from the App Store®, Google Play™, and Windows Store. CortexStudio®, a Windows-based simulator, is also available for testing performance of CortexDecoder®. Visit to evaluate CortexDecoder® on all other platforms.
