Turn Galaxy smartphones into barcode scanners, instantly.

It’s no secret that workers on the frontline play a critical role in any industry. Key employees in diverse roles, from manufacturing and retail to transport and logistics, form the backbone behind a successful business – and one that’s prepared for the future of work.

Warehouse management, transportation, and border control tracking all need scanners, but dedicated devices can cause problems for IT owners because of the high cost of ownership. Meanwhile, employees become burdened carrying both work smartphones and scanners. At Samsung, we always work hard to bridge the gap between new tech and the reality of work. We also prioritize the development of streamlined ways for you and your teams to enjoy truly dynamic and secure technology.

With this in mind, we created Knox Capture. This reliable tool turns Samsung devices into barcode scanners without compromising other mobile functions. With Knox Capture, you can transform rugged Samsung devices or other Secured by Knox devices into a scanner. [1] A new version of Knox Capture is now included in the Knox Suite, an all-in-one UEM bundle, giving you an even more powerful frontline mobile device management solution.


What is Knox Capture?

Knox Capture is a purpose-built barcode scanning solution, run on Android platforms on Samsung mobile devices.

Knox Capture’s intuitive design allows frontline users to use smartphones as scanners with ease. With features such as our push-to-scan button, pivoting between smartphone and scanner use is seamless.


The new version of Knox Capture is now available with Knox Suite.

Knox Suite is the all-in-one UEM solution to manage work devices. Adding the new version of Knox Capture to this bundle gives added functionality to a solution already optimized for field work, with a single license. Knox Suite is a comprehensive package for enterprise mobility management. Knox Suite includes effortless device setup and management capabilities and a barcode scanning solution to help streamline operations for IT managers and increase productivity for employees.
