Microblink has been nominated for BlinkReceipt, our latest product that is going to take the retail industry by storm! It is a retail receipt scanner which extracts all data about consumer purchases in real time. Its main advantages: it runs text recognition (OCR) locally on a mobile device (no server-side processing), has high accuracy, and scales infinitely. It's the most cost-effective way to collect consumer purchase data at SKU level. As with our other SDKs, another major advantage of BlinkReceipt is that is easy to integrate into existing apps and requires no investment in hardware since it supports all major mobile platforms.

Take a look at how it works on real-life examples:

Out of many possible use cases, BlinkReceipt is used for purchase validation, loyalty and reward programs, consumer panels & market research, and personal finance or lifestyle management. It currently supports receipts from all major US retailers. We are especially happy to have been recognized by the Judging Panel of GLOMOs 2018, since BlinkReceipt is currently spreading to new markets across the world, such as Europe and Southeast Asia.

"The GLOMOs offer organizations and individuals from across the world an opportunity to showcase how mobile technology continues to inspire new levels of ingenuity, innovation, and achievement," said Michael O'Hara, Chief Marketing Officer, GSMA. "As always, the calibre of entries is extremely high, so to be shortlisted for the GLOMOs today is quite an achievement in itself. We wish the very best of luck to all nominees and look forward to unveiling the winners at Mobile World Congress next month."

The GLOMO Awards ceremony will take place at Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona. If you’re interested to see the full list of nominees, take a look. We’re also exhibiting at the event - if you’re curious to see BlinkReceipt and our other products live in action, stop by our booth in the App Planet.
