A new software package from PaperIQ will make it easier to combine the benefits of BlackBerry® smartphones and digital pen and paper (DPP).

The Anoto digital pen integration kit provides everything required to integrate Anoto’s digital pen technology with a BlackBerry smartphone application or enterprise system.

As an ‘out-of-the-box’ solution, the integration kit will make it easier to create combined BlackBerry and DPP applications. The kit also enables any existing paper-based forms to be printed with the Anoto pattern so that they can be used with the digital pen.

The combination of Anoto’s digital pen with BlackBerry smartphones enables mobile workers to electronically capture and transmit data when away from their desks. The Anoto digital pen records what is being written onto a form printed with Anoto special dot pattern. This data is then transmitted back to the office via a BlackBerry device for further processing – without the need to type up notes.

The lower capital cost compared to traditional PC-based data-capture systems should realise a strong return on investment and increase staff efficiency – while not changing existing workflows.
