Moving your scanning workflows to web apps offers unique advantages over native apps.
No need to worry about App Stores and the headaches they bring. Host your web app anywhere you like, without platform risk.
Distribute your app by sharing a link or a QR code. Web apps are always up-to-date.
Write your app once for the web instead of relying on expensive iOS/Android development. Avoid duplicating efforts and invest in a single code base instead.
Don't force users to install apps they seldom need. App fatigue is real and it is unlikely you need a native app, especially for business apps.
Progressive Web Apps (PWA) allow installing a web app on the user's home screen, increasing engagement and retention while offering advanced capabilities like offline operation and push notifications.
