Socket introduces OrganizeIT Suite with barcode Scanning for Pocket PC and palmOne
Socket Communications, Inc. has announced the availability of the Socket OrganizeIT Suite, a software application bundled with a Socket SDIO In-Hand Scan Card that organizes music and video collections based on UPC barcodes. The Socket OrganizeIT Suite is compatible with PC, Pocket PC and PalmOne devices, allowing information to be easily synchronized and updated between mobile devices and PCs for easy management. The suite also includes a barcode label printing program for labeling customized media.

“Consumer media collections have become more and more complex with many individuals owning thousands of music and video titles on DVD, CD and video,” said Peter Phillips, vice president of marketing at Socket Communications. “The Socket OrganizeIT Suite makes the ownership of music and movies both manageable and fun. Users can now scan, manage, view and print entire music and video collections in minutes.”

The Socket OrganizeIT Suite searches the web to provide detailed information based on barcode data. With the Socket OrganizeIT Suite, users are now able to track all music and movies by scanning hundreds of titles and store them for future purchases, rentals, or to rate items under consideration. Information can be available from the web or manually entered to complete a collection. The Socket OrganizeIT Suite also enables users to track music and movie items without barcodes because the Socket OrganizeIT Suite provides a barcode label maker for CDs, DVDs, VHS and other media that are custom designed by the users.

The Socket OrganizeIT Suite enables users to manually enter personal ratings or other notes. Once titles have been scanned and entered into the Socket OrganizeIT Suite, users can easily sort the items or search for specific music or video titles based on any of the key information captured. For instance, when pricing information is included, users can perform an automatic valuation of their collections for insurance purposes. Additionally, the Socket OrganizeIT Suite allows consumers to scan items under consideration to create detailed wish lists for future purchases and rentals. Socket’s OrganizeIT Suite is compatible with popular media playing and storing software programs such as Microsoft’s Media Player and Real Networks’ RealPlayer.

The suite includes three versatile applications: music, video and bar code label printing. OrganizeIT is compatible with Windows 98/98SE, ME, NT, 2000 and XP as well as Windows Mobile and Palm Operating System for handheld devices. The Socket SDIO In-Hand Scan Card is very compact, weighing only 7.3 grams. Using low power supplied directly from the mobile device, the card decodes UPC bar codes as well as many other popular bar code symbologies.
