SnapShell R2 License Scanner

Published by: ScrapWare    On: August 26th, 2013    In: Anti-Theft Compliance

These License Scanners recently became available.

We had one of the first evaluation devices.

They will replace the original SnapShell license scanner.

They are very fast.

Depending upon the operating system and memory of the PC they are installed upon, license scanning and decoding is 25-30% faster than the original SnapShell.

This translates into less user waiting time once a license is scanned, and quicker service rendered to a retail vendor selling their scrap.

We have tested the device extensively with our ScrapWare software. It works great.

We now have several customers now using them with ScrapWare as part of their anti-theft compliance.

The form factor of the device has also changed.

It is much more compact and less likely to get knocked over than the original SnapShell.

An image of the of the new license scanner is below:

Theft of a Bridge

Published by: ScrapWare    On: March 25th, 2013    In: Anti-Theft Compliance

We hear a lot of theft and anti-theft stories on a daily basis from our customers.

Our ScrapWare software enables our customers to comply with local and state anti-theft laws.

We also receive the ISRI Theft Alerts via email.

Some of these are pretty mundane.  Theft of copper downspouts, theft of spools of wire, etc.

Every once in a while, we come across a metal theft story that is truly incredible.

The image below is from a bridge that used to be in Turkey.

It was 82-foot long, and weighed about 22 tons.  It spanned a creek.

It was removed from its pilings, dismantled and disappeared.  Overnight.

It was there at sundown and gone at dawn.
