"In 2022, we made significant progress in building the foundation we need to ensure long-term growth in the data capture market. We added the C820, a camera-based scanning software to our product portfolio. The C820 enables our App partners to provide their end users with free scanning support from day one and provides a mechanism to support their end users with high-level data capture requirements to seamlessly upgrade to the appropriate data capture solutions," said Kevin Mills, President, and Chief Executive Officer.

"We also launched the S550, NFC Mobile Wallet Reader and the S370, a universal NFC & QR Code Mobile Wallet Reader to enable our app partners to support eWallet-centric opportunities like mobile driver licenses and digital healthcare cards. The S550 was chosen as a finalist for the NFC Innovation Award."

"We significantly improved CaptureSDK, our unified software development toolset that supports our entire data capture portfolio. We now support Flutter, an open-source framework created by Google, Swift Package Manager, iOS' native package managing solution for developers, and .NET MAUI, a replacement for Xamarin to create multi-platform apps using a single project," continued Mills.

"In Q4 2022, we delivered an increase of 39% in revenue and improved the gross margin by 490 basis points compared to Q3 in a very challenging and uncertain macroeconomic environment. We reduced our inventory by 9% from our Q3 levels while maintaining our on-time delivery commitment to our partners. In October, Socket Mobile celebrated its 30th anniversary. We'd like to thank everyone who has contributed to our journey over the 30 years, and we will continue to innovate and improve as we remain focused on delivering world-class data capture solutions to our partners." concluded Mills.
