Make Your Scanner

NDC Translator Software

As already slim profit margins continue to diminish, prescription billing accuracy has never been so important. NDC Translator® enables accurate identifcation of a medication’s 11-digit NDC number without the risk of data entry errors. The software is a simple, inexpensive solution that is compatible with any Windows-based pharmacy system. This patented technology is used by retail pharmacies across the country. We estimate that billions of medications are scanned using our technology each year.

How It Works

NDC Translator software provides the user with the actual 11 digit NDC number of the medication that is being scanned. NDC Translator interprets, parses, and converts the data in the barcode to the 11 digit NDC number. It seamlessly works with any application; ultimately eliminating data entry errors that often occur when manually entering NDC numbers.

Deciphering medication barcodes is difficult and NDC Translator makes the seamless for users.
