Scanntech is a Uruguayan company with the objective of providing technological solutions to independent stores and connecting them with consumer products companies and financial institutions.

Today it is present in 5 countries, providing a successful solution to more than 7,000 satisfied customers.


In 1992, Scanntech is founded, as a Uruguayan company dedicated to the development and commercialization of point-of-sale solutions for independent stores, using open-source software on personal computers. The solution is the first of its kind in Uruguay and designed specifically for the needs of independent retailers. The company’s PoS system expands to cover all of Uruguay and a greater than 50% share of independent stores.

In 2008, the platform is expanded to connect independent stores with consumer products companies and financial and telecommunications services companies in a live network. It provides consumer products companies with the first-ever live market intelligence from the traditional trade, while enabling them to implement promotions in all Scanntech stores, and measure impact in real-time.

At the end of 2009, development is begun on the “iPos”, a new HW platform designed specifically for independent retailers’ needs. The first units are installed in 2011.

In 2010, Scanntech launches operations in Argentina and, one year later, in Chile.

In December of 2011, Scanntech receives an investment from Sequoia Capital, one of the premier venture capital funds in Silicon Valley. It is the first-ever investment by the fund in Latin America, with the objective of continuing geographic expansion and product development.

In 2012, the company launches in Paraguay together with industry partners.

In 2013, the company launches in Brazil.

In 2014, the company launches in Peru.
