To quickly implement a simple tracking solution, you can use your existing serial number barcodes or affix new barcode labels, each with a unique ID. Basically, the idea is to scan the unique barcode on the item and compare it to a database of valid IDs.
Importantly, if the scanned ID is in the database, the app user will see a green “Valid” screen. But if it is not in the database, the app use will see a red “Invalid” screen. Administrators can review the scan records in real-time. Also, when there is no connectivity, the system records the scans offline so admins can view online later.
Yes. The administrator can always see the filtered scan history for each item online. For the app-user to also see the history and to create a simple, clickable, and shareable table showing the history of all filtered items, the Table Builder service is ideal.
Since a barcode is visual media, people can easily copy it. Therefore, you can use holograms or similar technologies to make it more difficult to copy.
If you are concerned about shipping customers authentic items but customers returning counterfeit items, you can print a high resolution DataMatrix 2D barcode on the item’s label or hide it on the item. If small or camouflaged enough, it may be missed by the counterfeiter. Also, you can use a magnifier when scanning the barcode to confirm validity.
