Inserting Scan Records Directly into External Databases

Automating the movement of data

A. Developers

With codeREADr, developers can insert scan records into their own or third-party databases. Those options include Postback URL and Direct Scan to URL (DSU), which post scans from the codeREADr app to the third party’ server. Also, they can fetch scan records using our API.

B. Anyone – no coding required

There are many web applications that enable third-party service providers to automate the movement of data from one web app to the other. Those apps typically connect via an API.

The codeREADr web application (i.e. the server where your validation databases and scan records reside) works with a number of those web applications.

Here’s a list of options. If you don’t see your service provider on this list, please contact codeREADr support to see if they are on our roadmap. Also, you can use a ‘connector’ service like Zapier that supports 100’s of apps.

  • QuickBase: Add, Validate, and Edit scan records. [Enterprise Platform-as-a-Service with real-time insertion.]
  • Google Sheets: Insert scan records automatically.
  • Excel: Insert scan records automatically.
  • Business Intelligence (BI) Platforms: Microsoft’s Power BI, Tableau, and other BI platforms enable CSV imports. For instance, some directly enable imports but others enable after they reside in Excel or Google Sheets. Thus, check with their instructions to see which best suits your needs.
  • Zapier: Over 1000 web apps have integrated with Zapier, many of which offer ACTIONS for receiving data (‘Triggers’) from services like codeREADr. [See example applications on our blog.] With this tool, you can auto-insert your scan records those databases. Thus, you can automate your data collection applications. Use codeREADr as Trigger and Action 3.0.
