Can I see who was responsible for a particular item?
By creating different users, scans can be searched by users or show a history of scans for an item that correlates to usernames.
Can we scan things out as well as in? Can we decrease the quantity of an item as we take it out?
A special feature we offer is the Auto Increment/Decrement middleware. Any item that you scan can increase or decrease the current inventory count for that asset by the quantity scanned each time.
Is pricing based on how many assets we have?
Every paid plan has unlimited scans available. Also, our pricing model is per device. For example, we count a device as billable if your authorized app-user signs into the device during your monthly billing period. The monthly count is not based on concurrently used devices. However, it is the total number of unique devices that are signed in during your monthly billing period. Also, each month, this count resets, and each device sign-in counts towards your plan limit.
What if there isn’t a good internet connection on location?
Do we need to print labels for our assets or will the codes attached to them already work?
If your assets have barcodes like UPC attached to them already, we can read this code and allow you to add information about the item to your database. If the assets are bare, you need to attach the barcode to them in some way.
The vast majority of our customers use a third-party vendor- one we recommend is ID&C, but any company should work -for the labels themselves. While you can generate barcode values and images on CodeREADr, it is generally time-consuming. Also, it is not ideal for label printing. Once you’ve purchased labels, you can either upload a database of the values you’ve received or scan each code as you track.
Can we add things like photos or item info to the label so that this information appears when scanned?
If you are using a record scans service, create your barcode values on CodeREADr to edit what you show after each scan. If you choose validate scans, you can use any barcodes. Also, you can edit the response text when uploading the database.
You can use Webify formatting to include photos hosted remotely. However, when the scans are downloaded, these images will only be given as links to the images themselves. The response text can include virtually any information you’d like to associate and display with the label being scanned.
Can we generate a report that shows asset data per day?
How can we update the quantity or other information about an item?
Advanced Database Builder using Postback allows you to make changes to our default questions with our standard DBB. Using this service, you can attach question responses to your barcode value so that this data is linked. Also, you can edit these responses via this service type.
Can I make the app look any different? For example, can I change what it says when an item is invalid or include my company’s logo?
CodeREADr is compatible with most devices. This includes iOS, Android, and mobile computers. Check the device requirements for CodeREADr here. We do not sell any hardware. Thus, it is up to you to decide on which devices you will use CodeREADr.
