    FAQs About Work in Process Tracking

    Can I use my pre-existing database of inventory?

    Absolutely. You can import your database manually or automatically. Alternatively, you can integrate codeREADr with your server to send and receive information directly.

    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 it 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 and not meant for actions such as label printing. Once you’ve purchased labels, you can either upload a database of the values you’ve received or scan each code in as you track.

    Can we use NFC tags instead of printed labels?

    Absolutely. If your device is NFC enabled, you can use this technology rather than scanning via the camera on the device.

    How can we update the quantity or other information about an item?

    Our recommendation for process tracking is to use Table Builder. With this service type, your users will have the ability to either view and/or edit question responses along with the steps in a process. With Table Builder, you also can see a live, updating portal of all the items scanned in your table views.

    Can we add things like photos or question answers along with the item in the database?

    If you are using a record scans service, you will need to create your barcode values on codeREADr to edit what is shown when they are scanned. If you choose to use validate scans, any barcodes can be used, and the response text can be edited when uploading the database.

    How can I prevent duplicate records?

    Duplicate checking – a feature that can be implemented on validate scans services- alerts the user that a barcode has already been scanned.

    Can we generate a report that shows asset data per day?

    On the Scans page, you can filter and view a report of codes scanned and even automatically export those records to Excel, Google Sheets, etc. When exported you can sort scans by ‘timestamp scanned’ or by user who scanned it.

    Can I see who was responsible for a particular item?

    By creating different users, scans can be searched by user or show a history of scans for an item that correlates to usernames.

    Can I make the app look any differently, e.g. change what it says when an item is invalid or include my company’s logo?

    We offer the ability to customize the display of the response screen as well as change the response text as desired. Additionally, there are both free and paid options for white labeling the app to include your logo.

    Do we need special hardware to scan assets?

    CodeREADr is compatible with most devices. This includes iOS, Android, and mobile computers. We do not sell any hardware so it is up to you to decide on which devices you will use codeREADr.

    What if there isn’t a good internet connection on location?

    codeREADr works offline as well as online. While certain features, such as conditional validation and cross-device duplicate checking, require internet connection, the basic functionality of verifying a ticket against a database is available for download and use without internet.
