Clients use CodeREADr to verify property inspectors or maintenance crews have completed their rounds. They will attach barcode labels or QR codes near the doors of buildings, rooms, or equipment that need to be checked. There may be hundreds of these checkpoints in a building or campus. The mobile app user (i. .e the inspector or crew member) will scan the label at each assigned checkpoint. Also, they can optionally be prompted to take a photo or answer questions.
You can use a label printing company like Maverick Label (firstname.lastname@example.org) for printing your labels. Alternatively, for small volumes, you can generate QR codes with CodeREADr.
Yes. Using our Questions feature, you can require app users to add notes, answer questions, or even take a photo of the checkpoint.
Yes. On the Scans page, you can filter and view records of all checkpoint activity. Also, you can automatically export those records to Excel, Google Sheets, etc. Then, you can sort checkpoint scans by ‘timestamp scanned’ or by the user who scanned them.
If you include the duplicate checking option when creating your workflows, the app will alert the app user that a barcode has already been scanned. You should also select a reset period. For example, you could reset daily if the checkpoint needs to be scanned daily.
There are two options. Firstly, the most common method by far is to enable GPS location tracking while the app is in use. On the Advanced Step when creating your services, you would simply check the option to capture location as a background function without interrupting the app user.
Secondly, you could use NFC tags embedded in your labels. The app would read the NFC chip’s unique device ID instead of a barcode or QR code. In that way, you would have very high confidence the security guard was actually at the checkpoint. Using NFC is described in this knowledge base article.
