    What Does a Property Inspection App Do?

    Create formal electronic records of property inspections with a timestamp, photos, and associated data collected along with each barcode or NFC scan.







    FAQs About Property Inspections

    How can I create inspection checkpoints?

    Most of our property management clients attach barcode labels near the doors of buildings or rooms that they need to inspect. The majority of our customers use a third-party service for the process of label creation itself. While you can generate barcode values and images on codeREADr, it can be time-consuming. Also, it is not ideal for mass label printing. Thus, customers manually or automatically upload a database of ID values to our site. Then, they use our app to verify the values on location.

    How can I require my employees to provide pictures and/or answer questions about their property?

    Using our Questions feature, you can add notes, answer questions, or even take a photo of the checkpoint.

    Can we generate a report that shows property data per day or week?

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

    How can I prevent people from scanning a checkpoint twice accidentally?

    Implement Duplicate checking, which alerts the user that a barcode has already been scanned and is no longer valid.

    How can I prevent my employees from marking a location as completed without physically being there?

    One feature that comes as a default on our app is “Lookup.” The Lookup feature allows any user to search the associated database and create a scan record for a barcode without physically scanning anything. Some customers find this useful for people who have forgotten or lost their barcode value. However, others prefer to disable this feature.

    Using advanced settings, you can disable lookup so that users cannot create a record without scanning an image with the camera.

    Can I include a picture items that need to be inspected when the checkpoint label is scanned?

    When importing or creating your database on codeREADr, you can use Webify formatting to include photos hosted remotely. The response text can include any information you’d like to associate and display with the person you are tracking.

    Can I make separate accounts for each employee and/or separate scanning for each property?

    There are many methods for separating data into different segments. Some create databases for a set of rooms to check and associate each list with its own service by building. Also, others create separate users for each employee or security shift. Some use one database, one service, and one user. Then, they simply separate the data when exporting the records to a spreadsheet. Ultimately, it’s up to you how to organize your data for your needs.

    Can I make the app look any different? For example, can change what it says when a room has already been checked off or include my company’s logo?

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

    Does pricing depend on how many employees 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 in during your monthly billing period. Moreover, the monthly count is not based on concurrently used devices. Instead, it’s the total number of unique devices that signed in during your monthly billing period. Furthermore, each month, this count resets and each device sign in counts towards your plan limit.

    Do we need special hardware to scan labels?

    codeREADr is compatible with most devices. For example, it works with iOS, Android, and mobile computers. However, we do not sell any hardware. Thus, 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. For example, conditional validation and cross-device duplicate checking require internet connection. However, you can verify a ticket against a database and download offline.
