You can use QR Code scanning hardware with AssetSonar in your PC/Mac browser.
If you’d like to learn more about best practices and recommendations for using QR Codes, please click here.
Note: The process described below is applicable to Assets, Asset Stock, and Inventory. We will use the example of an Asset to illustrate the process.
To create new Assets via scanning, enable ‘Barcode Reader’ from Settings → Add Ons → Hardware Scanner Integration. Hit ‘Update’ at the top of the page.
Once enabled, here are the steps to add an Asset by scanning via PC/Mac:
Step 1: Go to the Assets page. Click the ‘Add Assets via Scanning’ button on the right.
Step 2: On this page, you can scan as many labels as you want using a Barcode scanner to create Assets. Please note, if you’re scanning multiple Assets’ labels, all of them must be of the same type – e.g. 10 different labels for 10 same laptops, all having the same specs and the name ‘HP Mini 110’. Useful when you’re adding the same Assets in bulk.
To add different types of Assets, you’ll have to scan and create them separately in the system.
Step 3: On the next page, enter the details of the scanned items. Again, if multiple labels are scanned, only similar types of Assets can be created at a time.
Hit ‘Create Assets’, and you now have new Assets added to the system via scanning.
Users can also create Assets via scanning by using our mobile app.
