Add a Barcode to an Asset by Scanning

Barcodes are great for speeding up the process of manually looking for an asset when creating or completing a Work Order. However, the process of inputting a new barcode is tedious and the likelihood of entering an incorrect character is high. To eliminate the chances of adding an incorrect barcode, scan the barcode using the Work Companion App.

This will help you to:

  • Eliminate manual Barcode entry through typing
  • Quickly add Barcodes to Assets
  • Accurately input Barcodes through scanning
