Been asked to do a hardware audit for some clients, and we figured using barcodes etc would probably be the best way to go about this so in future we can just scan an item and pull up its details.

 

But to do this, we are looking for a solution that will allow us to scan the codes and export them to a CSV - we all have iPhones so an app would be great but all the apps Ive found so far are purely for stock levels, or for finding pricing on an item - nothing for asset management etc.

 

Any ideas ?

 

Before anyone mentions it, yes, I do have Spiceworks running on one network, but due to the network layout its not pulling in a lot of info.

Can't help thinking a dedicated scanning device will be so much better for the job.

 

Perhaps something like this. https://www.waspbarcode.com/asset-tracking/fixed-it-assets

You could use our (NZ) product WatchMyGear, but you should note that it runs on Android phones only. 

 

We can supply you with QR code stickers, then use the Android app to scan the stickers to identify the asset and it's location. There's a customer portal for viewing and locating all your assets. 

 

If you're interested, give Carl (at Abletech) a call tomorrow on 04 910 3100.

 

Cheers

Yeah we do have some older scanners etc but running ancient copy of Windows on them and batteries not lasting long. 

 

 

 

Will take a look at that.

I just use a brother label maker with a built in barcode generator, or a barcode font and msword label templates. Print out a page of them and stick them on stuff for your preferred inventory management app.

If you have any other info besides the barcode to collect then take a look at Survey 123. You can generate the forms online - including barcode scanning.

https://survey123.arcgis.com

SaaS offering. If there's only a handful of you then you could use a free developer account.

Edit, sorry forgot to add they have the client app on iOS and Android.

I've done an application to print the shipping label by scanning the barcode on parcels and output the printout, but it is running on windows platform.

 

I think you can make one on smartphones.
