A QR Inventory mobile app is natively integrated with the Socket Mobile line of bluetooth barcode scanners. Native integration allows you to process inventory fast, without extra navigation or clicks.

Using IoT Technologies For A Fully Automated Inventory And Assets Management

IoT (Internet of Things) technologies play a big role in improving an inventory management process. IoT offers a higher degree of automation as compared to the barcode or QR code scanning methods. In the QR Inventory software you can use smart RF tags (NFC tags, BLE tags, or RFID tags) along with or instead of barcodes and QR codes.

You can use a smartphone for scanning NFC and BLE tags. If you want to use RFID tags you will need an RFID sled for the smartphone. A Bluetooth IoT asset tracking system allows you to use either a smartphone or a Bluetooth IoT gateway for a fully automated tracking of assets and materials tagged with the BLE beacon tags.
