Step Two: Track Assets In The Field Using A Mobile App
Use a smartphone and a mobile app for the real time field asset tracking with QR code scanning.
How To Track Field Assets Using A Mobile App
A field technician just needs to scan a QR code to identify asset. He can then access
asset info, as well as record asset check out, check in or re-location in the mobile app.
A mobile app provides QR code scanning and data entry capabilities, as well as an instant link to a back end cloud software.
All asset tracking info recorded in the mobile app instantly updates central database, and becomes available to all
authorized software users and devices.
What You Can Record In The Asset Tracking Mobile App
When you record asset check out or re-location in the mobile app, you can record any extra info that you want to keep track of.
A QR Inventory software allows you to create custom asset transaction types, and define what data should be recorded for each
type. You can require that employees fill out equipment inspection form on check out and return,
record a job for which equipment is being used, set expected return date, and more.
Field technicians will be able to fill the required forms in the mobile app. They can add photos for visual documentation, and collect
signatures on a smartphone. GPS location of the asset transaction, an employee who performed it, as well as date and time
are recorded automatically.
How Fast Is Asset Tracking In The Mobile App Using Different Tags
A QR code scanning makes asset identification and tracking in the field fast and easy.
An employee records all needed data on the transaction, then scans assets one by one to add them to the batch.
If you have high volume of assets to transfer, you can use other tags and scanning equipment to make the process even faster:
