By using the mobile app, Fiix users can scan both barcodes, and Fiix QR codes. Barcode data can be added to existing assets by scanning barcodes using an Android or iPhone device. When scanning a barcode for an item that’s not currently in inventory, users can choose to add the new item to their inventory. The same scanning function can be used to scan Fiix QR codes. Scanning a Fiix QR code brings up data associated with a particular asset including work orders, and asset information.
Note: Fiix QR codes can be printed off, adhered to assets and scanned using your mobile device. See Print QR-code Asset Tags for a detailed explanation on printing Fiix QR codes.
