ASAP Systems Releases the Redesigned User Interface for Passport 6.0

Posted September 3, 2014

ASAP Systems has released an impressive redesigned user interface that allows users to choose between a few user interfaces, color schemes, and fonts, among other settings. The new Passport 6.0 user interface settings were engineered to serve a variety of technical skill levels, ranging from beginner to advanced. Performing inventory and asset management tasks is now easier and faster than ever before.

In the user settings area, users can now choose between the “classic” user interface view, and the new “multi-pane” or “tile” views. Passport users that are most comfortable navigating through the “classic” view can continue to use it with the same functionalities. Alternatively, for Windows users, the “tile” view mimics the look and feel of the latest Windows OS user interface. It displays tiles for different transactions, reports, and graphical analysis as the user scrolls horizontally. In the “multi-pane” view, designed for beginner users, there is a step-by-step “quick start” dashboard, a lifecycle diagram, recent transactions, and a graphical “snapshot” of data. Beyond the visual improvement of the user interface, the lasting effect of the upgrade is amplified inventory control for new and experienced users.

Apple iOS 8 keyboard update allows for system-wide barcode scanning

Posted June 5, 2014

Apple unveiled dozens of new features in its upcoming iOS 8 operating system for iPhone, iPods and iPads at their World Wide Developer Conference on Monday.

Of particular interest to those who use iOS devices for light inventory management or asset tracking is the support for custom 3rd party keyboards.

Android has supported 3rd party keyboards for years, but the feature is new to iOS. Third party keyboards are commonly used to offer different ways of entering text, by swiping, for example.

Custom keyboards can be used for more than just typing. They can also be developed with a new “scan” button that, when tapped, uses the camera to scan a barcode and enter the text or numbers from that barcode anywhere you can type: web pages, email, other apps, etc.
