AirTrack S1 Used for Check-In/Check-Out and Attendance Tracking at Red Deer Public School District

Posted December 12, 2016

Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High School, part of the Red Deer Public School District, was looking for a cost effective way to check items in and out of the library and bookstore. Additionally, the school wanted to use the same scanner in a different part of their school to track the attendance of their students by scanning the barcode off of their students’ ID cards. Most importantly, they wanted something that was compatible with their existing management and tracking software.

Barcodes, Inc. recommended the AirTrack S1 for both their check-in/check-out and attendance tracking applications. The S1 is a great linear imager that offers versatile barcode scanning and is equipped with green spot technology for good-read feedback. Barcodes supplied Red Deer Public School District with a demo device to test the compatibility with their software. They were more than pleased with the compatibility and performance of the AirTrack scanner. Furthermore, they were impressed to have a great reference with the University of Notre Dame Hesburgh Library. The school district is already working with Barcodes, Inc. on a new project to implement barcode scanners into their ACORN fee management system, which will involve more AirTrack barcode scanners.

White Paper : iOS Compatibility

Posted October 29, 2015

IOSWhat is it?

Not all barcode scanners or data capture devices are compatible with Apple iOS devices, and for those that are, a significant amount of testing and development are required to assure proper device operation. However, after a huge demand from small and medium-sized business owners to incorporate iPads, iPhones, and other Apple devices into their workforce management workflow, Apple invested extensive time and resources into certifying iOS devices with select data capture devices. Now, business owners have the ability to connect their Apple device to a data capture device via Bluetooth or a physical sled or cradle in order to conduct asset tracking, point of sale, inventory management, and other applications.

When is it coming?

iOS compatibility exists today. Many businesses ranging from small to enterprise-level are using iPads, iPhones and iPods to perform inventory management, asset tracking, and mobile point of sale activities. Hardware devices such as barcode scanners, label printers, receipt printers, cash drawers, and RFID readers are now equipped with software utilities that allow for connection to your preferred Apple device.

Gain Control Over your Assets with RFID Asset – Modern Software for Growing Businesses

Posted October 2, 2015

One of the complex challenges small and medium sized organizations face is efficiently keeping track of critical assets as their organizations scale. Without a reliable automated asset management system, there is a sharp increase in redundancies, expenditures, and labor.

Imagine locating many diverse assets in a room in a matter of seconds, rather than hours. Because RFID technology reads multiple tags at once without requiring a line of sight, customers are able to more quickly and accurately locate and track assets without the physical challenges of scanning bar codes and manual methods.

RFID Asset maximizes Radio Frequency Identification technology to automate asset tracking and management in a wide variety of environments and situations. The software supports passive RFID tags, barcodes, fixed readers like the Zebra FX7500 and mobile handheld readers like Zebra’s MC3190-Z and MC9190-Z.

5 Ways the Internet of Things Adds Value to Manufacturing and Field Mobility

Posted March 3, 2015

Field-Service_Industry_Home_01Manufacturers and mobile workers are the unsung heroes of invention and innovation. Their creativity builds stronger economies in their organizations, communities and around the world, and their services keep everything moving forward. But the landscape is intricate, and it’s a constant battle to maintain profit margins, revenues and quality of service. With the vast opportunities for waste throughout global manufacturing supply chains, it’s not surprising that enterprises are focusing on cost reduction and ways to improve efficiency and accuracy across their organizations.

With the increase of devices linked to manufacturing and mobility processes comes the increase in data available. However, much of this information is disjointed across the enterprise, making it difficult to obtain a realtime view of assets, people and transactions. When this decentralized scenario is replicated across the enterprise, with countless devices running disparately, inefficiencies continue to mount. This leaves enterprise workers incapable of harnessing value from their data.
