A QR code is a unique code that you can use to identify an asset. When scanned using the camera on a mobile phone it opens the asset ready to complete a test. It's easy to setup and use and will save you lots of time managing assets in the field.
(Pro tip) Once set up, you can even get your customer to take a photo of the QR code if the unit breaks down. Saving you a possible trip out to site to get the asset details.
You can print the QR code labels specific for the asset with the asset ID and serial number on the label, or pre print generic QR code that technicians can add to assets in the field.
The diagram shows what happens in different scenarios when a technician in the fields scans a QR code
Pre-print generic QR codes labels
Step one is to print the QR codes to labels. You need to be logged in as a scheduler to print QR codes. Click on Assets in the accounts dropdown to open the asset list page. Click on print QR codes to generate QR codes for your account that you can later add to assets.
Select how many QR codes you want to pre-print and add any text you want under the QR code. Use the placeholders to add business details. Click print the QR codes
Each QR code will be printed on a new page. If you have an A4 sheet with labels click on more settings and select the number of labels on the sheet (ex 9) to add more than one label to a page. If you have a label printer refer to the software that came with the printer.
If you're sending these to a commercial label printer, ask them what format they want. If they accept PDF (most do) select save to PDF in the print popup and send the PDF file to your printer.
Print a QR code for an existing asset
Open the asst that you want to print a QR code for. Scroll down to the QR code section and click Print QR. Adjust the size of the label in the print dialogue box for your label printer.
