App-users can scan, validate and post barcode data, timestamps, GPS locations, photos and form data using iOS and Android cameras – no scanning accessories are required.
Today we launched a Postback URL tool allowing captured data to be automatically inserted into QuickBase – a customizable, third-party database service hosted in the cloud.
We aim to improve data capture and collection with fast scanning, the convenience of using the just the cameras of iOS and Android devices and now the automated insertion of captured data into cloud-based databases like QuickBase.
The app creates formal scan records consisting of the barcode value and associated data, including timestamps, location, visual evidence and the answers to conditional questions presented to the app-user after each scan.
If the app-user’s device has Internet connectivity, scan records are inserted in real-time. Alternatively, if network or Wi-Fi connectivity is slow or unavailable, scan records are stored on the device until connectivity is restored.
Fast, Accurate Barcode Scanning
Our app’s SD PRO camera-based scan engine can read 47 different barcode symbologies, including those printed on IDs, badges, tickets, industrial assets, consumer goods, invoices, receipts, packing lists, shipping labels, etc. It can quickly and accurately scan virtually any barcode, even the most complex, small and badly damaged ones
On the reporting side, our clients use our servers to view, filter, export and share their scan records in template form. However, a number of clients also wanted to insert those records directly into third-party databases. We enabled that with our API but that requires coding. Launching our QuickBase tool is the first of many we will offer in the coming months that require no coding.
Please look here for instructions for setting up your Postback to QuickBase.
