Create QR codes using a different label printer

Overview

Every asset, part, or work order record has its own unique QR code. Technicians can scan QR codes attached to any asset using a free scanner app on their mobile phone or tablet device. When the QR code is scanned, the technician is instantly connected to the page dedicated to that asset. Service information can be updated efficiently in real-time rather than waiting go head back to the office.

Users can create an unlimited number of codes for their facility with no restrictions on the number of scans per QR code. QR codes are created in high resolution, print-ready PDF format with 30 QR codes per page. The PDF files can be printed on Avery address labels and attached to assets in the user’s facility. The QR codes can be scanned with any smartphone QR Code reader app and the user is taken to the associated record in the CMMS. 

In some cases, you may want to print QR codes on different sized labels. 

WARNING :

When printing your own QR codes (either yourself, or a contractor), we have no control over the quality and characteristics of the final label. As such, we cannot guarantee that they will be compatible with your smartphone.

BEFORE PRINTING ALL YOUR LABELS, make sure that they will work : print a few and test them in real-world conditions.
