AssetScan is a mobile system that increases the speed and accuracy of recording the location of assets by scanning barcodes.
The system consists of a Portable Data Collection Terminal (PDT) with integrated barcode scanner and a desktop application for MS Windows based PC’s that handles the communications between the PDT and PC.
Locations, barcoded assets, and optionally serial numbers, can be scanned with the PDT.
When scanning is complete, the PDT is connected to the PC with a USB cable, and the data is transferred to the PC in CSV (Comma Separated Value) format from where it can be imported into another system or opened in MS Excel or other spreadsheet application.
AssetScan has a secondary function: The PDT may also be used like a standard USB ‘keyboard wedge’ scanner when connected to the PC with the appropriate USB cable.
