Using Route4Me Barcode Scanner (FAQ)
Barcodes are typically created by a barcode software that stores text or numeric data in a one-dimensional or two-dimensional barcode format. The amount of data that can be stored in a barcode depends on the barcode type. In some cases, barcodes might contain information such as a product serial number (SKU), a tracking number, or even address data. However, not all barcodes contain all the data that you may want to extract out of them.
With Route4Me, the actual data contained in the barcode does not affect your ability to scan and import that barcode data as custom text information for tracking, scanning, or reconciliation purposes. For example, when you scan one or more barcodes, the information in the data of the barcode image is automatically captured and added as a separate custom field(s) and associated with the stop on the route where the scan occurred. The scanned data then becomes searchable.
