Using Route4Me’s Barcode Scanner on an Android Device

The primary goal of Route4Me’s Android Route Planner is to make your routing operations more efficient, secure, and flexible. When out in the field, using the barcode scanner helps to reduce the time of data input, as well as lower the chances of possible errors and data loss. With Route4Me’s barcode scanner, you can make sure that the information captured by your team members is always accurate and up-to-date. Route4Me also provides additional note customizations that allow configuring the number of barcodes that must be reconciled at a particular stop and ensure that your team members never deviate from the plan.

 

How to Scan a Barcode

To capture data from a barcode and attach it to a stop, first, go to “My Routes” from the navigation menu and then open the route that contains the corresponding stop.
