Recommended Barcode Scanner

started a topic over 2 years ago

What barcode scanners can you recommend that will work best for us and are available here in UAE?

Preferably with good tech support to guide us to install and use for our inventory.

We are just starting to learn how to use barcode scanners for our inventory procedure so any kind of help that you can give will readyy be appreciated.

  • Hey, Just some advice. Stay away from the ScanSku devices. The one we got last year had an outdated version of Android and security patch version (years old). There was no way to update this. We were trying to get a company-wide security certification and because of the age of the Android version we had to stop using the device.

  • Most new Android phones have scanning capabilities built into their camera apps for QR codes. In other words, all you have to do is open the camera app and hold the code up to the camera lens.

    Some older Android models, however, require third-party software to scan QR codes, and any Android will need a third-party app to scan barcodes. Luckily, there are dozens of free barcode- and QR code-scanning apps available on the Google Play Store.

    These apps are nearly all the same, and will help you scan both barcodes and QR codes with ease.

    Here's how to set them up:

    1. Open the Google Play Store and search for "barcode scanner."

    2. Find the app you want, install it, and then open it on your Android device.

    3. Hold a barcode or QR code up to the box that appears in the middle of the screen.
