Barcode Tracking

Barcode tracking gives you control over your assets. Scan barcodes to update your asset's location, look up information or check out equipment.

What is Barcode Tracking?

Barcode tracking or QR code tracking is the practice of using barcodes (or QR codes) to track assets. When similar pieces of equipment have unique barcode labels, it's easier to identify, check out, or look up information about the asset with a quick scan of the label. Nowadays, barcode scanning can easily be done with your smartphone.

Barcode tracking is always done in combination with barcode scanning software. Have a look at what Cheqroom has to offer below.

Users can easily flag broken equipment or report any issues in the app. The person in charge of repairs gets notified automatically and can schedule repairs right away.


Barcode tracking is really helpful in identifying assets: you know exactly which piece of equipment you need because it’s tagged. It’s just easier to find stuff.
