Barcodery is cloud inventory/asset management system which allows track items across several locations. Barcodery consists of web application and also android application. Unfortunately there is no ios application yet.

In Barcodery you can print QR codes, label your items and scan it with android application.

Getting Started

Basics

In Barcodery there are important three things: items, location and in/out entries

Items
Each item can have custom field defined.

Locations
Items are placed into location by adding In or OUT entry.

In/Out entries
In or Out entry is connection between item and location. By adding In or Out entry you place item into location or take item out of location. By adding In entry you put item into location. With Out entry you take item out of location. Move between locations is done automatically by adding In entry and then Out entry for particular location.

Requests

Requests are used as some kind of item orders. You can request item to be in a specific location. Request helps you to manage these requirements. You can request item tool to be in a location worker_room1. The initial state of request is active. It means that tool was not moved inot worker_room1. When you move tool into worker_room1 (by adding In entry or move) request state becomes covered. It means request is fulfilled.

You can create request using this location: https://barcodery.com/#!/requests. Each request groups multiple request items. Add request item by clicking on request and then by clicking on Add request item. You can also force request into covered state. This means that you change request state despite the fact there was no in entry for the requested item and is not in the requested location.

Audits

Audits are used when you want to physically check if items are in location where they should be. For example Barcodery says you have 15 items in location garage. And now you want to check if it's still true. If none of the item is lost or missing. So you create audit for location garage. Barcodery then creates list of items which should be in garage. Then you can go to the garage and scan items, set valid counts and in the end you see what is missing or if you have anything that shouldn't be in garage. You can close audit. It means you finished audit and items counts in audit could not be changed. PLease note you can create audit for location or for category.

Locations

You put items into location. Location can be created, renamed and deleted. Please note that only empty location can be deleted.

Categories

Each item can have assigned multiple categories. Category can be created, renamed and deleted. Please note that only empty Category can be deleted.

Tags

Each item can have assigned multiple tags. Tag can be created, renamed and deleted. Please note that only empty Tag can be deleted. Tags are very similar to categories. Technically they are implemented same way. If you do not have usage for tags you do not need to use them.

States

Each item can have assigned multiple states. State can be created, renamed and deleted. Please note that only empty State can be deleted. Unlike categories and tags each state have a color which can be also defined. States can be used to indicate if item is broken (red color) or working (green color) or...
