Find Objects by Optical Codes

Finding objects via a Barcode or QR-Code on the UBIK® Client implies that a recommended application is installed on the device. Additionally the objects and the system needs to be prepared as described by these instructions. This guide describes how to use the features on the client.

Start a scanner

  1. Press one of the optical code scanning buttons in the top bar or in the start screen.
  2. Select the optical code type on the left side

You might want to switch that off in the Getac's settings (not in the UBIK settings - this is outside our control).

Scan an optical code

  1. Position the device in a way that the optical code is visible and stable in the camera view;
  2. Wait until the optical code is recognized by the scanner.
