The in-app scanner within One-Key lets you assign Asset ID Tags, and to find where a tagged or barcoded item belongs by scanning it using your smartphone's camera. This eliminates the need for expensive standalone scanning hardware. In addition to quick lookups, One-Key's barcode reader also allows you to easily transfer tagged and barcoded items between jobsites.
