Remote Workshop supports the use of 3rd party barcode devices on some screens. Predominately, barcode use is in the stock-related screens to scan in stock or sell stock. Job cards also print a barcode that can be used in the timeclock module to scan a technician onto a job when clocking on.

IMPORTANT: The barcode scanner must be set up to scan the barcode and perform a TAB command as a post operation. Please refer to your barcode scanner's manufacturer website or user guide for instructions on how to set this up with your scanner.
