After creating a job, print out barcodes to bring to the job site so that the road team can properly tag all the large items and boxes.

To enable this step, you must have:

  1. Your computer connected to the internet,

  2. A continuous roll barcode printer installed/setup, or laser printer with the correct Avery label media.

  3. Adobe Reader installed.

Note: Barcodes are only required IF tracking contents back at the restoration facility is apriority. Using a barcode scanner to transfer, assign cleaning status, reprint barcodes,and tackle all the physical work related to the contents restoration process is EASY. Set up the contents division for success: take the time to get the right equipment setup for use.

The efficiency impact to an organization powered by iCAT which uses barcodes on allboxes and single items is invaluable.

From Admin Header

  1. Select <Generate Unique Barcode Series> from the Admin menu header select Jobs.

  4. Generate Barcodes: Select the Generate Barcodes.

  5. Enter Number: Enter the Number of barcodes you need in the popup and selectGenerate.

The more jobs completed, the more accurate the estimate of barcodes to be consumed will become.
