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 is connected to the internet,

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

  3. Adobe Reader installed.

Note: Barcodes are only required IF tracking contents back at the restoration facility is a priority. 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 set up for use.

The efficiency impact to an organization powered by iCat, which uses barcodes on all boxes and single items, is invaluable.

To print barcodes for a Packout:

From Job Dashboard

  1. Navigate to the Jobs View and select the reference number of Job needing pack-out barcodes.

  2. You can also narrow your job list by creating a Job search. Type in your Job or use the Pull-down to select the Job, then select <Search>. This will display only the Job you chose in the Job List.

  3. Select Job <Reference #>: Select the blue link Ref # next to the job name. This will open its Job Dashboard.

  4. Generate Barcodes: Select the Generate Barcodes.

  5. Enter Number: Enter the Number of barcodes you need in the popup and select Generate. The number should be based on the job size: consider how many boxes and single items may be removed from the location. It is better to select more than less. The more jobs completed, the more accurate the estimate of barcodes to be consumed will become.
