In-app image recognition ultimately confused and frustrated users while increasing inventory cycle times.   Indeed, it is not a solution for iCat inventory professionals who require accuracy and speed over anything. 

Our latest Audio Inventory feature allows users to quickly and confidently add perfect descriptions to their inventory.  When taking a picture, the app listens to you. Our AI solution will select the matching description from your Internal iCat Catalog or our national contents replacement database.

To turn this feature on or off during inventory, tap the blue microphone icon in the bottom right of the camera view (by default, it will be Off),  and then select if you want it on or off in the future.

Once it's on, and you take a picture, describe the item with as few words as possible.  You have a few seconds. If you don't want to wait, tap the grey screen when you are done speaking.

Remember that the status you selected prior is critical, as it determines which database of descriptions it will process from (leave it for cleanable/salvageable, which uses iCat's cleaning database along with your custom descriptions - or select a replacement type status if non-salvageable and matching descriptions are pulled from iCat's national replacement catalog, which includes essential depreciation data such as class, type, category, and depreciation.

Select your status first!
