Beam Lens makes accessing a technology asset's information easier while you are in the field. Using the app, you can pull up and edit asset pages simply by scanning asset barcodes. Whether you're in the warehouse, on the truck, in the studio or on location, all your asset data is readily accessible from your phone. To use Beam Lens, however, you must assign barcode values to your assets in your Beam inventory.
Before you start make sure you meet the following requirements:
If you want to learn how to create and configure custom fields, read our tutorial on creating custom fields.
Before you can start assigning barcode values to your assets, you need to tell Beam which field in your account is being used to store barcodes. This will allow Beam to know which field to look for if you query a barcode using the Beam Lens barcode scanner app.
Now that we’ve prepared our barcode field, you’re ready to add barcodes to your assets in Beam!
Once you’ve added barcodes to your assets, your technicians can use the Beam Lens Android app to scan asset barcodes using their phone to pull up asset pages. If you’re interested in learning how to use Beam Lens, check out our documentation on accessing asset pages using Beam Lens.
