In UpKeep, we support UPC and QR codes for Assets and Parts. You can easily check-in and scan out parts from your inventory by using the camera on your phone to read its barcode.

TIP: We also have a free, external QR code Generator here!

By default, UpKeep will generate a QR code for you from the web application when information is entered in the barcode section. With your QR code, you can download and save your QR codes or download them as labels (in Avery 1” x 2 5/8” format).

Most customers tend to laminate the QR codes or print them onto a label and place them onto assets or parts. UpKeep also has a partnership with Camcode where you can purchase discounted asset tags.

TIP: Already have a QR code that you’d like to use? You can still add the barcode number to the asset or part. While this QR code won’t look exactly the same, if you scan either QR code, it’ll pull up the same asset/part.
