SmartScan Barcode Translator


bar code translatorWhat Is SmartScan Barcode Translator?

SmartScan Barcode Translator adds the power of bar code scanning to QuickBooks.

The SmartScan Barcode Translator program pairs the bar code you assign with the corresponding item in your QuickBooks item list. Existing manufacturer's bar codes can be used or you can create your own internal bar code numbering system.

Barcode Translator allows you to scan a product bar code directly into a QuickBooks transaction's item field and have the corresponding item code appear on the transaction.

Barcode Translator will increase productivity through the speed and accuracy of selecting the correct item from your QuickBooks item list instantly.

Barcode Translator allows the cursor to jump to another field instantly after a bar code has been scanned. This will save you time by reducing or eliminating keystrokes during your data entry process.

SmartScan Barcode Translator runs as a service in the background on your computer while you work within QuickBooks. Barcode Translator contains a table of values which will translate bar codes into the item codes in your QuickBooks system.

An example of the translation process would be scanning a product UPC code with a serial bar code reader when entering a sale transaction and having the scanned UPC code "translate" to the corresponding QuickBooks item code.

Barcode Translator also allows you to define where the cursor should be placed once a bar code has been read. Using our "screen patterning" feature, you can tell the scanner what to add after the scan for each screen that you will be working with. Any combination of keys (i.e. tab, return, numbers, letters, function keys) can be added to a scan. This will save or even eliminate keystrokes during your data entry process.

*  Barcode Translator requires a serial scanning device for reading bar codes. Available scanners are shown below and are sold separately.
