For mobile workers who are already preoccupied, looking up items, assets, and even tasks in FieldAware can be a chore. Companies that have hundreds or thousands of items, assets, and tasks with complicated naming conventions have an even harder time.
Using the barcode scanner a mobile worker can pull up the complete make, model, and serial number for an asset and add photos and notes to the record. That same worker can also add items and cost to a job without having to identify them and manually look then up. Adding tasks to a job is just as simple.
