The EZRentOut mobile app uses your phone’s camera to scan the Barcodes and QR Codes of rental and sale items. Not only can you scan items into Drafted orders quickly using the app, but you can also scan the QR Code on an invoice to pull up an order and take actions on it. In addition to this, you can verify items in orders with a quick scan. Let’s take these one at a time.

Scanning Invoices

Scanning invoices is very straightforward with EZRentOut. To start off, go to the main screen on the mobile app and press the menu icon on the top right. When the menu slides out, go to Scan Order → Scan by Invoice:

Please note that Active orders refer to any orders that aren’t Completed or Voided. Scanning items in this way can help get a sense of all the commitments relating to a specific item.

Scanning for Browser

You can also communicate directly with the browser version of EZRentOut using the mobile app. Press the menu icon on the top right, and go to Scan Order → Scan for Browser:

Now, simply scan in the item you wish to view in the browser. This will open a window prompting you to sign in, and you can take it from there:

This can also come in handy if an item has been misplaced or lost, as it provides information that could help you recover the asset.

Adding Items to an Order

One of the best parts of scanning with the EZRentOut mobile app is being able to add dozens of items to an order quickly! You can do this by drafting a new order, and then scrolling all the way to the bottom to the button that says ‘Add Items to this Order’.

Next, click the ‘Add Assets by Scanning’ button, and begin your scan! The system will tell you if some of your items were not found:
