Data Capture
Reading Time: 2 minutes

While often overlooked, data capture is one of the most promising avenues through which a business can make strategic decisions and understand the nuances of its processes on a meaningful level. Data capture simply revolves around the collection of various types of information, formatting, analyzing, and storing it in a way that is beneficial to the various processes of an organization.

Traditional data capture was mostly done manually, using complex forms. The data hence gathered had a high chance of being riddled with mistakes and it is not quite useful or actionable either. Thankfully, automated data capture allowed organizations to reduce errors associated with manual filing, save costs, increase the speed of processing, and get the maximum insights out of the data collected. Data collection is an extremely important aspect of most enterprise software applications and is crucial for a bunch of processes. There are multiple ways of digital data capturing, such as paperless forms, optical/character recognition, barcode technology, etc.

There are various industry use cases that involve scanning of barcode and QR codes, as scanning is a great way for data capture. A few examples of these are:

  • Scanning inventory in the warehouse or any other location.
  • Scanning previously issued visitor passes issued to allow or disallow the entry.
  • Scanning and pull up information from documents like invoices, purchase orders, etc.

Quixy allows enterprises to build applications that can be used to collect data effectively.

Let’s take a look at how it works:

Quixy provides 40+ drag-and-drop form controls to capture any information. The process works something like this:

To capture Barcode or QR Code information in the Form Builder, drop a text field onto the canvas.

In the properties field, check “Enable Scanner”.

If you want the scanner to open automatically when using the app, check “Open by Default”.
