Have any of you ever purchased a barcode scanner off Amazon? Also can someone please direct me to the best place to read up on how to use the barcode scanner. Thanks

To be honest I'm not sure. Amazon has a bunch of them, I was just wondering if it had to be a specific one. Can I use one that scans the entire code at one time, or does it have to go from left to right?

Default Barcode scanner

So just how many of use the barcode scanner?

Do you feel the scanner a time saver or is there room for improvement on the Gopher software side.

Personally I'd like to see the route sheet barcode actually use the customer name instead of the database id record. The scanner is a valuable tool for tracking movement and location times with the right scanner. I use my scanner for tracking equipment location and hrs of use as well as customer time stamps.

Have a great season!

Tom

I got a scanner from amazon last night and had in overnighted. Its the first one on the list, from the link below. It works great. I used it on a test sample of what my schedule will be, and it is awesome. I loaded in 25 mowings and had them invoiced in less than a minute. This is going to be a huge time and aggravation saver. I HIGHLY recommend.
