TRIGGERING YOUR DIMENSIONER: TWO OPTIONS

FreightSnap has developed two convenient methods for initiating scans from your dimensioner. Choose the option that works best for your workflow.

TRIGGERING APP

Recommended for companies who don’t use barcode scanners to keep tabs on their freight. Here’s how it works:

Simply enter a freight ID number into the app, then tap the “Scan” button. Your dimensioner will automatically scan your freight, sending the measurements, photos and weight of your shipment straight into your desired back-office system – all in a few seconds.

The triggering app comes pre-installed on mobile device or computer, either of which can be placed at a workstation near the dimensioner, or installed on each forklift in your operation.

BARCODE SCANNER

Use a barcode scanner to trigger your dimensioner. Here’s how it works:

Place your freight in the measurement zone, then scan a barcode tied to your freight. Seconds later, and your dimensioner sends the measurements, photos and the weight of your shipment straight into your desired back-office system.

Outfit each forklift with it’s own barcode scanner, or place a scanner at a nearby workstation to maximize throughput.
