Once you have physically attached a retrofit RFID tag, dot or label to your piece of equipment, you can scan the RFID number directly into your Papertrail record on the mobile app.

Before you start working with the RFID reader, please ensure:

  • You are logged into your Papertrail account

  • You have a good internet connection

  • The account is synced

Please note - Once your bluetooth RFID reader is connected to your mobile device it acts as a 'keyboard wedge' and you will be unable to add your username or password at the log in page or type anything else.

Step by Step

Turn on and connect the RFID reader to your mobile device via the bluetooth setting page.

Go back to your previously opened Papertrail account and navigate to the record for the piece of equipment that you have added a retrofit RFID tag to. Click on the record and click View more details.

Select the RFID option from the list.

This brings up a box to scan the RFID number into.

Press the scan button on the RFID reader and hold close to the tag until the light goes green and it beeps to enter the unique number. Once scanned into Papertrail, you will be taken back to the record details that will display the scanned RFID number.

Repeat this process to add a unique RFID number to any other record that you have tagged.
