Papertrail works with a number of different scannable solutions such as barcodes, RFID and NFC. RFID and NFC solutions rely on having a tag, dot, label or microchip either incorporated or attached to your equipment and access to the corresponding reader. The easiest way to scan barcodes is with the built-in barcode scanner in the Papertrail mobile application.

Papertrail prides itself on being brand agnostic. Please see below for a list of solutions available:
