Barcode scanner announced
IntelliScanner has announced its IntelliScanner Pro, an inventory-management barcode scanner geared toward small-business customers. The USB-based scanner tracks inventory barcodes and utilizes included software to build a database for asset stocks, location and costs. The IntelliScanner Pro ships with asset-management software and pre-printed barcode tags for assets without barcodes, for $200. It works on Mac OS X 10.4 and higher, requiring a USB port.
The scanner works with database software, including Excel, FileMaker Pro, Bento, Access, QuickBooks, MYOB and others. Its inventory software can import and export data to and from database and accounting software and it includes a keyboard emulator that allows the scanner to insert barcodes into applications beyond supported software.
