Our plan with this is to build a few options to choose from, with minor things able to be enabled/disabled. These aren’t built in a technology that allows us to make an editor though.
It’s planned, but no estimated time we’ll actually work on it.
to answer your question...
yes, we can scan bar codes and upc codes, however, presently, it appears that can only be printed on a 1 1/8 x 3.5 label.
In my cell phone repair store, we have huge need for much smaller labels. Ideally, a small 1x2 or even smaller. Would be used for pricing on everything we have to sell and would contain a scannable upc code, a very short description of the product (e.g. IPH 8, otterbox, black) and a price.
For the back of the house, these smaller labels would be used to label every single piece of inventory that comes in.
Presently, we are using a sharpie and writing on the packaging of every screen (and microscopic part in a bag (like a tiny iphone camera) the date of arrival, which supplier it came from and what the part is. Needless to say, this is very time consuming.
A small printable label would solve all of this.
In the repairshopr inventory module, there are two options to print inventory or price labels, but they are both printing on giant labels. The sheer expense of trying to use these labels on everything would be ridiculous. And, let's be real, in a cell phone store, there are many items for sale and inventory that just don't have the real estate to put a giant sticker on them.
I understand that repairshopr was created for computer repair stores, not phone stores. However, you are definitely marketing to phone repair stores now.... and you have a lot of competition.
I would hope something as simple as this could be rolled out quickly... as it appears it's been being asked for since 2014!!!
RepairQ, IQ metrix and many others are calling weekly. I've been very loyal to Repairshopr... however after my first and only support request in over 2 years of being a customer and basically being told to figure it out on my own... and patiently waiting for this label adjustment to land (going on two years since you said it's planned)... I have to admit I'm considering looking elsewhere. I thought maybe I was being 'needy' by wanting the label options... but with 35 other comments and 130 votes (!!!!!)... i realize what I want isn't unique at all.
Hope this helps.
I agree with this request.
As well, a system within repairshopr to track and send a device to another shop, when needed for specialty repair (like micro soldering).
maintain stock doesn't work for serialized items. still looking for a way to run a report to see the serial numbers of all certain sim cards sold.
i am looking for this functionality as well. we are a phone store and provide loaners to customers all the time. would be great to be able to click on an asset (phone) and repairshopr tells me where the phone is or which customer has the phone.
