How to use labels with Collabox
Important: You must install an application on your smartphone (or tablet) that can read barcodes and QR codes if you do not have a scanner capable of reading these different types of codes. This is a prerequisite to be able to use the labels with Collabox.
To read a label, be sure to perform the following two steps in order:

  1. Log into your Collabox account on your smartphone, tablet or computer to which a scanner is connected. This step is essential for you to have access to product information, since we have developed a security system that prevents unauthorized persons from gaining access to it.
  2. Use your app to scan the label you want to read, or your scanner. Your product information page will open.

The different types of code
Barcode takes a little more work than QR codes to access a product sheet. Indeed, you must configure your phone so that the detailed sheet of the scanned product opens.
