Shurtape Technologies, LLC (Hickory, NC) announces the release of Duck Pro by Shurtape BR Code Scannable Solutions, powered by the BitRip app. Developed in partnership with Nastro Technologies, a tech startup specializing in asset tracking technology, the two companies began developing the product line together in August 2022 after merging their respective expertise in industrial adhesive applications and asset tracking technology. The new line features unique tapes and labels preprinted with dynamic scannable codes that can be used to organize and track critical jobsite information, connecting physical objects to critical digital information.
In conjunction with the free, easy-to-use BitRip mobile app, BR Code is a tool designed to help streamline workflow and communication, so managers can use the scannable tapes or labels to pinpoint precise physical locations of building components and supplies, create installation and repair notes or voice memos, upload files relating to specific components or link the code to already existing job data.
Unlike other scannable codes, such as QR codes, the preprinted codes on BR Code scannable tapes and labels offer a straightforward approach to labeling and tracking. There is no need to spend time generating and printing custom codes for scanning. With BR Code, users can quickly grab a label or roll of preprinted tape, stick a piece to a physical object, then scan and connect the code to an unlimited amount of digital information. Photos, text files, maintenance documentation, PDFs, hyperlinks, video links, voice memos, instructions, GPS location data and more can all be linked to a single, scannable code.
