4 Features of the BoxHero Mobile App

The BoxHero mobile app integrates seamlessly with the web and desktop apps. Everything you record through the app is stored in the cloud in real-time, so it's like having a personal digital assistant (PDA) for warehouses with you. Here are some key features of the BoxHero mobile app.

Intuitive transaction view

The first screen of the mobile app is a dashboard that gives you an at-a-glance view of your inventory status. It reflects today's and yesterday's total inventory count, receipts, and shipments recorded in the system in real time. You can also filter the item list to see a visualized inventory history by attribute. This real-time, visualized inventory information helps you make fast, flexible decisions.

Scan barcodes and QR codes

The BoxHero mobile app uses your smartphone's camera as a barcode scanner so that you can scan barcodes as well as QR codes. If you have a Bluetooth scanner, you can connect it to BoxHero and the app. If you're having trouble scanning a barcode, you can enter the barcode digits manually. The BoxHero app also allows you to take inventory using these barcode and QR code scanning capabilities, which is a process where you pull out all of your products and verify that your computerized inventory matches your physical inventory.


Quickly find inventory information for a specific product by entering text or scanning a barcode. Search using keywords like product name, barcode, attributes, and more to find what you're looking for, no matter how many products you have listed. BoxHero's powerful search feature is great for the field, where you need to quickly check the availability of a specific product. If you don't see what you're looking for in the product list, you can register the product directly from the mobile app.


Low stock notifications

Low inventory can lead to late deliveries, out-of-stocks, and unhappy customers. With the BoxHero mobile app, you don't have to worry about running out of stock, because you can get low stock alerts anytime, anywhere with your smartphone. Low stock alerts happen when your total inventory of a product drops below the level you set as your safety stock.
