Let's first focus on the hardware needed to work with the barcode features of CharityTracker or Oasis Insight. While there are many barcode scanners, we have tested and recommended one of the following models:
NADAMOO Wireless Barcode Scanner
Motorola Symbol LI4278 Barcode Scanner Wireless
For digital signature capture, you have a few different options:
Option 1 - Touchscreen Devices
If a program requires a digital signature to be captured at distribution, an agency can capture the digital signature using a mouse, touchscreen or a signature pads/devices that connects via USB:
- Huion 420 Portable Digital Signature Board (Mac w/ Chrome) ~$20/each
- Wacom Intuos Pen and Touch Small Tablet (PC Only) ~$80/each
- Topaz T-S460-HSB-R Sig Pad (PC Only w/ Chrome) ~$110/each
- Topaz SigLite T-LBK460 Signature Pad (PC Only) ~$250/each
If you are using a touchscreen tablet/laptop then you can capture digital signatures directly without the need for additional hardware. When prompted for a digital signature, you simply use your finger or a stylus to draw your signature. Simple and easy.
Our favorite and most highly recommended touchscreen device is the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 and above.
