As far as device requirements, we don't have a specific make/model of barcode scanner that we recommend, but based on feedback from our departments, they suggest buying one that can link either via bluetooth or cable to a phone / tablet (rather than having to cart around a computer). There are also third-party apps that incorporate scanners on a users' phone or tablet, but we find that those don't work well when trying to log multiple items - since you have to click into the barcode, scan it, return to the page, click into the barcode again, etc. for each piece of equipment you're checking.
