Hi Lisa,

We invested in a hoard of Nexus7 tablets so we could 1) use the camera for scanning barcodes and 2) use the browser to collect walk-ins and forgetful bookies via a short form.

This process works well, the main problem we had originally was the the vendor (Azorus) was not able to recommend a barcode app for us that would do the job, so we had to research that ourselves, eventually finding one that covered everything e.g. bulk scanning, CSV download and unlimited scans. It's a flooded market.

We don't use an Open Day app ourselves, but I know Loughborough have one (or did last year). Looked pretty good, but then you've got to question the value, what is the right balance between not giving enough information in advance versus over-engineering the solution.

Hope this helps!
