Q: Can I use my device's camera to scan badges or do I have to have a scanner?
A: Yes, both the iOS/Android app support scanning badges (see device requirements below) with the device's camera.
Q: So if I have the latest version of Showlink for iOS or Android, do I need a scanner?
A: Since versions 5.0 and later can scan all standard barcode types using the device's build-in camera on your mobile device, the Bluetooth scanner is optional. Users may still want to use a scanner. Some users find that it is easier to use scanner with a tablet, and/or they may want to leave the device mounting in a stand, etc.

Q: Can I use any scanner with the iOS/Android app?

Q: Does ShowLink work at every show?
A: ShowLink can read barcodes from the attendee’s badge provided they contain the necessary data. For a list of shows that have used compatible badges in the past, please click here http://sageworld.com/supplier/showlink-tradeshows.php.
Q: Can I use ShowLink on multiple devices in my booth?
A: Absolutely. ShowLink works great with multiple scanning devices. When scanning from multiple devices, all of your leads will be aggregated into one list automatically for reporting. Each device needs its own ShowLink device license (and scanner if you are using scanners). So you will just need to purchase as many licenses and scanners as you need.
