The Benefits of Barcode Scanning
As our name suggests, here at Barcoding, Inc. we believe in the many benefits of the barcode. With scanning, data tracking, inventory, and much more, one little barcode can make a big difference in your supply chain, and ultimately save you time and money.
In a recent article, Barcoding, Inc. Business Development Manager Noel McKeon spoke with Blue Link about some of the ways that barcode scanning can make your business more efficient, accurate and connected.
A Cost Effective Solution
Firstly, barcode scanning is a cost-efficient solution that can work with any budget. Though in the past it was much more expensive to incorporate new systems, barcode scanning is now oftentimes built-in to ERP solutions and mobile devices OS. As Noel notes, “It’s often simply a matter of selecting the right equipment to support the operating environment and some minor configuration tweaks to existing software and a company can be leveraging barcode scanning.”
We are a certified hardware partner for Blue Link’s Barcode Scanning and Mobile Picking iOS app. Barcoding, Inc. hardware pairs perfectly with Blue Link’s barcode scanning app, allowing your warehouse staff to scan and pick barcodes from the warehouse floor, simplifying the receiving, put-away, picking, packing and shipping of inventory.
Barcode scanning can reduce overall costs once the upfront investment has been made. By decreasing errors with automation, you save yourself the extra cost associated with error. Plus, scanning can limit the amount of excess inventory by tracking data precisely, allowing you to avoid over-ordering.
Finally, barcode scanning can also automate systems and therefore increase efficiency. All-in-one systems streamline your processes.
Noel explains that “barcode scanning offers speed, accuracy, and data validation which helps a warehouse environment to ensure greater control and accuracy over the inventory data that the warehouse is operating against. When combined with the right software system, barcode scanning can help ensure that the warehouse is picking orders faster and more accurately, which increases customer satisfaction.”
