Big Benefits from a Little Barcode

barcodeHow can one little barcode give you big benefits? It’s easy when you think about it. That tiny little strip of lines and letters has revolutionized warehouse automation to make it easier to keep accurate counts and update information throughout your organization. Here are just a few big benefits from that tiny strip on the side of your packages and bins.

Benefits of barcodes:

  1. Faster data entry: No matter how fast you can type, a barcode is still faster. Swipe the scanner and you’re done. Not only is the information entered more quickly, but it’s entered with fewer mistakes. That’s a double win in our book!
  2. Easy implementation: No special training is required to help your team set up and use barcodes. Once your system is set up, it takes about a half an hour or less to teach people how to scan properly. That’s it. The rest of your team will probably learn the system quickly too thanks to its intuitive design.
  3. Improved supply chain management: The more accurately you can manage your inventory, the better your cash flow. Supply chain management is a big part of inventory management. With the accurate data that you get from barcodes and automation, you can manage all of the components of your supply chain more tightly, resulting in cost-savings and greater efficiencies.
