What Can Bar Code Technology Do For Your Business?
The products and services connected with the general term of “bar coding” supplement and enhance existing critical business systems—systems such as SAP, Oracle, JDE, BAHN, MAS, QuickBooks and other enterprise resource systems for accounting and manufacturing.
Bar coding equipment and systems can extend the functionality and improve the operations of accounting software and manufacturing processes, but they cannot operate independently. A fully-functional bar coding solution must integrate with your back-end business system in order to provide the full benefit from the additional data they capture.
Bar code systems combine bar codes (typically labels or tags), scanners (or readers), and software:
- Bar codes are used to identify an item, location, shipment, work order, employee, etc.
- Scanners (or readers) are used to read the data electronically, faster and with fewer errors than a human
- Software is used to verify the correct data, log the activity, direct user actions and gain real-time access to the activity data
Bar coding equipment can be added to virtually any process, in any industry, and to any software. Because of such flexibility, the worldwide adoption and demand continues to grow, even during recessions. Adding a data collection and management solution that includes bar coding can help to reduce operating expenses, frequently with returns on investments in just 6 months.
