Traker Systems’ barcode scanning software provides the option of bar coding and scanning for all of our products. Below are three primary scanners we currently utilize in the batch environment.

Barcode tracking software provides enormous benefits for just about any business. With a bar code data collection solution, capturing data is faster and more accurate, costs are lower, mistakes are minimized, and managing inventory is much easier. The following are some of the benefits of bar code data entry.

  • Fast and Reliable Data Collection
  • Faster Data Entry: A bar code scanner typically may record data five to seven times as fast as a skilled typist may.
  • Better Accuracy: Keyboard data entry creates an average of one error in 300 keystrokes. Bar code data entry has an error rate of about 1 in 3 million.

Reduce Costs with Barcoding Software

Labor Costs This is the most obvious benefit of bar code data collection. In many cases, this cost savings pays for the entire data collection system. Don’t put all of your attention on this benefit, however. Even though this is the most apparent benefit of barcode scanning software, it is often overshadowed by even greater savings from other areas.

Revenue Losses Barcode tracking software helps to minimize data collection errors; this benefit often surpasses the saving of labor costs. You know that if you make a significant error on an invoice in the customer’s favor, you will never hear about it again. However, if the error is in your favor, you will hear about it immediately. In most companies, it doesn’t take many errors to amount to a great deal of lost revenue.

Barcode Scanning Software Improves Management

Better Decision Making With barcoding software you may tell not only what the customers are buying, but when they are buying it and in what combinations. This may improve business management by suggesting better locations for goods in the store and identifying advertising targets.

Faster Access to Information This benefit goes hand in hand with better decision making. With better information, you may gain opportunities and get the jump on competition.

Examples of How Bar Codes are Used The following are just a few of the many ways bar codes are being used to improve the profitability and efficiency of a variety of company types.

Cost Savings This is the most obvious benefit. A medium to large store may save enough checker time to significantly reduce payroll. You also save direct labor costs through less time spent taking inventories and ordering product.

Customer Satisfaction A proper bar code system will speed customer checkout. This will improve customer satisfaction enough to directly increase revenue over time.

Reduced Inventory Costs Immediate access to inventory information on a real-time basis may be used to reduce inventory levels. This will reduce costs for a company in a number of ways, including interest, labor for handling excess inventory, and facility overhead.

The data Data from portable scanners may be uploaded to a central computer system at regular intervals or portables may update inventory in real-time, depending on the system you choose. Barcode tracking and inventory control provides accurate, real-time inventory updates. This allows a company the opportunity to reduce stock levels and thereby reduce carrying costs. It also reduces the time taken to collect data for purposes such as annual inventories. With improved efficiency, operating costs are lower.

Packaging For packaging, a bar code printer is used to generate a label to identify part numbers, serial numbers, and shipping information. This labeling may be used to automatically sort packages for shipment, automate receiving, and greatly enhance package tracking.

These are just a few examples to get you started thinking about what you may do with bar codes. Barcode scanning software routinely save companies money while improving quality, on-time performance, and other key business factors
