Barcoding allows for automatic identification of an item. These
items could be cargo, raw materials, product serial numbers
or numbers of documents.
The bar code can be placed as a bar code label. With a bar code data-collection solution, capturing data is faster and more accurate, costs are lower, mistakes are minimized
and inventory is easily managed. Companies with integrated bar coding systems that enable users to scan bar codes rather than type numbers are commonly achieving more than 99% data accuracy.
This improved data accuracy, lower inventory levels, management and accessibility improvements along with reduced costs (both capital and operational) are the most common motivation
for implementing a bar code system.
While the time saved in data entry operations is easily recognized, the true benefits become apparent when bar coding capabilities are extended to other areas
of the organization, resulting in fully functional automation. A more efficient operation is realized as the automation greatly simplifies information collection, processing, and tracking.
