The right scanning solution for your application in barcode capture

Using the barcode scanner to create a transparent inventory

The functionality of a barcode scanner is quite simple. He picks up the information behind a specially coded barcode. The bar code is coded once at the beginning of the life cycle of a product. Software creates a barcode / barcode from the unique product information. This is then printed on a label and affixed to the product as an ID. Thus, the first step to transparency of the inventory has been made.

Ideally, the barcode will be placed exactly when the product is produced. To track this process completely, those in charge of warehousing receive a barcode scanner. For example, you can find this in the hardware store to be able to scan larger components more easily at the checkout area. The barcode is scanned here for the last time and thus internally labeled with the label “sold”. On the other hand, there is now the variant of a scanner in which the customer scans his products at self-scan cash registers and then pays. By scanning, for example, it can also be ensured that a message is sent when the goods in this product group come to an end, or that an automated order is sent. Between the beginning of the product life with a barcode and the end with the sale of the product, there are many logistical paths that are covered. The barcode is recorded at each important logistics station with a barcode scanner to keep the flow of goods transparent. Thus, goods leaving a warehouse or arriving at another warehouse are scanned with the barcode scanner. This documents where the product is located.

Another example from practice:

You order a product online. Now you will receive information about the location or status of the product at regular intervals.

The product was made ready for dispatch.
✓The product has been handed over to the postal service provider.
✓The product is in delivery mode.
✓The product has been delivered.

Behind each of these messages is not a message from the one who brought the product to the next level of logistics, but: a barcode. Every time a barcode scanner scans the product, usually taking it a step further, it sends a message to the customer – automated and so that no additional work is required. So this not only helps to document the way of the goods, but also to ensure an efficient customer service.
