Barcode labels for countless applications

Barcode technology has moved on leaps and bounds over the last few decades. From their use on retail packaging to their use as an asset marking technology, it’s clear that barcodes are here to stay.

If you regularly go shopping you’ll recognise that barcodes are attached to every product you buy. They are an easy way to identify individual items and can be used effortlessly when stock taking or when pricing items.

Barcodes for identification purposes

Barcodes can be used quite effectively when goods or products need to be identified. Barcode labels can be affixed to every product and information about these products and the unique barcode identifier code can be stored on a computer. The software installed on the computer will let you scan the barcode on the product and information about the item can be instantly retrieved. This way barcodes can be used to identify products and can be used for pricing products.

Barcode labels for stocktaking

If you have a large number of items in stock it can be a good idea to do a stock take once in a while to check the quantity and condition of these items. And the easiest way of doing this is by using barcode labels. If each item has a barcode label attached all you have to do is scan the barcode of each item and the item will be logged on a computer system. This is a really quick process and one which if done manually would take a great deal of time.
