One of the many benefits companies enjoy after upgrading their inventory process to a more automated system is the significant amount of time saved.
Scout has even made a YouTube video where you can watch this benefit in action. Check it out here.
That video shows that by utilizing barcode scanning the days of ahving to check everything off for tracking purposes are long gone. Items are simply scanned and immediately go into the system. It isn’t just warehouses that are able to enjoy this benefit from upgrading to a barcoded system. A couple of professors at a university in Louisiana are doing something simliar with its “inventory.”
According to this article by Alex Ward in the school’s newspaper two assistant economic professors have begun to use a barcode scanner to keep track of class attendance. The article quotes a student that states how much time is saved as names are no longer called out at the beginning of class. These profsesors no longer have to check off on their sheets either.
