Sometimes barcodes are overlooked as a proven method for cutting costs and saving time, as this is a valuable and practical choice for businesses that are seeking to improve efficiency and reduce overhead, as barcodes are both reliable and cost effective. Barcodes can totally eliminate the possibility of human error, as the occurrence of errors for manually entered data is significantly higher than that of barcodes, and a barcode scan is fast and reliable and takes much less time than having to enter data by hand. This is one of the most beneficial reasons for your business to invest in a barcode inventory system. Scout, Inc. offers this type of system through our topShelf software that can be linked to your smartphone, tablet or barcode scanner, which can save you time and money.
Using a barcode inventory system can significantly reduce your employee training time because it literally takes only minutes to become familiar with the hand-held scanner for reading barcodes. This also allows your employees to no longer have to familiarize themselves with an entire inventory or pricing procedures. Another great benefit is the fact that you will no longer have to pay for advanced training to your new employees, and you will also not have to compensate your existing staff in the training process, as this is virtually eliminated. In addition, barcodes are extremely affordable to design and print, as they usually cost just pennies, regardless of their purpose, or where they will become attached to.
Barcodes are also extremely versatile and they can be used for any kind of necessary data collection, including pricing and inventory information. Because barcodes can be attached to almost any type of surface, they can be used to track not only the products themselves, but they can also track outgoing shipments and even equipment. A well-designed barcode inventory system provides better data, since one barcode can be used for inventory and for pricing information, it can be quickly utilized to be able to obtain data on both. Barcodes can also be easily customized to contain other relevant information as needed. Scout, Inc. will happily demonstrate all of these valuable features that our topShelf software can offer you.
Since barcodes make it possible to track inventory so precisely, inventory control improves, which allows inventory levels to become reduced, leading to lower overhead costs to your business. The location of equipment can also be tracked, thus reducing the time spent searching for it, and the money spent on replacing this equipment that was thought to have been lost. As barcodes are both inexpensive and user-friendly, they can provide a one-of-a-kind tool for tracking a variety of data, from pricing to inventory, which ultimately leads to less overhead.
