Overview

Implementing a bar code system in one’s facility offers tremendous advantages when coupled with the appropriate computer hardware and software of an external database. The most compelling advantages of bar-coding and automatic data collection are:

Accuracy

Bar coding increases accuracy by reducing the likelihood of human errors from Manual entry or miscommunication from misread or mislabeled items.

Ease-of-Use

Bar codes are easy-to-use provided the appropriate hardware and software aspects are in place to maximize the process of automatic data collection.

Uniform Data Collection

Diverse compliance standards and standardized bar code symboligies ensures that bar code information is captured and relayed in a fashion that is universally understood and accepted.

Improved Productivity

Bar codes improve productivity in that many manual activities and tasks become automated enabling personnel resources to be utilized in other ways to increase the efficiencies of scale within an organization. Bar coding further enables manufacturing processes to be monitored and tracked more closely to improve the company’s overall quality standards.

Increased Profitability

The increased efficiencies (e.g. improved workflows, reduction in error rates and resultant happier customers) that bar-coding promotes enables companies to save costs and substantially improve their bottom line.

The return on investment for an automated data collection system is typically one year, and often substantially less
