Barcode Technology

Barcode technology uses coded patterns, often parallel lines, to represent and quickly identify items, facilitating efficient tracking and data capture.

Whether you need barcode scanning on the manufacturing production line, in the aisles of your warehouse, at the patient bedside, or at your retail POS, we have a scanner for your application.
Whether you need an industrial barcode printer for the manufacturing production line, a mobile printer in the aisles of your warehouse, or a desktop printer at your retail point of sales, we have a printer that’s right for you.
Capture real-time data and increase efficiency, productivity, and customer service levels, inside the four walls or out in the field, with mobile computers.
Identify and correct barcode issues before they become major problems. Barcode verifiers are common in industries that constantly need to meet compliance standards and ensure products are traceable throughout the supply chain.
We provide quality, reliable barcode, RFID, and card supplies to meet the demands of your application. Carefully selected, they deliver high print quality, durability, and read performance. Talk to us about the labels and media specifications you need and we’ll find a solution that fits your application.
Take auto-ID to the next level with Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), which uses tags, readers, and antennas, to transfer data automatically and uniquely identify and track inventory and assets.

Streamline Business Processes with a Barcoding System

Barcode technology is a method of encoding and representing data in the form of a series of parallel lines or bars, along with accompanying numbers or characters. It allows for quick and accurate retrieval of information about products or items, enabling businesses to automate processes, reduce errors, and improve efficiency. Barcodes are widely used for various purposes, such as product identification, inventory management, asset tracking, point-of-sale transactions, and enhanced data accuracy.
  • Accuracy in Data Entry: Significantly reduce human errors associated with manual data entry. Scanning barcodes is faster and more accurate than traditional methods, minimizing the risk of mistakes in recording and processing information.
  • Increased Efficiency: Provide a quicker and more efficient way to input, retrieve, and track data fro tasks such as inventory management, order processing, and asset tracking.
  • Real-time Visibility: Real-time visibility into inventory levels, shipments, and asset locations enables better decision-making, reduces delays, and improves responsiveness to changing demands.
  • Enhanced Traceability: Facilitate precise traceability of products and assets throughout the supply chain.
  • Reduced Costs: Reduced errors in inventory management lead to lower carrying costs, and streamlined processes contribute to operational cost reductions.
  • Data Collection for Analytics: Generate valuable data that can be analyzed to gain insights into operational trends, customer preferences, and inventory movements.
