Barcode asset tracking – trends and future predictions
From the time of their invention in 1970’s, barcodes have evolved rapidly and taken over production processes. Today, almost every product in the market comes with a set of barcode label printed on it. This label helps in faster checkouts, simple and accurate record keeping and streamlined inventory control for retailers. The latest innovations in tracking technology include 2D barcode labels. As compared to 1D, 2D labels tend to store more information, which is a huge jump from 85 characters to 7000 characters. This enables companies to store detailed information regarding products all at one place. By doing this, organizations save themselves the hassle of accessing different forums for data records about a single product.
Barcode tracking has had a positive impact on the healthcare, education as well as the manufacturing sector. Users get a sense of control when they can look up additional information just by scanning the barcode with their smartphones or handheld scanners. This gives way to an improved experience which eliminates inefficiencies and raises productivity across all departments. Research suggests that the barcode tracking system will develop a much faster scanning system with the addition of an image scan as well! With all these high-tech innovations being integrated within the simple barcode, it is obvious that its use is bound to increase over the coming years. Continue reading
