1. Improved Data Accuracy
Data hygiene is the single most common reason companies list for implementing a barcode system. This is because quality, coherent data is most often the backbone of operations and sales. Data entry enables a company to produce accurate reports and forecasts ba sed on informed analysis and actionable conclusions. Considering the critical role data plays in a companiesí operations, it is no wonder that there is little margin for error.

Companies with integrated bar coding solutions, such as CheckMate AIDC software, are commonly achieving 99% data accuracy by enabling users to scan bar codes rather than manually input numbers. For many organizations, such as hospitals, crime labs, and manufacturing companies, poor data hygiene can be catastrophic. Bar coding is the best tool for ensuring credible data and reducing the impact of human error.

2. Operational Efficiency
Auto-ID and bar coding enables employees and companies to work faster, without sacrificing accuracy. This is especially true if factoring in the time it takes to correct errors. Also, by converting the physical world into data and me ta-data, companies can gain invaluable visibility and insight and into their organization.
Not only that, process automation allows data to be tracked in near real-time, further increasing efficiency. Imagine a company that enables management to make decisions ba sed on current data and empowers employees to action. While the time saved by automating processes is easily recognized, the true impacts of your improvements emerge when bar coding is extended to other areas of the organization.

3. Consistency and Quality Control
Bar coding, particularly in fast-paced work environments, enables consistent operational processes for enhanced product quality. It does so by automating data management functions and eliminating bottlenecks. For example, Auto-ID systems usually operate at a defined pace, either self-determined by the printerís maximum speed or triggered by the action of another device.

For instance, in an assembly line environment, what was once slowed by manual data entry, now progresses smoothly by using a 170PAX4 with Zebrali nk print engine in combination with an automated labeling machine (such as the one featured below). Products can also run under fixed scanners which programmatically and instantaneously record and input data the moment a transaction occurs. In addition, employing standardized compliance labeling ensures that barcode information is universally understood and establishes effortless product traceability.

4. Improved Inventory and Asset Management
Bar coding can help your company efficiently manage resources. Companies routinely come to us for help in employing barcode tracking for fixed assets such as manufacturing equipment, computers, furniture, and other capital assets. They want to capture and track me ta-data and inventory for tax purposes. This allows businesses to know the number of each item on hand and its current market value less depreciation. For maintenance and inventory purposes, companies are now asking to track me ta-data such as the last known condition, color, features, and designated user.
We have even had libraries place bar codes on books to track borrowing history. Similarly, public transportation authorities, rental car companies and the U.S. Department of Defense have begun utilizing bar codes to track detailed maintenance records for each vehicle. Yet one of the largest markets that is realizing the most ROI from our solutions is manufacturing.
Manufacturing and fabrication companies have come to us for custom designed solutions to track resource inventory and product assembly from start to finish. For example, companies are completing the manufacturing process by labeling finished goods, containers or pallets with detailed information about the product. These labels are a combination of 2D bar-coded data and human readable text. Using our software, their employees are able to scan the label and access exact inventory in real time, as well as the precise date and time that any product left the warehouse.
