Barcode Scanning

Where would we be without barcodes? In today’s world, barcodes have become a fact of everyday life, enabling us to move through the check out quickly, track and trace a parcel and even capture patient’s health records in one 2D barcode. As barcode technology continues to advance, we can now use our smart phones to capture a barcode image in the weekend newspaper and activate a promotion!

Very simply put, barcodes are used as a simple method for product identification. Most recognisably, retail ready products at the point of sale use barcodes for unique product identification, while enabling an efficient method for a POS transaction. Manufacturers utilise barcodes for equipment serial numbers on electronic device’s to enable both consumer and manufacturer to track equipment warranty. In the manufacturing, distribution and logistics industries, the SSCC (serial shipping container code) barcode is used for traceability throughout the supply chain. Where there is a barcode used to identify a product, barcode scanners have been utilised at multiple points across the supply chain process, to track the product from manufacturer to the consumer. Barcode scanning increases efficiencies through data accuracy, therefore increasing overall productivity.

Typically, barcode scanners are categorised as either

  • Fixed barcode scanners or Keyboard scanner (referred to as tethered) 
  • Cordless barcode scanner (traditionally Bluetooth enabled)  
  • Mobile barcode scanner (portable barcode scanners)
