Barcode inventory software offers an infinitely easier solution than manual tracking on an Excel spreadsheet. Because your inventory is where your profit lies, it’s simply too important to leave to chance. Assigning this task to an employee almost assures that you’ll be frustrated by errors, wasted time and productivity, and items that mysteriously fall through the cracks.
Maintaining your inventory at ideal levels requires careful attention to detail and a keen knowledge of factors that can impact your needs; for example, you might require seasonal adjustments in inventory. Striking that perfect balance between sold out and overstocked is critically important for your bottom line.
“Barcode inventory software vastly simplifies the process of cataloging your inventory.”
Barcode inventory software vastly simplifies the process of cataloging your inventory, tracking values and determining quantities throughout all of your warehouse locations, so you can make better decisions about allocation and avoid having excess inventory sitting on your shelves, which ultimately either has to be marked down or even discarded. With most barcode inventory software, you’ve got to purchase a handheld barcode scanner.
Handheld barcode scanners are available in various styles, features, levels of sophistication and price points, ranging from less than $100 each to $800 or more. Scanners are corded or cordless (wireless), or you may choose a mobile computer, which offers a built-in PC and scanner all in one. Obviously, mobile computers are the most expensive option, but they do offer the convenience of a wireless device, along with a fully functional keyboard, better speed, built-in memory, and the ability to perform several functions at once. They’re also fairly rugged and can withstand exposure to the elements. If you’ve got a significant volume of inventory to scan, mobile computers are a better choice than a simple barcode scanner.
The next evolution in barcode inventory software, however, involves none of these handheld scanners.
