Motorola DS3508 barcode scanner
One of the largest wireless carriers in America required a revamp of all of their cellular towers and needed to begin scanning 2D barcodes in order to track all the equipment in each tower. The company’s main concern was to be able to parse the equipments’ serial numbers, which were encoded in different barcode formats by three different manufacturers. BarcodesInc provided them with over 400 Motorola DS3508 barcode scanners, custom configured for their application and ready to use out of the box. The company was so happy with their new solution, they have shown interest in two future orders of comparable magnitude.

Data Matrix barcodes were printed on each camera, so a good 2D barcode scanner was necessary. BarcodesInc hooked them up with Motorola DS6707 scanners which made it quick and easy to scan the information into their spreadsheet, complete with a date and time stamp of when the units were checked out and where they were going.

ID Cards Make Dreams Come True for Children in Las Vegas

Young people in Las Vegas were given a gift when the Dream Center began its ID card program seven months ago. They were given a sense of belonging.

The Dream Center is an outreach-driven church affiliated with the International Church of Las Vegas, dedicated to helping inner city families. “Our ministry provides hope by meeting both tangible and spiritual needs,” said David Hammonds Jr., Assistant Pastor responsible for oversight of children’s programs and outreach efforts. “We provide food, clothing, life rehabilitation, education, Biblical training and much more through our numerous ministries and outreach programs. We reach hundreds of hurting and needy children and adults across all races and cultures every week.”

In addition to regular Sunday services, the Dream Center provides multiple community programs, including a Thursday night dinner that feeds up to 300 homeless individuals. Located on the west side of the city, in an area most people choose to drive by, the Dream Center also ministers to about 300 at-risk children and teens through its Adopt-a-Block program. Children enrolled in the program receive a personal visit from a staff member at their home every week and are invited back to the Dream Center for Tuesday night programs.

“It takes a lot of work to stay connected to the kids and their families,” said Hammonds. When the Adopt-a-Block program began, there were approximately 20 participants, and administrators used a printed roster to take attendance. As new children joined the program, Dream Center administrators gathered information on the individuals. It wasn’t long before program acceptance exploded, and the number of participants went from 20 to 300, making the paper roster time-consuming and inefficient. “The issue for us was to get an accurate attendance for each service,” said Hammonds. “All of our students are bused to the building at much the same time. By the time we got to 300 kids, it was hard to keep track of everyone.”
