Posted March 9, 2016

Seagull BarTender Professional Barcode SoftwareFrom WIP (work in progress) to the food and pharmaceutical industries, tracking items with unique serialized barcode labels is necessary to accurately and easily locate products in cases of a recall, customer alerts, expiration management, and counterfeit prevention.

One of the many advantages of Seagull Scientific’s BarTender label software is fully integrated serialization capabilities.

4 Signs Your Warehouse Needs a Barcoding System

Posted February 29, 2016

warehouse-lean-manufacturing-principles2Picture this…Employees are wandering the aisles of your warehouse, trying to find an inventory item to complete a shipment that must go out today. Unfortunately, the item appears to be either out of stock or has been placed in the wrong section of your facility. The problem is your manual records are incorrect so you have no way of knowing.

The bottom line…Quickly locating and picking inventory is a challenge. And your current equipment and processes are not helping matters.

If this sounds all too familiar, you are not alone. In fact, a recent research study has shown that inefficient workflows cost companies nearly 3,000 productive hours and $390,000 in mispicks every year. That’s a lot of time and money down the proverbial drain.

In addition, improper warehouse management means you could be missing valuable business insights, which could help you make more informed decisions to improve the overall health of your company and avoid the above scenario.

That’s where a barcoding system comes in; it empowers you to put away the pencil and paper and forget about spreadsheets. A barcoding system is a powerful tool that reduces the piles of paperwork, decreases user error and provides critical information in real time. And it doesn’t matter whether you are a small single-store business with a warehouse in the back or a large manufacturer with several distribution centers barcoding fills in accuracy gaps that can significantly improve inventory control.

Not convinced? Your operations might be experiencing the following challenges that a barcoding system can solve:

Posted February 15, 2016

Datalogic Skorpio X3 Mobile ComputerOverview
UK Fashion Retailer SuperGroup Plc offers quality clothing and accessories through e-commerce, a multi-channel network of stores and wholesale operations. In 2003, the company owner joined forces with a UK designer to develop and create a new in-house brand known as Superdry. This brand offers a wide range of clothing, bags and accessories. It has a wide appeal, capturing elements of “urban” and “street wear” designs with subtle combinations of vintage Americana, Japanese imagery and British tailoring, all with strong attention to detail. 135 UK and European stores, as well as celebrity publicity from David Beckham and Zac Efron, has driven Superdry to become an internationally acclaimed fashion brand sold in over 100 countries.
