What is the First Product to Ever Have a Barcode?

Posted January 10, 2019

Juicy-Fruit-gumOn the episode of Ellen’s Games of Game last night, she asked a question about what is the first product to be have a barcode? Good question!

In the summer of 1974, a supermarket located in Troy, Ohio, scanned it’s very first UPC barcoded product, Wrigley’s Chewing Gum. A barcode that can be printed on something as small as a pack of chewing gum. This develops a long interesting history that is constantly evolving; we are still discovering ways to put more information into these machine read-able barcodes.

Present day, we have QR codes to store large amounts of information that can be unlocked and scanned through smart phones. Further, RFID technology allows there to be a chip embedded within a barcode and with single motion, a reader can read and record its presence.

Big company such as Amazon relies heavily on barcodes to keep track of their products by scanning them when its at a packaging point. With the help of a barcoding system the whole supply chain can be managed efficiently and workers can be more productive. A simple scan can avoid human error, save more time, and be able to trace products going in and out of your facility.

Barcodes are truly fascinating, it created a whole new way to track your products and do business efficiently. Find out how to barcode your products today! Contact us at Barcodes and we will help you find a solution that best fits your needs.

Global Technology Systems Takes the Lead for Earth Day: A Free Recycling Program

Posted April 19, 2018

Today, April 22, is Earth day and it’s time to return the love to the planet we all call home. Thanks to Global Technology Systems (GTS) they will be providing a Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling program.

You may be asking yourself why do I need to recycle my batteries? Well, Lithium-Ion batteries consist primarily of chemicals and metals which in turn allow the battery to hold a long charge and remain light at the same time. These chemicals and metals consist of lithium, cobalt, and other materials that can be extremely harmful to the environment we live in. The improper disposal of these batteries as trash leads to water contamination, soil contamination, and among other things negative environmental/health outcomes.

The Recycling Process:

  • GTS will provide customers involved in the program with free battery recycling boxes at each enrolled facility.
  • Once the battery recycling box is filled, simply call the toll-free phone number on the box and it will be picked-up and properly disposed of by a GTS-certified recycling firm.
  • Once a recycling box has been provided to the recycling firm another recycling box will be provided to continue this free service.

Help make our Earth a better place to live, recycle the batteries that help power all of your mobile operations.

For more information on how to start recycling those Lithium-Ion Batteries please Contact Us!
