6 Key Performance Indicators Every Small and Medium Business Should Track

Posted April 26, 2021

No matter the operation’s size, every business strives for better profitability and customer retention. To do so, companies often track several key performance indicators (KPIs) to monitor and forecast business growth. While there are many viable KPIs to track, small and growing businesses are often encouraged to monitor the following indicators:

  1. Order accuracy rates address how often orders are shipped with the correct products to the correct customer within the correct allotted time.
  2. Inventory turnover rates can record the fluctuating demands for any particular product while assessing your ability to move goods down the supply chain.
  3. Gross profit margins provide a clear picture of final profits after operational expenses such as labor, shipping, and the like are paid off.
  4. Cash flow forecast assists small businesses in predicting the costs of high demand, so they can make adjustments accordingly before profits are hindered.
  5. Funnel drop-off rates allow you to see how many potential customers abandon purchases to optimize business tactics.
  6. Market share clearly depicts how your business compares to competitors by measuring company sales with total industry purchases.

To track multiple KPIs in real-time without costly errors, Barcodes, Inc. recommends simplified and scalable digitization

How to Maximize Visibility and Minimize Costs at the Same Time

Posted March 25, 2021


Inventory management is a prominent struggle for most businesses, especially small and growing warehouses. Inconsistent stock counts can severely impact customer loyalty as they lead to surprise out-of-stocks, shipping delays, and misplaced products within the warehouse. Since the effects of improper inventory management can be detrimental, enhancing operational visibility is key to remaining competitive in today’s high-demand markets. To do so, businesses have sought to eliminate:

  • Paper-based systems – Small data entry errors can yield enormous costly consequences over time.
  • Disparate spreadsheets – Although digital spreadsheets are less likely to contain errors compared to paper-based systems, disparate logs can cause more confusion in the future as employees must navigate through several databases to find needed information.

As a Zebra Premier Solutions Partner, Barcodes, Inc. simplifies inventory management for small and growing businesses with Zebra’s adaptable mobile computers.

Increasing Visibility With Zebra Mobile Computers

Reduce the number of deployed devices and increase digital visibility when you optimize your inventory management system with Zebra. No matter which device you choose to integrate, Barcodes, Inc. closely assists you in connecting your workflows on a digitized platform, enabling:

How to Create a Printing Solution That Grows With Your Business

Posted March 16, 2021


Compared to other prominent warehouse tools like mobile computers and scanners, labeling systems are relatively low-cost, yet they play a vital role in securing inventory accuracy for proper stock counts. As supply chains become more fast-paced, growing businesses may require a scalable and easy-to-use identification solution to:

  • Eliminate manual data entry
  • Prevent downtime from printer jams
  • Maximize printhead lifespan
  • Shave off wait times from printing stations

To remain competitive in today’s demanding market, printing and labeling solutions must be adaptable, scalable, and cost-effective, much like Zebra’s Warehouse Printers featured in our video below:

Assessing Your Printing Solution

When evaluating your options, Barcodes, Inc. recommends that you consider the following questions:

1. Can printers handle sudden high printing volumes?

As seen in previous years, order demand can change drastically in a matter of days, automatically ruling out consumer-grade printers as an optimal choice. Enterprise-grade printers such as Zebra’s barcode label printers come in varying sizes to fit different workspaces while harnessing durable printheads, intelligent printing software, and trusted security to prevent breakdowns and cyberthreats during peak seasons. The result is a printing solution that can readily handle greater demand without compromising uptime.

2. Can printers be mobilized?

While industrial and desktop printers can successfully deliver needed labels, they may not be the best mobility choice. Past studies have shown mobile printers to boost processing time by as much as 62% while reducing picking times by almost 50%. This frees up your staff to accomplish other important tasks faster while increasing printer availability without more wait times.

3. Which labeling supplies will I use?

Lastly, efficient printing systems heavily depend on your chosen consumables since they directly impact your hardware’s printhead. Inferior consumables can scratch printheads over time, leading to jams and downtime. On the flipside, smoother quality thermal ribbons protect printheads while retaining legibility in varying conditions, ultimately decreasing operational costs.    

As leaders in scalable optimization for big and growing businesses alike, Barcodes, Inc. is ready to assist you in navigating through these questions to create a tailored printing solution that matches your needs. Contact us today to see how you can begin your solution design for seamless deployment and maintenance.
