How important should contactless service be for your restaurant?

Posted May 12, 2021

Even after the COVID-19 crisis, nearly 40%[1] of customers still plan to use contactless services since they are one of the most convenient ways to shop. As a result, quick-service-restaurants (QSRs) are adapting at an accelerated pace to combine safety and ease in today’s food service. To meet new demands for seamless touch-free dining, QSRs have been encouraged to implement:

  • Self-service kiosks – By empowering customers to build and pay for their own orders, self-service kiosks can also diminish wait times while freeing up team members to focus on other tasks.
  • Efficient curbside pickup – Six out of ten[2] patrons plan on continuing to use curbside pickup even after restaurants re-open for dine-in. This means teams must be able to communicate seamlessly amongst each other and with the customer to ensure food quality fits within the customer’s schedule.
  • Accelerated drive-thru lanes – 42%[3] of customers view drive-thrus as more sanitary than alternative pickup options, yet longer lines often push patrons away. Consequently, QSRs are investing in faster connectivity and data processing to speed up drive thru lanes for a better customer experience.

See how Barcodes, Inc. maximizes these and more in our video:

Why Maximize Visibility in your Work-In-Progress Inventory?

Posted February 4, 2021

When creating lean operations, manufacturing plants often struggle with managing, incoming materials for future orders, known as work-in-progress (WIP) inventory. If left unchecked, unidentified WIP inventory can increase operational costs by at least 20%[1] while ultimately leading to:

  • Increased labor and downtime costs
  • Dwindling storage space
  • Difficulty tracking assembled orders
  • Missed opportunities as decision must be based on available space instead of demand
Better identification equals better visibility

To ascertain material identification for WIP inventory, Barcodes, Inc. recommends modernizing your labeling system. Industrial printers such as Zebra’s ZT610 ensure barcode legibility for both barcode labels and RFID tags, so your team can accurately identify materials as they move throughout the production floor.

By accelerating printing speeds, industrial printers empower teams to quickly tag incoming materials, securing proper storage in the correct location before materials leave the receiving dock. Furthermore, high-resolution barcodes facilitate more successful first-time scans, simplifying your inventory management process as materials move down the supply chain.

However, while industrial printers offer a good place to start enhancing operations, there are many more ways to continue eliminating inefficiency. As a Zebra Premier Business Partner, Barcodes, Inc. works closely alongside your team to design, deploy and support enterprise-grade hardware into your operations. Contact us today to see how you can pair printers like the ZT610 to scanners, mobile computers, and consumables to expand inventory visibility.

What to Expect from Your Healthcare-Grade Labels

Posted July 27, 2020

Errors and healthcare simply don’t mix, yet studies suggest that more than half[1] of lab errors occur as a result of improper labeling. From wasted medical supplies to fatal mistakes, improper healthcare labeling damages a hospital’s operations from the inside out. To eliminate unnecessary risks, we recommend reviewing label performance by certifying your printing supplies fulfill the following expectations:

  • Long-lasting adhesive strength – Your labels carry vital information wherever they go, which means that a missing label can stop your workflow and implicate patient care.
  • Temperature endurance – Because medical assets and medications can transition between drastic temperatures throughout the day, labels should be fitted to endure constant temperature swings in order to preserve identification.
  • Crisp legibility regardless size – From large operating machinery to small test tubes, every healthcare asset requires reliable identification. Simplify data capture with smear-resistant barcodes that fit your custom label.
  • Writable surface – Since caregivers will most likely need to write on your labels, minimize time spent looking for appropriate pens and integrate writable surfaces into your labeling solution.
  • Chemical resistance – Last but not least, healthcare labels should be able to endure abrasive and/or corrosive chemicals as well as disinfectants in order to protect information.

Using Zebra Certified Labels, Barcodes Inc. creates scalable and cost-effective labeling solutions built for healthcare. Plus, count on automatic restocking and replenishment for maximum uptime. As experts in efficient tracking and traceability systems, we build custom solutions that meet your application requirements without draining your budget, effectively cutting errors and confusing workflows.

See how in our video:
