Three Reasons Your Operations Need Enhanced Hands-free Mobility

Posted June 30, 2020

Within the last five years, markets worldwide have shifted to accommodate wave after wave of unprecedented changes. From the rise of online retail to new delivery methods, customer expectations have changed dramatically as technology continues to advance. Studies show that most consumers today admit to having higher expectations from businesses, including faster delivery, better order accuracy, and real-time communication and tracking. As a result, enhanced mobility solutions such as Hands-Free Technology [1] can help you keep up with competition while also:

  1. Valuing current employees – Hands-free technology can maximize productivity by 15% without demanding more from your workforce. Plus, Barcodes, Inc. works with strong yet lightweight technology that adapts to each individual worker.
  2. Eliminating costly bottlenecks – Stalled productivity and downtime can drain money and time best suited for other tasks. By keeping all your crucial devices functional and at hand, your workforce bypasses long travel times and bottlenecks throughout the warehouse.
  3. Improving customer experience – More and more customers expect fast to same-day delivery with little to no errors. Consequently, maximized mobility can also maximize your order throughput.

Stay on the move with Hands Free Technology

Your Pharmacy Doesn’t Have time for “Complicated”

Posted June 29, 2020

2015 broke the record for most drugs approved by the FDA, releasing as many as 45[1] new drugs into the public market. In addition to new products, pharmacies would also have to adapt to new pricing, storage requirements, and government compliance measures to accommodate change. With new approvals comes the new need for corrected pharmacy tracking, a system that can ultimately dictate your customers’ experience -and most importantly- their health. 

Complicated tracking equals complicated care

Without proper visibility, your operations are exposed to misidentification risks, which can lead to detrimental health risks and/or financial loss. To uphold government and service standards, pharmacy tracking and traceability systems must focus on accuracy and adaptability as new changes can come at any moment. Equipped with both intelligent software and Zebra-powered hardware, Barcodes, Inc. streamlines adaptable accuracy into your workforce. See how in our video:

Faster printing and labeling gives your pharmacy staff the upper hand to quickly adapt to new changes without losing visibility or productivity. Moreover, since it’s built with Zebra’s ZD420-HC printer, custom labels, and readily available TrueSupport, Barcodes, Inc.’s pharmacy tracking solutions ultimately integrate:

  • Secured documentation
  • Affordable digitization
  • Increased customer satisfaction
  • Easier onboarding for new employees

Barcodes, Inc., Janam, and Unitech Donates for Hurricane Relief

Posted November 30, 2017

1.0

In late August, Hurricane Harvey made landfall in the Southeast coast of the US and the Caribbean. A lot of people were affected by the wind, flood, and the destruction that it had caused. Disaster victims were left without homes and power.

Barcodes, Inc. worked on a few office fundraisers, including a coin drive and additional monetary donations, in order to help the people that were affected by the devastations. In addition to monetary contributions, our employees also contributed to the food and blood drive to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey and Irma.

We are happy to announce that Barcodes, Inc. has raised $1000. We would also like to issue a big thank you to our partners, Janam (provider of rugged handheld mobile devices) and Unitech (provider of barcode scanners and mobility) who matched our donations, which brought us to a total of $3,000 raised and donated to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief. Red Cross will use donor dollars to provide meals, shelters, and health services for individuals and families affected by the hurricanes.

We hope that this will help our friends in need at this time and we will continue our efforts in our fundraising activities to do more and help others in need.

Barcodes Inc Lends A Hand At The Greater Chicago Food Depository

Posted March 18, 2016

GCFD 1The Greater Chicago Food Depository is a nonprofit food distribution and training center that provides food for hungry people while striving to end hunger in our local communities. The depository makes a daily impact across Cook County with a network of 650 pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, mobile programs, children’s programs, older adult programs and innovative responses that address the root causes of hunger.

Barcodes Inc recently came out to the GCFD warehouse to lend a helping hand with their food repacking. Much of the donations that come into the depository are in large palette-sized containers that need to be repacked into smaller boxes to be easily distributed to food pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters throughout Cook County.

During the few hours spent there, the Barcodes Inc group was able to repack 11,650 lbs of cabbage for easy delivery to our communities.

You can find more information on how to volunteer to help stamp our hunger in the Chicagoland area at the GCFD website.
