What are customers expecting from your home improvement store?

Posted June 1, 2021

After being confined to their homes for almost a full year, over half of American consumers undertook home improvement projects, leading to increased sales amounting to nearly $400 billion[1] in revenue in 2020. However, along with increased sales came new customer expectations, demanding more from home improvement stores. To keep up with current trends, retailers are expected to provide:

  • Stress-free tool rental – Reverse logistics has posed issues to many storefronts in the past, yet tool rentals have been expected to increase store revenue as customers are more likely to make additional purchases and refer retailers offering rentals. 
  • Faster customer assistance – While customers still expect amiable and personalized shopping experiences, the average expected wait time for customer service is around 2 minutes[2] or less.
  • Contactless curbside pickup – Following the COVID-19 outbreak, at least 59%[3] of consumers still plan to use contactless curbside pickup due to convenience and speed.

Build a shopping experience that exceeds expectations with Barcodes, Inc.

Product and price are no longer the only driving factors when it comes to retaining customer loyalty. That’s why Barcodes, Inc. partners with leading tech players like Zebra Technologies to optimize the entire shopping experience. Readapt home improvement storefronts to integrate…

3 Signs Your Operations Need to Speed Up Efficiency

Posted April 27, 2021

In the age of instant gratification, speed and accuracy are imperial to keeping businesses competitive. However, the rising number of omnichannel shoppers has posed a challenge to maximizing speed and accuracy at the same time. Inefficient speed can be harmful to supply chains, which is why Barcodes, Inc. helps small and growing businesses recognize the signs of ineffective acceleration through the following signs:

  1. More inaccurate orders are leaving the loading dock
  2. Workers are consistently overwhelmed
  3. Inventory counts are rarely accurate or updated

While there are multiple optimization routes businesses may take to streamline operations, Barcodes, Inc. recommends starting with simplified inventory labeling.

Accelerate productivity and maximize accuracy with Zebra Mobile Printers  

When inventory is readily and accurately identified, workers can quickly move products down the supply chain without wasting time. Zebra’s mobile printers go a step further by bringing optimized labeling to every point of the warehouse along with:

  • Dramatic reduction in travel and wait times since workers no longer need to walk over to centralized printing stations.
  • Long-lasting battery power that makes sure workers can count on continuous uptime throughout longer shifts.
  • Faster printing speeds and easy media loading to eliminate any technical complications and downtime.
  • Easy Bluetooth tap-to-pair for faster connectivity with your mobile devices.
  • Pre-installed PrintSecure that protects any sensitive data printed through your device by warding off unauthorized users.

In their commitment to strengthening small and growing businesses, Barcodes, Inc. strives to lower operational costs with future-forward solutions that grow with your operations.

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:

  • Streamlined data capture and processing – Capture barcodes and upload data immediately via your handheld computer to eliminate wait times for faster order fulfillment.
  • Greater data security – Not only does Zebra’s fortified Android facilitate onboarding, but it also protects your data with government-grade encryption and recurring security patches.
  • Sustained communication systems – Keep your teams unified with integrated push-to-talk capabilities along with long-range WiFi connectivity.
  • Maximized uptime from day one – Barcodes, Inc. works alongside your team from design, to deployment, to ongoing support to make sure your visibility solution remains functional whenever and wherever you need it.
  • Mobile device management – Barcodes, Inc. can help augment your IT staff by loading mobile device management software, pushing out updates and troubleshooting devices that are down in order to keep your mobile workforce fully operational.

7 Benefits of Adaptable & Accelerated Data Capture

Posted March 8, 2021


According to Zebra’s 2019 Warehousing Vision Study, over 70% of warehouses plan to integrate automated solutions into their operations by 2024. In order to remain competitive, businesses have turned to a plethora of different modernization strategies, yet not every solution is built to adapt to today’s dynamic demands. However, Barcodes, Inc. works with adaptable solutions that can grow to meet new demands without increasing costs. For example, Zebra’s DS457 Fixed Mount Scanner empowers teams to embrace automation without difficult learning curves or extraneous backend modifications.

See how in our Video:

With automated scanning, maximized accuracy is just the beginning

Is Zebra’s CS60 Companion Scanner Part of Your Next Store Modernization Strategy?

Posted February 16, 2021


With so many modernization options available today, it may be tempting to just jump into the latest and greatest device. However, the key to a successful modernization strategy lies in careful planning. That’s where versatile technologies such as Zebra’s CS60 barcode scanner can be quite useful as it provides an adaptable and scalable modernization option to overcome present and future retail challenges.

Who Can Benefit from the No-Compromise Companion Scanner?

While Zebra’s new CS60 companion scanner is set to enhance storefront workflows, there are a few questions you can ask yourself to assess implementation possibilities before integrating the next generation of mobile retail data capture:

1. Are you currently using multiple scanners for varying scanning needs?

Different tasks may require different scanning capabilities such as hands-free for contactless transactions. Instead of managing multiple corded and cordless scanners throughout the store, convertible scanners like the CS60 can reduce the number of deployed devices, ultimately reducing TCO in the long run.

2. Are associates utilizing scanners in non-traditional settings consistently?

While handheld scanners are traditionally used in the checkout lanes, they have also made their way into inventory management and cycle counting as automated data capture is proven to reduce data entry errors. Mobile scanning enables automated data capture in space-constrained counters, self-service kiosks, and shopping aisles, allowing your associates to stay efficient anywhere they go.

3. Do you need to simplify your device management plan?

Multiple devices mean multiple service and repair plans. Not only does the CS60 preform in various scanning scenarios but its inductive charging feature also eliminates the need for constant recharging. Zebra’s WiFi Friendly mode also secures scanner efficiency without WiFi interruptions. Lastly, pre-installed Virtual Tether prevents device loss by keeping scanners within range and locating misplacements within seconds.   

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, your operations may benefit from new data capture devices like the Zebra CS60. To learn more about how you start modernizing your storefront, contact us for a free consultation.
