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 Add an Extra Layer of Mobility to Your RFID Tracking System

Posted February 9, 2021

Given today’s changing customer demands, new safety regulations, and the e-commerce boost, managing inventory continues to be a struggle for most warehouses and distribution centers. As a result, RFID has remained popular across industries since it accelerates throughput while increasing accuracy rates in both the receiving and loading docks. To take RFID efficiency a step farther, we recommend integrating it into your mobile printers with the ZQ630 and ZQ630 RFID:

Why combine mobility and visibility?

Inventory management has been cited as one the top struggles warehouses face today, which means solutions simplifying inventory management can help sharpen your competitive edge. A few issues that further complicate efficient management are:

  • Sudden demand increases
  • Lagging stock updated that leads to stockouts
  • Increasing labor turnover rates that lead to high adoption rates for new technologies
  • Lack of real-time visibility

By empowering your workforce with mobile RFID devices, you are able to streamline crucial tasks such as data capture, data sharing, and even label printing, ultimately delivering real-time updates across every avenue your workforce uses. For example, RFID mobile printing allows you to:

  • Print updated RFID tags anywhere in your workflow in the event of sudden demand spikes
  • Decrease processing time by eliminating unnecessary travel paths
  • Deploy an end-to-end tracking system with easy-to-use devices for faster onboarding
  • Label incoming inventory immediately with RFID tags to start tracking stock in real-time
  • Lower employee density in printing stations
  • Increase mobility with lightweight enterprise-grade devices

Working alongside your team, Barcodes, Inc. assists with design, deployment and support services to maximize printer uptime, so your workforce can confidently manage inventory with tools that move with them.

White Paper: The Internet of Things

Posted August 31, 2015

zebrbcilogoWhat is it?

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the coming connectivity of everything you own, everything you see. No longer will access to the internet be limited to single point interfaces like your phone or computer, or single-point data sources like web pages or servers. Nor will it be limited to you! Everything you see can, and someday will, be interconnected and sharing data: your tv, your refrigerator, your home, your car, the roads you drive on, the building you work in, the package you’re delivering…everything.

So far, the Internet of Things has been most closely associated with machine-to-machine (M2M) communication in manufacturing and power, oil and gas utilities. Products built with M2M communication capabilities are often referred to as being smart.
