Guest I would like to track the flow of documents such as letters and memos in various departments. I am planning to use a bar code system to track this but don’t know what the capabilities of it are and what I need to purchase before I can use it.

Your application is considered an asset tracking solution as you will want to see where each document is at any given moment. With a software like ASAP Passport Assets you can label each document and as it progresses through your business you can scan the code to associate the item to a new location. You can then run a variety of reports to get an overall picture of the asset usage. This system works with either a standard scanner like the Honeywell 1300g at a PC or if you need a mobile device the Unitech PA600 is a great fit.
