Barcode Scanner Software

Track Inventory and Control Stock with Easy to use Barcode Scanner Software

Barcode Scanner Software

If your business sells anything, whether that be clothes, electronics, white goods, brown goods or even widgets, you’ll realise that staying on top of the huge amount of physical goods and related data involved is a major task in its own right. It’s one that has been made easier in recent years with the invention of the barcode, and the range of easily available devices that can scan them, all of which benefit from smart coding to link them to an inventory management system.

If you are responsible for your company’s warehousing or otherwise involved in inventory management, then your ability to track, trace and report on your inventory is key to your effectiveness. Barcodes are a tried-and-tested means of ensuring the speed and accuracy of your stock picking and checking – and the software powering your barcode scanner software makes all the difference to its performance.

We will create bespoke barcode scanner software with your very particular business needs in mind. Based on longtime experience developing systems for a range of customers across different industries, it’s likely you will want to take advantage of at least some of this list of common features:

  • Cycle counts and audits keep you updated about what you’ve got, and where you’ve got it.
  • Report presets to update suppliers with stock data.
  • Stock tracking by multiple categories – location, site, serial number, date, lot, or pallet.
  • Alerts to flag-up critical situations such as low stock levels, items that are expired or past due-by date.
  • Automated check in/out of assets to be sure nothing is misplaced.
  • Supplier codes with pertinent information for ease of vendor management.

With regard to barcodes, in particular, there are a range of options you’ll need to think about that we have various solutions for:

  • Labelling software gives you the option of designing your own labels, or using an extensive range of label templates.
  • Options for designing and printing different types of label – for shipping, warehouse, retail, manufacturing, or custom uses (e.g. for special environments like the pharmaceutical industry).
  • Create barcodes using Microsoft Office programs like Microsoft Word, Microsoft Access, or Microsoft Excel.
  • Coding that improves the speed of Point-of-Sale (POS) transactions.

Case study

Sigma-Aldrich is a company known for leading the way in science and biotechnology, but that hard-won status was jeopardised by the implications of an inventory management system audit.

That check, conducted at a point when off-site technical difficulties with asset management were becoming apparent, was a well-timed reminder that the technology and hardware the company had in place was proprietary. Spares and replacements were hard to come by, and some of that technology was ill-suited to contemporary means of data transfer. All in all, a bad situation to be in, which compromised the business’s ambitions for expansion and growth and could have led to reputation problems because of being tied into someone else’s product line past the point where that connection was of benefit.

Our solution? We updated the outmoded proprietary system with an Android-based one and used that new platform as the basis of a fresh approach to their inventory management software. That’s worked really well for them, and the adoption of Android doesn’t tie them to anyone – us included – as well as giving them access to a whole new range of hardware choices.
