If you’re looking for supply chain management solutions for some common issues facing your company, barcode scanners may be the answer. Barcode scanners have been used for decades to improve the shopping experience as well as inventory management. They can also be used to manage the supply chain.

Enhanced Data Accuracy

Productive supply chain management relies upon accurate data. It’s difficult to manage what you can’t measure. Accurate data ensures you have precisely what’s needed on hand to fulfill customer orders. It enables you to answer customer questions with confidence, predict order fulfillment and turnaround time, and create detailed job estimates.

Barcode scanners eliminate the inevitable mistakes from manual counts and the delays from typing warehouse inventory sheets into the system. Scan the items on hand and you’re done—the data is instantly transferred to your ERP system. It’s fast, easy, and accurate, and provides excellent supply chain management solutions to enhance accuracy.

Detailed Product Information at Every Stage of Manufacturing

Another aspect of barcodes as supply chain management solutions is the detailed information available at every stage of manufacturing. Barcodes can transmit a great deal of data with one swipe and scan. Barcodes can be set up to reflect item, SKU, supplier, and more. This information can be used to provide customers with detailed product information about the raw goods being used to manufacture their end products. If they are concerned with the quality of raw goods or would like to know the origin of certain items, you can look it all up on the computer where, thanks to the ease of barcode scanning, the entire supply chain is detailed at every step of the way.
