Barcode solutions can help alleviate your exhaustion while maintaining your productivity, which means they’re a business saver you need to know about immediately.

Why Choose Barcode Solutions?

According to a 2017 BigCommerce and Square study, e-commerce is growing at a whopping 23% year over year. That’s a lot. With trends like that, your busy warehouse may never slow down! Rising e-commerce opportunities spell incredible news for the health of your business … but they might not be such great news for your personal health and happiness. You need to take your time back.

Because of the recent spike in warehousing profitability across the industry, many overwhelmed distributors have been turning to various time-saving solutions. These include pick-to-light picking tools, RFID inventory tracking, wearables that monitor worker movements, warehouse drones and IoT, and even robots and co-bots.

But, there’s a problem with all those solutions: they’re pricey. And since you’re not Amazon, you don’t have millions and millions of dollars to spend on fancy gadgets. Maybe someday you’ll have that kind of earning potential, but right now you need fast, affordable, realistic solutions that will deliver a reasonable ROI quickly.

Time Is of the Essence

ROI isn’t the only thing that has to be quick about your chosen solution. Since you’re working so hard, you also don’t have time to devote to researching and implementing trendy warehouse tools, and you certainly don’t have the time to waste choosing and implementing the wrong tool.

You only have one try to find the perfect barcode solution. You need to get this right.

Ready to start? As a busy distributor considering barcode solutions, you can save yourself a lot of time by answering a few key questions before you begin your barcode search. That way, you can make the most of your selection process.

In part 2 of this series, you’ll learn the five key questions you need to ask yourself, so you can ensure that you deliver incredible customer satisfaction, ease your training time, gain insight into all your operations at once, and maximize your barcode usage across your entire company.
