The rationale behind the accuracy and efficiency of the transaction is that any item that is barcoded carries information about its identification and other relevant that are stored in the host computer which is part of the barcode system.  An important component of the system, the barcode scanner, decodes the information contained in the barcode label and shows it in a human-readable output, in the monitor.

Barcode languages are presented in the labels as symbols like a group of black bars of non-uniform widths, thicknesses, and lengths alternately with unequal white spaces.  Each group or set stands for a given number of characters.  The barcode software commands the processes of storing and decoding the information in barcode labels.

The barcode software is considered a critical part that determines how the whole barcode system operates. The software developer may design an inventory system that maintains a list of the company’s products and their respective product identification and other basic information. The software may include instructions for inventory management, such as inventory tracking, records updating, and data retrieval every time the barcode is scanned. The software to be used will depend on the needed activities and desired results whenever a barcode is scanned.
