Reasons To Use 2D Bar Code Scanners(1)

By now you are probably familiar with 2D bar codes — such as the ubiquitous QR (quick response) code — if not by name, then by sight. Your clients are probably even using QR codes for their businesses (and if they aren’t, they should be.) While QR codes can be easily read by most cell phones and mobile devices, they are not the only 2D bar codes. The others require specialized 2D bar code scanners. You may be wondering why use the 2D bar codes that need a scanner if you can just use easily readable QR codes — but there are many good reasons to be using 2D bar codes paired with a 2D bar code scanner. Many manufacturers are now using 2D bar codes because they provide functionality and efficiency that cannot be achieved with linear 1D bar codes or the popular 2D QR code.


Below are 7 reasons your clients should be using 2D bar code scanners for their small businesses:

1.Increased Efficiency And Reduced Human Error. Entering data by hand into spreadsheets and databases or a pen and paper system is time-consuming and error prone. Once errors are made they are almost impossible to catch until the time comes that you need to find an item and can’t. That’s the worst time to be burdened with the time-consuming task of locating the missing item. Small businesses that switch from manual systems to bar code scanners can save hours or even weeks of human labor and see immediate reductions in errors and time spent finding inventory or assets.

As Paul Huffaker from Racesource Inc. explains, “Maintaining an accurate inventory count on Excel was time consuming and error ridden. Often I would reorder or manufacture parts I already had simply because I didn’t know I had them, which was an unnecessary cost.”
