It is a shame that many small businesses often overlook barcodes as a method for cutting costs and saving time. Barcodes South Africa is a cost-effective and practical choice for any business, big or small looking to improve productivity and diminish overhead costs.

If you are a business that isn’t using barcode technology yet, here are seven vital advantages of barcoding technology that might encourage you to install your own system…
Barcodes guard against the chance of data-entry errors

Implementing barcode technology makes systems automatic, and eliminates the risk of errors occurring that are inevitable in manual data entry. Not only does barcode technology work far faster than the manual method, it is far more reliable and saves huge costs associated with mistakes in the long run.
Barcode technology cuts down on the time needed to train employees
This is so because it takes a matter of minutes (if that) for an employee to grasp how the handheld scanner works and how to scan the barcode. This, coupled with the fact that it means employees will not have to try to learn a whole stock list or pricing, means employees can be trained in less than half the time. Not only will this mean you can have employees working and earning you profit far quicker, it also means that you will save huge costs.
Barcodes mean tracking serial numbers is easier
Barcode technology makes the process of serialising your stock automatic. Not only this, it also will recall what digits have been used before so you will never have to grapple with remembering at what point you left off.
Inventory management and control is done quickly and easily

Not only can you track your products, but you can track your equipment. This means its location can be found in a matter of seconds, which saves you valuable work time — and you will also save unnecessary costs replacing equipment that is assumed to be lost.
