Warehouses have been around since the time of Ancient Rome and are such a great invention, they remain part of our modern industry. Barcode scanning has been around for almost 50 years, and its value to industry and manufacturing grows with each passing year. Manufacturing has come to rely on this technology for inventory management, shipping and receiving, traceability, and much more. Without barcodes, manufacturers would be forced to rely on employees calculating and recording by hand in order to track the various components of business. Decades of study have shown that performing these processes by hand leads to higher rates of error, costing businesses time and money.

Have you ever wondered about replacing your dedicated barcode scanners with a scanning solution integrated into a smartphone or other mobile device? Many managers and business owners have been curious about making the switch to mobile scanning apps. Like you, they had questions about how such a transition might work and how it would affect workflows and processes. For example:

Lottery and Gaming
It’s no secret that lotteries have been big business for decades, not only in the US, but around the globe. In the US alone in 2016, adults spent $72.7 billion on lottery tickets of all kinds. With jackpots reaching into the hundreds of millions of dollars, it’s no wonder lottery fever catches people from all walks of life, nor is it any wonder that people will go to extreme lengths to try to cheat the system. Every day, millions of people hand over hard-earned money for a chance at wealth, and every day, thousands of others scheme ways to defraud the system. In both cases, the lure of instant wealth (or even just an extra 20 bucks), draws folks to play some form of a lottery ticket.
Cost of Doing Business Increase? Nope, Not for Code
What is that all about you might ask? Well, back in August the United States government placed new tariffs on a number of goods being imported from China. The first wave of action on this started on October 1st. The long and short of it is that an extra 10% duty will be placed on 279 product categories, including barcode readers and this tax will increase to 25% in January of 2019.
Healthcare Meets a Mobile Revolution
With forward thinking ingenuity, and patient care as a priority, Rush University Hospital, a Chicago-based academic health system set out to improve the health of their patients and the diverse communities they serve. One of the first items on their list was to find the most efficient mobile solution to improve the varied prescribed medication process with accurate patient identification at the point of care. Shedding bulky sleds and additional scanning hardware, Rush incorporated enterprise-grade barcode scanning mobility, the first of its kind in healthcare, into their workflow using nurse favored and requested iOS devices.
When someone talks about "barcode scanning" in general, it has always meant hardware that is specialized for particular barcode types (1D, 2D, DPM, etc...) and for industries like healthcare, manufacturing, industrial, logistics, government, and others. Depending on the workflow complexity, this could even mean that there may be a need for more than one type of barcode scanner. Costs can start to exponentially climb when upgrades are needed, products are EOL'd, or their life-cycles simply come to a sad and damaged end.
