Barcode Scanning and Retail... Two Peas in a Pod

Thin margins and high employee turnover are some of the biggest hurdles in the retail industry. Running a successful retail operation means that workflow systems must be cost-efficient and easy to use. Code barcode scanning solutions are competitively affordable and user friendly—but it doesn’t stop there. Driven by the sincere desire to exceed expectations, each scanner is also protected by a durable, lightweight plastic external housing and powered by enterprise-level scanning technology on the inside. For over 20 years, Code has been an industry pioneer, leader, and champion for data capture innovation and it shows. Code’s industry innovating product portfolio includes both hardware and software image-based data capture solutions that spotlight its unique bundle of powerful decoding algorithms. Picking the right data capture technology for your retail barcode scanning needs eliminates many of the workflow efficiency struggles that seem to devour time and resources.

Barcode Scanning & Manufacturing Go Hand-In-Hand

There are literally hundreds of moving pieces in any manufacturing process. These variables affect the quality, safety, efficiency, and bottom line profit margins for companies large and small. Identifying process weak points, monitoring inventory statuses, forecasting production flow, and hundreds of other workflow processes can be tracked — facilitating real-time decision making for management teams nationwide. Data capture makes all this possible.

Setting the new Precedent for Mobility in Healthcare – Bye-Bye, Bulky Sled!

Posted by Leslie Titus Bryant on Jul 16, 2018 7:45:00 AM

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.

Barcode scanners are basically all the same, Right? Actually, no.

Barcode scanners and healthcare go hand in hand. A lot like peas and carrots or Sonny and Cher. Supporting role aside, barcode scanning has the outstanding ability to make healthcare’s leading performance even better. How you might ask? By reducing if not eliminating ADEs (adverse drug events) increasing patient safety and eliminating transcription errors. Government mandates have made data capture solutions a necessary part of each healthcare facility’s operation. Aside from regulations, data capture solutions ensure patient safety through iterative checks and documentation. Unique identifiers (barcodes) are attached to patients, medications, equipment, and pretty much every item located in a healthcare setting for track and trace purposes. Additionally, cleaning, inventory, and hospitality crews use data capture solutions to track room cleanings and patient nutrition. Those little barcodes have a very big job.

Barcode Scanning 101

Posted by Leslie Titus Bryant on Jul 4, 2018 4:23:50 PM

Today we consume data from a variety of places, digital channels, and different devices–often all at the very same time. This technological age can be inspiring and overwhelming. The amount of "smart" devices that seem to connect themselves has created a widespread perception that barcode scanners are plug-and-play. While this may be true in some situations like the simplicity of reading a UPC barcode at retail, it is not the case for the majority of workflow scenarios that need the data captured to do more than display a price. For example, 2D barcodes, tiny or extremely large barcodes, damaged or poor contrasting barcodes, scanning hundreds of barcodes at a single time, or trying to scan something that may have many different types of barcode symbologies all together is far more complicated,

Specific coding and superior scanning technology make it possible for the barcode scanner to decode these more complicated examples as well as parse only the data wanted from each of the different codes. This unique ability weeds out most barcode scanners on the market, but when you think of the time it can save you it is really worth doing your homework. Instead of having to scan one code at a time while trying to cover up others to get the right read, over and over again. You could actually scan them all at the same time and have it deliver only the data you want. Genius right? Options like this can not only save you time and money depending on your workflow, they are custom configured and require working with a barcode scanning hardware company that loves to delight their customers by offering this type of service.
