One of the most important aspects of keeping a business growing is keeping track of inventory. Here we will go over the benefits of inventory tracking.
Setting up a barcode system can dramatically increase your inventory accuracy. Having barcodes on your items makes them instantly readable to a computer paired with a scanner. It lets your computer do all the heavy lifting for you. While computers aren’t perfect, they are significantly more accurate than any human ever could be. There are studies showing that even the best trained data-entry person will make at least one mistake every 250 keystrokes. On the other hand, scanning barcodes with a computer have an error rate of one in every 5,000 to 36 trillion characters scanned.
By integrating a barcode system sooner rather than later, you’re building scalability into your business. Scalability means the barcode system will work the same, regardless of whether you have one item, 100 items, or 10,000 items. A barcode system will help your company avoid growing pains as you add more products. Having a system in place also makes training new members of your team much easier. Instead of memorizing products and product descriptions to look up items, your new team member can easily scan the product in and have the computer bring up the relevant product details.
