When it comes to keeping a warehouse properly stocked, barcodes are essential. Here are the basics about the benefits.
Print and Scan
Use barcode scanners to immediately capture and transfer information from physical products to your stock. Scanning eliminates manual typing – a scan takes the same amount of time as two keystrokes – and reduces human error. In a recent survey, over 75% of respondents said the most frequent root cause of an inventory or fulfillment issue was a human error from manual process management. By scanning barcodes, you can be confident what is being counted and/or picked is both the right item and is immediately recorded.
Pick and Pack
The only thing worse than unnecessary shipping costs is losing a customer’s trust – both of which can happen when you accidentally ship the wrong item(s). Using a barcode scanner for your shipping and fulfillment operations ensures you’re picking and packing what the customer ordered – and you’re saving time while doing it. In addition, to quickly and efficiently processing orders, your warehouse employees can pick and pack for multiple orders at the same time. When picking items to ship, a picklist is created and the picker can see the required products to select, as well as their locations, right from their mobile tablet. As they scan items using a barcode, the picker can ensure they are selecting the correct item.
