Top 5 Benefits of Automated Data Collection
A startling number of companies still rely on spreadsheets to manage their processes. Automatic Data Collection software can yield enormous value for businesses. AIDC improves productivity while saving costs. Here are a few of the benefits:
Are you still using manual data entry? Data capture software eliminates errors in order entry, inventory counts and shipping processes. As a result, even small businesses see improvements. These can include labor costs, inventory losses and customer satisfaction.
Barcodes or RFID tags contain key information about the goods moving through your facility. Automatic uploads send this data to your ERP or back-end system. For instance, PO number, lot number, supplier, date of delivery are all contained in the bar code. Then, this information is accessible through receiving and purchasing records.
As a result, you can track each item throughout its life cycle. Also, AIDC software can automatically generate shipping labels. This provides an effective way to track packages. Some barcode software even provide integration with FedEx or other shipment carrier services.
Automated data systems can help reduce costly downtime and “deadheading” in your warehouse. For instance, use it to maximize efficiency by streamlining workflows. Then workers can complete replenishments, put-away, counts and picks in a logical sequence.
Did you know that inventory loss cost businesses almost $50 million in 2016? Of course, the solution for inventory control is adding visibility through automation. Automated data collection software is the key to making it happen.
For example, a barcode system provides real-time visibility to stock levels and fixed asset tracking. So you always have accurate inventory data, even in many locations.
Automated data collection gives you the power to make informed business decisions. With up-to-date reports, the latest relevant information is always at the ready. Access key metrics on inventory, labor, machine metrics and more in real-time. Then use that data to identify areas for improvement.
Is it time to install automatic identification and data collection? If so, here are some things to consider before starting your barcoding project.
The most important step of your automation journey relies on your choice of software. With hardware alone, you’re only scanning bar codes, not using the data. Also, consider if you’ll want to integrate data to your ERP or back-end business systems for easy analysis.
There are many options for bar code scanners and mobile devices. First, consider the environment. Most warehouse and distribution centers need industrial grade scanning hardware for durability. This provides added protection from dust and dirt as well as drops onto concrete.
Some versions are even designed for harsh environments like refrigerated warehouses. Also, many configurations are available. For instance, choose from vehicle-mounted computers, touch screen devices, or wearable options.
Desktop barcode printers, industrial printers, mobile printers. These are only some of the options available for barcode label printing. Plus, there are many types of label media for almost any application. Consider these questions when choosing your printer and label media.
- How will you use your barcode label?
- To what material or surface will you be affixing the label?
- Will the label need to withstand extreme temperatures? What about direct sunlight, dirt, or other harsh conditions?
- What size do you want the label to be?
