Barcode Scanners and Mobile Computers
 
There are many options for bar code scanners and mobile computers. Consider the environment. Most warehouse and distribution centers need industrial-grade versions 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.
 
Barcode Label Printers
 
Desktop printers, industrial printers, mobile printers. These are just 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?
 
Automated data collection systems are a smart solution to consider. This is true whether you’re looking to track inventory, improve labor efficiency or add visibility to key metrics. To get started, turn to a reputable, experience barcode software solutions company. The right solutions partner can be a valuable resource on the path to more efficient and profitable operations.
