How To Track Inventory Using Barcodes

Making your inventory system faster, more accurate and more efficient seems like a pretty big task at first. It may even appear to be difficult and unachievable. But, no matter how big or small your inventory is, we’re here to tell you that it’s actually very straightforward to improve your inventory tracking.

Barcodes are the best way to keep track of inventory for all types of businesses; the team at Barcode Labels have helped all sorts of businesses improve their inventory processes, from museums to retail stores.

In this post, the professionals at Barcode Labels tell us how to get started with tracking inventory using barcodes:

Investing in a scanning system and software

The chief tools you’ll be using to keep track of inventory are your scanners and your software system. Implementing these can be tricky on your own, especially if you have little experience with using these systems in the first place.

Barcode Labels implement these systems for you. They help determine what you need out of your barcoding system, what type of scanners suit your business model and show you how to use the simple, effective software by Seagull Scientific USA – the industry standard in barcoding software.

Setting up specific locations

Establishing categorised locations is the next step to tracking inventory using barcodes. Barcode locations help you neatly and logically organise the contents of your inventory, allowing you to easily store and locate stock.

Barcode Labels offer their expertise in overhauling your inventory and implementing barcode locations. This highly practical and logical approach creates the foundations of your inventory management system, allowing you to scan in products to specific locations, scan them out when you need to and keep constant track of your inventory using barcodes.

Maintaining the system

Once your software, scanners and barcode locations have been implemented, the rest is up to you! From there, your inventory will be entirely reliant upon barcodes. This gives you the benefits of:

  • Accurate stock counts and inventory information
