Barcode Labels Will Increase Production and Cut Costs
If you are a business owner there are two things you should always be looking to do. Increase your business production and cutting your operation costs. Have a new product? Promotion? Do shipping? Have inventory? Well all of these and more can be benefited from barcode labels. Here is a breakdown of why barcode labels can boost your business.
Stepping Up Into the Big Leagues
If you have a product that you plan to sell it is vital to register your product with GS1. GS1 is the global authority of barcodes. Sending all your information in about your company and product, you will receive an unique 12 digit UPC. Using this globally recognized barcode process will instantly make your product recognizable in any other business system.
Managing Your Inventory
Now that your product is recognized globally, you can take advantage of the inventory benefits of barcode labels. You can scan and track your inventory. Doing so you save the cost of having someone physically tracking inventory. This reduces the risk of human error as well.
Having an error in your inventory control can shut down businesses. The havoc that such a simple error can create is devastating. If you are faced with an inventory error having the barcode label will save your business for sure. Let’s say that you have inventory being stolen. With a traditional inventory manager this can be overlooked and often is. Using barcode labels you know even if one item goes missing.
Also barcode labels will reduce the chance of shipping errors. Having a very diverse product there always runs the risk of accidentally sending the wrong item to the wrong person. These labels can track down to the minute detail and differences between your product.
Counterfeiting has cost over 750,000 jobs in the United States. These jobs are mainly lost by businesses that can not track and regulate their incoming and outgoing inventory. Using a barcode you are able to fight back against any duplicates trying to rip off your product. On the other end of the spectrum, anything that you have incoming into inventory that is on the GS1 standard can be double checked for authenticity. Having a barcode also will make your consumers feel more comfortable with your product. This way they can also track and regulate their inventory.
Expand Your Consumer Interaction
Using the fast growing consumer barcode QR codes, you can get an extra opportunity for marking towards your consumers. What a QR code does is send your consumers when scanned to any webpage that you choose.
This means you can give the consumer more information on your product if they scan. When they do they are taken to your website with more training regarding your product. There are literally unlimited possibilities that you can do mixing QR codes into your marketing efforts on labels.
Knowing the benefits is just the first step in the process. You can either buy a barcode labeling machine and get up and running creating your own labels or let us handle your label needs.
