In-motion barcode scanning has revolutionized the way businesses manage their inventory and track their assets. This technology permits companies to scan barcodes on products or items as they move through a production line on a conveyor belt. As part of an automated end-of-line system, barcode scanners can help your company save time, reduce errors, and increase efficiency. Barcode scanning is one of several tools you can incorporate into your checkweighing process with devices from AP Dataweigh, Inc. Contact our team today to learn more about how in-motion barcode scanning can provide you with the following benefits.
Increased Production Efficiency
In-motion barcode scanning lets you process items quickly and efficiently. By scanning barcodes as your items move along a conveyor belt, employees no longer need to scan each item manually. This reduces the time required to process every item and increases your production rate without sacrificing accuracy.
Improved Product Accuracy
Manual barcode scanning can put you at risk for errors, especially if the process is done quickly or if the barcode is damaged. In-motion barcode scanning reduces these errors by scanning the codes rapidly and accurately and eliminating the chance of human error. This level of accuracy can help you ensure that your inventory is accurate and up-to-date, which improves the overall quality of your data.
Your business can more easily track items in real-time as they move through your systems when you incorporate efficient in-motion scanning. Tracking data can help you identify production bottlenecks and other issues that may slow down processes. You can make adjustments and improve your production efficiency by spotting the problem areas. Real-time tracking can also help you quickly identify missing or misplaced items, which reduces the risk of lost inventory and assets.
Reduced Labor Costs
By automating the scanning process, in-motion barcode scanning can help your business reduce labor costs. By moving scanning to automation, you can move employees to other tasks, such as quality control, that require a more detailed approach. When you reduce the need for manual scanning, you can also reduce the risk of repetitive motion injuries and other workplace injuries that may result in workers’ compensation costs.
Enhanced Customer Service
Automated scanning can also help businesses improve customer service by reducing the time it takes to process orders and fulfill customer requests. This can help you meet customer demand more quickly, which improves customer satisfaction and loyalty. Real-time tracking additionally enables you to provide customers with accurate information about the status of orders or shipments, enhancing communication and reducing customer complaints.
