Since their beginning in early 1970s, barcode readers have evolved into barcode scanners in a swift manner. Today more or less every product in the market comes with barcodes printed on it, which can be scanned through barcode scanners. The result is quicker check out at cash counters, easy and accurate record keeping, better inventory control for manufacturers & retailers and data tracking to better understand the customer needs and preferences.
In recent years, barcode scanner developers have taken a leap to the next level of this technology with barcode scanner apps. With the invention of Google Glass, these apps have brought countless opportunities. It allows individuals to not only purchase with a verbal cue, but they can also redefine the way people work. Barcode scanners are completely integrated into the day to day activities of inventory management, whether with the purchase of a product from a grocery store, mass merchandise or department stores.
It is always important for every medical facility to work efficiently and faster. As the number of patients at hospital grows, risks associated with keeping track of patient medical records also increases. Also, those manufacturers, who like to record their real time inventory data find these mobile apps accurate in record keeping by just scanning the barcodes using a barcode scanner.
Now a days, manufacturers are developing applications which can run on multiple platforms, which integrates barcode scanners in the devices. For instance, Wasp Barcode Technologies introduced ID barcode scanner, which easily synchronizes with Android, Windows and iOS devices to make it convenient for retailers as well as the customers.
Owing to high durability, in industrial sector, 2D barcodes such as PDF417, Data Matrix and QR codes are increasingly being used. 2D barcodes are less prone to errors and also versatile as compared to 1D barcodes. Furthermore, the 2D data could be accessed if approximately 32% of the data becomes dishonoured. Therefore, high preference towards 2D barcodes will increase the demand for 2D industrial barcode scanners.
