Do I need a barcode?

Do I need a barcode? Want more information? Track n Trace Solutions can assist with all your barcode scanner questions.
The choice of using a barcode system is your choice. However, if you are a importer/distributor and are selling into retail stores then you will need an EAN barcode. You would need to contact GS1 on this. Also check with the stores/store if the product/s you are supplying, needs to be in accordance with GS1. Smaller stores may tell you that you do not need it.

If you are not selling into retail stores, then as mentioned above, this is a choice that is not mandatory. However, there are definate benefits to barcoding for any organisation.

Benefits include;

  • Business efficiencies increased due to no data entry and almost negating human error.
  • Better stock control - more efficient stocktakes, receipting, picking & dispatching.

Typical barcodes used for internal use are Code 39 and Code 128.

"Would like to give you some feedback on the how the use of the scanners has improved the accuracy and reduced the downtime whilst performing a Stocktake. As you know AirRoad Logistics is a 3PL warehouse provider.

The Stocktake performed last year for one customer took 12 hours with 15 people Involved Nationally. This year the Stocktake count was completed in 3 hours nationally. With an additional hour for reconciliation. A saving of 8 hours x 15 people. (66% Savings in Labour Costs)

The programming loaded into the scanners ensured that we were able to ensure the user was collecting the right information thus reducing human error.

We also found the service you offered met and exceeded our expectations. Thanks again for your continued support"

AirRoad Logistics Pty Ltd

"In August this year (2014) we held a roadshow seeing just over 450 clients. Previously we have manually created name badges to place into the holders for each client across each event and asked our attendee’s to record their attendance on a registration sheet upon entry.  Using Tim’s barcode scanners and barcoded name badges for this event provided an easy, stress free registration and attendance process that our staff and clients loved! We will never do this as a manual process again.  I highly recommend the company and their products/services! "

“Thank you to for providing a fantastic service. We really appreciated all your efforts in organising these scanners for us and at such late notice. Everything went well with the event and was a great success with the help of your scanners. Hope to do business again in the future.”

Kindest regards,
George P Johnson (Australia)
