What is Barcode Scanning?
Simply put, Mobile Barcode Scanning is the process of scanning barcodes in order to confirm that you’re picking the right product. A lot of people may think that scanning barcodes will make them faster, but that’s actually not always true. More often than not it will actually slow you down. But crucially it will always improve accuracy.
The key benefit of scanning barcodes in a warehouse is a 100% confirmation that you’re picking the right product. It is very easy to make a picking mistake when you have two different products that look very similar and may even be named very similarly, and to pick the wrong one can lead to high costs.
