So, what are the things you will need to look for when it comes to implementing an adequate barcode scanning solution? Here is a set of questions that can help you decide.
How much effort does the new solution require?
In other words: How much work is necessary to deploy the new solution so that people working onsite are comfortable using it? Does IT need to get involved, and how many hours will they need to put in before things are operational? Today’s technology allows for plug and play solutions that can be set up in a matter of minutes and do not require workers to go through extensive training programs.
How about efficiency?
More complexity will lead to additional steps to be documented. However, this may add a substantial time to the already tight schedules of many organizations. So, they will need to look for solutions that help them reduce the time needed for scanning. Scanning time can be reduced by up to four seconds per scan. Reaching for a scanner is a thing of the past, wearing one it is the future.
Can the new solution help raise picking quality?
Organizations will need to maintain high quality standards. So the question is: Can the barcode scanning solution help raise and maintain these standards? This is even more important since many of the process steps will become tedious for workers on the shopfloor. So that they can easily lose focus, particularly when it comes to scanning the right items. Needless to say some errors will be costly and come with a legal liability. Barcode scanning solutions can and will need to be more than simple I/O devices. They can provide guidance for workers.
