Year over year, customers, suppliers and regulatory bodies are requiring more and more information on the label. Not only does the label contain product identification and other important manufacturer data, it may also contain hazardous warning symbols, different languages, logos, customer information or other pertinent safety instructions.
An out-of-the-box barcode label software approach can lead to additional headaches down the road. Some of those challenges revolve around warehouse and inventory management. These can result in label inconsistencies between warehouse/distribution locations, lack of label accuracy, and the need to relabel.
Barcode label software has come a long way in the last 10 years. In the past, when a company needed to create barcode labels for shipping or some other internal supply chain process, employees on the warehouse floor would typically find a quick and easy out of the box solution to meet their immediate needs.
Once companies determine what type of barcode they need, it's time to take a closer look at their barcode labeling software options. But today's companies are realizing that when they print labels with typical boxed barcode software they're not meeting the current demands for today's labeling and a wide range of labeling issues can ensue. Some of these issues include:
The barcode is your product's passport through the supply chain. This is why, in today's global market it’s vital to look beyond the label and take a closer look at the entire supply chain.
