For the operational efficiency and data accuracy, barcodes are a smart investment which helps you and your team reduce human errors. In details, clerical and data entry errors can waste significant costs and have a much more dramatic impact. According to a bulk of the research, the error rate of human data entry is 1 error per 300 characters, while the error rate of scanning by barcodes is only 1 error in 36 trillion characters based on the type of barcode used.

Although existing barcodes only are assigned to certain products or you need to create brand new barcodes for fresh inventory you plan to stock, you can still use barcodes for internal operations.

Indeed, the work process can move quickly and be tracked conveniently thanks to faster and more accurate recording of information from barcodes. Moreover, barcodes are essential for anyone who wants to keep track of each product they sell, whether in the warehouse or in brick-and-mortar retail. Not only keep better track, barcodes also save a lot of time and respond more quickly to requirements and changes.

Only with your mobile device’s camera, you can use the Shopify app to scan a barcode for a product easily.
