What Is A Wireless Barcode Scanner?

by Barry Wong Author

A wireless barcode scanner is a device that is battery powered, handheld, and is able to transmit data. The base doubles as the charger for the battery, however the base is also able to communicate to a number of barcode scanners up to a few feet at the same time. There are a number of advantages to using wireless barcode scanners, and this has led to their increased popularity. Furthermore, because they are becoming ever more popular, manufacturers are competing to produce better and even more affordable models every year, which is obviously good news for the consumer.

What Are The Benefits Of Using A Handheld Wireless Barcode Scanner?

Wireless barcode scanners actually have a number of benefits when compared to other types of scanners that are available on the market. For one thing, being handheld, the wireless version is portable, which means that using one is much easier. Also, because they are portable, there is less of a chance that mistakes will occur while they are being used. Some have even gone so far as to state that these wireless scanners are one of the most beneficial devices that have ever been made available to people working in the retail industry. 

When you use a wireless barcode scanner it becomes far easier to check in stock. Your employees will no longer have to devote hours and hours to counting items in order to perform a stock count, which means you save money. Mistakes are reduced and the process of capturing items (whatever they may be) into a system is achieved far more efficiently and easily. The wireless scanner will help your employees perform this function far more quickly and easily. 

Wireless Barcode Scanners And The Barcode Printer

Handheld scanners are also capable of scanning and updating the price tags on your products. Most people in the retail industry are aware of the fact that this process alone could end up taking a very long time. Also, errors are more common the old fashioned way. Thankfully, that has changed with the advent of the wireless barcode scanner, because updating price tags using one of these devices is now really simple and quick to do, not to mention the fact that they allow for improved reliability. All that needs to happen is for the product to be scanned and the information is entered into the system. If necessary, updated price tags can then be produced using the barcode printer, and affixed either to the product itself, or to the shelf on which it is displayed. Understandably, having a wireless handheld barcode scanner at the cash register can also help to keep things moving along more efficiently and quickly, thereby saving time and money.

Another distinct advantage to the handheld portable scanner is when it is used for items that weigh a lot, or are difficult to handle. Instead of the client, customer, or cashier having to lift the item up, the scanner can simply be used to scan the barcode without any hassles.

In Closing 

Handheld, portable wireless barcode scanners, in conjunction with a barcode printer, help to increase productivity while at the same time eliminating many unnecessary problems. Any department store that wants to function at an optimum level would be remiss if they ignored the many benefits of this clever and practical device
