Key Takeaways

⇨ The disconnect between system inventory and on-the-floor inventory has been a classic and one of the persistent warehouse operations challenges.

⇨ Mobile barcoding technology with barcode digitization can transform warehouse operations and should be foundational for building smart warehouses.

⇨ Mobile barcodes are cost-effective and can track fixed physical assets for inventory control or lifecycle management tracking purposes.

The COVID-19 pandemic created a “new normal” for businesses and magnified the challenges of warehouse operations. Warehouse executives now need to innovate and design scalable systems to accommodate unanticipated demand and manage associated challenges. Computing and technology advancement, specifically edge computing, has enabled organizations to tactically leverage smart devices and mobile solutions. Miniaturization, increased performance and energy efficiency, and lowered smart device production costs have contributed to intelligent mobile devices adoption on warehouse floors. Smart sensor computing capabilities have improved significantly, allowing data processing and analysis at or near the source (“edge computing”) and minimizing the data transferred between the device and the platform. All these elements create a fertile ground for mobility solutions proliferation. Mobile barcode technology has taken center stage with an increase in the adoption of mobility solutions.
