When barcodes are used in the business process, procedures are automated to increase productivity and reduce human error.
Whenever there is a need to accurately identify or track something, bar-coding should be used. For example, in a data entry work environment, workers may be required to enter an enormous amount of data into a customer database system. Instead of manually typing a customer identification number into a database, if the information is contained in a barcode, a data entry operator may scan it in. This would increase automation and reduce human error.
Determining the best type of barcode to use depends on the environment, requirements, application, and printer.
No. EAN/UPC, ITF-14 and GS1-12 8 Bar Codes have a standardized data content, which means they can be used by any company with GS1 System, and not be confused with any other symbology. Other bar codes, for example code 39 do not have a multi-industry standardized approach to the data they contain, and so are only really usable in controlled systems where they will not be confusing to interpret.
