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.

The 12 digit UPC bar code system was designed in the early 1970’s by George J. Laurer in the USA (when he was working as an engineer for IBM). A few years later he developed a 13 digit version of this code – the EAN-13 code – for use internationally (outside of the USA).

Yes. Your codes are guaranteed to be unique for your products. All barcodes have originated from GS1 and come delivered with an included certificate to guarantee their authenticity.

Determining the best type of barcode to use depends on the environment, requirements, application, and printer.
