EVOLUTION OF THE BARCODE
WHY COLLECT DATA? WHY IDENTIFY PRODUCTS?
All companies need to identify their products and collect this data in one way or another.
The faster and more accurately this identification happens - in other words, the more "online" we transform the collection of this data into information - the more visibility of our business, enabling faster and more efficient decision-making.
In addition to items and objects, it is also possible to identify people, company employees, newborns in hospitals, schoolchildren, travel groups, event participants, etc.
