If you thought that barcodes were only used on products that are sold in store then think again. Barcodes are used for far more purposes today. They carry and retain information that can be quickly and easily scanned in a relatively small space. Scanning information from barcode labels can be done within a matter of moments.
Here are some uses of barcode labels:
- ID Cards
Many ID cards today will have barcode labels on them which can easily be scanned through a swipe card system. These can be used to record employees clocking in and clocking out as well as providing a relatively simple and straightforward security measure for buildings.
Various documents of government offices or other organizations sometimes have barcode labels on them. These labels can be used to record the date and time when the documents were returned as well as information about the person who has completed them.
- Tickets For Events
Tickets now often have barcode labels on them which identify them as being genuine. Tickets can be easily scanned when people are entering an event venue and this information can also be used to keep a tally of how many people are in a building.
Barcodes are so useful because they can contain so much information and can be stuck on documents, parcels, ID cards and many other areas with ease.
