David Nye Bar Coding Example


Please refer to the stock control example page to see how bar coding fits into a typical stock control application.

Bar Code Labels

Bar code labels or scan sheets can easily be printed using either any standard laser or inkjet printer, or one of the specialist label printers recommended for more durable results. All the common bar code formats are supported, and these can be output straight from the existing stock records.

Bar Code Scanning

Once the stock items have been labelled with bar codes, any stock movement can be controlled by scanning the bar code to identify the stock item. Alternatively, scan sheets can be used if the number of different items is relatively small, or to scan codes to identify the department or destination, for example.
