A barcode is a pattern of parallel lines of varying width and spacing, along with digits; a machine can read that. It quickly encodes and identifies important product details such as product numbers, serial numbers, and batch numbers.

Barcodes are widely used for efficient product identification in various industries, including supermarkets, clothing stores, and malls. They offer many advantages, such as reducing errors, cost-effectiveness, time-saving, and simplified inventory management. This global identification system benefits all parties in the supply chain, from manufacturers to logistics and wholesalers, by providing an easy and accurate way to identify products.

How Do Businesses Use Barcodes?

Barcodes are a widely used technology that provides a unique symbol, typically consisting of parallel lines and a number, which can be scanned to retrieve product information from a database. Businesses utilize barcodes in several ways, including:

  • Inventory management: Large departmental stores with extensive product lines use barcode systems to track all aspects of the product cycle, from manufacturing to sales.
  • Asset tracking: With the significant amount of IT assets businesses holds today, barcodes are used to tag and track assets in asset software.
  • Returns tracking: In online shopping, barcodes can be used to track returns. They can also be attached to invoices to facilitate the tracking of payments from customers.

Types of Barcode

There are several types of barcodes, including:

  • EAN-13: Formerly known as the European Article Number, this 13-digit barcode is used in Europe, India, and other countries.
  • UPC-A: The Universal Product Code or UPC-A is a 12-digit barcode commonly used in the US, Canada, UK, Australia, and New Zealand.
  • Databar Barcodes: These are used for fresh food products and contain additional information such as batch number, expiry date, and weight.
  • 1D Barcodes: The GS1-128 and ITF-14 are highly versatile 1D barcodes used to track items in the global supply chain. The GS1-128 can carry any ID keys and additional information, such as serial numbers and expiration dates. At the same time, the ITF-14 holds the Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) and is ideal for application to corrugated materials.
  • 2D Barcodes: These barcodes have gained popularity with online payment wallets and can hold significant information. Businesses widely use them to share websites, videos, and other data. They can hold up to 7000 digits or 4000 characters and integrate data with programs such as MS Office, MS SQL, servers, and other database files.

These are some of the commonly used types of barcodes in India, and businesses can choose the appropriate barcode depending on their specific needs and requirements.

Barcode Registration

Barcode registration refers to assigning a unique identification code to a product or item and linking it to a barcode symbol. This identification code can track the item through the supply chain and facilitate inventory management, pricing, and other business processes.

To register a barcode, you must obtain a unique identification number from a global organization such as GS1 or EAN International. These organizations maintain databases of registered identification numbers and issue them to companies that want to use barcodes for their products.

Once you have obtained an identification number, you can generate barcode symbols using software or hardware that supports the barcode format you want to use (e.g., UPC, EAN, Code 39, etc.). You can then print the barcode on labels or packaging for your products, ensuring the barcode symbol and identification code are correctly linked in your database.

Registering your barcodes with a global organization ensures that your product information is globally recognized and standardized, allowing for efficient tracking and communication across different supply chain systems.
