All companies that sell their products to a large retailer must use barcode labels, but if you own a small business that just sells products online or to smaller retailers, you may not be required to use them. The question then becomes – should you? Barcodes have been around for quite a while, but it has only been more recently that small businesses have seen the benefits involved with using barcode labels and decided to implement them. Here are some reasons why you should consider implementing barcode labels.
- Professional Appearance– You’ll look like a larger company and instill legitimacy confidence.
- Multiple Product Locations– If you keep products in various storage locations or retail locations, it can be easier to track your inventory with barcode labels.
- Growth Preparation– If your ultimate goal is to sell your products to a large retailer, getting a jump on using barcode labels isn’t a bad idea.
- Selling to Vendors– If you plan to sell to vendors that will in turn sell to large retailers, they will appreciate that you use barcode labels to save them from adding them.
- Large Inventory– The larger your inventory is, the more beneficial using barcode labels is, especially when you are doing physical inventory.
- Checking Out Customers– Having barcode labels streamlines the checkout process and avoids errors.
- Pricing Updates– Instead of having to chance price tags on each item, barcode labels let you change just the signage and shelving price tags.
