What are Barcode Labels?

Barcode labels are a type of asset sticker that can enable the use of a barcoding system. A barcode represents a set of data in a visual form. Most will be familiar with barcodes from purchases in shops, with such labels consisting of parallel vertical lines in different widths and spacing. Barcodes are designed to be read by machines known as optical scanners, or barcode readers.

QR Code Labels

Now 2D variants of barcodes have increased technological capabilities, incorporating the use of digital cameras. These are currently known as QR codes, and often used to link people to different websites, such as opening a menu at a restaurant. Most people will be familiar with QR codes now, thanks to the UK governments’ use of them as part of the ‘track and trace’ system. They can also be used as a method of systemising items and have been in use since 1994 when they were first designed for use within the automotive industry. QR codes are now more widespread as a way of including data, and the use of QR codes often shows a company to be innovative and current.

Why Should You Use Codes on Your Labels?

Using appliance ID numbers alone limits the potential of systemising processes dealing with products and equipment in the workplace. By using a barcode or QR code, it is possible to access more detailed information than is communicated on a label alone. The use of barcodes and QR codes on your labels firmly asserts your company as part of the 21st century and its new standard of professionalism.
