Bar Code File Inventories
Inventory File Locations with Bar Code Technology
The performance of bar code inventories of files-in-circulation is related to the dependability of files being check-in and checked-out.
If files are dependably checked-out, and, files do not move often once in-circulation, then file inventories do not need to be performed, or, not performed frequently.
If files are not checked-in or checked-out frequently enough to ensure that the SmartTraxx database shows correct file locations, then periodic inventories of files-in-circulation are required to ensure that staff can rapidly find needed files.
If files are checked-out dependably, but, files move frequently from person-to-person or place-to-place once in-circulation, then somewhat frequent inventories of files-in-circulation are required to ensure that staff can rapidly access needed files.
Bar code solutions can easily and affordably be upgraded to RFID, to make inventories much easier and faster. And, so that missing/needed files can be found with radio wave.
