Using Barcodes for Other Purposes
Monday, September 10, 2018

The most common use of barcodes is to track inventory. However, you should not limit your creativity and can discover other uses of barcodes. Let us take a look at some other purposes of barcodes.

barcode  Movies, Travelling, Events

To verify a ticket and identify its uniqueness, barcodes are used in tickets. They also help to track revenue by counting the sales which are generated from an event.

Therefore the whole process of spending money to produce paper tickets can be made more effective by introducing barcodes. Those people who want to watch the show or attend the event can print the barcode at their ease. All they have to do is present it before entering the show.

Barcodes are also increasingly being used for tickets in travelling. Whether you are using a bus service or traveling by air, you can print the tickets from your home and show the barcode to the gate keeper.

Advertising

Barcodes have become a popular medium to advertise a product or service. By incorporating barcodes, advertisers are reaching out to their customers in a unique and attractive way. The increasing use of smartphones has helped the companies to extend their marketing campaign by making use of barcodes.

You can now use the barcodes to download and install an app. You can also get discount codes by using a barcode scanner. Barcodes for advertising can be seen in newspapers, magazines, or now even in emails and websites.

Barcodes on Food Items

Barcodes are helping to track food intake. Some specific apps can be used to check the nutrition information by scanning the barcode on the item. In this way, you know what you are eating and how healthy it is for you.

Barcodes on Business Cards

You might be observing a latest trend of barcodes on business cards. The custom code is printed on the card and when you scan it, you can find the name, contact details and other information about the business. You also find further information such as the website and address of the company. The companies can also include their blogs and social media profiles to make it easier for the recipient to find them. The barcodes also look quite unique and attractive to the customers.

The reason barcodes are being used extensively is that they can hold a lot of information. They just take a little space on paper but the information they hold is significant. If you need a barcode reader, you can contact Rilco Industrial Controls. Dependence on barcode is increasing day by day. It is important that you stay in competition by using attractive technologies like barcodes. Rilco Industrial Controls believes in industrial automation and barcode readers can help you automate your processes.
