The automotive industry is probably not the first industry that comes to mind when you think of barcodes. However, barcode technology has helped to revolutionise this industry by providing fast and accurate inventory and shipping information to pass among trading partners throughout the supply chain.
Barcodes are incredible. From supermarket check outs to labelling bags of donated blood, these black and white stripes have revolutionised the way so many industries operate. However, for many people, they remain a mystery. We see them being scanned when we buy our shopping, but have you ever stopped to wonder how they actually work? And what other incredible things are barcodes capable of?
With more uses for barcodes and asset tracking systems than ever before, more and more industries have been completely transformed by this technology. Barcode tracking provides virtually error-free data collection, and it’s this application that makes barcodes such an asset to so many different kinds of business operations.
In a previous post, we looked at three industries where barcodes had taken over: healthcare, retail and marketing. Continuing on from that, we’re going to take a look at another three industries that have streamlined and improved their operations through the implementation of barcode technology.
Retail has an extensive history spanning hundreds of years to become what we know it as today. Even now retail is constantly having to change and adapt to keep up in an ever digitising world.

Retail is one of the most important sectors in the world and involves so many different industries and roles. Here we’re going to take a brief look at where retail started, how it developed and where it is now.

From healthcare to manufacturing, barcoding technology has completely streamlined their processes and significantly reduced the possibility of admin errors.
Tracking software has revolutionised the way businesses perform their operations. The demand for products across every sector has steadily increased over time, and new production processes and technologies have been introduced to keep up. The ever growing supply of inventory owned by businesses demand more sophisticated means of tracking and storing these assets.
Whilst currently there is a multitude of sophisticated and advanced digital technology designed for asset tracking, this was not always the case. Let’s take a look back at some of the first types of asset tracking systems and how they have developed into the systems we use today.
Does your business have issues with stock control? Is there a lack of instant data updates and accessibility? Are there issues with delayed shipments, too low or too high a number of products in your inventory? If these problems sound like your business, then you should consider an efficient barcoding system for your business.
