Streamlining Barcode Inventory Systems

Barcoding has many benefits including, reducing human error, improving inventory tracking and expediting receiving and shipping processes. Once a bar coding system has been implemented the biggest challenge is ensuring that all products are labeled and labeled correctly. Accomplishing this can create bottlenecks in your receiving and warehousing departments. However, choosing the right supply partners can go a long way in eliminating these bottlenecks.

What if every product you received, regardless of manufacturer, already had your barcode label?

That’s exactly the type of time and money saving benefit that bisco industries offers.

How we do it:

  1. Our diverse supplier network means we can procure nearly any part from any manufacturer
  2. Our 7 stocking warehouses create barcoding labels to your specifications for all outgoing products.

bisco offers many other services including custom packaging and dedicated inventory. Learn more about bisco’s value added services by contacting a local bisco representative today.

Inventory Management by bisco

Overseeing the ordering, storage, and use of the components that your company utilizes is an imperative part of running an efficient business. A business’ inventory can either be a major asset or a major risk depending on how it’s managed. In fact mismanagement of inventory can result in grave financial consequences for an organization.

Plan for Success

Successful inventory management requires creating a comprehensive strategy. An inventory management program should track existing inventory, inventory usage, and forecasted demand in addition to alerting buyers when more inventory is required. By implementing an inventory management program buyers can ensure they receive the exact quantity, exactly when they need it.

Each program is custom designed to reduce the cost of purchasing, handling, and carrying inventory while ensuring the inventory you need is available when you need it. These services can work in conjunction with an auto replenishment service or as a standalone service.
