How to track inventory using barcodes

Two important points to consider when implementing an inventory management system;

  1. Most products today already have a barcode, and
  2. Your entire workforce is already carrying mobile computers (a smartphone).

Orca Scan leverages these two facts to help you roll out a custom inventory system, company-wide, in minutes.

To get started:

  1. Download the Orca Scan barcode app
  2. Create a new sheet using the Inventory Tracking Template
  3. Scan a barcode on a product
  4. Enter the quantity (optional location)
  5. Save the changes

You can now share your sheet with teammates, allowing them to search your inventory or scan items into and out of stock from any device. In addition, the barcode history log lets you see how your inventory changes over time by tracking updates from all users.

Why is inventory tracking important?

Inventory tracking helps companies understand what products they have in stock and in which location. Inventory typically has an impact on a company’s books; carrying too much stock can be a risk. Likewise, discovering you do not have an item in stock when you need it could cost you business.

What if an inventory item does not have a barcode?

For inventory items that do not have a barcode, you can generate and print barcode labels from the Orca Scan web and mobile applications.

The Orca team have helped hundreds of companies implement a barcode inventory system from scratch, often replacing paper-based systems. So if you need help brainstorming how best to track your inventory, get in touch; we’d be happy to help.
