Are Bad Barcodes Undermining Your Operations?

Verify Print Quality

Problem: Physical Damage or Distortion 
Cause: Low printer ink, movement during printing, scratches, liquids or heat.
Result: Loss of product traceability data leading to errors in production, compliance violations, or customer fines.
Solution: Verify barcodes for ISO/IEC print quality during production.


Verify Decodability

Problem: Missing Barcode Features 
Cause: Printing errors, damage or obstructions, improper barcode design.
Result: Unchecked products on the line leading to traceability issues, materials loss, and fines for noncompliance.
Solution: Verify barcodes for ISO/IEC print quality directly after printing.


Verify Data Structure

Problem: Errors in the Data String 
Cause: Barcodes encoded with missing characters or improperly-formatted data.
Result: Misinterpretation of product data, noncompliance with serialisation and product identification requirements.
Solution: Validate barcodes against GS1 or other specifications after code creation.
