Track & Trace
Track & Trace is the commonly used name for tracking items via standardized reference numbers or dedicated barcodes. Barcodes, attached on mail and parcels enable complete traceability of the products. Here, the Opticon mobile devices with integrated scanners show their added value. Allowing fast en effective barcode data capture is the key to using the already available data on the postal label and shows information concerning the quality, cost and time frame of the activity.
Case study: 'Leading Italian postal services operator uses H19B'
Opticon barcode data collectors are lightweight, have a high scan rate and all scanned data of the entire day is collected on the memory, enabling to use the devices all day long.
"With Opticon solutions the barcode identifiers on postal items are scanned in a fraction of a second, reducing paperwork and increasing traceability."
The latest development involves the worldwide Global Positioning System (GPS) allowing workforces to easily find their destination or even more important - to connect the business application data to the absolute GPS times and real-world coordinates. The key benefit of GPS integrated in Opticon devices is that operators can also record their geographical location apart from other registrations and scanned data. The availability of this technology to include the route locations enchances the capabilities and analyses of logistic moves throughout the world.
