4 Ways to Enhance Track and Trace Efficiency with Fixed Industrial Scanners

Maintaining a consistent distribution process that efficiently tracks and traces assets helps meet rising customer expectations. To accurately track and trace assets, warehouses need trusted decoding performance that can automatically and flawlessly track items from production through distribution. That’s why businesses are turning to industrial scanners that are proven to enhance visibility and asset tracking. According to new studies, nine out of 10 decision-makers will seek outside resources to help identify and execute warehouse automation solutions within five years, and over 90% will equip workers with mobile devices. Studies also suggest that nine in 10 warehouse decision-makers expect to use more sensor-based technologies like fixed industrial scanners. Therefore, to keep up with these rising trends and customer demands, distributors should choose to implement fixed industrial scanning solutions that can track and trace assets through the distribution process. Without sufficient levels of asset tracking in your business, operations could suffer from inaccurate inventories, slower shipments, and ultimately reduced customer satisfaction.
