As the Barcode and Labelling industry continues to become more and more dynamic and much more a part of everyday life for the individual as well as an essential tool for manufacturers and retailers, choosing the most appropriate supplier seems to be even more complex for the business manager than it once was.
Barcode Research by VDC
Research by VDC recently found that there are four main areas of concern that all business managers must take into account:
- The optimum equipment and products for individual work environments
The survey showed that price is not always the first concern. Astute business managers are aware of the fact that variables such as investing in quality equipment that will compliment in-house processes can only lead to long term benefits even if initial outlay is higher.
- Cutting edge product Quality
In making an initial investment the buyer must be sure that he is buying quality equipment as well as the most up to date technology
- Ease of hardware use
Complex equipment is likely to lead to training needs for employees and so incurring greater cost to overall processes
- Competitive prices
Whereas this is obviously the ultimate priority it can only be taken into account with other essential variables
- A robust maintenance and support system
As the world of barcodes become all dancing and more complex it is important there is a support system in place for clients to use
