Inflow Inventory Activation Code Serial Number: Tips and Tricks

Creating your own custom codes is pretty simple and cheap. All you need is a computer, some software or font packs, a scanner, and a label printer. Once you have your setup, the costs are about the same whether you choose to create 100 barcodes or 1000. It just becomes more of a time investment on your part. This is a great option for smaller shops, or if you just need barcodes to help manage inventory.

Hi Cal, your barcode can include letters if you use something like our Archon Code39 barcode: -39-font-archon-free-barcode/. The choice of including letters or numbers is really up to your particular business, as the letters and numbers are all the same to the scanner (it reads them as a total number of characters).

Thank you for the succinctly written informative article on how to create bar codes. I have a query which i hope you will be able to resolve. I have a data base of Customer account numbers. For bar code purposes my sequence will include few digits in addition to the Customer account numbers to identify product scheme, brand etc. How do i go about getting my bar code data to correspond one to one with the existing Customer account numbers so that on scanning the bar codes, I will be able to get the associated Customer account number.

Hi I work at an large airport car park in the uk . We can have up to 17000 cars here at any one time . Our programme starts when we create a booking . This will give us a ref number example. YBMSB010000 All refs are YB Customer initials. MSB Number automatically increases every time a new booking gets created then creates a one off barcode for this customer . We create other adhoc labels to show were key or car is moved to.

Hi, Thank you for the very helpful topic and explanation. I have question and would appreciate your answer. I am a bit wounder how does the ean dode works with the gift cards. The same code is used for a particular gift card. How the used gift card is marked as used one. How the store knows that that specific gift card is used while all the cards have the same code number?

Hi we are a manufacturing company (food industry). I wanted to know if the data is stored and then the barcode is generated or if we generate the barcode and then save the data. I wanted to save a lot of data like batch number, production date, expiry date, product name, and size in a single code.

Setting up a barcode system can dramatically increase your inventory accuracy. Having barcodes on your items makes them instantly readable to a computer paired with a scanner. It lets your computer do all the heavy lifting for you!

Using barcodes allows you to process your inventory much faster than any other manual method. Think of the length of most universal product codes (UPCs), which are 12 characters or more. You could type those numbers into your system, or you could activate a scanner with one press of your finger and have the computer do the typing for you.

A good barcode system has a two-fold advantage: it increases your own inventory accuracy, and it also dramatically decreases the time a customer spends at checkout. A customer will have a better first impression if you can quickly and easily process their purchase using a scanner system, as opposed to waiting while you manually type codes into a system at checkout.

In its simplest form, a barcode is just a picture that represents numbers, text, or both. This picture can be read by a scanning device and the information is almost instantly transmitted to a computer.

Hi, I want to create a bar code inventory system for my small business (selling piece items). My entire inventory will consist of apx 125 products. I plan to create bins for storage of like items. Bar Code each bin (containing 25 items) and sell from the bins. Need computer connectivity for inventory control.

We are looking for a barcode system that will allow us to weigh our product when received, track it through our processing system, place it in inventory once complete, then remove it from inventory using QuickBooks software once it is sold at the register of through invoicing to a wholesale customer in large quantities. We look to be up and running by the end of August and would like to have a system in place as ASAP.

Hi. I hope that you can help with my brainstorm! I am a board member of a not-for-profit which sends out a request for donation to a specific universe of individuals and businesses. Each are identified with a unique set of numbers. When responses come in with donations, we log those responses into our database(very important to have this information for our purposes). It seems to me that if a barcode were assigned to each of those unique number sets, when responses(donations) are received we could save a lot of time by simply scanning the barcode which would transmit that information to our excel spreadsheet. Does that seem reasonable? How labor intensive is the front end setup ( /- 12,000) entries? What is a reasonable expectation of start up cost if this is a viable effort? Thanks for any input you can provide.

In order to do deeper tracking, you could use serial numbers to track on a per-product basis. So you could tell that a particular slab of fiberglass was produced on a certain day, and that it was delivered to this particular customer.

We need a barcode that populates the weight of an item as well as the serial number, so in other words when we scan we want it to populate the serial number in one field and weight into another. Is that possible?

I run a warehouse for a construction and plumbing company. They have lots of extra plumbing fittings and inwant to come up with a barcode system so I know how many items I have of each plumbing fitting. And then my boss is looking to take that inventory and put it in quick books. Is that a possibility?

I am looking for a system that I can use to keep an inventory and location of electrical parts. I want for all of the workers to be able to see what there is in the warehouse and be able to use their phone iPhone as well as Android to read the bar code when an item is taken from the warehouse. Will your system do this???

We are a trucking/transport compony, we are reviewing the process of using barcodes to insure we ship the right product to the correct customer. We receive capital equipment t (cranes, bodies, trucks) from many different manufactures and store them in our yards until scheduled to ship. We have on occasion shipped the wrong unit to the wrong customer due to inadvertently reading the serial number incorrectly. The inventory is not entered into a inventory data base due to product is staged for outbound transit. This briefly describes our situation, will a barcode system for serialized equipment (from manufacturer) insure the driver- yard personnel load the correct equipment to the correct customer? Not sure how the process would work

I am a member of a co-op art gallery. I am urging the members to adopt barcodes to increase accuracy. Can we set up a system that will identify each sale by artist, and that artists product number and price?

Customers send a number of different products for refurbishment. This means that each customer order has different items to be processed. I would like to itemize the customer order/with a job ticket. The job ticket has x-number of items, e.g. 10 items, these will be individually coded and distributed in the factory for refurbishment. I want to make sure that the 10 items of my customer order/job card will be counted before they are coded and hit the factory floor. The job now has to stay open until while WIP, basically waiting for the items to be returned, upon their return the will be decoded and should be allocated to the original customer order. Only when all items are returned the job can be closed and returned to the client. Can this be handled within standard barcode inventory software?

You can assign serial numbers and lot numbers to any outbound or inbound document, and its posted item tracking entries are displayed in the related item ledger entries. You perform the work in the Item Tracking Lines window.

Items with serial or lot numbers can be traced both backwards and forward in their supply chain. This is useful for general quality assurance and for product recalls. For more information, see How to: Trace Item-Tracked Items.

In simple processes, the inventory items already carry serial or lot numbers, for example assigned during the put-away, and these numbers are automatically transferred through all outbound warehouse activities without interaction by warehouse workers.

In special situations for serial- or lot-numbered inventory, specific serial or lot numbers are defined on the source document, such as a sales order, which the warehouse worker must respect during the outbound warehouse handling. This may be because the customer requested a specific lot during the order process. When the inventory pick or warehouse pick document is created from an outbound source document where serial or lot numbers are already defined, then all fields in the Item Tracking Lines window under the inventory pick are locked for writing, except the Qty. to Handle field. In that case, the inventory pick lines specify the item tracking numbers on individual take and place lines. The quantity is already split into unique serial or lot number combinations because the sales order specifies the item tracking numbers to ship.

When you work with serial and lot numbers, Dynamics NAV calculates availability information for lot and serial numbers and shows it in the various item tracking windows. This lets you see how much of a lot or serial number is currently being used on other documents. This reduces errors and uncertainty caused by double allocations.

In the Item Tracking Lines window, a warning icon is shown in the Availability, Lot No. or Availability, Serial No. field if some or all of the quantity you have selected is already being used in other documents or if the lot or serial number is not available. 2ff7e9595c
