BRIEF INTRODUCTION:
A barcode is a series of vertical bars and spaces carrying information about the object to which it is attached in a machine readable format. This property of a barcode enables its use as an effective tool for automatic identification and data capture. As opposed to manual data entry, which is tedious and prone to inaccuracies, barcodes enable automatic data capture with 100% accuracy.
A bar code (often seen as a single word, barcode) is the small image of lines (bars) and spaces that is affixed to retail store items, identification cards, and postal mail to identify a particular product number, person, or location. The code uses a sequence of vertical bars and spaces to represent numbers and other symbols. A bar code symbol typically consists of five parts: a quiet zone, a start character, data characters (including an optional check character), a stop character, and another quiet zone.

Benefits of Barcodes
Over two million companies globally, including all major manufacturers, retailers, and online marketplaces use barcodes making it the defacto standards for the retail industry today. This is because they know that barcodes can help them improve their business. Some of the benefits of using barcodes are:

• Provides unambiguous & universal identification of products so no two products in the world would have the same barcode number
• Helps with faster listing of products on e-commerce platforms
• Meets prerequisite to doing business with modern trade retailers
• Facilitates accurate and faster billing at retail billing counters
• Empowers search engines to provide more precise search results, increasing visibility of products online
• Gives an international look and feel to products
• Enables automated data capture with 100% information accuracy. This helps eliminate human errors, offering a reliable way to read encoded information
• Ensures correct consignment dispatches as per customer orders
• Supports accurate real-time stock management for manufacturers/suppliers and retailers
• Helps meet several buyer/regulatory compliance requirements internationally and nationally
• Allows efficient track & trace and recall of all product types (e.g. consumer products, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, food, electronics, alcoholic beverages, etc.) helping ensure patient and consumer safety
• Optimised inventory management – as product packages feature barcodes, businesses can use the technology to maintain accurate control over inventory. For example, warehouses and retailers can scan barcodes when products arrive and leave, to take a record of inventory. Some companies link their inventory control to online portals so that they can instantly update package status.
• Achieve accurate and efficient procurement – since the barcode is a unique key to identify a product (via GTIN), it can be used to identify products without any ambiguity and place accurate orders for them.
