Every manufacturer should be familiar with the various codes that are to be printed on their items. Barcode technology was developed to make inventory work less difficult, automatically keep track of sold items and send them to a database where you can review them. If items are missing, one can infer that the item has been stolen, so in turn it can help you assess whether or not security needs to be improved.
But as the years progressed, regular one-dimensional (1D) barcodes no longer represented the only code that manufacturers could use. Two dimensional (2D) codes such as QR code were introduced and used by a number of industries afterwards. So as a goods manufacturer, it's important to know what makes these two different, and what applications for your business can be taken from it. Take a look at all you need to know about those codes.
