Barcode scanners have evolved over the years to provide specific features required for any environment and application. Unlike barcode mobile computing devices, barcode scanners can be much simpler to install and deploy and offer powerful wired as well as highly portable wireless options. Barcode readers are functionally rich and provide many great features that help your business or organization streamline your workflow.
There are now more options than ever before to choose from. To select the right scanner, it's important to answer some basic questions.
Where will the device be used? Is it a rugged or harsh environment?
These are just a few of the questions that need to be answered before deciding which barcode scanner works best for you. Our guide below gives you a little more information on each barcode scanner type available.
