Barcode Scanners

Also known as a barcode reader, barcode scanner is a electronic device that captures the data that is stored in printed barcodes. Unlike mobile scanning computers that serve as their own host, barcode scanners must be linked to a host computer to transfer the captured data.

To sum up having a 2D barcode scanner should be preferred as they can read both 1D and 2D barcodes. Another advantage of 2D scanners is that they can also read damaged or poorly printed barcodes.

Wireless Vs Corded barcode scanners

They offer a lot more freedom to roam while staying connected to Bluetooth. It allows you to move the scanner around inventor rather than bringing your inventory to your scanner.
