Collection Studio 4.72
[ release date: March 31, 2016 ]
Barcode support in Collection Studio
A barcode is a machine-readable representation of information (usually dark ink on a light background to create high and low reflectance which is converted to 1s and 0s). Originally, barcodes stored data in the widths and spacings of printed parallel lines, but today they also come in patterns of dots, concentric circles, and text codes hidden within images. Barcodes can be read by optical scanners called barcode readers.
The Benefits of Bar Coding: Timely and accurate information means better business decisions, accurate inventory, improved purchasing and quality control, monitor work in process and reduced data entry. Barcode scanning is 30,000 times more accurate and 10 times faster than manual data entry, therefore reduce costs, higher productivity and Higher Profits!
Feature since CS 2.46.
