Barcode scanners can save you time when managing your inventory. The process works by assigning a "barcode" to an item, this is basically a unique number that when printed forms a series of parallel black lines. When the barcode scanner "scans" the barcode it registers the unique number which in turn pulls up the item. The saving in time occurs since you don't need to manually enter in the item details in order to search for it on your stock list, you just scan and it comes up. For every item you scan you'll save an average of 5 seconds, multiply 5 seconds by several hundred items scanned in a day, then again in a week and over a year and you'll save a substantial amount of time.
