POS Backend Module
Barcode technology has become so widespread and is a valuable choice for businesses looking to improve efficiency, reduce overhead and provide better data.
This eliminates the possibility of human error. A barcode scan is cost-effective, fast and reliable, and takes infinitely less time than entering data by hand. So using a barcode system reduces human efforts. Since one barcode can be used for inventory and pricing information, it is possible to quickly obtain data on both. They provide fast, reliable data for a wide variety of applications.
We use this Barcode technology in this zb_pos_backend module. In Products, we provide a character field called barcode for each product. A barcode scanner scans the black and white elements of a barcode by illuminating the code with a red light, which is then converted into matching text.
This Barcode field holds the barcode value of each product. This barcode would be a word or alphanumeric sequence. In the following screenshot, the product MADRID BEIGE LEATHER’s barcode is 0437552222428.
In POS -> Orders, the first field called Product holds the scanned character from the barcode by the scanner. The product is added to the product’s lines based on the search by this barcode character. Whenever we scan this barcode and write this to product field, it automatically searches the product by using this barcode. If the scanned barcode match with any of the product’s barcode in the list of products, and that products will be added to the product’s line.
In the above screenshot, the scanned barcode is 0437552222428, and it’s the barcode of the product MADRID BEIGE LEATHER and this product with its details will be added to the product’s line.
