A barcode reader or barcode scanner is a device that can read manufacturer’s bar code labels. When the barcode scanner’s laser starts picking up a bar code label (UPC for example), it translates the black and white lines of the bar code into the numbers and letters that make up the stock number of the item. It then transmits that stock number to the computer just as if you had typed the number on the keyboard. Obviously typing numbers in all day would be time-consuming and error-prone, which is why barcode scanners are considered an indispensable and worthwhile tool for the retail setting.

The purpose of a barcode scanner is to save time and increase accuracy while processing transactions. Barcode readers help you serve customers efficiently and effectively, reduce errors in inventory and pricing, save staff time, and reduce costs.
