Inventory management for small business is often an after thought. Find out why this critical step can save you some serious money and how you can implement the latest technologies for almost without a massive budget. This step by step guide shows you how we manage 1000's of SKU's everyday without any errors. For more information visit http://www.davidhay.org/qr-codes-quick-easy-inventory-tracking/ Let’s get this out of the way: the subject I’m going to cover today is a polarizing one. Like with all topics, some people will be on the bandwagon, on the fence, or dragging their feet kicking and screaming; this particular subject attracts discussions of the kicking and screaming variety. I’m talking about QR codes. There are many who think that the QR code is dead, and they wouldn’t be wrong. We could write an entire blog post about why QR codes suck, but they’re still the fastest way to transmit large amounts of information. That’s what makes it such a great platform on which to base your asset management and inventory tracking. ======================== Subscribe to my channel https://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=DavidHaydotOrg ======================== I offer professional consulting services starting at $80 per hour.

great vid. Question if I may, I run a small ebay.com store online. The inventory and the listing part of my small business take up so much time. Is there a way that I could scan the barcode of my products and get that information on to a spreadsheet in one click. for example when I click the scanner on a product and I have my computer open to just a web search it will pop up the item with all the information and cost. when I scan the barcode on to my spreadsheet all I get is numbers. help if you can. thank you.

I have been using the system that Supply Insight currently offers. The hardware is affordable and the application is simple and easy to use. Even a small business owner can now harness the power of RFID to help with inventory management, and it starts at less than $3k. www.supplyinsight.com

Inventory management should always be one of your priorities. Research from the IHL group shows that the worldwide retail economy is worth a staggering $14.5 trillion. However, this figure could actually be substantially larger. Poor inventory management is one of the issues that stand in its way. The same report mentions that companies worldwide lose $634 billion a year from items that aren’t in stock and $472 billion from overstocking items. Combined, this leaves us with an astonishing figure of $1.1 trillion. Lost due to inventory management issues. Inventory management tends to be one of those tasks that online retailers palm off to another member of staff, or leave to the last minute, but if you let your inventory get out of control, you could find yourself losing money. Things can get complicated when you start selling on more than one channel, and online sellers encounter problems when managing their stock such as: -overselling products when something is bought on another sales channel -mistakes and inconsistencies due to human error -having to dedicate more time than they’d like to managing their inventory when they could be spending time focusing on other aspects of the business Like these guys have, think about implementing inventory management software tools like inventory or order management software to avoid disappointing your customers and keep your stock organised and consistent between your sales channels.

Looking to use QR code on a item that's to be delivered and installed. I want my employee to be able to scan the QR code and have a blueprint or layout plan for the current project pop up to show him where it needs to go and a picture to assure he/she is installing the correct item. (possibly with a link to a you tube video giving installation instructions) Or to notice an item missing and be able to look at the blueprint or layout for the current project and click on the item diagram missing to order it from the warehouse.. does this exist ?

This is perfect but how do I start barcoding my products?
Michael Herrick (9 days ago)
Api, this tool can print and then scan for you: https://stockroom.app
Steve Tallent (16 days ago)
Not sure what you are asking, but you can create your own algorithm for codes like F-12345 and then get a barcode font to make it into a scannable barcode. You can incorporate that into your labels or print separate labels that are affixed to products.

Great video! Inventory management tends to be one of those tasks that online retailers palm off to another member of staff, or leave to the last minute, but if you let your inventory get out of control, you could find yourself losing money. Things can get complicated when you start selling on more than one channel, and online sellers encounter problems when managing their stock such as: - overselling products when something is bought on another sales channel - mistakes and inconsistencies due to human error - having to dedicate more time than they’d like to managing their inventory when they could be spending time focusing on other aspects of the business - These issues can lead to disappointed customers and a loss of sales, so dedicating some time to improving the way your stock is handled could benefit you in the long term. QR codes are a really cool and novel idea! If we can be a bit cheeky we've just released an inventory management app to work with a our stock management software. If you're interested, check out our channel. We'd love to hear your opinion on it.

Hey, why wouldn't you use NFC stickers and scanners? Wouldn't that be faster and more convenient?
Michael 732 (2 years ago)
+icesvenni I considered using NFC\RFID stickers, but we concluded that the cost and overhead was to high AND not may phones support the NFC stickers. Just our process.

Hi David, Can you please share the url application you using behind to keep the data.. i am looking for something like this but barcode scanner alone will not do the complete job.

+Nk Patel Sorry but the back-end of the system we are running we have built in house and we can't just give you the keys to the kingdom . Happy Coding
Kamal Benjamin (3 years ago)
Hey there, great video and I really like this idea. Could you share with us more information regarding the interface that you developed as well as how you assigned the UPC codes to QR codes? It would give others a great example to learn from. Thanks
David Hay (2 years ago)
+Kamal Benjamin in the back-end of our software you can manually input or scan any bar-code or UPC number. Once the system reads it you can store it and apply it to a certain product. You can then name the product and generate a QR code for it in the back end . Once that is done you can assign the Qr code to Multiple UPC codes for the same product . When the QR code or any of the UPC numbers associated with that QR code and product are scanned it pulls up the assigned product to mark off in inventory on the front end. Hope This Helps, Sorry for the late response
Dear Hay, what is your business?

The miners are interested in finding a nonce which will create a hash with certain characteristics. Lastly, they have to find a random value that they included in the header, which makes the computed hash over that header a value below a particular target. In other words, they do not have to agree to change the protocol. Though there are a few gold diggers attempting to fill their pockets and certain projects that aren`t viable and shouldn`t be encouraged in any way. For users running a complete node, it is a fairly painless procedure to upgrade the software to the newest version. The process of locating a new block to extend the blockchain is known as mining. Proof-of-Work systems utilize cryptographic hashing algorithms to create the action of mining a block a complicated computation. Our software is totally incompatible with altcoins. Changes and modifications to how that it works need to be approved by consensus and every CPU gets a vote. To start with, it`s essential to realize that hardware wallet users control entirely their private keys. Whether you`re bullish or bearish on Bitcoin Gold, you ought not lose your coins as a result of careless mistakes! On the 1 hand, it may result in making a coin that solves all the pending issues. There`s no currency or digital asset named Bitcoin Core. Bitcoin Cash increases the range of transactions that may be processed per block. You could send any quantity of money, any place in the Earth, almost at no cost. You`ve made some great money already on the market, but you want more. For a wealthy individual, BTC`s price premium may be viewed as a plus. For someone without lots of money, BCH`s low price may look like a great deal for Bitcoin. If you have some concerns about the worth of Bitcoin after all forks, you need to be ready for a drop. The distinction is that not all of these suffer the chain split. The primary problem is Bitcoin imposes a hard limit on the magnitude of a block, the location where transaction information becomes stored. The end result is many straightforward wallets, called SPV wallets and very commonly found on your phone, will be quite confused about which chain is Bitcoin. In Bitcoin, the most important reason is known as the network effect.
