  4. 4. BarcodeIntroductionBarcodes are a set of machine-readable parallel bars varying in width, height or spacing,encoding information according to a symbology. The mapping between messages andbarcodes is called a symbology.Barcodes provide detailed information on key aspects of the item sold, enabling sales activityto be executed quickly. Barcodes provide accurate data. Scanning the barcode makes data entry faster. Manual entry error can be avoided. This in turn helps in quick billing, stock taking, physical stock verification, etc.In Shoper 9, Barcodes can be generated for items that do not have it or as per specificrequirements of customer.Tags can be printed centrally at Head Office, having more control over the printing process orprinted at the store or printed at the distribution points, if the stores are spread across thegeography.Shoper 9 supports the designing of a barcode template and printing of barcode labelsaccording to user specification, thus making the process simple. Flexibility in selecting theinformation to be printed and the ability to configure for different types of stationery andprinters using these features makes barcode printing affordable and convenient.Barcode design for thermal printers is done collectively by the Shoper support personnel/partner, retailer and the printer vendor. For standard printers the barcode design can be doneby Shoper support personnel/ partner or retailer. 1

For example, while designing barcode for watches the size of the label shouldbe small, yet, it has to accommodate all the information.
