Currently some of our FL variants have bar codes on their products and we have seen an increase in requests from our European markets and production rooms for barcodes on products. Bellow are some benefits of having bar codes.
The immediate affect of bar codes would be seen in Digital Fulfillment and in store at the till point increasing product traceability and speed of sale at the till point.
Visibility of stock in shops, bar coded items would improve stock take and allow shops and production rooms to run an inventory control system of their own and increase the accuracy of ordering. Things like click and collect would be more viable or self check out. Recalls would also be more efficient.
I've also attached a mock up of labels with bar codes, we can push the limitations of the size of the bar code to make it as discreet as possible.
With a possible new label roll out along side the MOLO copy it would be the ideal time to implement these bar codes I've also been assured our till systems are suitable for bar codes and would be a case of a USB scanner plugged in.
Moving forward with this idea we'll be raising it in next weeks meeting, I'll be sure to keep you all updated on the progress! - Danika
