Barcode capture benefits

Compare, analyse and review data in a structured format 

Access to data in a structured, readable format gives businesses the ability to compare results, analyse trends and importantly, make well-informed business decisions. With a 100% manual verification process, you can be assured that all data exported and transferred to you has gone through numerous quality checking procedures.

Save valuable resources & money

Outsourcing your data capture service to Storetec will save your business valuable resources such as staff time, training and investment in barcode readers. We have the capacity to digitise high volumes of forms and surveys quickly and efficiently enabling us to transfer captured data on a daily, weekly or fortnightly basis.

Barcode scanning solutions

Barcodes are used by a variety of organisations across a range of industries. For example:

  • Patient ID barcodes are used to identify all associated medical records relating to that individual. For example: blood tests, medical history and allergies.  

  • Examination script barcodes are used to identify each candidate’s personal information, the awarding body and details of the exam undertaken.

  • Airlines, freight and travel companies all use barcodes to uniquely identify documents such as shipment orders and domestic flight tickets.

Guaranteed quality assurance

Barcodes printed on the first of several pages can also identify which of the following pages belong to that specific document or batch. When digitising such documents, we can apply custom alerts which identify if any pages are missing or are incorrectly placed within that batch.

This facilitates the quality assurance process and ensures data extracted is 100% accurate.

Capturing data from forms and surveys for quick analysis

In addition to capturing data hidden away on barcodes, we can also capture text-based or handwritten information presented on forms, surveys or any other type of structured document you have. 

Using advanced OCR technologies, we can capture and upload data into your required file format, for example, XLS, CSV or HTML. We can also scan the paper originals into an electronic PDF for future reference.
