Barcode Capture

Barcode & QR Capture Services 

Barcodes are used by a variety of businesses to enable secure automatic identification on paper documents. At Storetec, we've invested in specialist readers enabling us to capture the information from any barcode you have, offering businesses the complete data capture package.

We can scan any type of barcode you have, whether it’s a Data Matrix, QR Code or Aztec. Unlike linear barcodes, QR codes can hold a range of binary data including images, website addresses and various other information. With the ability to hold hundreds of characters, barcodes are extremely useful for storing huge amounts of data hidden to the human eye.

Barcode Scanning Solutions

Barcodes are used by a variety of organisations spanning a range of industries: 

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

  • Examination script barcodes can identify the candidate’s personal information, the awarding body and details of the course.

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

Quality Assurance

A barcode 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.
