Symbol is the name of the company which provides excellent bar code products and services to large companies and enterprises. If I am not mistaken, Symbol was recently integrated with the Motorola company.
Symbol has been the leading barcode services provider. The product and bar code equipment made from this company is highly appreciated and well-regarded by most people.
The most famous products from Symbol are probably the Symbol scanners which come in different forms and use.
The Symbol scanners are divided into three groups according to how and where they are used.
1. Industrialized Barcode Scanners
2. Commercialized Barcode Scanners
3. Residential Barcode Scanners
The industrialized barcode scanners are known for its sturdiness.It has the resiliency and power to put up a heavy work load. This type of barcode scanner is ideal for warehouse purposes.
The commercialized barcode scanners are the most widely used bar code scanners. You can see them in schools, institutions, companies, and supermarkets. These barcode scanners can scan both ordinary one-dimensional barcodes as well as ISBNs of published books. It is also used to scan employee’s IDs.
Lastly, the residential barcode scanner is much like the commercialized barcode scanner. Yesterday, barcode scanners weren’t available for home use or small businesses. They were also not as user-friendly. However, today are available for use in any type of businesses (for medical purposes, pharmacy, hospital use, finance and banking and other ordinary inventory use).
Barcode scanners may be placed on a desk. It could also be handheld. It can be wall-mounted. It can be wired or wireless. It can be one-dimensional or two-dimensional. It can work with different operating systems and is usually lightweight for easier use.
Other than the barcode scanners, Symbol has the barcode printers and barcode printing services as well. They also provide different barcode accessories such as stickers and printer’s ink and inventory applications.
