Product Identification Data

2D barcodes allow for new possibilities for stock management right through the supply chain to the customer. The 2D barcode could store expiry dates, batch codes or storage requirements for perishable goods. For durable goods - details of the make, model, serial number and service tags.

This deeper level of information can also be accessed by the customer as they can now use their camera phone to access opposed to any specialised equipment.

The product data could also include dimension data (height, width, length, volume, weight) that could aid warehouse efficiency of stock handling. Combine this with a warehouse map that includes information such as current shelf weight and space data to maximise the storage capacity of a warehouse.
