Minimize Supply Chain Disruption with Advanced Technologies

From raw material to finished goods, the supply chain industry realizes the power of real-time visibility. The COVID-19 outbreak has brought new realities to light that, just a few months ago, seemed unthinkable. Social distancing, along with frequent cleaning of technology devices, hands, and surfaces is the new norm. Now more than ever before, the industry is showcasing resourcefulness, turning to advanced technologies to help their workers minimize close-contact scenarios.

Technology, including extended range barcode scanners, is just one device essential workers are relying on to keep up with consumers’ needs during the current COVID-19 outbreak. In this blog post, we outline three reasons to invest in extended range scanners.

  1. Speed – Speedy scanning means increased productivity and overall efficiency. Most operations need to be completed ‘ASAP, extended range barcode scanners are vital time savers. Also, extended range scanners scan sequentially, meaning that the operator can hold down the trigger to identify multiple items.
  2. Insightful operation – Essential workers can stay in place and still capture barcodes as far as 70 feet away –and as close as 3 inches. The precision of aiming technology makes it easy to pick and scan just the code needed.
  3. Resilience- Rugged scanners are ready for your most extreme environments. Most rugged scanners offer the maximum drop specification for this device category, able to handle the impact of a 6.5 ft./2 m drop to concrete. If devices are exposed to dust, mud, grease or even a spilled beverage, they will continue to operate reliably,


Utilizing extended range scanners is a critical driver behind a reliable supply chain. If you want to get more done in less time, the SMS Group is here for you.
