Barcode Manager

This section explains all processes required to manage your barcodes, where a barcode is an identification code relating to a product and a set of SKUs. Barcodes are most commonly used in conjunction with the Point of Sale (POS) to scan an item to add it to the order or to receive new inventory. In addition, you can search for products and SKUs using the barcode identifier in many areas of the CORESense Back Office.
