Certainly organizations have taken advantage of Bar Code Scanning applications for years now and typically through more historically expensive, ruggedized or semi-ruggedized hand held hardware.
Like with many things when price and complexity drop - the ability to take advantage of technology in new and interesting ways opens up and so is the case for Bar Code related applications.
What has changed...
With GoCanvas integrating Bar Code scanning into one of any prebuilt or built from scratch mini applications has never been easier and with the average application taking less than 30 minutes to build from scratch it has never been faster. Plus you can move your bar code scanning applications to your smartphones and ruggedized hardward all with a push of a button.
