GS1 India, itself is not clear in providing guidance to Indian industry on barcoding. Guidance document prepared by them has been changed twice and thus leaving industry in very confused state. Joint meeting of Pharmexcil ,GS1 India and Indian Industry representatives was scheduled with Government in January and February this year to discuss issues but efforts of industry went in vain. Pharmexcil is also not taking responsibility in addressing barcode related issues of industry.
Sundaram Technologies have a simple and effective solution to comply with the barcoding norms. The Generalize Solution for Barcoding is not at all possible as most of the solution provider is offering in market.
Following are the Key Factors which must be considered while taking decision to purchase barcoding solutions:
1. Volume of Production
2. Skilled Staff
3. Total Project cost
4. Consumable cost
5. After Sales Service
6. Software Application and possibilities of integration with Companies IT Environment [Future Scope]
7. Solution Provider must be an IT Company, so future updates/changes as per government law must be easily deployed.
8. Barcoding must utilize in ware house management and ERP application
9. Application supplier must have Online and SMS tracking capabilities for future, so if government don't take any decision in barcoding, a company can get some output of this all expanses in terms of product security, tracking and duplication.
We advise all the companies who is in search of a good and genuine solution that, the barcoding norms of government is not only just printing and pasting barcode on product but effective tracking and database management is also important and an IT Company can only takes this kind of projects to take you far in future.
