What’s the difference between Barcoding & RFID?
We get asked this a lot, but 9 times out of 10 what they really want to know is, “Which technology is better?” Truth is, both RFID and barcoding offer outstanding efficiencies in the warehouse. The real question is, “Which technology is right for my application?”

This month’s blog offers insight into both to give you a better idea of the direction you may want to take for your particular requirements. Read this month’s blog to learn more about the strengths of each.

Optimize your Warehouse in 2020 
By now you’re probably well aware of Microsoft’s plan to end support on it’s CE and Embedded Handheld operating systems. Once these deadlines hit (January 2020) users will no longer be able to receive direct support from Microsoft. This isn’t a deal breaker on its own, but what you should be concerned about is the vulnerability of your systems. Without support, there are no updates; without regular updates you expose your devices, networks and users to security failures and compliance risks.

Updating your system is no small task. At Taylor Data we have the expertise to help you plan and execute the changes needed to keep your systems secure. Contact us today to set up a Systems Assessment and we can make recommendations to save you time and money.
What is the difference between 1D & 2D barcodes?   
First, there are visible differences between one-dimensional (1D) barcodes and two-dimensional (2D) barcodes. 1D codes were invented first so they are more common and usually found on consumer goods, appearing as a bar of horizontal lines. They hold a small amount of data (~24 characters) otherwise they’d be really long codes. Made up of different shapes and dots that encode the data, 2D barcodes can hold about 2000 characters and still be a small-sized code. You’ll find 2D codes in manufacturing and warehouse applications for that very reason. 

Durable devices like Honeywell’s Granit industrial handheld scanner or CK65 mobile computer are capable of reading both 1D and 2D barcodes and have the responsiveness and accuracy needed to keep workers productive with little downtime.
