2D bar codes are becoming increasingly popular across a wide range of
industries for several reasons. Some enterprises have a desire to
capture large amounts of data, despite space constraints, while others
are being required to read 2D bar codes due to government regulations
or supplier mandates. And an even larger group of enterprises simply
have the desire to leverage emerging trends that require area-imaging
technology today, with no need to purchase additional scanning hardware.
Enterprises that recognize the importance of upgrading to area-imaging
scanners are unwilling to accept a decline in scan performance.
They are also looking for a solution that is capable of reading traditional
paper-based bar codes, as well as barcodes found on alternative
mediums, such as mobile phone screens.
