What is a barcode scanner application?

Definition

Barcode scanners are commonly found in supermarkets, pharmacies, and other retail stores. Barcode scanners are used to scan and capture the product's barcode, which is then turned into an electronic product identifier (EPC) for use in-store systems. An EPC is a unique number that helps retailers identify products. This barcode scanner application allows you to scan your products for tracking purposes or use them in a business-based inventory management system.
