Barcode Software and Expertise

Barcode Experts

Barcodes play a vital role in every aspect of business operations. Across the supply chain, from product identification to logistics to inventory management to point-of-sale transactions, barcodes provide accurate, instantaneous data collection for automated systems. Fox Wyndrum helps its clients identify effective ways to use barcodes to collect and distribute data, containing costs and improving efficiencies.

Fox Wyndrum Associates, Inc. are expert at seamlessly integrating barcode encoding, barcode creation, barcode scanning and barcode decoding technologies into business software applications. Our specialists have years of experience with a wide variety of barcode symbologies including UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN-8, EAN-13, GS1 DataBar, GS1-128, Code 39, Code 128, Code 11, Codabar, Interleaved 2 of 5.

Fox Wyndrum's barcode and data processing knowledge played an integral role in the development of industry standards and protocols. Working with GS1 US, leading retailers and CPG (consumer packaged goods) manufacturers, Fox Wyndrum's experts helped to develop and promote the new standard for CPG coupons entitled North American Coupon Application Guideline Using GS1 DataBar (RSS) Expanded Symbols. This standard is used by manufacturers, retailers, point-of-sale systems developers, coupon processors and redemption agents to implement this industry-changing effort.

Fox Wyndrum's experts advanced the GS1 Coupon DataBar initiative by authoring guidelines to be used by point-of-sale systems developers in interpreting and integrating the GS1 DataBar standard into retail transaction processing systems. These guidelines were subsequently published by the GS1 US to standardize the implementation of the GS1 Coupon DataBar in retail and manufacturer systems in the United States.

Fox Wyndrum's consultants also designed and executed an industry-wide barcode scanning test to measure the impact of the new GS1 Coupon DataBar on retail point-of-sale processing. The effort included creating test data sets, test packages, data collection and reporting.

Fox Wyndrum's consultants are recognized as leading experts in the GS1 Coupon DataBar standard. Joan Wyndrum has twice been awarded the Industry Impact Award by the Association of Coupon Professionals (ACP) for her work with retailers, manufacturers and coupon processors in driving the implementation of the GS1 Coupon DataBar. She has made numerous presentations to industry groups and with Lawrence Fox authored widely-distributed white papers on the subject.
