Barcode inventory software for faster, error-proof tracking

In manufacturing, efficiency and accuracy are critical. Barcode scanning software makes tracing and tracking your inventory and operations a breeze.

Get a real-time overview of your stock with a barcode inventory system

Barcode inventory management software streamlines your inventory tracking and keeps your shop floor staff and other departments in sync. With Katana, you can scan incoming items and identify what and where your inventory is in seconds.

Easily identify items when receiving, consuming, or counting inventory

When it comes to updating your inventory, barcode scanning is the optimal solution in terms of time and accuracy. Barcode inventory software automates the flow of information from sales to the shop floor, making it easy to identify items and keep track of availability to avoid stockouts.

  • Scan and receive items using a smart device
  • Simplify stocktaking and inventory counting
  • Scan a range of barcodes, including supplier item codes, internally registered barcodes, and batch barcodes

Ensure accuracy with a centralized barcode inventory software

Paper-based inventory tracking and spreadsheets are both time-consuming to work with and prone to human error. As your business expands, you need a live barcode inventory system that can keep up with warehouse operations and give your team accurate tracking data at every production stage.

  • Pick lists with barcodes for improved accuracy
  • Export and print barcodes for label printing, making all physical items machine-readable
  • Track batches and items in the same place using a unified barcode inventory system

Boost efficiency and eliminate wasted time and resources with a live system

Matching physical materials with database items in a machine-readable way has benefits beyond time efficiency at an operational level. Barcode scanning systems allow you to differentiate between similar products, making it possible to track faulty batches, reduce waste, and improve quality assurance.

  • Autogenerate barcodes for batches and items using internal barcodes
  • Use multiple devices to scan barcodes, from USB and Bluetooth scanners to smartphones and tablets
  • Quickly locate items across multiple warehouses, giving all teams access to the same live data
