The Odoo barcode module helps us to reduce human errors and speed up many processes such as scanning products, and manages many inventory operations.

Here, in inventory, POS and HR the barcode is a linear barcode. There are 2 types of barcodes, one is a linear barcode, and the other is a QR code that contains more data in a smaller area.

Barcode scanner act as a keyboard the input could be incorrect because it depends on the equipment/device we use.

We have learned how to receive purchase orders, and how to send delivery orders using Odoo applications. So, we would like to deliver these processes faster with our barcode scanners. The good news is that barcodes aren’t only used to identify products they can also trigger actions. This way operations like moving items in and out of our inventory become much easier. When packing orders for a client I just need to scan the products, then the barcode that triggers the validation action and the whole thing is packed up in just a few scans. So, let’s look at how to do that right now.
