Need for Serial Number management
If you are into an electronic business or running an electrical shop, then managing your inventory will become a tedious job without using a proper label management system. Every item in such business looks physically similar however, is differentiated by certain parameters like design number, model number, serial number, battery number, etc.
For example, you are running a mobile store, when you purchase any smartphones from your vendor; you receive it by certain quantities of a certain brand. Let’s say you purchase a Samsung phone of 5 quantities of the same color from your vendor. When you look at from consumer point of view every phone looks the same by its physical view, color or price. But in the retail business, each of the phones is identified by certain unique attributes like IMEI number, Battery Number, Model Number, etc. that are specified by the phone manufacturing companies.
