UPC based method to quickly enter quantity

Teapplix has just released enhancements to our enter quantity screen, to allow you to quickly scan in UPC codes and enter quantity.

Traditionally when you enter quantity, you have to enter or scan in SKU barcode, and fill the quantity column. Some products, however, do not have SKU barcodes. Instead, they have UPC barcode.

We have enhanced our enter quantity screens, such that you have the choice of scanning either the SKU barcode or UPC barcode, either one will lookup and bring up the proper product. All you need to do then is to type in the quantity and your system will be updated.

This affects people using "Teapplix as inventory master" mode. For customers using QuickBooks as inventory master, you enter quantity in QuickBooks and are limited by whatever features that QuickBooks support.

USPS “photographing all mail”

The latest book by Bob Schneider "Data and Goliath", says:

"Through a program called Isolation Control and Tracking, the US Postel Service photographs the exterior, front and back, of every piece of mail sent in the US. That's about 160 billion pieces annually."

Apparently, there are 2 programs, one old and one new:

  • "Mail Covers Program" is on demand, and records the exterior of all "mails" and "parcels". However, this is on-demand and only applied in the numbers like tens of thousands a year.
  • "Mail Isolation Control and Tracking" applies to all letters. (It is not clear if this applies to non-machinable letters or flats, which are hard to automate). Apparently a machine photographs the front and back automatically as a barcode is sprayed automatically onto the letters.

New York Times has a pretty detailed write up about this here:
