Technology
Interlink Technologies is Information Technology that utilizes Barcode Technology. Barcodes have become a standard in the warehouse industry and provide an excellent means to gather, track and manage information about inventory. Scanning the barcode opens the door to reveal everything associated with the inventory – lot number, expiration date, receive date, production date, who touched the inventory, QC requirements, environmental requirements, etc. Audits and recalls can be a nightmare without the help of IT. Warehouse Link easily manages audits, recalls and cycle counts. Because inventory information requirements vary from one item to another, Warehouse Link eases the complicated task of gathering and tracking the various pieces of information by using prompts and forced input.
