Apparel Tags in SIMMS 2018

[This question was submitted by a desperate clothier a while back]
A great many businesses selling apparel want more data on their product tags, whether they sell shoes, t-shirts or in this case, jackets. The modern science of barcoding usually solves this challenge for them by printing off SKU numbers, which allow for multiple bits of information to be combined within the SKU.

For example, MAJAN is a possible section of a SKU number that provides two characters for the manufacturer’s name (MA for Marshall), two characters for the product (JA for jacket) and one character for material (N for nylon). In addition to NRF (National Retail Foundation) codes, manufacturer’s lot information can appear on the tag (such as 01-BK-L, which represents style 1, color black and size large) and many such barcode labels (tags) can be formatted to contain almost any information the seller requires.

One example produced for the person who asked the question is as follows:

Tag for customer's jacket

In it, the customer wanted the item price, size and color information, SKU info and the item description, and that’s precisely what she got, in the layout style she needed. SIMMS Inventory Management software uses Crystal Reports to edit the content and design of the barcodes to fit dozens of industry-standard barcode tags, and customization can go beyond the established list to suit any company’s size and layout needs.

Contact KCSI today to learn more about how the details you want on your price tags can be added with speed and ease if you use SIMMS as your barcoding/price tagging solution.
