Our church food pantry is trying to figure out the best way to keep track of what is in there. We have several people operating it (the church office goes in during off hours if there is a family in need) and we are trying to come up with a system to give us an alert if we are low on something.
We've thought of using a upc scanner to make an inventory and keep it updated....the church office can scan and send the data to us and we can make purchases as needed (we have some money for this). The techies in our group think this is great......others think its a waste of money. Has anybody had experience with a scanner? We're small but our numbers are growing steadily every week as more and more people tap out their resources.
