Barcode scanner and software

Looking for a wireless barcode scanner and software solution.

I need it to read  a quantity barcode and do some simple math.

Simple / durable / reliable is what I need.

Any suggestions would be helpful!

Thanks

It this for inventory? Maybe something a programmable portable memory scanner is what you are looking for. For printing barcodes, maybe Label Software is what you are looking for.

We use bartender for printing labels and barcodes.

We want to put a quantity label (barcode and human readable) on our boxes that go on a pallet so we can scan each barcode and it counts the quantity and we get a total.

So it's pretty simple.

Maybe use a "smart" scanner with the software running on the scanner itself or use a wireless scanner with software sitting on a PC close by.

Thanks
