RSS bar codes pass a test.
"Based on the results of the Phase 0 test, it does not appear that RSS bar codes show a significant impact on scan performance. Scanner type and equipment age appear to have a more notable effect on scan time," says Joan Wyndrum, vice president of North Plainfield, N.J.-based Pinpoint Data, L.L.C. Consequently, Wyndrum says the JICC will proceed with the finalization of the RSS Specification and begin the next steps in the implementation process.
"Once the RSS Specification is finalized and approved by the industry, then POS vendors can begin the process of creating code for their scanners," adds Jane Michels, president of J. Michels Consulting in Bloomington, Ind. Full test results can be found online at www.Pinpoint-Data.com/RSSTest0.
