Automating MES Labor Entry - Bar Code, Swipe Card, Touch Screen?

I worked with Andrew Dancan at Epicor. He programmed some time savings
steps coupled with bar codes to make the process easier.

We need to to go to a more user friendly (and accurate) system for MES
data entry on the shop floor. Keyboard and mouse are not getting it
done for us. 'Would appreciate any suggestions as to what
technologies have worked out best for shop floor entry (non-
handheld). We are on 8.03305E running test environment in 8.03.404.

Any suggestions or experiences would be greatly appreciated!
