    Linerless Labeling Solutions with Taken Sensor™ Technology

    November 1, 2018

    Since the introduction of multi-platform POS ecosystems, just-in-time delivery and asset management label printing technology has played a key role in the identification of products to allow easy documentation and management. In industries such as hospitality, companies come under pressure to improve data collection and reduce errors, many are quickly moving away from the traditional pen-and-paper based processes and are investing heavily in technology to increase productivity and efficiency. For example, in areas such as fast food, where its time management and order processing is imperative, staff currently struggle attaching order bills to cups, bags or wrap causing inaccurate data processing and missing orders. This issue is not just confined to hospitality. Retail distribution, logistics and warehouse businesses also have re-occurring issues trying to increase work productivity while printing. Many citing issues attaching different types of invoice labelling to their products. To resolve these issues, BIXOLON has developed a Linerless Labelling solution with B-linerless™ and Taken Sensor™ Technology. Benefits of B-linerless™ ​B-linerless™ is available in two sticky options, B-linerless™ Permanent featuring a permanent adhesive which is similar to traditional liner labels and B-linerless™ Re-stick supporting a removable and repositionable adhesive. It provides: Enhancing work productivity: Providing greater flexibility, linerless labels offer an ecological alternative to traditional label media. Allowing easy-to-use drop-in paper loading, Linerless labelling enables the possibility of providing a label of any length with the ability to still provide a clean cut without label gum build-up.Lower TCO: Removing the waste of silicon backing liner paper originally used in labelling, linerless rolls offer double the number of labels per roll, decreasing the number of roll changes. High Quality: Compatible with BIXOLON’s high-quality printers insures a long time use without jamming errors. Eco-friendly: Eliminating the waste bi-product of silicon liner backing paper, linerless labels help reduce paper waste. Why choose BIXOLON’s linerless labeling solution?Linerless paper typically has a reduced amount of adhesive spread across the media compared to traditional heavy adhesive paper which leave residue on a printer mechanisms and can cause paper jams during continuous printing. To counteract this, BIXOLON has installed Anti-Jam Technology in the SRP-S300. This technology provides special paper path design, an automatic guillotine cutting system with a revolutionary platen roller and sub roller designed with rubber material. Alongside BIXOLON’s Taken Sensor™ Technology which can calibrate this issue and make the linerless system run smoothly and effectively, by limiting linerless label printing until the current label has been removed. With these unique technologies, BIXOLON’s solution is compatible not only light adhesive linerless but also heavy adhesive linerless label printing differently from comparable solutions on the market.For more information visit http://www.bixolon.com/, http://blog.bixolon.com/ or alternatively speak to your local BIXOLON sales representative.

    App Development Selection: Native, Web or Hybrid?

    September 20, 2018

    From Retail to Logistics, Payments to Hospitality, there has been a gradual shift in printing methods. Speed and convenience has seen traditional desktop printers replaced with mobile equivalents. The introduction of tablets and smart devices has led to a whole new industry of APP writers/generators who are reacting to the requirement for mobile applications which need to be tailored to a business’ individual requirements. Thus factoring in the likes of total cost of ownership, device functionality, compatibility and security. With various types of application architectures available, most APPs are generally classified into three main categories: Native, HTML5 and Hybrid. Each of these types of APPs come with their own list of pros and cons which a user needs to consider alongside their current OS environment and how this will affect their business efficiency, strategy, future plans and budgets. Native Applications This type of APP depends on specific development environments such as iOS® or Android® and are built specifically for that operating system. Pros These APPs are easily obtainable via a simple download from the App Store® or Google Play® and are normally instantly ready to use (unless an operating license is required) Native APPs tend to be more stable and secure than other APP types Offline usage is also possible Easy integration with host device features, such as Bluetooth, Camera, WLAN etc. Cons Native APPs are restricted to a particular operating system Development costs are high as each application needs to be tailored to individual operating systems Native app management may be challenging, if any APP changes are required, each change will need to be replicated onto each individual users OS application Native APPs have greatly improved in stability and security attracting the attention of large enterprises in a variety of industries. As a result, native APPs are dominating in business which require high stability and security such as casino billing systems, railway ticketing and lottery systems. BIXOLON provide various native app SDK’s for a variety of operating systems such as Android®, iOS®, Windows®, Linux®, Chrome® and Symbian®. Web Applications Web Applications use multiple programming languages such as CSS, JavaScript and HTML5. This type of APP normally in the format of a webpage. The source of the APP does not belong to the operating system, so can be fluid across all operating systems. Pros Working on all platforms can reduce both development time and costs. Easy maintenance compared to native APPs as there is no registration process via the download host sites Cons Web apps are typically large file sized and data rich HTML5 is not accessible when offline Unable to fully utilize host device functionality These types of applications have become popular is small to mid-sized businesses such as local restaurants and boutique stores for their cost efficiency. And have also gained the attention of larger businesses such as supermarket chains or mobile phone carriers as this type of app can also function as a central management system. BIXOLON provides a Cordova SDK plugin to support this application trend. Hybrid Mobile Applications Hybrid applications utilize a combination of Native and Web development methodologies. A native container is used to develop hybrid apps using CSS, JavaScript and HTML5 programming languages. Hybrid apps are accessible on different operating systems (however the compatibility is lower than HTML5 apps). Pros Hybrid apps are consistent across operating systems By sharing source codes across multiple operating systems environments developers can reduce both time and cost Cons The APP file sizes are large and slow, leading to reduced performance The user experience quality of a hybrid application usually doesn’t match that of a native APP Hybrid applications provide a great number of benefits especially around cost reduction which is extremely attractive to start-up companies or enterprises which have a plan to run and maintain their own application across multiple operating systems. BIXOLON offers an Xamarin SDK which allows apps available in Android and iOS the same performance. With many APP options available, it is up to the customer to access their working environments and strategies when considering which application type to take. BIXOLON printer solutions can support various types of SDKs to fulfil many user’s business environments. To access BIXOLON’s full SDK range, visit the BIXOLON Technical Download page.

    Hospitality EPOS Connectivity

    July 19, 2018

    Hospitality EPOS systems provide businesses with the tools to monitor and control a range of environments from restaurants and bars, to pop-up events. Choosing the right EPOS system for your hospitality business can be an overwhelming task especially if you are looking to move towards Mobile Tablet or Smart Device based software platforms due to flexibility. As technology advances, connectivity has become more crucial for successful EPOS systems. BIXOLON have put together five pointers that you may need to consider when purchasing a new Mobile EPOS (mPOS) System for your Hospitality business: Device connection – When selecting a mobile device the Hospitaliers need to decide how it is going to be connected to the host. Cabled LAN connectivity was always the norm with Wi-Fi being a trusted if not a more expensive means of achieving the same but recent advances in Bluetooth technologies have not only improved reliability but also increased the usable range. Secure login – a secure means of logging in to the system is essential to both employer and employee alike and is integral to the success of the mPOS solution as it provides the accountability that merits the system expense. Simplicity and cost have ultimately led users to rugged and durable devices such as the waterproof Dallas Reader which provides each member of staff with their own unique numerical login and if lost can be easily and quickly replaced – security is maximised as no two keys are the same. Speed of Delivery – technology can be used to speed up the order delivery process – with the right connectivity drinks orders can be sent directly to the IP rated bar thermal and food orders directly to the heat resistant dot matrix kitchen printers ensuring that the customer receives exactly what they have ordered and in a timely manner. With mobile tablet based mPOS that connectivity requires devices like the Bixolon intelligent hub to provide the missing links. Greater Reach – for Alfresco dining the ability to take orders at the table can save the members of staff time by not having to return to a central point each time. The Alfresco dining experience can be further improved by printing receipts at the table when asked – this can be achieved very simply through the use of a belt mounted printer. The latest 80mm mobile printers are small, light and rugged and print the same receipt as conventional desktop printers. Multiple device hosting – multiple device host – full hospitality process achieved by lay away split till / multiple activity requirements. The BIXOLON SRP-Q300H is the only device on the market today that can offer a solution to these five points. It provides ease of connectivity and flexibility helping to create the perfect hospitality mPOS solution. Featuring an intelligent hub (B-gate), connecting the Tablet to a host of USB peripheral devices (Dallas reader, Bar and Kitchen Printers, Customer Display, etc.) via Bluetooth whilst also providing a single charging port. Printing receipts or online orders through a native, web and cloud-based mPOS application with B-gate SDK’s (Software Development Kits). Pairing the printer with its new LCD customer Display (BCD-3000) and a robust steel tablet stand which safely secures up to a 10inch tablet using a locking mechanism to provide a complete the solution.

    Portable Printers in Transport and Logistics

    May 21, 2018

    We’ve all had things delivered after buying online or placing an order at the shops that had to be delivered. The deliveries are sometimes made, and a delivery note printed on the spot using a portable printer that the driver carries. These devices are often linked via mobile telephone technology to the logistics company’s systems for tracking, stock control, and financial reporting. Behind the scenes, though, there is even more mobile printing technology in use. The products in the warehouses are often labelled to note what product it is, where it is stored, and its age. These bits of data are often placed in a barcode that can be printed from a tablet, mobile phone, or any device connected to the local WiFi network. These labels allow the individual object to be tracked throughout its progress, from manufacture to delivery. Another use the mobile printing devices have is to create labels for boxes when there are a few items being packed for shipping. The system will record all that goes into the box via scanners, and can prepare and print off a label (with or without a barcode) to inform the recipient what they’re getting, but also (with barcode) allow for tracking via the use of scanners connected to the mobile phone networks. One of the great advantages to the technology is its flexibility. There are printers that will connect to almost any device. It might be best for some of the team to use mobile phones (iOS, Android, etc. are all compatible). For presentation of information to customers, it may be more useful to connect to an iPad or other tablet. Portable printers are also available for those devices. There are also products that can be used when the actual sales are taking place on the road. For mobile retail businesses such as coffee vans, credit card payments can be taken, receipts taken, and stock noted by having the systems interconnected. All the customer sees is that he has his cup of coffee quickly and easily. But the business has streamlined so many things that the savings in running the business is significant. The main benefit to your business do come in much improved time efficiency. Rather than chasing around trying to find a package in the system, the door-to-door tracking capability allow you to quickly locate it and inform your customer. The more advanced systems even allow the customer to track their packages online. The cost savings in stock management is even more compelling. Manual inventory can be cut back to a great extent. Placing orders for restocking can be automated. Time put into these things can be saved, and time is always very valuable.

    The Ease of Use of Tablet Printers

    March 8, 2018

    Wireless printing from tablet can make the process of ordering thing, taking payment, and printing a receipt quick, easy, and very customer friendly. The first step is to connect the device to your existing network. Getting this done is sometimes challenging, but most devices have software installed to make the process reasonably painless. Just follow the instructions on the screen and have the technical details to hand in order to fill in the fields for security and connection types. Most SME’s use a local area network (LAN) that will network with the available printers and computers. A wireless network will, of course, be needed to enable printing from the tablet. The tablet will connect to the network using its setup options. The process is somewhat different from one brand of tablet to another, but making the connection is usually straightforward. With your tablet in Wi-Fi mode the device will search for the WIFI network signal. Once the network’s signal is identified, just tap on network name on the setup page and tap in the correct login details. Once connected to the network, wireless printing can be accomplished choosing your desired printer from the available networked printers, then simply tap the print button. Adding a portable printer to the mix adds even more flexibility. Many restaurants and retail establishments are now providing their customer-facing staff with a combination of tools that allow them to process the entire transaction at the point of sale. The employees can, with a few taps on a hand-held screen, order products or simply make note of what the customer has in hand and wishes to buy. They can also take payment details and provide a receipt without leaving the point of sale. With all the devices linked into the network, the financial details, stock management information, etc., is all input in real time. The efficiencies this brings to a business are significant. In a restaurant setting, this also makes service faster. The orders can be instantly put up on a screen in the kitchen, allowing for a quicker start to the preparation process. Notification that the order is ready can also be sent to the wait-staffs tablet, hastening delivery of the food (while still hot)! When the bill is presented, payment can be taken as quickly as the customer would like, while still at their table. It all makes for a faster turnaround of tables, which is good for cashflow, but also makes for a better customer experience. Most modern tablets already have software installed that allows for printing. For some older devices, you may need to acquire software to provide a correct interface with your printer. While there may be a small cost for some of these applications, there is usually no additional ongoing cost for printing wirelessly from a tablet. The benefits to businesses that adapt to the use of tablet printers are many. The integration of the entire transactional process with the other systems (delivery, financial, inventory, etc.) brings tremendous efficiency. This allows for much faster decision making as all the data will always be up-to-date. When portable tablet printers are added to the mix, all the efficiencies just mentioned remain in effect, but the added value of better customer service and having hardcopies available is put in place. The businesses that have implemented these technologies have been extremely positive about the results. The business benefits to process improvements, and management capabilities were one aspect. The better customer service and better overall customer experience were also a strong plus. For more information visit http://www.bixolon.com or contact your local BIXOLON sales representative.
