    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.

    Mobile Printers: What You Need to Know

    May 22, 2017

    As consumers demands shift, so too does the technology that businesses use to service them. Whether it be using large computers to take orders in fast food restaurants or handheld devices to take drink orders in a busy cinema, the technology that businesses used five years ago simply doesn’t work in today’s fast moving and customer centric world. Mobile printers are beginning to play an increasingly important part in many businesses. Restaurants use them to provide credit card receipts, pawn shops use them to provide handling of goods receipts and many other businesses rely on them for an array of businesses. For those starting a new business or adopting this technology, understanding what to look for in a mobile printing device is important. With their premium price tags and important role, overlooking even the simplest of specifications could have a significant commercial impact. In this article, we’re following on from our previous guide to thermal printers and will be sharing our insights on choosing the perfect mobile printer for you. We’ll delve into the technicalities of our own devices and explore the benefits of mobile printers when compared to alternatives. What is a Mobile Printer and Why Use Them? Whether working in retail, hospitality, transport or logistics; you will have undoubtedly encountered a mobile printer at some point. They are often found partnered with either a tablet or card reader. Mobile printers do, in most circumstances, utilise ink-based printing. Thermal printing, which is covered further in our previous article, is more common on large label printers. Unlike thermal printing, ink-based printing can achieve a print speed of up to 80mm per second. Furthermore, it can provide a greater variety of colours and high 203dpi print quality in some circumstances. Mobile printers also work perfectly with tablets and smartphones. Our SPP-R400, for example, is compatible with the Apple iOS, Android, Symbian and Windows operating systems. When this compatibility is partnered with its USB, Bluetooth and WiFi support, the possible uses are truly endless. Which Mobile Printer is Right for You? When shopping for a mobile printer, you will be left shocked by the vast variety on offer from a varying selection of manufacturers. Whilst many of these will provide a decent print quality and support USB connectivity, there are of course many other things you should take into consideration. Firstly, and as mentioned above, understanding what level of operating system compatibility and connectivity is available is essential. Should you be looking to utilise a tablet or smartphone to offer tableside payment, for example, ensuring that your mobile printing device supports both the iOS and Android operation systems is pivotal. Without such support, connecting your mobile printer to an iPad or Android smartphone could prove challenging. An additional consideration that should be made when purchasing a mobile printer is the drop testing it has been put through. Our SPP-R310, for example, has a drop test certification of 1.8 metres. It is also IP54 dust proof and water resistant. Assuming compatibility, connectivity and adequate drop testing having been performed, you will likely have found the ideal mobile printer. The final consideration, however, is what level of support the manufacturer provides in the future. Whether it be through easily available technical documents or telephone support, ensuring that both hardware and software support is provided is vital.
