    Loss Prevention and Protection: Digital Vs Physical Receipting

    November 4, 2019

    For hundreds of years paper receipting has acknowledged that a person has received goods or services following a payment of money or property. It provides a physical binding contract of a transaction which has taken place. As technology has advanced from physical written receipting to the use of printed receipts, digital receipting is now entering the arena. With each technology advance, it has provided both businesses and customers with many benefits. However, as we progress through these advancing technological times, can we still prove the loss prevention and protection of our purchases? Digital Receipting• With the growing pressure to modernise operations and become more environmentally friendly, digital receipting is growing in popularity as a paperless alternative to traditional receipting.• Customers have a digital copy of receipts which can be centrally stored and used as required.• Digital receipting has now been recognised as an approved form of expensing and accounting by many countries across the world.• However, digital receipting relies on customers having either an email address or their business app. Not all customers will have access to such devices, so digital receipting isn’t always possible.• Businesses emailing receipts are required to maintain a large database of contact details which require additional security protocols within the POS system. If sensitive addresses are inputted incorrectly, the customer will not receive their proof of payment.• Digital receipting relies on businesses having 24/7 access to the cloud to send the receipt and customers having instant data access to receive it. Sometimes due to technology failure, these services might not be instantly available. Physical Receipting• Physical receipts provide an instant proof of payment for a transaction and provides customers with the security of an instant return.• Physical receipts give businesses the ability to instantly add seasonal identifiers, such as coupons or promotions in the form of barcodes and QR codes, which can easily be scanned by the POS in real-time.• For customers paying with cash, physical receipts protect both the business checking they are providing the correct change and the customer with proof that the correct money has been returned.• However, there are always issues in the quality of paper used, the potential for receipts to fade over time. The cost of transport logistics for the receipt rolls and time required to change a till roll also need to be considered.• Digital receipting is an irreversible trend, but working alongside traditional receipting both options provides both the customers and businesses complete protection on proof of payment and receipt of products/services. So, what printing options available in the market today? BIXOLON offers an award-winning range of Direct Thermal Desktop POS and Mobile Printers. Available as 2-inch (58mm), 3-inch (80mm) and 4-inch (112mm) media widths, our printers are packed with value-added features and a wide range of connectivity options to suit budget and requirements. Complimented by its dynamic label printing range of linered and linerless labelling, BIXOLON printing solutions are ideal for a range of applications, from stand-alone kiosk printing to multi-platform ecosystems. BIXOLON’s POS printers including the SRP-380, or SRP-S300 offer a paper saving mode, reducing the size of the receipt up to 25%. Model dependent features also include a back-feed option to reduce paper expenses by 20% or Auto Receipt Resize™ software which facilities 80-58mm auto paper reduction. In addition, BIXOLON also supports a range of software add-ons, such as mPrint Server, facilitating direct printing from web browsers and providing businesses with flexibility for a range of applications from customer receipting for Mobile POS, to MRD (Make, Ready, Discard) applications. Alongside mPrint App which gives users the ability to print documentation -image and PDF- from the web through their chosen web browser or app on an iOS™ or Android™ device. Working tirelessly with paper suppliers and customers, BIXOLON research and development team are always looking for eco printing alternatives to support businesses and save the environment.

The always-online, mobile shopper is operating outside of traditional store hours. Their ability to view and buy goods is also seeing the need to provide these purchases in an equally timely manner.Click & Collect service provides shoppers with the flexibility to pick up purchases to suit their own schedules. Similarly, the same infrastructure can handle the returns of unwanted goods. While some retailers are choosing to build their own logistics networks, there is an increasing number of partnerships that allow for a collaborative approach to collections and returns giving shoppers access to the retailers’ goods and services. These collaborations are allowing local retailers to compete on a national level and against larger competitors. Plus, it can provide a route to attracting more price-conscious consumers with competitively priced delivery options. Adding to the traditional in-store transactional and seasonal shopper, a BIXOLON collection and returns solution can be easily added to a store’s existing infrastructure. Offering compact, wired or secure wireless network printers in varying colour options to suit your store design no matter the space constraints. Control of the printers is also possible on legacy POS, Windows™, Android™ or iOS® platforms, through label, mobiles, handhelds or tablets. BIXOLON offers a suite of development tools to easily create a new collection and returns application or add printing to an existing solution. For added customer experience, returns labelling can be printed and provided with the collection package, removing complexity of producing return labels by the customer prior to drop-off. For the tracking of high value items or their return to stock following a return, BIXOLON offers an UHF RFID print-encoding solution. The design of BIXOLON’s printers means that they’re easy to use, so there is no reduction in staff productivity – removing the requirement for additional training or support for seasonal/temporary staff.

One of the ways can be to have specific sustainable business practices, so how to attract more eco-conscious shoppers or maintain your environmental principles?

    Energy Efficiency Labelling Regulations

    July 1, 2019

    The European Commission has recently adopted new formats of Energy Efficiency Labelling for several product groups. As part of the European Union’s energy saving objectives and to provide clearer, simpler information to consumers, the new formats will provide a QR code link that consumers can scan to obtain additional product information. This official, non-commercial information will be entered by manufacturers into the associated European Product Database for Energy Labelling (EPREL), which will become available for consumers to view through the latter months of 2019. As of January 2019, manufacturers, importers and authorised representatives of certain appliances need to register their goods and provide the additional consumer information before selling them on the European market. Some legacy goods will also need to have their energy labelling amended and additional information added to the EPREL database if placed on the market from the 1st August 2017 and the 31st December 2018. Now whilst the EPREL database is an EU managed initiative there are obvious implications for goods manufactured outside of the EU where the EU is the intended recipient region of sale. It is fortunate then that BIXOLON has a global sales and support team, plus a network of UNITE partners that can meet all your printing needs. For your label creation and generation needs, then BIXOLON offer a free of charge Label Artist™ application.BIXOLON’s broad range of energy saving Mobile, Desktop and Industrial printers support all industry types of barcode symbologies, including the QR code, plus UHF RFID print-encoding.The range of easy to use portable and fixed printers ensure quality output label after label on a choice of print resolutions - 203, 300 and 600 dpi.
