    ACS Postal Services Partners with BIXOLON to Enhance European Courier Services with Mobile Printing Solutions

    April 16, 2024

    Greek Courier Adopts Mobile Printing Technology for Seamless Real-Time Proof of Delivery BIXOLON Europe GmbH, a subsidiary of BIXOLON, the global manufacturer of advanced receipt, label, and mobile printers, is pleased to announce its partnership with ACS Postal Services (ACS), a leading Greek courier service provider. This collaboration integrates BIXOLON’s mobile printing technology into ACS's proof of delivery system, enhancing operational efficiency across ACS’s European courier landscape. This integration project has been managed by Mobile Technology, a BIXOLON Certified Partner. Enhancing Visibility Across the Delivery ChainEstablished in 1981, ACS Postal Services is a leading Greek courier company, with over 750 service points across Greece, Cyprus, Albania, and Bulgaria. Boasting a fleet of 2000 delivery vehicles and 10 fully automated sorting hubs, ACS handles 50 million shipments annually, supported by a workforce of 3700 skilled employees. In response to an increase in daily shipments in 2015, ACS upgraded its IT infrastructure with BIXOLON’s technology to strengthen connectivity between couriers and the central system using Bluetooth V4.1 (Classic + LE), while prioritising customer service. The company’s modernised IT setup streamlined the delivery of advanced automated services, including Track & Trace, Cash on Delivery, shipments redirection, and more. The project goal was to implement a comprehensive proof of delivery application, enabling real-time updates to the host system upon completion of deliveries. The application also empowers couriers to print vouchers instantly upon receiving parcels and generate receipts for customers opting for cash on delivery. Mobile Technology IntegrationThe related integration project, and eight-year long collaboration, has been successfully led by Mobile Technology, a BIXOLON Certified Partner. Mobile Technology, BIXOLON and ACS successfully deployed 2,057 of BIXOLON’s SPP-R310 3-inch (80mm) Direct Thermal Mobile Receipt and Label printers throughout ACS’ courier network. Mobile Technology’s role has been pivotal, as it has ensured a seamless integration of the Greek language in BIXOLON’s devices. In addition, Mobile Technology provides ongoing support services to ACS for this initiative. This includes regularly maintaining its couriers’ hardware remotely. This approach extends the lifecycle and uptime of devices, resulting greater productivity of couriers – it also removes the need for devices to be sent back to Mobile Technology and BIXOLON for repairs and services more frequently too. Further, Mobile Technology provides ACS with a dedicated call centre as part of its ongoing technical support to ACS couriers if and when required. Improving Proof of DeliveryThe resulting deployment of BIXOLON’s SPP-R310 mobile printers has empowered ACS to establish a robust proof of delivery application with real-time updates to the host system, providing complete visibility into the logistics chain. Couriers can now efficiently print vouchers and receipts on the spot, enhancing customer satisfaction and streamlining operations. Ioannis Vratsos, IT Director of ACS, emphasised the significance of the partnership, stating, "Our collaboration with Mobile Technology and BIXOLON Europe has been instrumental in optimising our courier services. The BIXOLON SPP-R310 mobile printer perfectly aligns with our requirements, offering the comfort and speed our staff needs for productivity. It's a testament to the success of our partnership that we continue to rely on this solution to this day." Jay Kim, Managing Director of BIXOLON Europe, added, “We are proud of the lasting impact our collaboration with ACS Postal Services has had on its logistics operations. The deployment of our mobile printers has facilitated real-time updates, empowering ACS couriers to print vouchers and receipts on the spot, providing customers with a robust proof of delivery system. “Since initially deploying these printers almost a decade ago, they have proven their durability and value, supporting ACS through increased workloads, especially during the pandemic. We remain committed to providing ongoing support and introducing new applications to enhance efficiency for ACS Postal Services, its customers, and the wider logistics industry."

    3 Benefits of RFID Labelling for the Cannabis Industry

    April 25, 2023

    3 Benefits of RFID Labelling for the Cannabis IndustryCannabis must be tracked and managed from seed to sale. Throughout the whole process cannabis growers and dispensaries can benefit from incorporating radio frequency identification (RFID) technology into their business operations. With RFID tags, cannabis growers can track plants across the seed cycle as well as provide documentation of daily operations to regulatory companies in accordance with state regulations. Dispensaries can utilize RFID technology to process and verify incoming cannabis products as well as real-time stock management. RFID technology offers several advantages for the cannabis industry, including these top three benefits: 1. Accurately Track CannabisRFID technology allows the cannabis industry to efficiently track seeds throughout the plant’s lifecycle; from the time a seed is planted until the sale. With complex and differing state laws, it’s important to ensure tracking is correctly reported internally as well as with regulators. Data on each item, such as the number of plants in a greenhouse or shipping verification for products received in a warehouse, can be bulk tracked to ensure accurate reporting to the respective regulator body as well as full visibility into business operations. 2. Real-time Inventory ManagementRFID labels allow dispensaries to easily track products in inventory. Spend less time on audits and stay compliant with regulatory inspections. Dispensaries can leverage real-time data to stay on top of inventory, quickly generate inventory reports, and track product performance. 3. Reduce Human ErrorDecrease human error and save time by relying on the accuracy of RFID technology. During daily operation documentation, cannabis growers can move away from time consuming and manual error-prone processes. RFID labels can store a variety of plant information. For example, employees in greenhouses can read several RFID tags at the same time, including those hidden from an employee’s sight allowing easy documentation and reporting. BIXOLON’s RFID PrintersTo help you make the right choice, BIXOLON provides printing solutions for every stage of the cannabis lifecycle. BIXOLON's RFID printers provide fast and reliable performance when printing and encoding RFID labels. - XM7-40R Mobile Label Printero Fast print speed of up to 5-ips at 203 dpio Gap, black mark media supported with transmissive / reflective sensorso Standard Color LCD with intuitive iconso 1.8 m (6 ft.) drop rating and IP54 sealingo Exceptional power capacity of 6800 mAh (Smart Battery)o Realtime printer profile manageability - XPM™, XCM™ - XT5-40NR Industrial Label Printero 4-inch Industrial Label Printero 203, 300, 600 dpi resolution optionso 4.3-inch full-color touch LCDo Printing speed up to 14 ips (356 mm/sec)o Multiple interface (Bluetooth, WLAN, Parallel, USB, Ethernet)o Auto-cutter, peeler, rewinder, rewinder + peeler- XD5-40tR Desktop Label Printero 4-inch Desktop Label Printero Bult-in LCDo Printing speed up to 6 ips (152 mm/sec)o Various interface (USB, USB Host, Serial, Ethernet, Bluetooth, WLAN)o Auto-cutter, peeler Contact the BIXOLON team for more information or to discuss your printing requirements.

    Supermarket Inventory Management Labelling

    February 24, 2023

    Globally more than 900 million tonnes of food is thrown away each year according to the UN.* Food retailers such as supermarkets and grocers have increasing consumer responsibility paired with the increasing importance of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) initiatives to efficiently manage and reduce unnecessary food waste. For any supermarket, managing perishable inventory is an ongoing challenge as customers demand the freshest food with the widest choice. Seasonal variation in consumption and changes in buying habits can lead to surplus supplies and consequential food waste. Although there are a number of efforts retailers can go to elevate this issue such as charity donations; product mark downs or expiration date-based discounting is the normally the first step retailers take to encourage customers to purchase goods to avoid disposal and maintain a product margin. Product Markdown Technology Product markdowns are traditionally done towards the end of the day on perishable goods such as baked, dairy, fruits and vegetables which are highlighted by brightly coloured labels which often include a barcode plus pricing to easily scan and emphasise a mark-down price. Markdowns are typically done on the shop floor by assistants using a range of labelling procedures from traditional hand written labels to pre-defined pricing guns. However, as POS technology continues to evolve, retailers are now aiding assistants with PDAs and mobile printers which are either transported on a trolley or worn with strap. These devices link directly to the supermarket’s inventory system via the cloud to provide barcode labelling on the go. Handheld labelling technology opens up the opportunity to improve efficiency by allowing multiple users to markdown products with a label which features the price and a barcode which can be instantly scanned by the customer at the checkout. Working with a range of PDA manufacturers and supporting multiple software platforms, BIXOLON’s XM7-20 premium mobile printer offers the perfect solution for product labelling and markdowns XM7-20 Key Features 2-inch (58 mm) Liner and Linerless Mobile Label Printer Simultaneously connects both Bluetooth 5.0 (MFi certified) and Dual-band WLAN (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) Compatibility with major operations including Android™, iOS™ and Windows® Smart battery providing visibility over status and life cycle Embedded peeler and paper guide Direct printing from SAP® Smart Forms and compatibility with a range of label editing applications including BIXOLON’s Label Artist™ and BarTender® For more information on BIXOLON mobile labelling solutions for retail, visit www.Bixolon.com or contact your local BIXOLON sales representative. *euronews.com

    Click and Collect – closing the gap between instore and online fulfilment

    April 12, 2022

    In the past 10 years, the gap between instore and online purchasing is beginning to close. Accelerated by the 2020 global pandemic, the rise in popularity of click and collect has enabled retailers to combine their current instore and online offerings. Providing convenience to both the customer and the retailer, click and collect has enabled businesses to turn their stores into fulfilment centre hubs – drawing inventory from shelves to fulfil online orders. These stores are also now being used as return centres which in turn centralises the control of a business’s inventory distribution. Technology within the fulfilment process has become integral to the smooth running of the collection and return process. The need for clear, concise labelling of key information such as order numbers and customer details through QR codes, barcodes, text and logos is essential for outgoing items which are picked and packed from both the shop floor and storeroom. While customer returns also require labelling so an item can be put back on sale or returned to the central hub if required. Desktop label printers placed at certain key checkpoints either at the front or back of house, supplemented with mobile labelling solutions enable convenient printing as part of a larger POS system which might include PCs, tablets, scanners and weighing scales. Label printers for effective fulfilmentBIXOLON supports a range of industrial, desktop and mobile label printing solutions which can be tailored to a retailers chosen fulfilment requirements. Options include the XQ-840 Android tablet mounted 4-inch desktop label printer which allows staff to print internal labels and read barcodes through the scanner connected to the printer. The XT5-40 industrial label printer which allows high volume, precision labelling with RFID printing capabilities. The XD5-40 quality desktop labelling solution offers direct thermal, thermal transfer or RFID label printing options. Alternatively the XL5-40 dedicated linerless label printer which offers on demand labelling for a range of adhesive strengths. Or the XM7 mobile label printer series which offers 2-inch or 4-inch printing options for high volume labelling on the go.

    Correct Labelling – the Backbone to Effeciency Within the Global Postal Industry

    March 9, 2021

    The value of the global post industry topped an estimated $409.8BN in 2018*. With global parcel volumes reaching 87 billion that same year, the increase in demand is on track to reach an estimated 200 billion parcels sent globally a year by 2025**. As the backbone of the world’s ecomony, the postal industry delivers vital packages from food and water to medical supplies and personal goods. With the Covid global pandemic, the postal industry has been leaned on further due to the shift in consumer trends towards home delivery. Technology has ensured the safe and fast parcel delivery, but packages require shipping information support for their successful delivery.But what is the key factor that ensures the efficient shipment of a product or asset? Documenting key information on labelling a parcel or pallet when shipping is crucial for its successful delivery. Typically labels contains the name and address of both the sender and the recipient, the type of shipping service chosen, the content description, a tracking number and barcode/QR code that ensures the correct handling of the shipment by the logistics company. The barcode/QR code on the label is scanned at various hub points throughout its to track the parcel’s progress. High quality, consistent printing of labels is essential for the smooth running of this process, so scanners can read the barcode/QR codes and delivery details can be easily identified. With many high quality label printing solutions on the market today consideration needs to be taken into the application for which the printer will be used and the label media required. Traditionally label media comes as fixed label lengths which limits the amount of content which can be added per label often resulting in multiple labels to display information. It is also limited by the number of labels per roll due to the silicon backing paper. However, in recent years there has been a surge in popularity for linerless label printing. A cost effective, flexible labelling solution available offers a range of adhesive strengths depending on the required application. They provide up to 40% more labels per roll at variable lengths than traditional media by removing the requirement of silicon backing paper. BIXOLON offers a range of specialised traditional label and linerless printers to suit many requirements and budgets.
