The world of little white labels

b2ap3_thumbnail_label.jpgThe Label in the workplace is so underestimated until it is no longer there.   Zebra labels do their job well, they perform as required and do exactly what is expected of them;  but then get into huge amounts of trouble when the last roll runs out, the operator panics as they know that was the last one in the box.  Cue a panic phone call/email to your label supplier ensues, as work has ground to a halt, whilst more insignificant labels can be sourced fast!    So are they insignificant, or can we do more to stop companies running out?  And believe me, you will be surprised how many of our customers make that panic call!!

When buying barcode scanners does it really just come down to price?

Although price might be the first consideration; functionality, your working environment b2ap3_thumbnail_handhelds.png
and device durability should also be evaluated.

The majority of our customers purchase the ‘mobile computer’ style of scanner rather than a tethered, presentation or fixed device and in this discussion I will focus on this range.


Functionality: this should be a key consideration and geared around your specific business. Do you know the type of barcodes you use or will need to use? How much information do they need to reference as this will affect whether you choose a 1d or 2D scanner?  Do you need a long range capable scanner? Will your warehouse team be 'up close and person' to your products when scanning or will be the item be on the top racking shelf? What size will your barcode and dispatch labels need to be? How much space is there on the product packaging or racking area?  Do you work with refrigerated products? Does your warehouse run 24-7?
