Sound Choices Recording Services Adds Star Printer and WiFi Power Pack to Speed Checkout and Enhance Operations

Posted July 1, 2013

Sound Choices Recording Services of Mobile offers premier location recording services for concerts, festivals, musicals, recitals, cd recordings and more. Since 1997, Sound Choices has been passionate about audio and video recording at local, regional and state levels. Along with location sound recording, the company offers a full range of services to musicians, choirs and groups looking to record their music to produce their own CDs. Sound Choices specializes in digital editing, mixing, audio mastering, cd design and artwork and cd production.

The Alabama-based recording company works primarily on location, where they sell both DVDs and CDs, depending on the venue. The mobile studio was using the e-mail feature of Square Register to generate receipts, but it was taking too long to complete each transaction and the long lines were driving customers away.

The studio’s management decided to purchase a receipt printer that would allow them to generate a printed receipt at the time of checkout as opposed to only offering e-receipts. But the company’s onsite network is completely wireless, and the mobile studio lacked the infrastructure to connect to WiFi, which would allow them to use a printer with their mobile POS solution.

Sinai Hospital Utilizes the Datalogic Gryphon at Patient Point of Care

Posted June 11, 2013

Overview
Like no other industry, Healthcare has experienced an explosion in technology that affects and improves both the doctor’s ability to provide care, and the patient’s knowledge and response to treatment. Technology that was once science fiction is now common place with tools like: external vision systems that present three dimensional images of inside the body; micro surgery that minimizes invasiveness and speeds recovery; micro transducers that provide real time diagnostics from within the body. The list of advancements grows daily. While these advances lead healthcare diagnostic technology, more fundamental systems such as patient records management and prescription administration have lagged far behind.

The Federal Government enacted legislation aimed at increasing the efficiency of the healthcare system by requiring the implementation of Electronic Health Records (EHR). A leading regional healthcare organization in Baltimore, LifeBridge Health, has implemented Electronic Health Records systems and taken the added step to implement bar code technology at the patient point of care. LifeBridge Health consists of Sinai Hospital of Baltimore, Northwest Hospital, Levindale Hebrew Geriatric Center and Hospital, Courtland Gardens Nursing & Rehabilitation Center and their subsidiaries and affiliated units. LifeBridge Health is one of the largest, most comprehensive, and most highly respected providers of healthcare in the Baltimore region.

Posted April 25, 2013

Datalogic QuickScan I QD2100 Barcode ScannerThe National Blood Service in Russia assures the supply of high quality blood to medical institutions. This public entity coordinates blood centers all over Russia, making sure the blood donation process, including transportation and storage, is performed correctly. In addition, it assures the proper use of blood components and preparations.

The Challenge
One important part of the blood donation process is collecting data about the donor. The medical assistant must enter pertinent information about the donor and the quantity and quality of the blood collected in an electronic database. In the past, each region of Russia handled its territory’s database separately from the others. However, to assure quality control throughout the country, the National Blood Service determined that these records should be available to all regions. An automated system needed to be created in order to allow the entire work cycle to be kept under control.

Nick Heller, scoreboard production assistant at the stadium, works with a crew to run the audio and video boards for all games, shows and events that take place at the stadium. To successfully run these events, Heller and the Scoreboard Production department work with large amounts of expensive production equipment, including television cameras, truss structures, speakers, and microphones.

The cost of the equipment needed to run the scoreboard show for the Arizona Cardinals football games or put on events such as the University of Phoenix graduation ceremony is extremely high. Any given day, $10,000 to $100,000 of equipment will be used depending on the event.

Intermec’s Workflow Solutions Reduce Costs and Increase Efficiencies

Posted February 13, 2013

Mis-Picks Cost Businesses Nearly $390,000 Per Year According to Intermec Study

According to a study recently conducted by Intermecdistribution centers are losing an average of nearly $390,000 per year due to mis-picks. With a new year bringing renewed pressure to boost efficiencies and drive costs down, the demands for faultless distribution processes have never been higher. Achieving productivity and accuracy goals is fundamental to improving profit margins, which is why more than half (59%) of managers are now turning to ‘The Perfect Order’ metric to identify areas for improvement.

The study, which surveyed 250 supply chain and distribution managers across the US, UK, France and Germany, found the average mis-pick costs approximately $22, with more than half (52%) of companies reporting a pick rate of less than 97%. A further 19 percent do not even measure the costs of mis-picks in any form, suggesting that the accumulated losses to the supply chain may be even higher.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, companies that have recently conducted a workflow process review found picking (47%) a key area where cost savings could most easily be achieved. For those using ‘The Perfect Order’ metric, opportunities for increased savings were clear, with complete shipments (43%) seen as the most profitable to the bottom line.
