Datalogic Pegaso Optimizes Supermarket’s Distribution Warehouse

Posted September 16, 2010

Datalogic PegasoThe Familiya supermarket chain was founded in 2000. Today Familiya is a large company that produces clothes, footwear and many other goods at reasonable prices. It has 39 stores in the Moscow region and Saint Petersburg with a total floor space of over 30,000 square meters. It also includes a distribution warehouse, purchasing department and business support services.

In the past, all warehousing operations, such as receiving, dispatch and inventory, were done manually. In an area of 7,500 square meters, many errors occurred and goods were lost. In order to avoid these errors, Datalogic partner recommended the Datalogic Pegaso PDA.

The numerous benefits provided by Pegaso were the deciding factors for this choice. This rugged PDA provides a large color and clear touch display (3.7 in) that helps users work more efficiently in various lighting conditions, it includes a large memory (128 MB) with extension possibility, an IP64 protection class and can be dropped from 1.5m to a concrete surface without breaking down. Furthermore, the Windows Mobile 6.0 operating system allows use of numerous standard development tools and the quick-attach handle assures comfortable device usage while reducing user fatigue during intensive scanning. Another additional benefit is obtained by the rechargeable Li-on battery pack, which allows Pegaso™ continuous operation for 12 hours, improving productivity.

Scan City’s partner Soft Merit, dealing with warehouse automation solutions at Familiya, has installed 10 Pegasos, supplying one third of Familiya’s distribution warehousing personnel with these devices. However, the automation process has not been completed yet. In the near future, 20 more Pegaso™ PDAs will be installed and Familiya is studying the possibility of using other Datalogic Mobile terminals in its stores.


Printronix Enhances Smart Forms Capability with Certification and Device Drivers

Posted September 15, 2010

Printronix has released several new SAP Smart Form device drivers, allowing SAP users to print to Printronix line matrix and thermal bar code printers easily. In addition, Printronix has attained the Silver level in the SAP® Printer Vendor Program. This accreditation certifies Printronix as a suppler of seamless and easy-to-use office solutions.

Maintaining continuous operations is a mission-critical part of production, and replacing print systems shouldn’t be a burden to the IT organization. The Printronix line matrix and thermal bar code printers combined with SAP Smart Forms, offer users a cost-effective, quick and sensible way to upgrade printers and have applications working properly in a very short time. The latest Smart Forms capability combined with the new Printronix drivers eliminates the need for additional programming during the replacement process.

The most common business output from an SAP system are forms and labels designed using Smart Forms, a graphic-based SAP tool for creating device-independent forms. The printer driver’s job is to translate the output commands generated by Smart Forms into commands that can be natively understood by the printer. Printronix bar code printer drivers are designed to carry out this translation and stream the output directly to the printer without requiring additional middleware applications. The result is a solid and robust printing system that requires little to no customization or ongoing maintenance.

The new drivers are available for download now on the Printronix website, by calling 1-800-665-6210 or by sending an e-mail to sales@printronix.com.

Motorola MC65 Rugged Mobile Computer

Posted September 14, 2010

Motorola MC65Software-Configurable, Dual 3.5G WAN Enterprise Digital Assistant

Make the most out of every minute in the field — with the Motorola MC65

Supercharge your mobile workforce and redefine productivity with the toughest, most flexible EDA on the market. Workers have multiple tasks and limited time. With the Motorola MC65, they have the tools in hand to get their jobs done right — right now. Desktop-like performance provides instant access to the applications and information back at the office. Shave hours of time out of the work week by capturing and processing just about any type of data on site, quickly and easily — from a single document to hundreds of bar codes, a library of photos or a signature. Activate and reactivate the MC65 on virtually any cellular network in the world, eliminating the need to purchase network technology (GSM or CDMA) specific devices, extending device lifecycle and ensuring that each and every worker has the best connection possible. Add a customizable user interface that makes doing business easier than ever and you have a real workforce multiplier — a device that turns paperwork and repeat visits into more tasks completed per day.

Streamline and error-proof processes with advanced data capture

The MC65 does it all —1D and 2D bar codes, photos complete with embedded notes, documents, signatures and more. Poorly printed or damaged bar codes a problem? Not for the MC65. Our most advanced scanning technology allows the rapid-fire capture of items as they are removed from the delivery truck, so your customers get what they ordered, every time.

With the MC65, an equipment inspector can capture a photo, add comments and automatically embed a geostamp via integrated GPS, sending supervisors the information they need to get the right technician to the right location to complete a repair. And that repair technician can take and transmit live video to collaborate with a specialist to troubleshoot a problem. A city building inspector can capture a document, complete with legible fine print and a signature, keeping all forms related to a code enforcement case in hand. And when account managers scan the product inventory remaining on the shelves in a grocery store, the resulting real-time count creates real-time accurate sales orders and production schedules.

Connect to virtually any carrier network in the world — GSM or CDMA

The MC65 offers a Motorola first — the ability to connect to virtually any wireless carrier around the world. Both 3.5G GSM HSPA and CDMA EVDO Rev A software configurable cellular radios are built into the device, allowing you to select the network that will provide the best coverage for your workers. Do your workers travel through large territories best served by different networks? Need to activate on a different network for workers in a different office? No problem. This single device can be deployed and re-deployed on virtually any network, anywhere in the world, making purchasing and device management easy — and maximizing your return on investment.
