Barthes Co Uses AirTrack DP-1 and KoamTac KDC to Manage Shipping and Sales

Posted November 17, 2016

AirTrack DP-1 PrinterBarthes Co is a technology company that focuses on repairs for various types of devices. Before reaching out to Barcodes, Inc. they printed thousands of shipping labels using an inkjet printer, but quickly realized that their printers were breaking down and simply not keeping up with the thousands of shipping labels that were required to be printed. Additionally, they wanted to automate a process that required each of their sales representatives to manually track their sales orders against sales goals.

Barcodes, Inc. recommended the AirTrack DP-1 desktop printer to manage the printing of their shipping labels, which was not only more cost effective, but also more reliable and faster than an inkjet printer. In addition to the barcode printer, Barcodes supplied Barthes Co with flood coated barcode labels, which helps simplify product identification while making picking and organization much easier. Finally, Barcodes, Inc. recommended the KoamTac KDC410, a sled for the Apple iPhone, which was compatible with the Barthes Co sales tracking software that was used internally. The KDC410 allowed sales representatives to scan the barcode on a purchase order, which in turn would update their sales progress and allow them to track everything from their iPhone no matter where they were located. Barthes Co saw an immediate boost in production and employee satisfaction.
