How to Create a Printing Solution That Grows With Your Business

Posted March 16, 2021


Compared to other prominent warehouse tools like mobile computers and scanners, labeling systems are relatively low-cost, yet they play a vital role in securing inventory accuracy for proper stock counts. As supply chains become more fast-paced, growing businesses may require a scalable and easy-to-use identification solution to:

  • Eliminate manual data entry
  • Prevent downtime from printer jams
  • Maximize printhead lifespan
  • Shave off wait times from printing stations

To remain competitive in today’s demanding market, printing and labeling solutions must be adaptable, scalable, and cost-effective, much like Zebra’s Warehouse Printers featured in our video below:

Assessing Your Printing Solution

When evaluating your options, Barcodes, Inc. recommends that you consider the following questions:

1. Can printers handle sudden high printing volumes?

As seen in previous years, order demand can change drastically in a matter of days, automatically ruling out consumer-grade printers as an optimal choice. Enterprise-grade printers such as Zebra’s barcode label printers come in varying sizes to fit different workspaces while harnessing durable printheads, intelligent printing software, and trusted security to prevent breakdowns and cyberthreats during peak seasons. The result is a printing solution that can readily handle greater demand without compromising uptime.

2. Can printers be mobilized?

While industrial and desktop printers can successfully deliver needed labels, they may not be the best mobility choice. Past studies have shown mobile printers to boost processing time by as much as 62% while reducing picking times by almost 50%. This frees up your staff to accomplish other important tasks faster while increasing printer availability without more wait times.

3. Which labeling supplies will I use?

Lastly, efficient printing systems heavily depend on your chosen consumables since they directly impact your hardware’s printhead. Inferior consumables can scratch printheads over time, leading to jams and downtime. On the flipside, smoother quality thermal ribbons protect printheads while retaining legibility in varying conditions, ultimately decreasing operational costs.    

As leaders in scalable optimization for big and growing businesses alike, Barcodes, Inc. is ready to assist you in navigating through these questions to create a tailored printing solution that matches your needs. Contact us today to see how you can begin your solution design for seamless deployment and maintenance. 

Bringing Personalized Shopping into the Storefront

Posted February 2, 2021

Studies indicate that well over half of customers are expecting a personalized shopping experience despite new shopping patterns. While price continues to be the driving force in finalizing purchases, quality shopping experience remains key in bolstering brand loyalty and enterprise success. In addition to meeting demands, personalized shopping can accomplish many other goals1 such as:

  • Increasing sales by up to 14%
  • Reducing operation costs by up to 20%
  • Increasing customer satisfaction
  • Increasing employee/customer engagement by up to 30%

Where to Start?

While there are many next-generation options capable of modernizing POS and employee engagement, Zebra’s PS20 personal shopper streamlines several functionalities within one user-friendly interface that can be used easily by both associates and customers. See how in the video below:

Because of its adaptive platform, Zebra’s personal shopper can also help operations facilitate new purchase patterns such as BOPIS, click-and-collect, and curbside pickup.

Resolving the Unseen Dangers of Inaccurate Patient Identification

Posted July 27, 2020

Needless to say, there is already a great deal of anxiety felt within a hospital. The last thing your staff and patients should worry about is whether or not they are receiving the correct treatment. However, researchers at the Emergency Care Research Institute cite mismatched identification as one of the top ten concerns[1] patients have in 2020. As a matter of fact, American healthcare systems lose an average of $6 billion[2] annually due to inaccurate patient identification and matching. In addition to potential patient endangerment and financial loss, poor identification can also lead to:

  • Wasted medical resources
  • Lost staff productivity
  • Incorrect discharge instructions
  • Transfusion and medication errors
  • Diminished patient trust

To reduce these harms, healthcare professionals are encouraged to double-check wristbands before administering care; however, when bands are fading, crumpled, or inaccessible, proper identification becomes more difficult.

See how our partnership with Zebra Technologies can improve your identification system in our video:
