Bar coding is indispensable in warehouses and distribution centres to maintain accuracy and efficiency. These benefits can be enhanced by using mobile printers to produce and apply bar code labels at the point of application. Supplementing stationary bar code printing operations with mobile printers can reduce operator errors, the inefficiencies associated with labelling in inconvenient locations, and added costs associated with correcting errors.
Using mobile printers to eliminate the distance that workers travel to pick up labels can produce powerful productivity gains, often providing a full return on investment in less than a year when used in warehouse, distribution center, and other industrial environments. The ROI is especially strong for facilities with existing wireless LANs, because a relatively small incremental investment in mobile printers creates new ways to increase efficiency, reduce operator errors, and leverage the wireless infrastructure investment.
