Bespoke stand alone printing solution for Trend
Trend contacted AM Labels to provide a solution for portable stand alone printing. Their requirement was to be able to scan a barcode with an existing handheld scanner, and print out the appropriate label with data from a database stored on the printer, without the need for any PC interaction, making it fully stand alone.
AM Labels first port of call was to find the right printer which has the functionality to be programmed to interact with the handheld scanner and produce a label querying the product database from the input given, and also have be portable.
With these requirements AM Labels recommended the Cab Mach4 Label printer which can be customised to be battery powered with a separate rechargeable battery pack and has the abilty to store and read a database saved on a compact flash card.
With the printer issue solved the next challenge was the label format that needed to be coded to listen for an input from the handheld and print a label using this query and print out the label from the database. This is where the dedicated AM Labels team came to configure the printer to do exactly that with a 100% success rate.
Once installed the system has been introduced into Trends shop fronts and has increased their productivity dramatically.
