Because every operation is unique, ValuTrack builds printing solutions with a variety of printers. However, when it comes to versatility, mobile printers stand apart from the rest thanks to their ability to make workers productive anyplace at any time. Studies suggest that warehouse workers can spend up to four hours simply walking throughout the warehouse, which translates to an average of $40 spent per worker per day just on walking. Keep in mind that this value doesn’t factor in bottlenecks and wait times which can accompany most printing stations.
Unlike industrial and desktop printers –which can also be extremely useful and durable in different circumstances– mobile printers secure uptime throughout the warehouse and in different stages of the supply chain. Working with intelligent solutions for over 30 years, our experts have outlined a few benefits you can expect when you combine mobility and printing performance in one system.
- Easier set-up for new employees and shift changes – Tap to pair features aid in proving seamless integration with your current mobile devices, so your employees can start their shifts with a user-friendly device that’s ready for anything with just a press of a button. More intelligent printers such as Zebra’s ZQ630 further minimizes IT burdens by integrating dependable security into your printer’s operating system.
- Reduced time costs and energy use – Warehouses generally consume a lot of energy. As a matter of fact, research projects energy costs to compose roughly 15% of total operation costs. By running on long-lasting batteries, mobile printers can help decrease electric costs. Zebra’s Instant Wake-up Over WiFi maximizes savings by entering sleep mode during idle periods, ultimately saving more power.
- Lightweight printing that handles field service – Needless to say, industrial printers are not made for field service. On the other hand, mobile printers are able to deliver the same dependable performance on the road, improving dropship and ship-to-order operations where your workforce may need to print labels on the fly.
- Secured social distancing – With warehouses facing higher customer demands, bottlenecks at printing stations are only natural, yet as we know, high-density areas may not be safe for workers. Mobile printers alleviate printing stations from becoming too crowded, easing workers into fulfilling social distancing requirements without hindering efficiency.
