Choosing a new lineup of technologies is an important part of enabling positive logistics transformation. These devices have to fit the needs of the warehouse: that means there is a lack of space for desktop PC workstations, and connectivity must often be handled wirelessly. Furthermore, the equipment should be rugged enough to survive the tough environment and not require time-consuming and workflow-breaking software installation.
Fortunately, by deploying devices such as Brother's line of portable thermal printers, today's organisations can modernise their operations in a way that will meet their many requirements. The goals that can be achieved through these deployments include:
Below you can explore this new approach to warehouse operations in greater detail and determine how these new deployments would fit into and enhance your logistics workflows.
Brother's thermal printers have a small footprint and can be deployed wherever they're needed, providing inventory and shipping labels, barcodes and shelf labelling to ease every step of the logistics process. Logistics personnel gain new capabilities, including:
Technology deployments cannot live up to their potential to ease logistics workflows if they are prone to breakdowns or otherwise cannot stand up to the fast-moving warehouse environment. This is another area where Brother's compact desktop and mobile thermal printers shine in a warehouse context. These devices can last for years on end, and thermal print heads can deliver the high-volume performance personnel need. These printers can accomplish goals such as:
The software powering a printer can be as important to its overall effectiveness as the hardware. This is why users should focus on technology tools that come with flexible and effective systems, accessible through mobile devices and integrated with their warehouse management systems and other essential platforms. Benefits of Brother's accompanying software deployments include:
One of the keys to smooth logistics processes is ensuring there are no breaks in the workflow. Delays and disruptions can lead to extensive backlogs and lost productivity. This is why it's so important to find printing solutions that are simple to deploy and update. Brother's offerings connect seamlessly to networks and receive updates without extensive downtime. The advantages of this type of deployment include:
