Mobile Printing Applications
Mobile printing systems are used in multiple industries to conveniently create shipping labels, receipts, invoices, and tickets. Mobile printers can also be used for conducting price audits and markdowns, as well as processing credit cards, connecting to wireless networks, and receiving print jobs via email. Equipping the mobile workforce with small, portable printers instead of forcing them to rely on stationary units allows businesses to improve staff productivity, lower overall printing expenses, and satisfy their customers at the point of service. In addition, electronic records produced during mobile printing don't require transcription and data entry at the office, which reduces labor costs and speeds up billing cycles.
Specific mobile printing applications include, but are not limited to:
Warehousing and Distribution
Shipping labels can easily be generated in the field or anywhere within the distribution facility. Mobile printers can also be mounted on forklifts to facilite picking and putaway operations.
Field Sales and Service
Mobile computing and printing systems reduce invoice preparation time and allow the mobile workforce to accept payment on delivery. This increased efficiency can also prevent driver delays and wait time at the central facility by wirelessly exchanging work assignments and delivery records at the beginning and end of each shift.
Prevent lines and improve convenience, especially during busy convention periods by printing bag tags and claim checks wherever they are needed. Hotel restaurants can turn tables quicker with tableside order entry and payment processing.
Laboratories and Hospitals
Accuracy and traceability are ensured by labeling samples at the time they are drawn, as well as while they're being transferred throughout the facility.
Postal and Parcel Services
Improve documentation and control by issuing delivery receipts, pick-up notices and other documentation. Turn carriers into salespeople by selling postage generated on mobile printers. Label parcels at pick up to eliminate backlogs at the distribution center. Offer mobile utility bill payment and other new services that use carriers to accept payments and provide
Use mobile computers and printers to issue parking tickets and label evidence.
Tickets and boarding passes anywhere can be created and issued from anywhere. Mobile printing can also enable passenger check-in, payment processing and receipt printing for in-flight or in-transit transactions.
Mobile printers can be used to produce high-quality labels, receipts, coupons, and tickets using a variety of media.
The latest mobile printers are lightweight, durable, easy to use, and they offer the excellent print quality and graphics previously associated only with stationary printers. Many units offer a wireless interface that allows connection to enterprise networks and applications from anywhere in the facility, indoors or out. Other units have integrated credit card payment processing.
