The benefits of OMNICHANNEL retailing, in terms of having a consistent customer experience across all consumer touchpoints, are well accepted. In order to stimulate their cash flow, Retailers now need to make their offerings even more attractive to win over customers who are likely to be more price sensitive and less loyal than ever but who still want to buy ‘value’ and not ‘cheap’. This will be relevant across all retail sectors from convenience to apparel and beyond.

4C-9XX PrintPads

The 4C-9XX PrintPads have been developed and installed in a wide range of customers in recent years. Based on the concept of offering customers and partners a powerful and flexible desktop printing platform for labels, tickets and receipts, either as standard label designs included in the “out-the-box” package or with customer-specific bespoke designs to print on custom media to their specific requirements.

With the addition of new data management features to the PrintPad’s PRiNTWORX Lite software the PrintPads and PrintBox are now able to quickly and easily produce complex Food Labels.

Creating Solutions

With new legislation for labelling being implemented throughout the world, the Electrone and PrintBox range is now equipped with an SQL database on-board that is powerful and flexible enough to handle the complex requirements of labelling in todays demanding customer service environments. If you need to pull product information from a corporate database or EPOS system and integrate it into a local on-device SQL database, then the Electrone solutions provide the answer.

Recent advancements in linerless or Sticky media offers users a number of advantages over traditional methods of labelling. There is none of the environmentally UNFRIENDLY backing paper to dispose of. You can get more prints from a roll of media. It can often stand a wider range of temperatures and comes in a variety of configurations and degrees of “stickiness”. With this in mind, Electrone Ltd have partnered with key media suppliers to ensure that the solutions offered work with a range of printer models capable of handling this flexible media. In addition, Electrone Ltd has identified a printer capable of printing in the ZPL language across a wide range of media types.

A recent test using a 4C-970 with an SQL database of over 40,000 items returned an instant response to searches for specific product data. Whilst an All-In-One printing solution that uses CSV/Spreadsheet files to hold the exact same 40,000 items took between 12 and 18 seconds to find the exact same data. Which is unusable in a “real-world” customer environment.
