The always-online, mobile shopper is operating outside of traditional store hours. Their ability to view and buy goods is also seeing the need to provide these purchases in an equally timely manner.Click & Collect service provides shoppers with the flexibility to pick up purchases to suit their own schedules. Similarly, the same infrastructure can handle the returns of unwanted goods. While some retailers are choosing to build their own logistics networks, there is an increasing number of partnerships that allow for a collaborative approach to collections and returns giving shoppers access to the retailers’ goods and services. These collaborations are allowing local retailers to compete on a national level and against larger competitors. Plus, it can provide a route to attracting more price-conscious consumers with competitively priced delivery options. Adding to the traditional in-store transactional and seasonal shopper, a BIXOLON collection and returns solution can be easily added to a store’s existing infrastructure. Offering compact, wired or secure wireless network printers in varying colour options to suit your store design no matter the space constraints. Control of the printers is also possible on legacy POS, Windows™, Android™ or iOS® platforms, through label, mobiles, handhelds or tablets. BIXOLON offers a suite of development tools to easily create a new collection and returns application or add printing to an existing solution. For added customer experience, returns labelling can be printed and provided with the collection package, removing complexity of producing return labels by the customer prior to drop-off. For the tracking of high value items or their return to stock following a return, BIXOLON offers an UHF RFID print-encoding solution. The design of BIXOLON’s printers means that they’re easy to use, so there is no reduction in staff productivity – removing the requirement for additional training or support for seasonal/temporary staff. Sustainable Printing Alternatives Retailers are always looking to increase revenues and attract new shoppers. One of the ways can be to have specific sustainable business practices, so how to attract more eco-conscious shoppers or maintain your environmental principles?

    Linerless Labeling Solutions with Taken Sensor™ Technology

    November 1, 2018

    Since the introduction of multi-platform POS ecosystems, just-in-time delivery and asset management label printing technology has played a key role in the identification of products to allow easy documentation and management. In industries such as hospitality, companies come under pressure to improve data collection and reduce errors, many are quickly moving away from the traditional pen-and-paper based processes and are investing heavily in technology to increase productivity and efficiency. For example, in areas such as fast food, where its time management and order processing is imperative, staff currently struggle attaching order bills to cups, bags or wrap causing inaccurate data processing and missing orders. This issue is not just confined to hospitality. Retail distribution, logistics and warehouse businesses also have re-occurring issues trying to increase work productivity while printing. Many citing issues attaching different types of invoice labelling to their products. To resolve these issues, BIXOLON has developed a Linerless Labelling solution with B-linerless™ and Taken Sensor™ Technology. Benefits of B-linerless™ ​B-linerless™ is available in two sticky options, B-linerless™ Permanent featuring a permanent adhesive which is similar to traditional liner labels and B-linerless™ Re-stick supporting a removable and repositionable adhesive. It provides: Enhancing work productivity: Providing greater flexibility, linerless labels offer an ecological alternative to traditional label media. Allowing easy-to-use drop-in paper loading, Linerless labelling enables the possibility of providing a label of any length with the ability to still provide a clean cut without label gum build-up.Lower TCO: Removing the waste of silicon backing liner paper originally used in labelling, linerless rolls offer double the number of labels per roll, decreasing the number of roll changes. High Quality: Compatible with BIXOLON’s high-quality printers insures a long time use without jamming errors. Eco-friendly: Eliminating the waste bi-product of silicon liner backing paper, linerless labels help reduce paper waste. Why choose BIXOLON’s linerless labeling solution?Linerless paper typically has a reduced amount of adhesive spread across the media compared to traditional heavy adhesive paper which leave residue on a printer mechanisms and can cause paper jams during continuous printing. To counteract this, BIXOLON has installed Anti-Jam Technology in the SRP-S300. This technology provides special paper path design, an automatic guillotine cutting system with a revolutionary platen roller and sub roller designed with rubber material. Alongside BIXOLON’s Taken Sensor™ Technology which can calibrate this issue and make the linerless system run smoothly and effectively, by limiting linerless label printing until the current label has been removed. With these unique technologies, BIXOLON’s solution is compatible not only light adhesive linerless but also heavy adhesive linerless label printing differently from comparable solutions on the market.For more information visit http://www.bixolon.com/, http://blog.bixolon.com/ or alternatively speak to your local BIXOLON sales representative.
