Mobile Printing Benefits:

o Mobile printing based processes can incorporate technologies including Voice and RFID that interactively work to create and collect data for the warehouse operator. This increases productivity by allowing operators to focus on moving inventory.

o Printing labels during picking helps ensure data integrity. Labels are printed in real time during the execution of the task, permitting the warehouse operator to execute and label the product as requested, increasing inventory accuracy.

o Mobile printing-based processes are more intuitive, easy-to-use, easy-to-understand, and can be combined with RF and voice warehouse solutions for reduced operator training time.

o Mobile printing provides the right products available for sale, and eliminates error corrections processing in receiving and invoicing paperwork due to mis-labeling and mis-shipments. As a result, customers are more satisfied, since they receive the right product in the right amount.
