According to a 2013 Zebra study, the average warehouse spends 1,920 hours producing labels. With the average cost of labor nearing $20 per hour, it’s estimated warehouses can spend as close to $38,400 in printing labor. Add that to bottlenecks and maintenance downtime, the cost of inadequate printing systems can become unbearable.
Facilitating operations for over two decades, CMAC continuously investigates efficient solutions to warehouses’ most common issues. Because label production is crucial to proper inventory management, CMAC proposes mobile printing as a cost-effective path in simplifying your labeling system.
Spend $28,000 Less with the Benefits of Mobile Printers
To reduce printing costs, the first step would be to explore the benefits of mobile printers as opposed to standard industrial printing stations. Available for every employee at any time, mobile printers such as Zebra’s ZQ-series shorten labor time without risking necessary accuracy. After introducing mobile printers to several businesses, Zebra’s mobile printers erased 1,440 hours spent printing, increasing investment returns by $28,800 within a year. In addition to reduced distractions, mobile printing impacts your workflow in many more beneficial ways.
Keep Accuracy Intact with Mobile Printers
With fewer distractions interrupting employees, you can expect greater accuracy as the correct labels are printed, scanned, and shipped. Eliminating manual data-entry errors, efficient printing systems can help lower error rates, resulting in nearly $26,000 in savings as inventory is immediately and appropriately labeled during receiving.
Furthermore, as mobile printers decrease time and money spent correcting errors, they also free up workers to focus on different steps of your supply chain. In addition to accuracy, each Zebra printer further offers benefits exclusive to Zebra products.
