Why Mobile Printing Matters

January 2017
 
In today’s fast-paced business environment, the ability to print on the move is critical. Whether you’re generating quotes and invoices on the road, or creating delivery dockets in the warehouse, mobile printing has too many benefits to ignore.

Today’s mobile printers are highly-sophisticated pieces of technology - designed to integrate seamlessly with tablets, handheld computers and smartphones via wireless technologies like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and Certified Wireless USB. They come in a range of styles and sizes, can be vehicle-mounted, and are capable of producing high-resolution documents.

Mobile printing provides organisations with the following key benefits:-
  • Shorten the sales cycle - a sales representative (or road warrior) can be empowered to quote and close a deal on the spot. Quotes, invoices, receipts and contracts can be printed with ease on the road.
  • Save space – mobile printers are typically smaller than desk or office printers.
  • Reduce IT infrastructure – in a warehouse setting, mobile printers (versus traditional printers) don’t typically require the same level of cabling infrastructure.
  • Mobility – mobile printers can generally go anywhere, provided they have “line-of-sight” with the mobile device sending the print request.
Your choice of mobile printer will depend primarily on the application and the frequency of use. Barcode Dynamics offers a wide range of mobile printers from the world’s leading brands, including Zebra, Honeywell, Datamax and Intermec.

Barcode Technology Transforming Healthcare

December 2016
 
The healthcare sector is one of Australia’s fastest growing and most important industries. An ageing population, coupled with a rise in lifestyle diseases, is placing greater pressure on the nation’s health system. Both public and private healthcare providers are being forced to do more with less.

Given the high cost of effective healthcare, technology is playing an increasingly important role in the sector. The humble barcode, in both 1-dimensional and 2-dimensional form, is playing a significant role in reducing cost and increasing efficiency.

The benefits of barcode technology can be found in the following areas.

Inventory Management
Managing inventories in a healthcare setting is complex and time-consuming. Barcode technology enables critical supplies, such as dressings and pharmaceuticals, to be ordered in the correct quantities for optimal stock control and patient care. Barcodes can also be used to track “health assets” such as surgical devices and utensils, which may be faulty or go missing.

Patient Identification
From a “best practice” and legal perspective, healthcare providers are required to have positive identification processes in place to ensure that patients are given the correct treatment. By scanning the barcode on a patient’s wristband, a medical professional can confirm a patient’s identity and treatment regimen.

Tracking of Medications, Laboratory Samples and Medical Staff
Barcodes can be used to track and identify medications, medical aids, laboratory samples and medical staff. The resulting information can be used to populate an electronic patient record. With its automatic data capture capabilities, barcoding simplifies and speeds up records management.

At Barcode Dynamics, we understand the healthcare industry and its specific operational requirements. We offer a wide range of barcode solutions from leading brands such as Zebra, Datalogic and SATO HealthCare.

The Internet of Everything (IoE)

November 2016
 
The Internet of Everything (IoE) is a concept which has evolved from another concept, the Internet of Things (IoT). Whereas IoT focuses primarily on connecting physical devices to the Internet, IoE takes things a step further by incorporating people and processes as well.

Cisco is the company credited with devising and popularising IoE. Cisco defines IoE as "the intelligent connection of people, process, data and things." IoE combines machine-to-machine (M2M) communication with both machine-to-people (M2P) and technology-assisted people-to-people (P2P) communication. In other words, “everything” joins the network.

A good example of IoE in action is the Proteus Pill, an “intelligent” pharmaceutical tablet-capsule which contains a sand-sized ingestible sensor chip. The chip, which is powered by body fluids, is designed to signal a doctor’s smartphone when a patient takes their medication – ensuring treatment compliance. The Proteus Pill, which is the brainchild of Proteus Digital Health, is currently undergoing clinical trials with the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States.

Besides healthcare, IoE is making its mark in other areas such as transportation (smart cars), energy (smart grids) and manufacturing (smart factories). It’s estimated that IoE will generate $14.4 trillion of economic value globally over the next 10 years.

Barcode Dynamics is proud to partner with Cisco, a pioneer in the Internet of Everything (IoE). For further information on Cisco’s cutting-edge solutions, please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or on 07 3399 6510.
