Wonders of Wireless

February 2017

As part of its ongoing commitment to Wi-Fi and WLAN technology, Barcode Dynamics is proud to partner with Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) company. Aruba, which was acquired by HPE in 2015, is a world-leader in wireless network technology.

Wi-Fi is commonly used in physical settings requiring both network connectivity and user mobility – such as warehouses, factories, hospitals, motels and educational facilities. Wi-Fi provides many unique advantages over a traditional “cabled” network, including mobility, convenience, simpler deployment and enhanced productivity – particularly for workers on the move.

At Barcode Dynamics, we can vouch for the performance and cost-effectiveness of the Aruba “Instant” range of Wi-Fi products and services. The Aruba Instant solution utilises the 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard - providing theoretical speeds of up to 1.7 Gbps - and doesn’t require additional controller hardware. In the absence of controller hardware, authentication and configuration is performed by the access points (APs) themselves.

The Aruba Instant access points (APs), which are usually wall-mounted, can be deployed indoors or outdoors. Network redundancy is provided in the form of dual Ethernet and 3G/4G USB modem ports (located on the access points themselves). A very popular access point (AP) model is the Instant 314/315 Wave 2, which is ideal for high-density client environments.

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.
