In the fast-moving retail and fast-food industries businesses are constantly looking for ways to improve processes and work more efficiently. An area in which major gains are possible is label printing. Intelligent printing solutions now exist to make the production of labels more flexible and cost-effective, which is why Sato, the Automatic Identification and Data Collection (AIDC) and barcode printing, labelling, and EPC/RFID solutions provider, has released a white paper on the latest innovation in this area, Application Enabled Printing (AEP).
The white paper 'Application Enabled Printing Solutions for the Retail and Food Industries', discusses how sophisticated and customisable AEP label printing solutions, which provide users with the ability to easily download and create tailor-made applications, are able to help businesses in the food and retail industries improve the efficiency of their label printing processes and facilitate time and cost savings.
The white paper examines the evolution of Application Enabled Printing, from the first smart printers to the stand-alone and fully programmable printers in existence today, and looks at how printers incorporating Application Enabled Printing are witnessing rapid adoption across a range of industries due to the process improvements they provide. The latest innovations in Application Enabled Printing are also discussed, such as Sato's TH2 label printer, an incredibly versatile and easy to use printer which allows users to quickly and efficiently create new label printing applications.
Commenting on the white paper Ikuo Dobashi, Chairman of Sato Corporation and Sato International Europe said:
"It comes as no surprise that leading printer manufacturers are now offering the ability for end-users to customise their label printers, giving the concept of customer satisfaction a whole new meaning by helping businesses streamline their printing processes and resellers to cater precisely to their customers' needs. Application Enabled Printing technology offers businesses, especially in the retail and food environments, sophisticated and flexible solutions which have the potential to revolutionise the way we do printing".
