An increasing number of original equipment manufacturers are selecting devices from the Zebra Technologies OEM portfolio for their products.
Are your customers becoming more and more demanding when it comes to individual component tracking in electrical goods you have produced?
Accountability is increasing in all areas of today’s world – and manufacturing is no exception. Printed circuit boards (PCBs) are present in most electrical products: iPhones, computers, televisions, for example. And businesses, especially those in high risk sectors such as aerospace and engineering, want to be able to track and trace individual PCBs.
Global supplier of SMT printing solutions Speedprint Technology has partnered with the Zebra Technologies OEM team to help manufacturers address that issue.
Like millions of others, last November I ventured out on Black Friday to take advantage of some great deals. The lines upon lines of people shocked me.
Now, I know you’re thinking, “Garry, how can you be shocked at lines on Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year?” Well, it’s not that I was shocked at the number of people shopping; it was the actual lines themselves.
Over the past decade, the auto industry has been placing big bet investments on hybrids.
As defined, a hybrid is something combining two different sources to take advantage of the best characteristics of each. For automobiles, that usually means a blend of an internal combustion engine with a fuel-cell battery to deliver strong performance, reliability and efficiency at the lowest cost.
For the past 30 years the bar code scanner has revolutionized meal prep.
In millions of supermarkets and grocery stores around the world, all the wonderful ingredients of your next meal are quickly and accurately scanned at the register ensuring better stocking and inventory positions for the operators and faster, more reliable check-out and pricing for shoppers.
But we see a future where bar code scanning plays a role not just in the ingredients you bring home to your kitchen, but in the preparation of the meal itself. Welcome to the smart(er) kitchen!
Over the last decade or so, retail has seen a revival of smaller stores and specialty shops – a trend driven by customers demanding a more personal experience. Any time you have an opportunity for an enhanced customer interaction, eventually lessons learned in one market carry over to another. Healthcare is no exception.
Just like they do when they’re in a store, customers – or, in this case, patients – are demanding a more personal level of care. They expect a hospital they visit to have their health history, from doctor’s visits to prescriptions to known allergies to possible predisposed conditions. They expect treatment in a timely and attentive manner – and they want that treatment to come with no complications or misdiagnosis. The heightened expectations of patients are so great that many hospitals are adding Chief Experience Officers to ensure a stellar patient experience.
Business globalisation means that the market for air travel continues to grow, and there are more aircraft on the move across the world. At the same time, economic growth in specific markets including the Middle East and Asia means that more people can afford to travel by air.
Casino resorts of the future need to attract a younger generation of guests who have even higher expectations for personalized experiences. To achieve that, they need to create a smarter casino environment enabled by something we call Enterprise Asset Intelligence.
The idea is to gain insight into all the resort’s assets, whether that be guests, staff, gaming equipment, or inventory, and gather that asset intelligence in real-time in an automatic way that enables resorts to engage guests and elevate revenue.
As with most everything in retail today, consumers are demanding more at point-of-purchase. No longer is it enough to make the checkout process as efficient as possible.
Your customers want inventory look up, direct ordering, delivery information, the option to print or email their receipt; and to be able to pay with cash, credit, debit or mobile payment. They want all of this – and to have it all happen where they stand, whether or not that is at a checkout counter.
