Why VARs Can’t Dismiss RFID

For several years vendors, analysts, and solutions providers have tried in vain to predict “the year for RFID.” But, serious obstacles such as expensive tags, slow read rates, inaccurate reads, and impenetrable obstacles such as liquids and metals have kept RFID from reaching its full potential.

With all that said, RFID technology has recently made significant strides. Whether you’re a potential user of RFID technology or an IT solutions provider/VAR, now is a good time to take a second look at the real state of RFID.

The New Zebra ZT200 Series

June 26, 2012

It is always nice to see a new model printer from our friends at Zebra.

The ZT200 does include some improvements (as we’d expect) including the better operator interface (similar to the Xi4), a bi-fold door to reduce the amount of space needed for the install and faster printhead swapping. Loading the media should be simpler as well – this will be much appreciated as the older Zebras could be a bit tricky.

Why use a Warehouse Management System (WMS)?

May 10, 2012

Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) have long been a critical part of efficient processes for large warehouses. But the cost of implementing and maintaining these systems were too expensive for small to medium warehouses. Now there is Good News for all warehouse managers.

Computer technology advances over the past number of years have created an environment which permits warehouse managers to use Warehouse Management Systems through affordable subscription plans.
