In this economy, employers and companies must get the utmost “bang for their buck.” Devoting any part of the budget to unnecessary expenses and not getting back a return on investments cannot be justified. Luckily, mobile printers help these employers and companies make the most of their operations and employee productivity.
Something as simple as spending a few minutes each day walking to and from stationary printers is the type of thing that stalls productivity, as Greece retailer Jumbo discovered. After equipping employees with DecisionPoint’s mobile printers, Jumbo learned that its employees saved between 45 and 90 minutes per day in walking, making them 80 percent more productive than before. And they’re not the only ones.
Another retailer discovered that employees across 50 of its stores spent an average of 30 minutes a day walking back and forth to retrieve labels and wait for them at a busy printer. Multiply those 30 minutes by the frequent price changes and it comes to 180 wasted hours per store. Not only is this unproductive, it’s also very costly. In fact, those 180 wasted hours added up to more than $90,000 annually in salaries that were generating no return on the investment.
One technology manufacturer had a stationary printer for printing put-away labels just one aisle away from the put-away location — nine steps away to be exact. Yet, utilizing DecisionPoint’s mobile printers still allowed put-away transactions to be completed 62 percent faster. Since time is money, these increases in productivity can have a significant impact on your company’s bottom line.
