Online Data Validation paired with Printronix thermal printers guarantees 100% readability and realises ROI in two months

Printronix, Inc., a leading integrated supply-chain printing solutions manufacturer, can save companies with internal logistics and manufacturing applications more than $100,000 over a three-year period. By using Printronixs Online Data Validation (ODV) technology with the T5000r thermal bar code printer, companies are guaranteed 100-per cent readability for every bar code printed. Return on investment (break-even) for the solution can be realised in as little as two months. 

Customers that ship to Wal-Mart or the Department of Defense are under strict bar code compliance regulations and having online data validation will keep profits with the company instead of paying non-compliance fees, said David Sakai, vice president, marketing, Printronix. Our customers including BMW in Germany that use online data validation increased productivity and saved time, which can be measured in the bottom line.

100% Readability without Interruption

Printronixs ODV technology verifies that each image falls well within each bar codes published quality specifications, ensuring an accurate scan at every checkpoint in the supply chain. Using ODVs void-and-reprint technology, if a code on a label fails, it will be cancelled and reprinted automatically. This allows the system to run unattended, minimizing cost and delivering an almost instantaneous ROI. 

Realize Return On Investment in Two Months

Companies with internal logistics and manufacturing applications can save an average of $2,800 per month by using Printronixs T5000r thermal bar code printer with ODV. The return on investment (break-even) for Printronixs T5000r with ODV can be realized in a little more than two months. This can be turned into savings of $103,900 over three years.
