The devices are traceable everywhere, thanks to satellite communication, and may be localised via the Internet. Start with the best news: You have »something on the back burner« and starting now Jarltech distributes these tracking systems, exclusively in Europe! The systems are particularly interesting for logistics companies and organizations which are on-the-go outside of their national borders, or in areas with spotty mobile communications coverage. What is important to remember here: satellite-based communication is reliable and independent of mobile communications providers, plus there are no roaming charges – no matter where in the world the person or the object is. The satellite trackers are simply mounted to the vehicle or truck container, or are carried along like a mobile phone. They send short messages to the central receiving station via satellite at pre-determined intervals. With the corresponding tracking/mapping software efficient fleet management suddenly has become both simple and convenient. An alarm sounds upon deviation from the scheduled route, plus additional sensors are capable of monitoring the temperature in the storage area, tire pressure or even the road behavior – plenty of potential for a fantastic solution! THE PRODUCTS – FOUR FOR YOUR SUCCESS: SAT-401: Compact satellite receiver with power connector TAM-242: Battery-operated satellite receiver YOUR MOST IMPORTANT ADVANTAGES: • New sector, yet intriguing for your regular customers • Attractive reseller profit margins • Long-term oriented and multiple earnings opportunities (hardware plus the monthly revenue) • Clear and easy-to-grasp hardware range • Typically large orders with high quantities • Enormous area of usage, many interested customers • Easy to integrate, thanks to practical starter kits Osprey Portable Tracker: Handheld device for tracking people ViewPoint: Software for professional mapping and tracking POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS: • Transportation/Logistics companies • Manufacturers of valuable goods • Taxi companies • Shipping companies • Travel organizers • Transportation services • Oil and gas companies • NGOs, GOs and much more For more information contact your sales representative – simply call today!

Up to now, the SAP employees had to manually assign the production orders storage space, which required several data entry steps. The goal here was to simplify the procedural steps for the employees, and in particular, to ensure for better capture by the barcode reader. Given this task, the Head of Order Processing, Mr. Michael Powell, contacted a systems supplier. Based on the very detailed and comprehensive project preparation, a hardware recommendation for the Datalogic Memor mobile computer was made. In terms of its operation, together with the development platform of the Swedish IT specialists, Raptool, it could simply and easily be programmed individually, so that a quick implementation of the application was possible. During a three-month test phase the simplification of the SAP/ATLAS work was done with an Excel tool. Upon the successful completion of the test phase the Excel table was integrated into an Access databank in order to incorporate additional features, such as filtering according to material number, storage location or order number. In order to expedite the input of individual data corresponding to each production order and every component, Siemens Mobile Computer utilizes the Memor Series from Datalogic. These mobile computers are equipped with a Windows operating system. The scanner’s 2D imager captures all known barcode types, such as linear, stacked and 2D (including GS1 Databar). The advantage of these mobile computers lies in the simple installation and their compact size. The Memor fits into every shirt or pants pocket, yet is fully equipped: touch screen, Wi-Fi connection, imager, Windows operating system, etc. On the mobile devices a suitable application is required for entering and updating data, as with any Windows computer. Particularly in the fields of warehousing, logistics and production software, custom-tailored applications to the specific user needs are often required. The development of such applications with conventional technologies and platforms is usually very time-consuming and therefore extremely cost-intensive. The Raptool application development platform is specifically designed for the use of mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets or mobile computers that run operating systems such as Windows CE, Android or iOS. With it, applications for speeding up and simplifying work processes are developed in a short time, with very little effort and without any programming knowledge. This is the primary reason why Siemens decided against using traditional technology and instead chose this fast environment. The project could be realised, implemented, tested and then put into operation in a short period of time. Later necessary adjustments and expansions are also possible with very little work in the shortest time! The mobile computers can be connected via USB to any PC or laptop, and Raptool will automatically recognise them. The software installs automatically without user intervention for the necessary drivers. Additionally, connection via Wi-Fi can be established. Managing millions of SKUs worldwide every day, with eyes closed. Accelerated processes, time and money saved With Raptool and the Memor mobile computers from Datalogic, Siemens was able to make its warehouse management more flexible. Orders and components may be found with fewer work steps and, above all, faster. For Siemens it was especially important to be able to create new applications without programming knowledge, since their warehouse management continuously expands to include new functions. Thanks to their large memory, the Memor mobile computers offer plenty of memory space for these types of expansions. Thanks to both Raptool and Datalogic, Siemens in Nuremberg now has the necessary flexibility in the warehouse management of their supply storage for manufacturing, in a very short time and with very little investment. Due to the positive experience, the same solution was also introduced at another location – additional locations are sure to follow the Best Practice example. www.datalogic.com Additional information: www.datalogic.com www.raptool.com Regardless of how many stores you operate, how many SKUs you stock, or how many employees you have, Datalogic can help you achieve more.

With the intelligent new generation of POS systems, Epson is offering real advantages, standard. TM-Intelligent technologies open up a wealth of new options to retailers: Aside from printing receipts, coupons from the receipt printer can be provided to loyal customers, and tickets and labels printed for greater flexibility. And thanks to the low amount of space needed for both the POS system and printer it is possible to make effective use of even limited spacial conditions. Epson TM-Intelligent devices also stand out due to their efficiency when it comes to their integration into existing systems: They can be connected to established POS systems through a USB connection, and easily linked via Plug and Play. Since the intelligent systems run extremely efficiently, they also help to reduce costs in the process. The use of mobile devices also makes the POS spatially flexible, and shifts payment to the shop floor or to an additional POS. Thus, queues during the hot sales season, for example, become a thing of the past.
