Lowry Solutions has Zebra mobile printing technology

Many businesses have mobilized their work forces and created automated workflows with mobile computers. But if you want to take productivity and efficiency to the next level, mobile printers are, logically, the next step.

Mobile printers offer a way to bring label, tag, and receipt printing to virtually any location inside or outside the four walls. Workers can print in a warehouse aisle, on a forklift, in a delivery vehicle, or even at a customer’s door. It’s all easily achieved by taking the printer anywhere or having workers “wear” one by attaching it to a shoulder or belt strap.

This means there’s no longer a need to pre-print a batch of barcode labels or go back and forth between warehouse aisles and a stationary printer. It also means you can eliminate errors that easily occur when trying to match batch-printed labels with corresponding products or when there are delays between printing a label and applying it.

Printing at the point of label application simplifies and shortens the entire process and eliminates extra steps. Workers can pick, pack, ship, and deliver products faster and more accurately and efficiently, which results in better overall fulfillment.

Additionally, when using mobile printers outside the four walls, drivers can print invoices and receipts on the go—inside a vehicle or even at a customer’s doorstep or loading dock.

Best of all, you can integrate your mobile printers with the rest of your industrial or desktop printers, so the same labeling functionality and processes are available from any stationary or mobile printer.

All you need is a Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connection for your mobile printers, which can be paired easily with companion mobile computers.

For the best results and unparalleled options, performance, and durability, our team at Lowry Solutions recommends using Zebra mobile printers paired with Zebra mobile computers and stationary printers.
