Today's economy is challenging companies to improve productivity and customer satisfaction while simultaneously reducing expensive overhead. For companies with a substantial
field workforce, mobile printing technology is a proven
solution that can be integrated into an existing warehouse
enterprise management system, producing significant benefits.
Mobile printers utilize wireless technology — Bluetooth, infrared connectivity, wireless local area networks, or enterprise wireless networks — to instantly print
invoices, tickets, and labels with the same quality found
in standalone printers. Many mobile printers also include
a magnetic strip to process credit card payments. Since
they are easy to carry, operate, and maintain, mobile
printers are an ideal tool for the field.
