- Manufacturing - light work-in-process tracking, inventory management
- Transportation & logistics - order picking and packing, shipping and receiving, and compliance labelling
- Retail - warehouse logistics and back-of-store applications
- Healthcare - specimen labelling and pharmacy labelling
"This is an exciting time for bar code printers and other AIDC technologies as new adopters are turning to these technologies. The ZT200 answers the market need of small and medium-sized businesses interested in these technologies to increase business efficiencies," said Richard Hughes-Rowlands. "We are thrilled to bring this product to customers around the world via our strategic alliances and industry-leading channel partners."
The new line of printers fit into customers' existing enterprises and is durable and able to withstand harsh environments. Also, the ZT200 series helps limit ownership costs and maximises printer uptime because it is easy to connect to the network and maintain without the use of tools while the intuitive user interface simplifies the user's learning curve for the product. In addition, the ZT200 printers address a number of customer needs with its design, which is a smaller size to fit into crowded workspaces and which features a bi-fold door, making it easier to change the media when the printer is used in a cramped space.
"Our testing of the ZT200 printer was very positive, we particularly like the size of the new printer and the reduction in space needed to reload supplies," said Madhav Rao, CIO, Lulu Group, one of the largest retail chains in the Gulf region.
