Retailers and Manufacturers Prefer Colour Carton Labels Printed by the Kiaro!
Track and trace labelling relies on efficiency. In order to meet the strict specifications and regulations of their retailers, manufacturers need to accurately label all of their cartons.
In addition to their requirement for high accuracy, they also have to ensure they avoid costly labelling errors, especially when purchasing pre-printed carton labels.
Reduce Errors & Retain Control with the Kiaro!
The on-site desktop Kiaro! is the state of the art carton label printer that allows for line-of-sight supervision and on-demand label printing, allowing you to oversee the entire printing process in your own facility.
By having a Kiaro! in-house, your ability to oversee the printing process makes it easier to eliminate any costly errors immediately. The Kiaro! inkjet label printer reduces printing errors, cuts costs and saves time.
The ability to print colour visual-cue carton labels with photos, barcodes, part numbers and other automatic identification information allows individuals in the distribution center warehouses to better select the right product. In just minutes, you can print visual-cue labels on demand for each SKU and product.
The Kiaro! Is Ready for System Integration
How many labels does the Kiaro! waste per batch? Zero.
Its robust print drivers can work with most labelling software to give you complete customization of your picture-code labels.
The Kiaro! prints in astonishing 1200 dpi resolution, so whether in your warehouse or retail floor, your labels will always look great.
Plus, the Kiaro! prints at 8 inches per second (that’s 40 feet per minute!) in runs of any size, to ensure your retailers get exactly what they’ve ordered more quickly than ever before.
Quick Fitting Tells It Like It Is…
Quick Fitting is the leading manufacturer of “push connect” plumbing fittings and valves sold at Lowe’s, Tractor Supply Company, Ace Hardware and other major hardware retailers.
They found frequently changing labels to match new retail labelling demands produced a wasteful excess inventory of pre-printed labels that became obsolete over time and were often not delivered fast enough to meet shipping deadlines.
“Quick Fitting has a lot of different products, a lot of different packaging and a lot of different features to those products,” says Quick Fitting CEO, David Crompton.
Quick Fitting was able to cut its costs by 40% when it began printing its own retail plumbing labels just-in-time with the Kiaro! inkjet label printer.
“The quality of the label that we get from the Kiaro! … is better and more consistent than the labels that we were getting from the outside,” says Crompton, “It allows us a flexibility we didn’t have in the past. If we ran out of labels – if we were even short by 30 labels – it cost us a shipment. With the Kiaro! we just simply walk over to the unit and print out some more labels.”
“When using the Kiaro! you get to see the labels printed right in front of you” says Eric Sanches, Production Coordinator at Quick Fitting, “if there are any mistakes in the label design, you get to fix them, right then and there, versus receiving labels from an outside printer, and they’re all wrong and you have to wait days just to get correct ones. It cut our time by more than 80%.”
