Maxa Technologies Ltd (Maxatec), leading provider of receipt and label printing products, has supplied ANC with Cognitive Advantage™ printers to speed up the package labelling process in ANC’s depots across the UK and around the world.
ANC (now part of the FedEx group) is principally engaged in express delivery services throughout the United Kingdom and the rest of the world. The company had 2 hubs in the UK dealing with up to 130,000 parcels per night.
The reason for change at ANC
ANC were using large, expensive, industrial label printers for consignment labelling and barcoding. They wanted to update to a more compact printer, with smaller footprint without compromising on speed and efficiency, and that was rugged enough to be used in a
Various printers were tested and ANC selected the CognitiveTPG Advantage™ printer. The CognitiveTPG Advantage™ barcode label printer fulfilled all the criteria – high speed, competitively priced, small footprint and rugged design. The Advantage™ printer was the superior price-performance solution.
ANC provides a ‘Deliverance 2000 system’, which includes software and label printer, to each of its customers. This system enables them to produce barcoded address labels and ensures total accuracy of shipment information.
Neil Clifton, Field Support Engineer at ANC said: “ANC’s operating divisions provide a comprehensive range of distribution and logistics related services to meet the needs of particular businesses and markets. We needed a very efficient printer system in place to meet all our demands.”
The advantages of the new system
The Advantage™ printer has an extremely low cost of ownership and is very economical to maintain. The system is easy to use which means end-users don’t require any training to operate the printer. ANC has around 3000 printers installed in-the-field, and their helpdesk receive very few calls related to print problems.
ANC uses Advantage™ direct thermal printers. Direct thermal technology does not require the use of ribbons – so costs are reduced and minimum time is taken to re-load the printer. Drop-in paper loading also means it’s extremely quick and easy to load new rolls of labels.
Advantage printers can easily print 5,000 labels per day and are tough enough to withstand the rigors of logistics and warehouse environments.
