TSC Alpha-3R printer helps DRIM quickly and efficiently change price labels
DRIM is a family owned company from Catalonia, Spain specializing in toys and childcare products. While the company constantly strives to provide fun for children and adults, it also wants to create a great work environment for its employees. That's why DRIM wanted an efficient system to label its products and make price changes easier, especially for special offers or during the critical Christmas season.
The quality of the TSC Alpha-3R printer is what drew DRIM’s attention from the outset. And once tested, DRIM made the decision to go with the Alpha-3R for all its stores. The integration of the printers was seamless, only taking half an hour to train users.
Thanks to TSC printers, DRIM can identify each product including the store ID, the standard price and the product reference. With a total of 2,000 references, DRIM efficiently manages all its daily labeling activities, as well as specific promotions like Christmas holiday specials. Our Christmas catalogue has about 1,000 references. In the past, we needed 3 or 4 days to change prices. Now with the Alpha-3R printer, we can achieve the same work in a single morning. In addition, given the ease-of-use of the system, it can be carried out by one person.
According to Raul Lleberia, IT Manager, DRIM benefits in a number of ways by using the TSC printer -- from its compact size, quality construction, intuitive handling, long battery life to its affordable price. Thanks to the Alpha-3R, DRIM realizes efficiencies in man power by reducing the time needed to change prices from one hour to five minutes.
