What our integration with BB Data can do for you?
What does the solution include?
Labelprint and Lagerskan have been developed in collaboration with BB Data and include both hardware, programming, software, and labels.
The solution operates using a handheld terminal that scans a barcode on a shipment. From there, it communicates directly with the Dropboy platform, retrieving and delivering the necessary data to print shipping labels with route details.
With the integration, it is easy to sort the deliveries into the correct routes. Subsequently, a label is automatically printed and can be affixed to the box. When the label is printed, it is updated in the Dropboy platform.
The solution functions by scanning and identifying any missing packages and orders.
With the integration, it is easy to obtain a comprehensive overview of any potentially missing packages when the goods are received at the terminal. The solution is used, among other things, to confirm the actual receipt of goods and update the shipper regarding any deficiencies before distribution begins.
Hardware and software
Hardware is a significant part of the solution. The Zebra TC26 handheld terminal is used to scan the boxes. The Zebra ZQ230 and ZD420 printers are used to print labels that are affixed to the boxes.
A user interface has been developed where the software is implemented on the handheld terminal.
The user interface is developed with user login and implemented with an error handling system.
The NFC Bluetooth connection ensures that the label is automatically printed on the connected printer after scanning.
The label is developed in ZPL, which is a way to design labels and determine how they will look when printed.
Soti Management is a tool used, for remote management of handheld terminals. By using Soti on the handheld terminals, BB Data can quickly and easily provide remote support in case of technical issues.
The solution is developed for Android 10 and will work with all Zebra Bluetooth label printers.
