“When we decided to use RFID printers at the Grabow and Arnstadt facilities, we decided on Printronix Auto ID because its high-performance printers can print both barcode (EAN 128) and RFID labels direct from SAP.” – Ulrich Kasten, IT manager, Grabower Süsswaren Holding
Grabower Süsswaren Holding needed a print solution that could easily integrate with the existing SAP system and internal Windows network. In addition, the printers had to be absolutely reliable, work accurately and guarantee perfect service. Printer system integrator, PUR PRINT SYSTEME GmbH and good references from the food industry drew Grabower’s attention to Printronix Auto ID.
Trusting PUR PRINT SYSTEME GmbH’s recommendations, Grabower decided to deploy RFID midrange thermal and line matrix printers from Printronix. This proved to be the ideal solution, since they could be integrated seamlessly with the existing SAP system and interfaced with their existing printer languages.
Integrated in company’s network Grabower Süsswaren Holding has been managing its whole stock control system using SAP R/3 since 2002. PUR PRINT SYSTEME GmbH leveraged the newly installed Printronix printers and integrated them with the company’s internal Windows network with eight servers and more than seventy clients.
The new Printronix equipment allows Grabower the flexibility and precision it needs by printing the required RFID or barcode labels directly from SAP. A direct connection to SAP enables the system to recognize if RFID or barcode labels are needed. Now, the Grabower group of companies can meet customers’ specific requirements and respond flexibly to new demands in supply chain management at any time.
