“The driving factor for World Kitchen’s integration of Printronix Auto ID’s ODV was to eliminate chargeback fees from our customers due to poor barcode readability.” – Terry Moore, System/SharePoint Admin III, World Kitchen, LLC
Unscannable barcodes were causing costly compliance fees, shipping delays and operation downtime. For the most part, compliance fines (chargebacks) were due to poor barcode scanability. This became a very serious and costly issue for World Kitchen as the company was paying thousands of dollars a month in fees. Additionally, these unscannable bar codes delayed deliveries to department stores, mass merchants and other customers around the world. Lastly, manually tracing, isolating and fixing the source printer that produced the unscannable label was costly and labor-intensive.
Costly compliance fines and the resolve to end inefficiency throughout shipping operations prompted the need for the integrated Printronix Auto ID Printer with an Online Data Validation (ODV™) combination. The Printronix thermal barcode printers with ODV verified that printed barcode labels were 100 percent machine readable, 100 percent of the time.
As a result of adopting this integrated solution, World Kitchen was able to effectively eliminate compliance fines and has saved the company thousands of dollars a year.
