Leading sports hardware specialist SPORTident tasked Able Systems to create a robust, compact and portable printing system that could be included in its kits. The mobile printers were used by athletes to track and record their performances and results, such as split times during orienteering, fell running and mountain biking events.
The company’s main selling point for its hardware is that it can be used ‘Any time, Any location, Any weather,’ so it was crucial that the printer was portable and had a long battery life. Further to this, it was imperative that is was sturdy enough to withstand the toughest of conditions and provide instant access to printed results. Able Systems’ inkless thermal printing solution ensured that receipts will be consistently clear and legible, to avoid running in wet conditions.
What are portable printers?
Portable printers have been designed for use on the move and at any location. Connectivity is typically achieved using Bluetooth connection allowing retail staff, for example, to print receipts or product information from anywhere in store. Portable printers are lightweight, easy to carry and can print up to 100m or receipts once fully charged.
What are the benefits of portable printers?
The key benefit of portable printers is the flexibility of them to be used almost anywhere. Using a wireless connection, users are able to connect the device to other hardware such as computers or smartphones to provide a complete solution on the go. Being lightweight, portable printers are also easy to carry when offsite at events, trade shows or when performing deliveries.
Additionally, our range of portable printers are now able to be used in conjunction with radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology. This provides a tremendous assistance to retailers in performing tasks such as stock taking and price reduction markdowns.
Tips on using portable printers
A range of professionals commonly use portable printers to complete day-to-day tasks with the highest levels of precision. Law enforcement officers, for example, use portable printers to connect to smartphones and tablets to produce tickets or leaflets such as conditional offer fixed penalty tickets for RTA offences or anti-social behavioural orders. They can also be frequently seen in the hands of delivery drivers to produce receipts and proof of delivery notices.
