As customers, we have all seen and interacted with visual displays in retail environments, trade shows, exhibitions, hotels, airports, and the list goes on. Visual displays and marketing structures are everywhere! The challenge for one of the largest American manufacturers of visual display products was the lack of uniformity between different SKU’s and products. Visual displays can range from a common polycarbonate display for sheets of paper that you place on your counter to an overhanging display that covers 1,000’s of square feet above a trade show booth. When shipping and warehousing these items, it is important to know their exact size and weight. This helps to properly utilize storage space, but also avoid costly mistakes when shipping oversized items across the country. After thoughtful consideration of large freight dimensioning equipment, this customer chose one of our most flexible and inexpensive options, the CubeTape. The CubeTape is a hand-held mobile data collection device that captures dimensions digitally for large or small items. It is truly a smart tape measure. The CubeTape includes a built-in barcode scanner for capturing the product ID, then captures L, W, and H. Data can be stored directly onto the device in batch, or connected to a PC or Tablet via Bluetooth. In the end the CubeTape saves this customer countless hours capturing dimensions during the receiving process, and entering data directly into their WMS. If you have a project that required dimensional data collection, let Walz Label and Mailing Systems help discover the right product for you.
