Mobile printing increases efficiency at Twickenham Cricket Club October 18th, 2018
Thanks to thermal printing solutions, many organisations are finding that their printing requirements are no longer a challenge.
Take Twickenham Cricket Club for example, where spectators expect to see quick deliveries on and off the field.
Twickenham CC chose a solution provided by BlueStar partner Citizen Systems Europe to help record attendance and also provide innovative additional revenue opportunities through sponsorship and participation.
Event tickets not only need to provide the all essential information but are also the venue’s shop window. Twickenham required quality tickets with quality printing to portray a quality event.
They originally thought this meant an expensive printer but thanks to the Citizen CL-S400DT they were able to produce excellent tickets at a fraction of the cost of other suppliers. The equipment is extremely easy to use, and an evening’s work can now be completed in a matter of minutes.
Even club captain Paul Johnson was surprised by the speed of the CT-S851 printer: “We normally use pre-printed betting slips which are a further cost, but the speed of CT-S851 is the quickest I have seen.” He continued, “This meant we were able to print individual slips and we could also increase the size to 15cm, which gave us space to give each sponsor additional exposure and printing each slip in half a second helped to keep queues short.
In March, Citizen launched the CMP-40L - a hand-held, hard-wearing, long-lasting and easy to operate printer, which is perfect for fast and reliable printing on the move.
With easy operation, simple connectivity, long battery charge and a built-in label peeler, the CMP-40L needs very little assistance once it is set up for use. This functionality in one unit makes it an ideal printer for labels and delivery notes in logistics, price mark-downs in retail, receipts in restaurants, bars and cafes as well as on-the-spot tickets for transport use, parking and traffic violations, even for issuing entry passes for people waiting in line.
With an impressive IP54 ingress protection rating, the durable CMP-40L has been designed to withstand dust ingress and be unaffected by water splashing. As the printer is likely to be used at height when labelling packages, it has also passed the 1.8 metre drop-test.
Earlier this year, Citizen also launched the CMP-25L 2-inch label and receipt printer that delivers ultimate portability and high-performance operation in a robust casing.
It features easy paper loading via a clamshell mechanism, drop-in paper loading and paper-out indicators ensuring straightforward label refills on the go. The CMP-25L is easy to configure and, with a range of media types, it can be easily tailored to deliver print outs to suit all user preferences. Thanks to the integral tear bar cutting, individual labels and receipts are extremely simple to produce.
