Let your printer help reconcile deliveries

It’s always best practice to tag plants at the exact moment they’re coming off the vendor’s truck. Print the tags for the upcoming day’s deliveries so you’ll be ready when the trucks arrive. As we all know, counting plants is one of the hardest tasks human beings have ever attempted. If you tag plants as they come off the truck, you have a safety net. If the truck is empty and you still have tags in your hand, you know you got shorted. You then inform your vendor and you don’t pay for plants you didn’t receive. By using this simple practice, your label printer can help save you money and time.



Software upgrades: Why they’re important.

You’ve heard, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” With the interconnectivity of computer operating systems, internet browsers, cloud services and business software, you may rethink that. As older systems are no longer supported by upgraded software, you could experience a gap in workflow if all your software isn’t kept up to date. When you receive notice that software updates are available (or needed) check if your business-essential software is compatible. If it is, go ahead and upgrade. If it isn’t, look into what it will take to upgrade. Keeping all your software current will maintain the stability and efficiency of your business.
