Handheld fulfills record order to world-leading package delivery company

Handheld Group has received a record order for its newly launched SP500X ScanPrinter, an innovative wearable solution used for package sorting and printing across the customer’s distribution facilities.

The wearable SP500X ScanPrinter eliminates the need for printed labels and combines 2D imaging, inkjet printing and wireless communication in one device. As a hand-mounted device, it scans a package and transmits the information to the warehouse management system (WMS) which recognises the package and identifies where it should go. That information comes back instantly, and the device then prints directly on the package without the need for labels.

Built around inkjet printer technology licensed from Hewlett-Packard (HP) it enhances package sorting and inventory management operations.

“We’ve been looking forward to fulfilling the first massive order,” says Jim Rimay CEO of Handheld US.

”It is a great achievement in challenging times to build and deliver such a key device to a customer of this stature. We are proud to once again have been chosen to supply mission-critical products to a global leader,” said Thomas Löfblad, CEO, Handheld Group. “It highlights our success in closely partnering with customers to bring increased efficiency, greater usability and high value to their operations.”
