The trading group BayWa optimises their logistics with DASCOM

The robust MIP480 prints all calibrated data to the highest quality standard
(PresseBox) (Ulm, ) Established in 1923 and based in Munich, BayWa AG is a trading company which operates in the agriculture, building materials and energy sectors. The international trade and services group is active in 16 countries throughout Europe and the United States and employs over 16,000 people. Including franchise partners, the group has some 3,000 sales and service locations and supplies a wide range of trade goods. The main products are grain, fertiliser, animal feed, building materials, heating oil and diesel.

The wideranging business sectors and target markets served by BayWa place particular demands in the areas of transport and logistics. For transportation in the key sector of energy, such as in the supply of heating oil and diesel, the company now offers the robust DASCOM MIP480 dot matrix printers. And for good reason, because the IT requirements in this industry are very demanding. In the transportation business there is a heavy demand for mobile devices. "The capacity, quality and flexibility of printers are essential", says Linda Wörtz, Business Information Manager at BayWa. Being able to withstand large shocks and extreme vibration are the basic requirement for printers that are used in mobile applications in transportation. Nevertheless, the printer should be userfriendly. A clear case for the fast and easy to use MIP480 vehicle printer by DASCOM. Its rugged design and easy paper handling makes it the ideal companion for every truck and tanker.

The MIP480 provides high-quality printing results in the desired A4 format. This is one of the reasons why it is used by BayWa in their transport vehicles. Because with the MIP480, full size receipts can be produced in the best print quality on A4 paper. Previously, only proofs in A5 format were possible. On completion of delivery, thanks to the calibration provided by the accurate Bartec measurement system, an on-the-spot readout can be given for example, of a heating oil delivery, giving a precise measurement which is then entered directly and immediately onto Bay-Wa's invoice. "The print is very legible," said Linda Wörtz. "We deliver the oil, fill the tank completely and immediately print out the invoice. And with the mobile software we can also add additional non-scheduled jobs and charge these onto the same delivery note or invoice, and transfer these immediately to the dispatch point." As well as the receipt (delivery note or invoice) the DASCOM MIP480 can also print unloading lists or transportation documents.

The MIP480 dot matrix printer from DASCOM was developed specifically for printing on the move. "For us it was the ideal output device for use in transportation. With its serial port it fits comfortably into the IT infrastructure and integrates easily with the SAP system," said Florian Neuböck from the company pcsysteme.at, which delivers this mobile solution for BayWa. Moreover, the MIP480 provides enormous flexibility through its multiple connectivity options and small footprint.

The MIP480 was initially recommended to BayWa by its IT subsidiary, RI Solution GmbH. "The robustness and flexibility as well as the print quality of the DASCOM printer simply can't be beaten," says Florian Neuböck satisfied. "We were looking for a complete solution and are really happy," adds Linda Wörtz.
