A Trusted Service Partner Is Now More Important Than Ever

Supply chain issues continue to pose challenges for companies that use office laser printers and barcoding equipment such as label printers, scanners, data capture devices, and more.  Computer chip shortages, port congestion, labor shortages, raw material shortages, and unprecedented demand are only a few problems that are causing extended delays in deliverability of this critical equipment, and forecasts for relief range from the second half of this year to at least two years away.

This is putting many companies in a bind.  They depend on laser printers in the front office, as well as barcoding equipment and technology in their manufacturing and logistics to efficiently run their operations.

With All This Uncertainty, Failing To Plan Is Definitely Planning To Fail

Many corporate plans for printer and equipment upgrades have been put on hold due to these supply chain issues.  While you wait for this situation to improve, what’s your plan B?  Who knows how long supply chain problems will continue?  Breakdowns can cause significant heartburn to your company, especially when the replacement equipment is months away from being delivered.

To alleviate these issues, smart companies are currently investing in comprehensive equipment service plans for their existing mission-critical laser printers, barcode label printers, and other barcoding and data capture equipment.  Extending the useful life of your existing equipment can help you get through these shortages and delays, making sure your operations run smoothly while you wait for the new equipment to arrive.

The key is to partner with a service provider who offers a variety of equipment service plans and options; and can customize them to fit your specific needs.  Who can do this?  General Data Service!

Keeping Your Existing Equipment In Top Working Order Protects You From Supply Chain Disruptions

General Data Service has been working with all kinds of companies who are stuck in this situation, where new printers and other equipment they have ordered is being significantly delayed with no good delivery date in sight.  We’re providing proactive maintenance and fast, no-hassle break/fix service to their existing fleet of laser printers, barcode label printers, scanners and data capture devices.  The benefits include: 

 

  • Avoid costly breakdowns
    Consider the cost of downtime of a single step in your business process. Whether it’s a label printer preventing you from shipping products, an office laser printer interrupting your order processing workflow, or a barcode scanner failing to record data, downtime means disruption.

  • Extend equipment life
    Your existing printers, scanners, and mobility equipment can last a long time when properly maintained, and many times can be integrated when new equipment and systems are added.

  • Ensure accuracy
    Faulty equipment can slow workflow, cause inaccuracies in order processing, inventory management, shipping, and every other area of your business that depends on correct data entry.

  • Have peace of mind while waiting for supply chain issues to improve
    As another week brings another notice of extended delays for the printers and other equipment you have on order, you’ll know that your current equipment is reliably keeping your operations humming – and if any issues happen to arise, they will be fixed promptly and completely.
