One key for any start-up is how to market the product or service.  Web marketing is not only effective if done well, it is very cost-effective.   With effective SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and great content, the business is able to reach millions of potential customers.

Website analytics

Today websites are used as the main communication and promotional channels. Company website needs to be well-designed, responsive and it also needs to offer lots of good-quality and niche-specific content to potential customers. Best way to check website’s functionality, popularity and conversion is by using website analytics.

There are plenty of free website analytics apps, but Google Analytics is definitely the most popular one. It offers great analytic package for a free app and it is used by many top rated websites. Google analytics can track multiple websites, social networking activity and measure conversion rates. It also has a smartphone app that enables entrepreneurs to track their website analytics anywhere, and at any time.

Content management systems

Today companies don’t need to hire web designers for creating their web presentations. Easy to use content management systems like: WordPress, Joomla and Drupal enable them to take over web design tasks and save lots of funds while doing that.

WordPress is by far the most customizable and easy-to-use software of this kind. It comes with huge number of free and paid themes that are created by their big developer’s community. There are also plugins that support website’s work and add advanced features to the theme framework. On top of all this, WordPress comes with very innovative and practical dashboard that enables people without technical knowledge to easily run develop advanced web presentations.

More than 305 million companies are being founded by more than 472 million entrepreneurs, in the world, each year. With competition this tough, each startup needs to use all available help it can get. Technology solutions can definitely provide great help to entrepreneurs, but even with the most advanced tech their startup’s future depends on their knowledge, agility and dedication.

Many startups fail during first few years of their development. Period that follows company foundation is usually the hardest and it requires hard work and dedication, by both entrepreneurs and other members of their team. Many entrepreneurs are not able to withstand this type of pressure and work-related stress that piles up every day. That’s why they need to use all useful pieces of available tech they can get, to make theirs and their employee’s work more efficient. In this article we reviewed software solutions that can help startups grow, in initial phases of their development.

Document tracking software

Startups deal with thousands of important documents and sometimes it is really hard to track them all. Almost every entrepreneur experienced a missing document problem, at least once during their career. Luckily Dynamic Systems Inc has an easy applicable solution for this common startup problem, which comes in the form of document tracking software.

This software can be used for tracking both digital and physical documents. It groups various types of digital files together, including: documents, hyperlinks, photos, etc. For tracking physical document copies, software uses different types of labels that range from removable adhesives to bar codes. Use of document tracking software makes entrepreneur’s job much easier, especially in the period of startup foundation and initial development.

Cloud storages

Cloud storages are much more practical than physical ones. Cloud software also doesn’t require any hardware or infrastructure to store terabytes of business files. That’s why cloud storages are very practical for startups and small companies. There are plenty different cloud storage services that offer limited free space and can also be upgraded to paid packages that usually come with one or a few terabytes of space.

When choosing storage that suits startup the most, entrepreneurs should pay close attention to features that are on the offer. It is advisable to choose encrypted cloud storage, because they offer encryption for sensitive business files. Encryption is especially important today, because of growing cybercrime rates.

Project management apps

Startups often need to outsource part of their business and hire professional help, outside the company premises. Syncing tasks done by both in-premise and outside team members can sometimes become a huge drag. Solution for this lies in using efficient work-scheduling and project-managing software.

Trello is one of the best and the most affordable project-management applications out there. It functions on a freemium business model, and offers basic package free of charge. Trello functions on the basis of kanban paradigm, developed by Toyota, which uses the system of task cards that are moved through different columns depending on the stage of task’s development.

Discussed next will be software utilities to assist with Web marketing.

ROI graphicIt’s close to year end and you are in the midst of Strategic and Tactical Planning.  What will you do in 2016 to improve and grow your business?  Your staff probably has many ideas, so how to decide which are the best to implement?  Too often we as business owners hesitate to make changes and adopt new ideas – especially when they will cost us money.  But what is the cost of doing nothing?  What will we lose in productivity and opportunity?

Another term for the “cost of doing nothing” is “opportunity cost.”  If you aren’t prepared to make the investment in the personnel or infrastructure required for responding to opportunities in your marketplace, you are, in effect, losing money.  If you aren’t willing to invest in the equipment, software or processes that will save you money through increased efficiencies, you are also missing an opportunity.  These costs are often invisible to you as the business owner, so how do you account for the sale you never got or for the increased productivity you never realized?

Use the tools available to you to assist in making these decisions.  Return on Investment Calculators will help you determine how fast a new asset will pay for itself in reduced costs or increased productivity.  There are forecasting models that can help determine the possibility of increased sales.  If you belong to an industry association, they may have resources they can provide to help in the planning process.  Check the internet for industry statistics or testimonials from other business owners regarding positive investments they have made in their companies.

The bottom line is that companies who “Do Nothing” eventually don’t exist.  Take the plunge – the water is fine!

As we move toward the end of another year, what new or emerging technologies and trends can we look forward to seeing in 2016?  Here are just a few to watch:

Android Mobile Operating System – There is a good deal of speculation as to whether Microsoft will really be ending support of Win Mobile.  Current dates for end of support range from 2017 to 2020.  In any case, it’s clear the Microsoft wants its user base to move to the Windows 10 model.  That leaves companies with barcode mobile scanners using Win Mobile wondering what to do.  Application developers also need to begin planning their future platform.  Android looks like the overwhelming choice.  Its security features are good and there are more and more development tools available.

V-TagRFID – Will RFID finally become main stream?  That remains to be seen.  There are still no global standards, the RFID labels & tags are still expensive compared to barcode labeling, and there are still few software providers that have the middleware to manage RFID data input.  While costs are coming down, education for end users has been lacking.  RFID doesn’t work everywhere (water, metal interfere with the signals) and the general concept of “scan the room and know everything in it” is far from a reality.  However, there are new and creative RFID technologies emerging.  One such new technology is the V-Chip “mesh” network, whose concept is to bounce active RFID signals from chip to chip in a “mesh” pattern to locate larger expensive assets.

SaaS – This technology has taken off for some applications.  When the workers are mobile (salespeople, construction workers) it makes sense to host their applications in the cloud where they can access their data from anywhere.  However, not everyone wants to pay for the software forever.  It remains to be seen if SaaS continues to grow as companies realize they’ve paid over and over for the same software.  As remote computing becomes more sophisticated, we may see the growth rate for SaaS slow down.

There are just three of many new technology trends that we will see in 2016 as our world becomes more sophisticated and connected.

Internet of ThingsThe Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects or “things” embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity, which enables these objects to collect and exchange data. (Wikipedia).

Think about your Apple devices.  The iPhone offers so many online possibilities and talks to other devices such as the new Apple Watch.  Internet connectivity has become a necessity for most of society today.

From an industrial viewpoint, the Internet of Things will enable constant communication within the Supply Chain.  Increased productivity comes when the machine used in the factory can alert the maintenance center of an impending problem.  For example, Zebra Technologies’ barcode printers can monitor the remaining life of its printheads and alert IT to the end-of-life, allowing time to replace the part before it causes a work stoppage.

Geo-locating systems track route-delivery vehicles and calculate the optimum travel time; shipping containers are quickly located in the vast storage areas of our water ports; critically ill patients are monitored remotely via an Internet connection.  Cloud Computing has become common place.  A few years ago none of this was possible, but the Internet of Things is exploding with the improvement in mobile technology.

Security then becomes a huge issue as “things” are continually connected online.  How do we avoid cyber-terrorism?  One security expert believes that Artificial Intelligence is the answer.  Teach our computers to protect themselves, learning to identify the signs of a cyber-attack and to throw up firewalls as needed.

Are we moving toward the world of “Big Brother” from the novel 1984?  Each of us can be tracked by locating our cell phones; the NSA is listening to our phone conversations.  Whether we like it or not, the IoT is here to stay.  As business people we must learn how to maximize its possibilities for increased communication and productivity.  And we should be doing this sooner rather than later.

Traceability – A New Concept? 5 Questions to Ask http://dynamic-systemsinc.com/traceability-new-concept-5-questions-ask/ Fri, 26 Jun 2015 18:57:46 +0000 http://dynamic-systemsinc.com/?p=11322 We are hearing a lot about “traceability” these days where there is risk to human health or life.    It is not a new concept.  The barcode industry was talking about “track, trace, count” in the late 1970’s and rightly so.  Barcode technology is uniquely able to provide traceability using technology that is affordable for even […]

Food Production Supply ChainWe are hearing a lot about “traceability” these days where there is risk to human health or life.    It is not a new concept.  The barcode industry was talking about “track, trace, count” in the late 1970’s and rightly so.  Barcode technology is uniquely able to provide traceability using technology that is affordable for even the smaller businesses.

There are some key issues involved in providing “cradle to grave” traceability.  Multiple parts may be installed in one device.   Some problems may be more due to the tools used than the parts – they may be out of calibration, for example.  Fresh food will be commingled and re-boxed as it moves through the supply chain making it more difficult and cumbersome to maintain lot tracking.

Traceability is typically a component of a broader software solution.  If a traceability module has been added, for example, to an ERP system, and not designed as an integral part of the software, data entry will be time-consuming and the system may be unable to handle some of the complexities of tracking multiple lots at a time.

Here are some questions to ask before investing in a Traceability System:

  1. How is real-time data entry for Lots managed as they physically move through our process and how do you maintain data accuracy?
  2. How do you manage commingling and re-boxing functions?
  3. If Lots are commingled, can you identify the cartons that contain each lot?
  4. Is there a way to identify the tool or machine that is involved in the manufacturing or installation process for a specific Lot?
  5. Will your system require me to change my current process or procedures?

Here are the answers you hope to hear:

  1. Data entry for Lots happens “on the fly” as they move through the process using barcode or another type of fast, accurate data entry.
  2. Commingling and Re-boxing are an integral part of the Traceability system.  The Lot Traceability reporting will provide complete information from each step that affects any specific Lot.
  3. All containers are “serialized”, and the contents are tracked.  If there are multiple Lots in a single container, they are specifically identified and can be tracked backwards and forwards.
  4. Machinery can be recorded as an “attribute” of production and tracked to specific Lots.
  5. The software Is flexible and configurable.  We may make recommendations as to process changes, but those would be process improvements, not changes to accommodate the software design.

There are many choices.  Make sure you focus on ease of use, accuracy, complete traceability and flexibility within your current product flow.

Why Do Custom Labels Cost So Much? http://dynamic-systemsinc.com/custom-labels-cost-much/ Tue, 17 Mar 2015 17:26:09 +0000 http://dynamic-systemsinc.com/?p=11078 There is more to the process of manufacturing a label than you might think.  The process has several steps at the simplest and many steps if the label is complex.

custom labels

There is more to the process of manufacturing a label than you might think.  The process has several steps at the simplest and many steps if the label is complex.

The process begins with a large roll of blank material, which is purchased from one of a few material manufacturers who take paper or synthetic and add the adhesive and the coating required for thermal printing.

custom labels

Your label converter then cuts this material to size using a metal “die”.  This is a cylinder with a raised sharp outline of the label shape and size.  If you order an irregular sized label, you may incur a “die charge”.  (If you are told your die is being sent out for sharpening, it is the raised outline that has become dull.)

Label converting die

When finished label has any “preprinted” image the die-cut result is then sent through a type of printing process.  The colored ink is pressed onto the label by an etched plate that is on a roller in the converting equipment.  If there is more than one color on the label, each color would have a separate plate.  This process adds a good deal of complexity to the conversion of a label since not only does the press need to be set up for the printing process, but the “registration” of the label is critical to making sure the print goes on the correct place.

Plate for label printing

The final step is to take the large roll of finished labels and roll it onto the appropriately sized “core” with the appropriate roll width for the specific barcode printer you are using.

How Do You Save Money When Ordering Custom Labels?

Besides simplifying your requirements (one color rather than several, for example), there are ways to save money:

  • Order as many as you can at one time.  Setting up the press to convert even a simple label takes time, but, once done, an unlimited number can be produced.  The set-up costs are amortized over the full run, so the more you order the less the per label set-up costs.
  • Discuss materials with your supplier.  There is a wide variety of options for synthetics and for adhesives.  Also, some converters specialize in, for example, high or low temperature labels.  They purchase large quantities of raw materials, and the savings can be passed on.
  • Use a label reseller/broker.  It may seem that cutting out the middle-man is a good idea, but a reliable reseller has multiple sources for your label.  Besides leading you through the design process, he can select the one or two converters who specialize in your type of label and can negotiate pricing for you.

To get the best quality label at the best price is your goal, and understanding the process can help you achieve it.

In the past 2 years there have been significant moves to consolidate manufacturers in the mature barcode industry.  The resulting landscape is settling out to be 2 major players in the business and a few smaller manufacturers on the periphery.   There were some minor acquisitions made earlier, but 2013-2014 was the year of the “big moves”.

Jan Blog

 Honeywell, who had entered the barcode industry through acquisitions of Handheld Products and Metrologic in 2012, was the first company to make a move by purchasing the best-known and arguably the longest-standing company in the industry:  Intermec.  Honeywell has stated their plan to become the “largest company in the barcode industry”, and this acquisition was a bold move to achieve that goal.  It grew the Honeywell AIDC division to over $1billion and expanded Honeywell’s product line to include printers and wireless infrastructure.  And in a surprise move, Honeywell announced its acquisition of printer manufacturer Datamax, to be completed as of March 2015.

Then in 2014, Zebra Technologies announced its acquisition of Motorola Solutions, who had acquired Psion in 2007.  This move consolidated one of the largest scanning and mobility companies with the largest independent manufacturer of barcode printers, rivaling Honeywell in sales and product breadth.

So who is still independent of these two giants?  Surprisingly many of them are not owned by US companies.   Mobility and scanner companies include Datalogic, based in Eugene, Oregon but owned by an Italian company, and Unitech, headquartered in Taiwan.   As for independent barcode printer companies the largest are Japan’s Citizen and Sato.

What does this mean to you, the customer?

THE GOOD NEWS is that you have two companies who can offer the full solution for barcode projects: printer/mobility/scanning/wireless infrastructure.   There are advantages to dealing with the same company for a full barcode-based solution.

  • No finger-pointing:  working with a single point of contact will eliminate the question as to who is responsible when things go wrong.
  • Guaranteed compatibility:  you know all your hardware and utilities will work together.
  • Wireless Mobility Expertise:  we’ve found that tablets and laptops, while they are “mobile” are not actively roaming, and the same wireless configuration that works for them does not work well for mobile barcode devices.  It takes a different design with the expertise to set up a responsive wireless network for mobile barcode scanners that are continually roaming.  The two largest barcode manufacturers are able to install and configure a wireless network for roaming mobility devices.

Also, you may find that the smaller companies in the industry may become much more price-competitive in an attempt to grow rapidly.  And if history repeats itself, there will be new, smaller companies that arrive on the horizon, who are more flexible and agile.  This all bodes well for the end user.

THE BAD NEWS is that in the interim:

  • There are two primary drivers of the barcode industry very involved learning how to integrate already large companies into one larger company.
  • Some of the smaller companies may not be able to compete and will disappear.  There will probably be more mergers and consolidations to come as they struggle to compete.
  • And technology innovations may stall for a while as all of these companies strive to get grounded in this new landscape.

This is the time to rely on your Reseller community.  We are plugged into “behind the scenes” .  We’ll be able to give you advice as to which company will respond best to your immediate and future needs.  As in all things, this cycle will end – we wonder what will happen next!

 WarehouseA research study of distribution centers conducted in 2013 by Vanson Bourne, a market research company in the UK, reported these key findings:

  • Managers are focused on improving productivity within the warehouse by using technology to save steps and improve accuracy.
  • Picking accuracy was at the top of the list for technology improvement.
  • Recent trends include improved management of returned goods, adoption of “Hardware as a Service” and use of RFID and Voice technologies.

Statistics show that nearly 3,000 hours per year are lost due to inefficient processes – all of which could be improved with the adoption of mobile technology.  And surprisingly, over 25% of the distribution centers in the US are still using pencil and paper to record transactions.

Due to increased pressure for distribution center managers to improve productivity and save money, many are afraid of making the wrong step.  They aren’t sure where to start, but they are being forced to take action.

If your company is one of the over 25% that has not automated the warehouse at all, the first place to start would be in the area of inventory accuracy – labeling and counting inventory using barcodes or RFID.  This one project would have the following benefits:

  • Reducing shrinkage – result of accurate receiving, accurate shipping and accurate inventory counts
  • Reducing labor time to count inventory – result of utilizing fast barcode scanning
  • Increased accuracy  with no transposition or other data entry errors – barcode scanning is 99%+ accurate
  • Reducing or eliminating data entry time – upload the information in real-time from the barcode device

Barcode systems are prevalent in almost all businesses today.  Any business that delivers “hard” goods or services can realize the benefits of barcoding for  accurate information and increased productivity, results of a well thought out barcode system.4820i Manuf-03[1]

Companies typically justify the purchase of a barcode system by:

  • Calculating the cost of errors
    • Shipping errors from picking the wrong items; the cost of rectifying such an error runs $35 to $70 per error.
    • Data entry errors happen one in every 300 keystrokes, even by a great typist.  That means 36% of all orders in the packaged goods industry contain a costly error.
    • Determining the savings from increased productivity – typically an increase in productivity by 40% after installing a barcode system.  When any organization can “do more with less” the savings fall directly to the bottom line.

Added to these calculated benefits should be the “soft and indirect” benefits of a barcode system.  This further impact can improve the cash flow and profitability of a company as much as improved productivity and reduced errors.  Soft or indirect benefits include:

  • Improved customer service – The cost of attaining new customers is one of the hidden expenses in any company.  By tracking the status of jobs in a production plant, eliminating shipping errors and providing immediate information for the sales team barcode systems improve customer service and retention.  The results are happy customers who come back again and again.
  • Improved employee morale – Companies are often surprised at how a good system can improve employees’ attitudes.  When there is accurate information, fewer errors and happy customers, employees feel a relief and are happier with their jobs.  The result is less turnover and improved productivity.
  • Improved quoting – Companies who quote custom jobs (job shops, construction companies, etc.) will be more accurate in their quoting if they know the exact costs of a similar job.  They can use a barcode system to track exact labor hours.
  • Increased sales – Better management of inventories and timely, accurate information flow give salespeople the tools they need to close more orders.

Systems that use barcode are affordable and practical for more businesses than ever before.  Download the White Paper:  Adopting Automated Data Collection for SMBs.
