As the company grew, it began to experience challenges related to the dispatch of parts from its spare parts warehouse to regional warehouses and business partners. The cost of inventory was skyrocketing and shipments were being delayed due to slow processing. Additionally, Tata Motors began to discover the proliferation of counterfeit parts in the marketplace. With multiple locations, but a centralized SAP software solution already in place, Tata Motors needed a barcoding alternative that would integrate well with SAP to solve its immediate problems while scaling for future company growth.
The Printronix team worked with Tata Motors to create a barcoding print solution that would solve these immediate needs. As such, Printronix recommended our strongest offering, the T5206r, in order to increase the label throughput and reduce label processing time.
To support efforts against spare-part counterfeiting, our team deployed a modified version of the T5000 four-inch barcode printer, based on the T4M platform, to produce smaller custom labels.
Leveraging the Printronix T4M and T5206r solutions, the Printronix team helped Tata Motors design labels that would seamlessly integrate with the company’s existing SAP databases.
Using the Printronix T4M and T5206r, Tata Motors Passenger Car Business Unit has increased the speed at which it is filling spare part orders for regional warehouses and its business partners.
