Top 3 Tips for Choosing a Coding Provider

It can be difficult to choose a marking, coding and labeling equipment provider with so many available.  These tips will help you find the best provider for your business:

    1. 1.  Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) – This seems like an obvious consideration, but year after year manufacturing companies new to marking and coding make equipment purchases that cost them big over time.  Ensure you understand your ongoing costs for equipment parts, consumables and service as well as downtime costs associated with routine maintenance before making a purchase.  TCO varies widely from manufacturer to manufacturer.

    1. 2.  Ease of Use – Can your line operators easily change messages, refill fluids or labels and perform preventative maintenance with as little impact to uptime as possible?  Equipment that is the easiest to use and most reliable features design elements that are engineered directly into the machines (as opposed to being applied after-market).

    1. 3.  Service Support Structure – Coding providers who are most responsive to your needs have field service operations dedicated to your neighborhood.  Look for providers that offer telephone support and have layers of expertise available within the organization to ensure that your unique application gets every consideration necessary.
